An expert on food sensitivities helps you and which will set your metabolism free!
Decades ago, nutritionist Lyn- Genet Recitas fi rst noticed that black beans and salmon seemed to cause “instant weight gain” for a number of dieters at her New York clinic. To figure out why, she began carefully tracking her clients’ intake and poring over scientific research. Ultimately, she learned that— due to our genes, lifestyle choices, even bacteria in our guts—“we each have unique body chemistry that can react in very different ways to the same food. What’s nutritious and slimming for one triggers inflammation and weight gain in others.” Recitas used this knowledge to help thousands create extremely effective personalized diets, grabbing the attention of Dr. Oz. “I was so interested because many folks out there are doing all the right things but still gaining weight,” Dr. Oz said. Hidden inflammatory reactions to Greek yogurt, turkey and even asparagus help explain why. “Surprisingly, it’s often the healthy foods making you fat!” Israel’s massive Personalized Nutrition Project yielded the same conclusion. While tracking 800 volunteers at over 46,000 sittings, scientists found that identical meals cause severe and inflammatory blood-sugar spikes for some but no spike at all for others. And study head Eran Segal, PH.D., now says an approach like Recitas’ is key to successful weight loss!
Adds Recitas: “I can personally lose weight while eating cheese by the boatload, but I gain a pound if I have a single egg. Others tell me they lose while eating burgers but not chickpeas; pizza but not green beans. It’s about fi nding the right foods for your body. Once you do, weight melts away.” Devotees of Recitas’ latest book, The Metabolism Plan, say they’ve lost 14 pounds in 4 days, 30 pounds in 6 weeks and up to 170 pounds in all. How
