Homework queston: And a foolish one in my opinion. You need to know your instructor's prejudices. The scientific answer would be age, genetics, whether you have been injured, have adequate nutrition. Exercise actually matters too, as dies avoiding smoking and excess alcohol. Food choices matter much less and obesity is most serious as a marker for lack of exercise.
