    Secret to 'weight loss' is in the genes
    The secret to losing weight could be down to a person’s genes rather than how strictly they adhere to a diet, a research indicates.According to the study, some women are genetically programmed to have more success in shedding pounds through certain weight-loss schemes than others. The findings could explain why some people swear by the fat-rich Atkins diet to slim down, while others do better by stocking up on carbohydrates, reports telegraph.co.uk.Researchers from Stanford University in the US have made this discovery after taking mouth swabs from more than 100 overweight women who had tried various diets.They then analysed the women’s DNA for five genes linked to how the body uses fat and carbohydrate.

    The team found that women following diets that matched their genotype or genetic make-up, shed nearly 6 kg on average over a year – almost three times more than the other women.

    These women also saw their waistlines reduced by 2.6 inches on average, compared with 1.2 inches.

    Christopher Gardner of Stanford University, who led the study, said: “The differentiation in weight loss for individuals who followed a diet matched to their genotype versus one that was not matched to their genotype is highly significant and represents an approach to weight loss that has not previously been reported in literature.”

    He added that using genetic information would “be important in helping to solve the pervasive problem of excessive weight in our society”.

  • The Devil made me send this …

    Once upon a time there lived a king.
    The king had a beautiful daughter, the princess.

    But there was a problem. Everything the princess touched would melt. No matter what;

    Metal,
    Wood,
    Stone,
    Anything she touched would melt.

    Because of this, men were afraid of her. Nobody would dare marry her.

    The king despaired. What could he do to help his daughter?

    He consulted his wizards and magicians. One wizard told the king, ‘If your daughter touches one thing that does not melt in her hands, she will be cured.’

    The king was overjoyed and came up with a plan.

    The next day, he held a competition. Any man that could bring his daughter an object that would not melt would marry her and inherit the king’s wealth…

    THREE YOUNG PRINCES TOOK UP THE CHALLENGE.

    The first brought a sword of the finest steel.

    But alas, when the princess touched it, it melted. The prince went away sadly .

    The second prince brought diamonds.

    He thought diamonds are the hardest substance in the world and would not melt. But alas, once the princess touched them, they melted.

    He too was sent away disappointed.

    The third prince approached. He told the princess, Put your hand in my pocket and feel what is in there.’

    The princess did as she was told, though she turned red .

    She felt something hard. She held it in her hand.
    And it did not melt!

    The king was overjoyed. Everybody in the kingdom was overjoyed.

    And the third prince married the princess and they both lived happily ever after.

    Question: What was in the prince’s pants?

    M&Ms of course.

    They melt in your mouth, not in your hand.

    What were you thinking??

    I STILL WORRY ABOUT YOU SOMETIMES!
