Myths myths and more myths

It’s easy to blame our lack of motivation and our weight gain on others. How often do we hear, “it’s because of my family genes that I am overweight” or “work is the reason I don’t workout” etc etc. I am the “tough love” type of gal…. Stop making up excuses and stop blaming it on work, family genes, and time!!!!! I can easily name (which I won’t) five people, who have the most out of this world schedule, yet, still find the time to care about their health and body.

Article published on shine from Yahoo! goes into depth, explaining why these myths are in fact, false.

So now you know,

Only 25 percent of your body weight is determined by your genes – the rest is the result of your behavior.

And

Carbs don’t necessarily spell trouble!
