Fix Your Genes to Fit Your Jeans

2 - 4 Weken

Fix Your Genes to Fit Your Jeans is a practical book that explains the value of genetic analysis in understanding your individual nutritional and metabolic strengths and weaknesses. It provides insight into how you can best manage your macronutrient intake for optimal health and weight management and includes easy-to-follow personalized diet, lifestyle and natural supplement guidelines. There is no "cookie-cutter" formula for nutrition. People do not fit into well-defined clinical "boxes" so using individual genetics to hone therapeutic regimens is exciting and, in terms of naturopathic medicine, the ideal for personalized health. This book allows you to better understand the genetic data you receive from commercially available platforms such as 23andMe. It explains SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms), how they affect your diet, metabolism and health and how your lifestyle influences their expression. I have chosen several SNPs that I consider to be the most important when treating my patients and include detailed explanations of these SNPs along with comprehensive treatment protocols. I also explain how you can use your genetic coding to choose the right balance of protein, fat and carbohydrate in your diet and how to plan your meal timing. Whether you wish to simply improve your health and eat according to your genes or want to idealize your weight and reduce the risk of metabolic disease, this book will provide important answers and guidelines to help you achieve your goals. Designed to be useful to everyone from health care practitioners to individuals interested in optimizing their health, my aim is to provide practical and useable information with comprehensive and easy-to-follow treatment options that make sense according to your genetic data. - Dr. Penny Kendall-Reed ND
