The Top Article of the Week
In this week’s top fitness article, Krista dives into the problems with the “thrifty gene” hypothesis. Yes, the theory makes sense but some potential issues include:
- Some people are obese. But some are not.
- Genetics matter, but it’s complicated.
- Epigenetics also matter, and it’s also complicated.
- It’s not just about how much fat, but where it goes and why it’s there. Again, complicated.
- For most people, past a certain point, it’s hard to put on a lot of weight on purpose.
