How does #DNA effect your #diet? Let’s face it, 99.9% of our #DNA is the exact same as every other human on the face of this planet but it’s the unique 0.1% that sets us apart! Have you ever wondered why the Keto #diet for example, works so great for your friends but you felt miserable, lethargic, no energy, and maybe even got sick from it? Or how about those friends a
nd family members who seem to eat all the carbs in the world but if you eat one donut, you gain five pounds. Well, it is because of the that 0.1%!
That is why so many people who follow a so called “#HealthyDiet” fail! #Diet is not a one size fits all and up until recently there was no way for someone to understand what foods were best for them and their genetic needs without taking the time to trial and error different nutritional plans. Genetics plays a significant role, up to 70%, and dozens of genetic variants are contributing factors to obesity.
Think of your body like a car or truck, some run on diesel and some run on unleaded but unleaded vehicles will not run-on diesel and a diesel engine will not run on unleaded. If you are not feeding your engine (your cells/genetics) what they need, it will eventually stop running and break down.
#DNAtesting has brought about #nutrigenetics – the study of how our genes respond to food and beverages. #Nutrigenetics has now made it possible for us to personalize which nutritional plan and foods work best for our genetics. These foods energize your cells, your #brain, and help you feel your best. On the other hand, foods that are toxic for you, zap your energy, your focus and brain power, and are the root causes of many diseases such as cancer, diabetes, auto-immune diseases, and obesity. “One man’s food is another man’s poison” ~ Lucretius (99 – 55 BC)
Imagine having the confidence to know what foods to or not to eat….do you think you be able to maintain a #healthy #weight? Do you think having more energy would help you at the gym? What would it do for your confidence? Well, studies suggest with genetic intervention, subjects are 50% more likely to stick to lifestyle changes, with nutrition being the most consistent lifestyle change observe
