I always find it interesting in these discussions that when someone says it's "genetic", then they're viewed as lazy or making excuses.
For me, the more interesting issue is whether living with "weight issues" is genetic or environmental. Like an alcoholic who's been sober for many years is still an alcoholic, I have been maintaining for almost 3 years but still have "weight issues." I still have to fight or resist certain urges every once in awhile. Where do those urges come from? Do I choose to have those urges?
Anyways, I know most people would "well, it's both, duh!" but those types of answers are boring.
