How to eat for your DNA

A classmate shared this article which I am so greatful for and wanted to share it as well. It mentions that one may have the "Sweet tooth gene" which could possibly cause someone to become obese. "

The ideal heart disease–prevention diet may differ significantly among different people, says Ordovas, who studied the biochemistry of cholesterol before he got “hooked" on genetic-related research after attending an American Heart Association seminar on the topic in 1983. Preliminary research suggests that some people reduce their risk for heart disease most significantly by following a low-fat diet; others fare better on a higher-fat diet (assuming they choose healthy fats). Similarly, studies show that some people shed pounds on low-fat, high-carb regimens; others seem to do best on low-carb, higher-fat regimens. Genetic screening may eventually be able to pinpoint who’s who, allowing doctors to offer individualized advice."

I'm glad you got to share it too also check another article that i posted called Brain chemistry and Hunger witch really related to discussion 2 and chapter 3 when i found this article it was to late to post it on the discussion. it talks about how our Emotion(Happy! Stressed, Sad,...) will change the way we eat and what we eat. our Metabolism also will change the way we feel about hunger and how fast or slow our body will process of the intake food. 01-19-2015 10:10am
