If Genetics don't matter, I wonder how Shaq got to be over 7ft tall and 300lbs and Gary Coleman only got to a little over 4 ft. Genetics do have a roll to play,but this is not to be used as a cop out or an excuse. We all have to play the hand we were dealt. Has anyone ever heard of Somatotypes. There are 3: 1. Endomorph- body types that contain high body fat,and gains weight easily 2.Ectomorph- body types that contain low body fat and does not tend to gain weight or build muscle easily. 3. Mesomorph- body type that contains high muscle mass and low body fat and can shed and gain weight with relative ease. Boy what I would give to be a Mesomorph(smile). Seriously though, body builders will tell you (even the ones on steroids) that all of the intense training in the world can only get you so far, it is genetics that separate the best from the rest.
Even with all I just said we still need to follow the tried and true method of weight loss and that simply is eat less and move more.
