Do These Exercises for Instant Weight Loss Even if You Have Obesity Genes

Surprisingly, cycling, stretching exercises, and swimming did not counteract the genetic effects on obesity

Some people have inherited obesity genes which increases their risk of becoming fat. But, in a hope for such people, researchers have identified certain exercises that are effective in combating genetic effects that contribute to obesity.

Regular jogging was found to be the best type of exercise for managing obesity. Besides, mountain climbing, walking, power walking, certain types of dancing and yoga practices also reduce the Body Mass Index (BMI) in individuals predisposed to obesity. Surprisingly, cycling, stretching exercises, and swimming did not counteract the genetic effects on obesity.

Obesity is a challenging condition to control because it results from interactions between a person’s genetics and lifestyle. Doctors often recommend exercise, but it has not been clear which kinds are best for curbing weight gain in individuals whose genetics increase their risk of becoming obese.
