I'm Overweight Because of My Family

Many dieters still think they are overweight because their family is overweight. It's true that being overweight seems to run in families: in any store you can see overweight parents with their equally overweight children. But take a look at their shopping trolley! Chances are it contains a host of high-calorie food items.

If this family stopped buying high-fat and high-sugar calorie-dense foods and ate a diet rich in fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and low-fat dairy food, would they be overweight? Unlikely.

Truth is, bad eating and exercise habits run in families, not overweight people. Never lose sight of the fact that excess weight doesn't appear out of nowhere. It goes in your mouth and stays inside you due to lack of exercise.
