Take this test to find out if your weight is a product of your genes. Your weight is determined by a range of factors. If you're overweight, it may be because you have more fat cells than others, either from genetics, gaining weight early in life, or perhaps from pregnancy. These cells may not go away. Excess weight may also signal diabetes or other problems that you'll want to explore with your doctor. Keep in mind that the ultimate weight solution is to honor your body and to be a good steward--which may or may not include losing weight. To get you started, here is a quick test to gauge whether your excess weight is caused by your genes. Originally published in Spirituality & Health--The Soul/Body Connection ®.
