""We've shown that short-term exposure to a high-fat diet in utero produces permanent neurons in the fetal brain that later increase the appetite for fat," study senior author Sarah F. Leibowitz, director of the Laboratory of Behavioral Neurobiology at Rockefeller, said in a university news release. "This work provides the first evidence for a fetal program that links high levels of fat circulating in the mother's blood during pregnancy to the overeating and increased weight gain of offspring after weaning.""

High-Fat Diet While Pregnant May Produce Obese Kids - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/hsn/20081115/hl_hsn/highfatdietwhilepregnantmayproduceobesekids;_ylt=A k.3.6mIiMrOROSu30ycSI7VJRIF - broken link)


So if you had weight issues...Did you mom chow down on the fat laden snacks?

I know my mom didnt as she was never into that type of food anyway.
S.o. 's mom was and did. I lose weight a little more easily than he does when he goes freestyle. When I watch what he eats like a hawk he loses just the same. He payed attention to his "here and there bites" of food/drink and saw how it really added up.
But he does get the muchies for things more than I do.
