Genetic diets are scientifically proven to be more effective because they accept the limitations of normal dieting and embrace a different approach. 75% of dieters give up within the first month and 95% of people who lose weight on a diet end up gaining it back. That’s not an effective system.
A large-scale study done in 2007 and published in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that a typical diet helps people lose an average of 6% of their weight, typically 10 to 15 pounds and that most people put it all back on after five years. But recent studies have found that weight change in the first 2 months of a lifestyle change predicts weight changes 8 years later. (Unick et al., 2015). Where deprivation diets require willpower 24/7 – a losing strategy – Our food environments, which shape our eating behaviors more than we do, quietly push us to eat the way we always have. The good news is that these forces can be recruited to work for you instead of against you. The secret to better eating is to flip the script on troublesome eating behavior and environmental cues so we can mindlessly eat better rather than mindlessly overeating.
Personalized nutrition is paramount to making you feel 100%.
HEALTHY FOODS DIFFER BY INDIVIDUAL. Tito Lucretius Caro used to say “What is food to one man, may be fierce poison to others.”
There is nothing more personal than nutrition, and this is proven by science. Different people show vastly different responses to the same food, even though their individual responses did not change from one day to another. Identical foods produce “healthy” and “unhealthy” responses in different individuals, meaning healthful foods DIFFER BY INDIVIDUAL.
