Are Your Genes Causing You To Carry Excess Weight ?
Did you know that almost half of the population have a variation in the gene associated with high levels of the hunger hormone, ghrelin and an increased desire for high fat foods - with 16% have a double variation !
Those with a double variation are 70% more likely to be obese.
Research shows that people who ate foods using recommendations based on their actual genetic makeup lost 33% more weight than those who didn't.
Are Your Genes Slowing Your Fitness Programme Down ?
Training responses and adaptations can vary widely based on genetic makeup.
Research highlights that undertaking fitness training programmes that are not matched to your genetic make up will hamper your success and will prevent you from getting the results you are desiring.
What Are Genes ?
And How Do You Know What You Should Be Eating ?
We are all different, and a part of this difference is as a result of our genetic profile. Genetically, there are the differences that we all see, such as eye and hair colour, but there are also the differences we don’t see, how we metabolise nutrients for example, the way we deal with toxins, how well we react to different types of exercise – we all interact with the environment in our own unique way.
A gene is simply a segment of the DNA. If you imagine your DNA as a cookbook, then your genes are the recipes. Written in the DNA alphabet - A, T, C, and G - the recipes tell your cells how to function and what traits to express. For example, if you have curly hair, it is because the genes you inherited from your parents are instructing your hair follicle cells to make curly strands.
