A New Way to Overcome Obesity

The highly excessive fat known as obesity has been in the news for years. People have developed fat farms to help these obese people lose weight and become trim. There is the lap band and bariatric surgery. Now there is something new on the market. It is called Nutrigenomics. This means that foods react to the body in various ways and if the food is not effective, it can cause certain types of cancers, diabetes, weight gain, heart disease and even strokes. It was recently discovered that certain types of foods can make a person put on a lot of weight and other types of foods can keep a person lean and trim.

Obesity and Diet

The only way an obese person will be able to lose weight and keep it off is if he is put on a diet that matches his genetic makeup. This in turn will help prevent Type 2 diabetes and heart disease that are associated with weight gain. It can’t be done until people agree to a genetic profile. It might seem like a cliche, but the best place to start is to get a consolation with your primary physician and see if genetic profile testing for a diet is the right thing. A simple swabbing of the inside of the cheek has the answer to the type of diet an obese person should be on.


Once the cheek swabbing test is completed, the results will come in about how many carbohydrates, fats, and proteins the individual needs to have in order to lose weight. In most cases, clients will be asked to stay away from processed foods, vegetable oil, high-fructose corn syrup, and sugar. People beginning the Nutrigenomics diet might be asked to try a leafy green salad and try experimenting with other foods. Experts claim that peanut butter, grain bread, salmon, liver, and chicken are among many of the foods that are healthy to try in such a diet. It is recommended that obese people trying to lose weight drink tomato juice, eat dark chocolate, and drink tea, and wine.

Sample Menu

A sample menu includes beginning with crepes topped with vanilla flavored whipped cream, some seasonal fruit, and a cup of hot tea. Lunch can consist of sardines on a slice of whole grain toast topped with a dab of sauerkraut and mustard with a side of green leaf salad, and a small glass of tomato juice. For dinner a person can have some beef heart tips, served rare with some bone marrow medallions, some broccoli in garlic butter. The diet allows people to have no more than a half an ounce of dark chocolate.
