I guess you can't always blame it on genetics. If your parents are obese than you should be obese right? Wrong. When I heard about the fat gene, I immediately sighed and not one nice thought popped into my head.  According to new research, you can overcome the fat gene with a little help. 

Staying physically active . If you remain active the gene becomes 27% weaker as compared to the couch potato. I wonder what Dr.OZ would have to say about this?  The key is eating a healthy diet,  exercise and everything in moderation. A minimum or 30 minutes of exercise is recommended to stay in shape.
