New Research Says You'll Never Look Like Your Parents Did in Their 20s

October 01, 2015 1 min read

Ever notice a photo of your parents from their time in their 20s, and wonder how they stayed so slim? When you ask them, they may shrug their shoulders and account good genes for it, while you shake your head in disbelief that all the workouts in the world couldn't get you a waistline that small. Well, science says you should stop comparing. Apparently, adults living in the '70s were able to consume more food and be less active without the repercussions of excessive weight gain. In retrospect, present-day people aren't as lucky. They could eat the same number of calories and achieve the same level of exercise, but are more prone to packing on pounds. This comes from new research recently published in Obesity Research & Clinical Practice​. The study even found that young folks today weigh about 10 percent more than their parents. woman licking ice cream So what's the deal? You can blame the changing environment we live in, from pollutants to antibiotics and pesticides found in many foods, which are changing hormonal processes responsible for weight control. There's also the concern of lifestyle factors like exposure to light at night, stress, late-night eating; an increase in prescription drugs like antidepressants, known to cause weight gain and gut bacteria due to artificial sweeteners that many of us incorporate into our diets regularly. The findings are a total bummer, but at least you can stop trying to squeeze into that jumpsuit your mom handed down to you from her days as a 20-something! What do you think of these findings?
