Genetic Type Eating Plan for Weight Loss


An eating program that aligns with his/ her genetic type

Researchers from Novosibirsk, informally known as the “Capital of Siberia,” have created a new eating plan, in which a dieter follows a diet plan that matches his or her genetic kind. In the beginning, a specialist first testes a patient’s blood sample for 9 genetic markers. Because each marker reveals specific weight-gaining inclinations, a person would then follow an eating program developed basing on his genetic type.


To develop an optimal weight, some are required to do intensive physical exercises, whereas others must refrain from eating one or two foods or beverages, including coffee or beer. Basing on the genetic type, simply drinking particular beverages can reduce the development of some forms of tumors or, conversely, increase the probability of having a heart disease.

Both the blood test and its analysis cost 3,500 Russian Roubles (around 106 USD). Yet, family history do not change over time, researchers at the Institute of Chemical Biology and Fundamental Medicine told Itar-Tass, so a client would need to be studied just once. For best outcomes, the genetic profile should be maintained in childhood, the scientists suggest maintaining healthy eating habits from the start.

The Russian Academy of Medical Science informs that 60 percent of females and 50 percent of males over the age of 30 have excess weight, while a full 30 percent are suffer from obesity. (In the U.S., one of three adults are obese.) Unsurprisingly, the issue is at its worst in the Siberian Federal District, where the obesity rate is nearly 1.5 times the country’s average.


Specially Designated Nutrition

An analogous tack is taken by Dr. Peter D’Adamo, a naturopathic physician, who introduced the Blood Type eating plan basing on the four blood groups. Lately, he developed a “GenoType Diet,” which is founded on simple measurements combined with blood type data. In this second example of specially-designated nutrition, D’Adamo classifies humans into one of six basic epigenotypes (the specific way genes may be expressed): Hunter, Gatherer, Teacher, Explorer, Warrior, and Nomad.


He describes the Hunter as naturally tall, thin, and intense, with a tendency to systemic burnout when overstressed; “the Hunter’s modern challenge is to preserve energy for the long haul,” D’Adamo shares on his website. The Gatherer is full-figured, even when not obese, and though saddled with metabolic challenges, can become an example of an ideal health when eating healthy. The Teacher has chemical synchronicity and stamina and is built for durability: strong, sinewy, and stable; this genotype is a balance genotype.

On the contrary, the Explorer is made to get shaped according with environmental changes. This genotype’s weakness is hormonal imbalances and chemical sensitivities. The Warrior is a surrogate: long, lean, and healthy while young. Such body types rebel in midlife, and need an optimal diet and healthy lifestyle to fight early-aging. The last type, the Nomad, is sensitive to environmental conditions, especially, changes in altitude and barometric pressure, and may be vulnerable to neuromuscular and immune issues. Despite such susceptible features, a well-conditioned Nomad ages charmingly.
