- Some gene variants will make you want to snack more.
- Others may make you want to snack more in the evening.
Genetic variants can make you favour savoury or sweet foods and can make you desire fatty foods to feel satisfied.
Knowing your genetic variant on the FTO gene, for example, will tell you how much protein you actually do need. Interestingly, if you have too much protein in your diet for what is right for your body, it has an inflaming effect and can make you put on fat weight.
-So It's Not Just All About Fats and Carbs.
This will also happen with variants in some of the inflammatory genes. Certain variants will put you at risk of having a low microflora and increased risk for gluten sensitivity and increased stress response. All these factors will influence how easy it is to put on weight and how hard it is to lose weight.
It is interesting to note there are certain species of gut flora that have been shown in studies to assist in losing fat, particularly gut fat.
Obtaining and maintaining a healthy weight can be difficult. There are so many diets out there it’s hard to know where to begin. However, knowing your own responses to foods as directed from your DNA and following a DNA based diet can give you the keys to finally having success.
