What Makes Me the Weight I Am?
Theres no easy answer to this question. Your genetic makeup, the physical traits that get passed down to you from your parents, plays a big part in determining your size and weight. __________ But if your parents are smaller than average, you may want to rethink that professional basketball career!
The same goes for your body type. Have you ever heard someone say a person is big boned? Its a way of saying the person has a large frame, or skeleton. Big bones usually weight more than small bones. __________
Like your height or body type, your genes have a lot to say about what your weight will be. But thats only part of the story. Being overweight can run in someones family, but it may not be because of their genes. __________ And even though some kids gain weight more easily than others, when they eat right and exercise, most kids can be a healthy and happy weight thats right for them. Its truethe way you live can change the way you look.
How much you weight is a balance between the calories you eat and the calories you use. __________ If you spend your free time watching TV, your body wont use as many calories as it would if you played basketball, skated, or went for a walk. If you are in balance, your weight will stay right for you as you grow. But if you eat more and exercise less, you may become overweight. __________
A Thats why its possible for two kids with the same height, but different weights, to both be the right weight.
B If you eat more calories than your body needs to use, you will gain too much weight.
C Poor eating and exercise habits also run in families and this may be the reason the members of a family are overweight.
D However, many overweight people have difficulty reaching their healthy body weight.
E On the other hand, if you eat less and exercise more, you may lose weight.
F If both your parents are tall, there is a good chance youll be tall.
