Graff borrowed some of the descendents of the skinny fruit flies from Doane to take a closer look at their genetics. Sure enough, fruit flies with efficient copies of the adipose gene were very thin. Those with poorly functioning copies were pudgier.
If there was one good copy and one bad one, the flies were medium weight.
“The gene was more like a volume control rather than an on/off switch,” Graff says.
Graff and his colleagues wondered how good copies of the gene would impact survival in the wild. So they subjected the skinny flies to famine-like conditions. Not surprisingly, they did poorly. From an evolutionary perspective, this gene is the one that helps animals do well in affluent times — very much like the situation in western countries today, says Graff.
“In times of plenty, these super skinny, sleek and fast flies can easily get away from predators,” Graff adds. “But in times of shortage, they don’t make it.”
Genetics are everything. Depending on the genetics and where you live you will have to fight your genetic destiny. Skinny framecels in Japan are worshiped, where as the average western is genetic trash there. Skinny fat people are worshiped in the western world, where as framecels are treated terribly. If you have fat genetics you're going to have to cheat your shit genetics and eat low calories. If you were born a framecel you will have to eat a lot of calories and gym to gain weight because of your shit genetics.Browcel said:Stfu about genetics. Its simple. Eat more = fat. Eat less = skinny.
EDIT: btw I anyone want to lose weight they need to start counting their calories. Working out helps, but you most likely wont see results unless you count your calories daily and eat the correct amount to lose weight. Good article.
So wrong. I eat like a horse, constant red and white meat, fish and fast food, and I don't put on weight at all. I eat more than everyone I know and I'm a 6'1" 155lbs twig.Browcel said:Stfu about genetics. Its simple. Eat more = fat. Eat less = skinny.
Same here. I'm pretty sure you heard the dumb sentence "you should eat more" a million times in your life?FramecelQuasimodo said:lol at this chad. Genetics are fucking everything, normies enjoy thinking that we all have the same body and they deserved their shitty chubby skinny fat bodies. I'm a framecel so I can understand their pain. Normies automatically assume i'm anorexic. Fatties evolved to where their genetics are telling them it's a 24/7 food epidemic so they have big stomachs and eat as much as humanly possible in the moment to store fat so they won't die when food is low.
