Genetics, what do they have to do, if anything, with my feeling and looking great?

Attaining optimal health is more than just implementing a diet of high quality foods and a little hard work.

You see, it really does start with understanding and valuing your very own biochemical individuality. Without this understanding, you will find yourself just spinning your wheels!

Have you ever thought about how special you are? No, I mean it, each of us are unique individuals. So, by being different than everyone around you, doesn’t it seem odd that there are so many cookie-cutter, one-diet-fits-all, as well as universal nutritional programs out there? It isn’t only odd, it completely wrong!

Well, if you have, now you know why; your diet CANNOT be like everyone else because you are NOT everyone else!

Have you ever wondered why some people do well on the fat and protein dominant Atkins Diet, but others just gain weight and become ill?

Have you ever wondered why some people can thrive on the Zone Diet, a balanced program combining similar amounts of protein, fat, and carbohydrate, while it doesn’t seem to benefit others at all?

Have you ever wondered why some people obtain optimal health on the carbohydrate friendly Pritikin Diet, why others seem to go backwards concerning their health?

Concerning your nutritional regimen or diet, you cannot ram a square peg in a round hole. It just doesn’t work.

So, yes it is true, that if you are consuming the very best quality foods, and have improved your lifestyle, and your health is not immensely improved, it is probably because you are not eating correctly for you.

“What is food to one man is bitter poison to others.”-Lucretius

Remember, you are unique, so beginning to understand the best foods and combination's of foods just for you may be the last piece to the puzzle for you to begin looking and feeling better than ever before.

Your genetic make-up is unique and is what makes you special.

And it is that individuality that helps determine the best nutritional regimen for you. Yes, genetics matter!
