One Size and Diet Never Fits All
Most of the diet advice doesn't work because all body types don’t react in the same way to different foods. The underlying factor is your genes. Because of genetic differences, the same foods or diet plans don’t affect even identical twins in the similar fashion.
Some people in your life must be really healthy even after being on a high-fat diet while others might be developing high levels of cholesterol on the same diet. While you might be able to lose weight only by reducing carbs, your friend might be losing weight when they increase carbohydrates in their diet. The reason behind this is the genetic build of each individual. We are all genetically unique that is why what suits one does not suit another.
Then, how to create your sustainable weight management plan?
Choose personalized nutrition also called as the DNA-based diet.
Your DNA-based diet is derived from your genetic structure/DNA which is the blueprint of your life. Your genes can inform you which diet will work best for your body, or the fitness goals you want to achieve.
You can get your own personalized nutrition plan with an at-home genetic test. Your genetic test report will have an evaluation of your genetic build and recommendations to counter the risk factors that are highlighted. Following the recommendations, you can create your own diet plan that effectively helps you in losing or gaining weight.
Not just that, your genetic test report can also guide you about the kind of exercises you should be doing to enhance your fitness. Along with that it also lays out all the health conditions that you might be predisposed to. Knowing about them can empower you to prevent the onset of those health conditions by following the recommendations of genetic counsellor and also personalizing your lifestyle including your health checkup routine. Know what other things you can understand about yourself with a genetic test.
