When tackling a subject like obesity and associated weigh-loss therapies, one must take into account many factors. People suffering from metabolical issues indeed know how difficult it can be to keep those extra kilos in check. A new study shows that our genetical background is linked to weight-loss capabilities.
By using this newly discovered fact, both doctors and nutritionists will be able to come up with alternative weight-loss strategies, which are more targeted and personalized.
It is rather a known fact that the holidays can sometimes become a burden in terms of weight-related issues. Usually, during the jolly season, people are prone to indulge themselves in eating various delicacies.
Indulging yourself once in a while isn’t exactly a crime, but the danger of overeating is always close by. And overeating can become an issue if one is suffering from weight-related diseases, such as morbid obesity, increased blood pressure and diabetes.
But it would seem that you won’t have to worry about those extra kilos anymore because the doctors have come up with a way to help you lose fat quite fast and efficient.
During this season, the National Health Institute is engaged in several projects concerning best weight-loss strategies. According to their appraisal of the situation, the key of losing those extra pounds accumulated during the season lies in your genetical background.
Both obesity and capacity to shed off body fat can be tied to our genetical background and predispositions. All and all, researchers have identified almost 150 genes which can affect our girth, eating habits and body-to-mass index.
Scientists have discovered that genetical background is linked to weight-loss capabilities. Thus, they have begun to understand how certain individuals are capable of ingesting large amounts of foods without putting on weight and why some of them are always struggling those extra pounds put on during the holidays.
The study was published on the 22nd of January, under the title “Obesity, Society, Obesity”. One of the conclusions drawn by this article was that although more than 2500 genetic tests are currently available, there are being used in order to determine certain malicious phenotypes.
Also, it stresses out that genetical tests should also be made standard procedures in case of weight-loss therapies.
In the end, the research committee stated that more research is needed in order to further understand the physiological relation between genetics and weight. For now, most of them recommend healthier diets, lots of exercises. They also cautioned their patients about keeping their eye on what they eat during the holidays.
