Cracking the Weight Code

Ever wondered why some folks seem to breeze through weight management while others find it a puzzle? It’s not just about looking good; it’s about avoiding health troubles like high blood pressure, diabetes, and more. But here’s the scoop: Is it all about “obesity genes”?

Picture 2019, when the University of Cambridge gathered genes from 14,000 folks – the lean, the heavy, and the middle-of-the-road. They asked questions about daily habits. And what did they find? In the heavy group, there was a certain genetic trail that made staying slim tough. But in the lean bunch, these genes were like the stars – fewer, and some were even new.

But genes aren’t the only scriptwriters here. Lifestyle also has a say. Think of genes like the pen and lifestyle like the hand holding it. While genes may whisper certain things, lifestyle decides what’s loud.

So, how many calories should I eat in a day to lose weight? Theoretically, cutting 500 calories a day can result in a 0.5kg loss in a week, calculated as follows: 500 calories X 7 days = 3500 calories = 0.5kg body fat For example, if you eat less than 150 calories daily, you will lose 8kg yearly.
