Summary The human diet has changed dramatically over the past ten thousand years, but our genetic blueprint has not--our bodies are not designed to process the types of food we are fed today. Diets don't work either: less than 6 percent of weight-loss attempts succeed. This book presents nutrigenomics, the science of how food talks to our genes, which shows how the forces that keep weight on can actually be reprogrammed to burn fat and keep weight off for good. By learning how to work with our bodies instead of against them, we can ignite the natural fat-burning furnaces that lie dormant within us. The result is an eight-week plan customized to help you lose weight based on your own unique genetic needs.--From publisher description.
