I did the 23andme genetic testing service and OMG guys, it explains so much about my weight. Growing up I ALWAYS had trouble losing weight. I was the chubby kid. I was the fat one. When it came to working out and dieting, I had to train so hard and eat so clean to only see results that don't even compare the girls who can eat junk food all day and still have flat abs. So it always made me wonder, am I just supposed to be "fat"? Am I predestined to have a soft body with no ab definition? Is it in my genes – my DNA – to weigh more?

Watch this video to find out what my DNA says about my weight. You'll find the information shocking. It pretty much explains why there is no such thing as a diet or a workout that works for everyone. We are all so different.

Here is where I get all of my music! Epidemic Sound:
