Biological Imperative?

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

I hear a lot about some people being genetically programmed to overeat, that it is their destiny. They just sigh and eat everything in sight because that is their biological fate. But if your husband slept with every available woman because men are biologically programmed to mate constantly to propogate the species, your wouldn't tolerate that excuse for a minute. (I hope!)

Fortunately we don't need to cave to any genetic imperative to eat beyond the food necessary to maintain health. There are many who have found ways to defeat the initial call of the Cheetos. Or the Reeses. And they DO call! My biology is not my destiny. I have trained myself and now my training is my destiny, as long as I keep up my training regime every day.

Take that genes!! I win!!
