Feeling lazy? Blame it on your genes
Ever wondered why you struggle to get yourself to the gym? Well, the answer may lie in your genes.
Scientists now claim a desire to keep fit and do regular exercise is hereditary and passed down through the generations. The discovery means that people who suffer from laziness could be treated in the future with drugs, which target the genes that promote activity.
This could provide a major breakthrough in the battle against obesity.
Experts have long said that dieting without increasing exercise is unlikely to result in significant weight loss.
