Both lifestyle (Think: diet, exercise, sleep) and environment are important factors that determine your waistline. Instead of mourning your genetic destiny, use it as opportunity to make healthy changes not an excuse to do nothing. Here are three ways you can shape your genetic destin. “We know from research that some genetic predisposition increases your risk to be overweight and obese, but it can be overcome by lifestyle,” says Zhaoping Li, MD, PhD, director of the Center for. So if you have an obese or overweight individual in your family, be aware of the fact that you may have a genetic predisposition.

This may make you more likely to become overweight. While this may seem like a grim outlook, it doesn’t have to be. It’s easy to feel guilty about being overweight.

But do your genes really destine you to be one of the 33 percent of Americans who are overweight or the 38 percent who is obese? Turns out, the answer is no, but there is mounting scientific evidence of a tipping point where losing weight—and keeping it off—gets a heck of a lot more difficult. Weight and Genetics.

The good news is that people can and do overcome this genetic propensity toward obesity every single day. People who are genetically at risk for weight gain and obesity can utilize information from DNA testing to make better-informed lifestyle decisions and changes that. A recently reported analysis of studies on an obesity gene, FTO, has concluded that if obesity “runs in the family” then running will prevent the family from becoming obese.

You can alter your genetic destiny with a healthful diet. Research shows that physical activity alone has a pronounced impact on genes, lowering risk for Type 2 diabetes and obesity. And in a. How to Escape Your “Genetic Destiny” Because family history can alert you to an increased genetic risk of certain health problems. But you should understand an important distinction here.

Being born with a genetic defect that causes a health problem is not the same as being born with an increased genetic risk for a health problem. Facing Your Genetic Destiny. The use of predictive genetic tests is still limited to a handful of relatively rare and highly hereditary diseases, but that’s about to change. Should you be tested for fat genes?

Many experts say no. Veerman says screening individuals for genes that predispose them to obesity makes little clinical sense.

So, yes, a family history of obesity may increase your odds of ending up overweight, but that just means you may have to put forth more effort than those without such genetics to get to a healthy weight.

While 10 percent of the obese population has genetic challenges that may make a supermodel contract impossible, the bigger risk with these genes is not in the weight itself but in the predisposition to risks associated with obesity.

Some studies have reported that the risk allele that confers a predisposition to obesity may play a role in the control of food intake and food choice, suggesting a link to a hyperphagic phenotype or a preference for energy-rich foods.
