I don't agree with that Aaron. If it is genetic, maybe there can be some sort of research and cure. It's not a cop out to think that possibly genetics plays a huge part into being fat/skinny. I'm not talking about in shape or out of shape, but I know people... for example Ryan B, who doesn't work out, eats, sleeps, drinks on a regular basis, and that's about it. And is rail skinny, so is his brother MattB, so is his dad Mike. Now if all of them have the same "skinny genes", it makes sense.
My grandmother was overweight, my mom too, both dieted, etc, and worked their asses off to maintain a decent weight. Now what if it was genetic, and we found a cure for guys like me, who don't really want to spend time in a gym, if they dont' have to? Would it still be a cop out to working out, or a medical cure to obesity?
