True, some of us have genes that could make us more prone to retain fat, but it’s the WAY we eat that makes us overweight and we have control over the WAY we eat!
The Pima Indian tribe was always fit; that is, until they started eating the Standard American Diet and adopting the Standard American Sedentary Lifestyle.
