Does it scare you that you don't have as much control as you thought? Or is does it scare you that everyone is different, and an approach that works for you won't work for someone else, and you're struggling to understand why?
Which only proves that food has the greatest part in obesity, not genes.
Thats an acceptable way to say it. Why dont I read it explained this way in the news-media?
You say appetite is genetic, I say its advertisement-brainwashing followed by mind-associations of something being desirable.

Thanks for the vids. Didn't watch them because I know Bruce Lipton, a scientist who does not leave consciousness out of the equation

This COMPLETELY ties in with the two major themes spoon fed to us night and day by all the media these days, print, television, news on the internet, every form of media out there....and these two themes are:
A.) "Your world is hideously dangerous!!!": i.e. All the alarmist headlines day and night. "Do you have the Cancer gene??? If you do your %65 more likely to die of prostate or breast cancer!!! Film at 11!!" Every day products in your house that can KILL you...film at 11!!" "The 5 things you are doing that are shortening your life!!!" "Your child's car seat can kill them!" "The plastic containers you put your leftovers in can kill you! Film at 11!!" This is endless and specifically playing on the publics' fears just to garner ratings.
B.) You are helpless and it's not your fault: i.e. All the ways you are not responsible for all the bad things you are doing and all the bad things that we are bringing your attention to endlessly are not your fault, give in, let the government help you, protect you, moderate you, regulate you into safety. Fast food is going no transfatty acids, states are banning smoking, taking away choices, because it's NOT our fault, we are helpless we must be taken care of due to our bad genetic codes that force us to engage in these bad behaviors... this is the message. Let Big Brother become your "nanny". Depression's in your genes you can't help it, take this pill.
And I think the two go hand in hand.

OK, you guys win. Ignore your family's medical history. It has nothing to do with you right? Just because your parents had diabetes doesn't mean you're at risk for it. Eat whatever sweets you want, and 'will' it away.
Ignore your excess risk of cancer because your parents and parents parents and parents parents parents died of it. Just think really hard it it will disappear.
They tested whether children aged eight to 11 carrying the higher risk gene variation had an altered appetite through height, weight and waist circumference measurements, and a questionnaire which asked parents about their child's eating habits.
They found that children with the higher risk version of the gene tended to overeat and to struggle to recognise when they were full.
The genes likely to influence the "onset of obesity" are likely to be concerned with something else such as the control of appetite or how their body deals with the elements in the food that might make them fat or store fat around their bodies
