Almost half (49%) of all Americans report wanting to lose weight, yet the percentage of Americans aged 20 years or older who are overweight, including obese, is 70.7% (CDC 2014). There are plenty of reasons for weight gain that most people don’t consider such as volume and calories. Calories in versus calories out is a simply way of putting it, even if you are eating a healthy diet the volume at which you are eating might be grossly out of balance. But what about those who try one diet after another with no results?

Weight Control is a Genetic Matter

Genetics could be your barrier to sustainable weight loss. Everyone’s body is unique in how it utilizes carbohydrates, fats, proteins and many nutrients. You may notice trends in your family like being overweight and even certain food allergies, these are all links that could lead you to the right diet and exercise plan.
