Genes are responsible for determining your weight
It is not completely true. Our genes play a major role but they are not everything when it comes to losing weight. You cannot blame your genes if you have bad eating habits with a routine where there is no place for any type of exercise. Your lifestyle and food habits are the major factor that will decide how much weight you have overall. There are many people whose parents or grandparents were obese but they adapted healthy eating habits and exercise in their routine and have their weight completely in control and are very active.
