Scientists claim that they have discovered the clearest link yet between genes and obesity. - I reckon we're in red herring territory here, don't you?

Obese are born to put on weight, geneticists claim - Independent


"The researchers have identified a type of genetic variation that gives a child a 70 per cent higher risk of developing obesity compared to a child who has not inherited the genetic variant.

Although the scientists cannot explain how the gene involved makes obesity more likely, they believe the discovery will start a race to find the fundamental reasons why some people are born with a predisposition to being fat.

Professor Andrew Hattersley from the Peninsula Medical School in Exeter said: "As a nation, we are eating more and doing less exercise and so the average weight is increasing but, within the population, some people seem to put on more weight than others.""

That last paragraph of the extract should make the smell of red herring very pronounced because, you see, although as a nation we are doing less exercise, we are NOT eating more! - See actual evidence - Obesity is not caused by overeating; it is caused by fluid retention.

It is next door to impossible to lose weight safely by reducing calorie intake or doing more exercise, but it is incredibly easy for an obese person to lose weight fast by stopping eating salt or salty food and making sure they eat plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit. - Even if they eat big meals, provided the meals are low in salt/sodium, they will lose weight in the easiest, fastest, safest way possible.

If you, the reader of this blog, are obese and you have tried countless times to lose weight by dieting and never succeeded, then try my suggestion. - Go on! - Try it for a few weeks. - Most obese people who seriously, genuinely make a real effort to cut out salt and salty food lose about 14 pounds weight in the first month. - You could be one of them. - But it is very important NOT to diet or go hungry. - Just forget about calories. - They are little red herrings...(o:

One woman taking my advice lost 5 stone (70 pounds) in a year. - She did NOT cut down on food or calories at all.
