Become Slim and Healthy with a Gene Diet
There is one more method of diet that you can try, it is called the Gene Smart Diet. This diet method has the principle that the secret to weight control or reducing the risk of disease lies in the genes.
According to healthmeup, this diet method was formulated by Floyd Chilton, PhD. He believes that bioactive substances in foods send messages directly to a gene that makes the body more healthy. Gene Smart Diet emphasizes that no matter what we eat also affects the way genes work, including the immune system and anti-inflammatory in the body.
To maximize the way genes work, we must improve the nutritional intake by eating foods rich in fiber, polyphenols, and omega 3 fatty acids. This should be accompanied by exercise for weight loss and reduce the risk of disease. Here is the Gene Smart diet method that can be followed for 35 days.
– First day:
Only eat celery soup for one day. Calories consumed about 575 calories.
– Days 2-21:
This phase is called ‘adaptive phase’. During this phase you are allowed to consume foods and snacks with a total of 1600 calories a day.
– Day 22-35:
This phase is called ‘preconditioning phase’, you can eat meals and snacks with the total calories of 1,800 calories a day.
– Phase maintain weight
This phase is when a person has successfully completed all phases and achieve an ideal body weight that should be maintained. This phase allows the daily caloric intake of around 2000 calories.
The development of this diet is based on the principle that genes in the body is not made to work with processed food. If we eat healthy foods, gene will work effectively to improve the level of immunity.
Increase intake of omega-3 fatty acids is the key components of this diet. The benefit is to prevent osteoporosis, hypertension, menopausal problems and hormonal balance in women. High fiber consumption is also very helpful in weight loss and cleanse the digestive system.
