Choosing a diet based on your genetics

April 20, 2017

There are really only two types of clean diets.

Low Carb
You can go the paleo route: aka low carb high fat, moderate to high protein. Eat a bunch of animals with low starch veggies.

Low Fat
Or you can go the vegan plant-based route: high carb, low fat, low/moderate protein. Eat a bunch of starchy tubers and grains, fruits, and veggies. No animals, or some limited amount.

Many land on the right type of diet by trial and error but you can avoid a lot of wasted time and energy by analyzing your 23andme genetic information.

According to the data:
45% of people do better on a low carb diet
39% do better on a low fat diet
16% of bastards can lose weight on any diet

88% need to do high intensity exercise to lose weight
12% can lose weight on any exercise
