The Stunning Connection Between DNA, Blood Type & Weight Gain
Here’s something the one-size-fits-all diets don’t want you to know: When they don’t work, it’s their fault, not yours.
I first met Kathryn five years ago through some mutual friends. One afternoon, we were the first to arrive for an afternoon brunch, and as we waited for the others to arrive, she leaned in close.
“So, Dina, everyone tells me you’re the go-to person for nutrition advice. Can I ask you something?”
“Of course,” I responded, with a good idea where the conversation was going.
“I’ve tried six different diets over the past three years. Every time, I’ve lost ten pounds, then gained fifteen back. I try exercise. I try starving. I always end up miserable and angry with myself.”
I nodded slowly as she spoke. I’ve heard the same thing so many times.
“So what’s the deal?” she asked me, with a note of pleading in her voice. “Am I doing something wrong, or is this just how it is for me?”
“Well, let’s start simple,” I responded. “What’s your blood type?”
Kathryn looked puzzled. “I’m not sure. Why? Does it matter?”
“It makes all the difference in the world,” I answered. “And finding out is the first step on the road to real progress.”
If what you’re eating is at war with your specific needs, change is nearly impossible.
Here’s the real takeaway: You have a unique body, unlike anyone else’s, with unique traits and unique needs. There is no one diet in the world that can possibly work for everyone, because what is good for one person can be terrible for someone else. The key to lasting weight loss is finding the perfect diet for your specific individual needs.
Most of the people who visit me for weight loss don’t have a medical condition or genetic predisposition for obesity. They’ve just spent their lives eating things that their bodies don’t handle well. Simply eating fewer calories, or fewer carbs, or more vegetables, or any other dietary change won’t necessarily change that. If you force yourself to eat fewer calories of food that doesn’t agree with your physiology, you’ll be hungry, your body will be unhealthy, and you’ll just end up feeling like a failure, much like my friend Kathryn. But you didn’t fail. Your diet did.
You can’t find the right answers until you ask the right questions.
Kathryn came into my office a week later, beginning a journey that would help her reach her goal weight for the first time in her life, and to stay there ever since. She was surprised by some of the questions we asked, and the ways in which they were asked. We tested her bloodtype. We took her fingerprints. We measured her bone length. We checked her bioelectric responses to hundreds of stimuli through computerized biosurvey. All of this information came together to form a complete picture of her unique genome.
“Is all of this really necessary?” I could hear in her voice that she was already worrying about another failure.
“Absolutely necessary,” I assured her. “All of this information is telling us about who you are, and what your body needs. The more information we have, the better we can tailor our response to your genome, and find solutions that will really make a difference.”
In the end, some things became very clear. Every time Kathryn had dieted, she had cut back on meat, but her genomic type thrives on the right meats. So I put together a whole new dietary plan that emphasized healthy meats while reducing the foods her body wouldn’t process efficiently. I recommended some high-quality supplements that would turbo-charge her body’s natural detoxification processes, speeding up weight loss while helping her maintain energy. And we discovered the scar of an old childhood injury that was reflexing to her abdomen, causing serious GI issues and slowing her metabolism, which we cleared with the use of targeted therapeutic clay packs.
The results were astounding. Kathryn did wonderfully. She lost over sixty pounds, and for the first time in her life she felt in control. We’ve remained good friends since, and every time I see her, I am reminded what a difference optimal nutrition can make.
Isn’t it about time you found success?
Knowing what I’ve told you about the role your genome plays in metabolic efficiency and lasting weight loss, I’m wondering…
Do you know your blood type and genome?
Do you know what foods charge up your metabolism, and which slow it down?
Do you know the hidden causes of your weight gain?
Do you want to stop guessing and finally succeed?
You can’t change the past, but you can decide to start moving forward today. You can be the person you’ve always wanted to be. You can look better, feel better, and have the energy to do all of the things you’ve wanted to do but felt like you couldn’t. And it all begins with asking the right questions. Let me help.
