The Fat Gene – Are your genetics making you fat?

Is belly fat hereditary?Are ‘bingo wings’, ‘cankles’ and ‘moobs’ a gift from your parents or can you do something about it?

It really amazes me sometimes when people come to me and ask for help with their training and/or nutrition. They are convinced they are different and that somehow they are ‘prone’ to putting on weight and blame their physical appearance on a family member and immediately surrender to their fat fate.

Is this mammy and daddys fault? Or could It be the burger?

Is this mammy and daddys fault? Or could It be the burger?

I read an article in a supplementary magazine that came with the news of the world today and I have to say I found it kind of amusing at first but afterwards I realised the author had hit the nail on the head. She actually passes the blame on to the weight loss subject! Not the trainer, not society, your parents or Mc Donalds or anything, its YOU!

Your mother isnt making you sit on the couch eating Doritos and cheese.

Your father didnt revoke your gym membership.

Its YOUR fault.

Even the ones who actively seek help still ask the usual questions;

‘How do I get rid if this Belly Fat’

‘What’s the best way to tone your arms and lose weight fast?’

Thing is that the majority of people know exactly what they are doing wrong and yet they still think 1. They can’t do anything about it or 2. They need help to overcome it.

I have been asked a variation of this question at least 100 times this week.

One guy even said;

‘when I eat a lot of bread I feel bloated and I have to go asleep after.’

Well the big secret is to NOT eat them. Simple as that!

I told a good friend of mine who was seeking advice to simply write down what he ate yesterday and he was able to see clearly where he was going wrong and fix it himself… I literally did nothing!

Thing is, you know what you are doing wrong.

You know what it is you need to do to fix it.

It may be to ask for a little help but ultimately most of the ‘advice’ you are going to get will be something you’ve heard before or at least a variation of it.

The worst thing you can do is say ‘I already knew that’. You need to say to yourself

‘Am I already DOING that’

Well? Are you?

On that note… I want to ask you something…

Is there anyone that would be interested in receiving FULL support from myself over an 8 week period.

It will not just be personal training…


It will be a FULL nutritional, training and lifestyle management overhaul.

I’m not even sure if I will do it yet… if I get some serious applicants I will consider it. im just checking to see if there is an interest.

Drop me an email if you are interested, remember there will only be ONE so make that email kinda convincing : )
