The Revolutionary Guide to Taking Charge of the Genes that Control Your Weight.
Includes Menus and Recipes.
Breakthrough genetic research indicates that genes are not just on/off switches for characteristics we can't control (like gender or eye colour). Some genes, including those that shape our bodies, actually adapt to outside influences.
In 'Turn Off The Fat Genes!', Dr Neal Barnard draws on this cutting-edge research to create a revolutionary new program for activating thin genes and suppressing fat genes, a dramatic tool for sculpting away excess pounds to reveal the healthy, vital body that nature intended.
Dr Barnard begins by explaining the dynamics of nutrition and its impact on genetics. Once you understand how the genes that control your shape can be influenced, the next step is positive intervention.
The heart of Dr Barnard's book is a three-week gene-control program (complete with menus and recipes) specifically designed to influence the five key genes that determine:
1. Which foods you prefer
2. The strength of your appetite
3. Whether your calories are burned or stored as fat
4. How fast you burn calories
5. Your muscular type and ability to exercise
Dr Barnard's program enables all of us to enjoy the same virtually effortless weight control as the naturally thin people we have always admired.
