The secret to a slimmer you? Eating the foods that suit your genetic make up, says the latest diet to cross the pond
Reckon those sizeable thighs, wobbly butt-cheeks or spare tyre tummy can’t be shifted because they’re genetic? Think again! The latest eating plan sensation from the United States works on the theory that it’s possible to take control of some of that genetic make up and make changes for a slimmer, happier you.The new eating plan is the brainchild of naturopath Dr Peter J D’Adamo, and is based on
the belief that we have the power to alter the behaviour of our genes. “Whether you realise it or not, you’ve spent a lifetime altering your genetic activity,” he explains. “When you took your first sip of beer, you turned up the volume on your body’s genetic ability to detoxify alcohol. When you pick up an infection – even one as mild as a cold or flu – you boost the activity among your bone marrow genes, which produce the white blood cells you need to get better.”If you ‘re-program’ your genes – by feeding your body the nutrients that will tackle specific issues – you have the power to tackle the health problems and body shape tendencies specific to your genotype, claims Dr D’Adamo.
