Overview

The Gene Smart Diet is going to challenge all that you know about the relationship between genetics, weight gain, and disease risk. In the process, it's going to change your health and your life, for the better.

True, your genes help determine how much you weigh, whether you're prone to certain diseases, even whether you live to a ripe old age. But your genes are not an indelible blueprint—far from it! You help decide which genes express themselves and in what way, largely by what you're putting on your plate.
The Gene Smart Diet emphasizes the foods that your genes recognize and love. In the right mix and portions, these foods and their component nutrients communicate with your genes over complex genetic pathways, setting the course for lasting weight loss and optimum health.

Each day of the 5-week plan features a complete menu, with every meal and snack developed to Gene Smart guidelines. Rest assured, it isn't your typical diet food. On Gene Smart, you'll feel full and satisfied. You won't believe that you can eat like this and still lose weight.

But losing weight is just the beginning of what The Gene Smart Diet can do for you. By improving key biomarkers, it produces real reductions in your likelihood of developing certain chronic diseases—including those commonly attributed to aging. In fact, eating the Gene Smart way can help slow the aging process itself.

Grounded in cutting-edge science, proven to produce results, The Gene Smart Diet is the solution you've been waiting for-and the last diet you'll ever need.

This is one of the best informational books I have read concerning inflammation. As an FMS sufferer I have read different books associated with inflammation and pain and this one for me was very explanatory. I recommend this book to other FMS sufferer's along with the Inflammation Nation. When first diagnosed I researched and followed a diet by Edgar Cayce which was strictly no beef, no pork and no carbinated drinks. I have done this for 19 years. After reading Gene Smart Diet I purchased the Inflammation Nation and have incorporated some of the diet suggestions from this book. My pain is more controlled through diet modification. I highly recommend the diet and reading both books.
