Personalized Weight Loss

Personalized Weight Loss

Dr. Partovi has found that guiding his patients toward a healthy diet, individualized based on genetic, epigenetic, and biochemical factors is by far the most effective means of reducing unwanted fat mass while optimizing health potential. Ever wonder why some people thrive on high-fat, low-carb “Paleolithic” diets, while others get sick unless they are on a mostly vegetarian diet?

Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo, whose seminal work on blood types in human nutrition during the 1980's and 90's culminated in the grand classic work of genetic nutrition, "Eat Right for Your Type," has in the intervening years expanded the original idea of a diet based on one's blood type to include additional genes, as well as the roles of epigenetics, gene expression, environmental toxins, and hormesis on dietary personalization. His singular work has been utilized and praised by luminaries from Dr. Oz and Oprah to Tommy Hilfiger, Megan Fox, Courtney Cox, Elizabeth Hurley, Jennifer Lopez, Hugh Grant, Ellen DeGeneres, Demi Moore, and Gweneth Paltrow to name a few.

Using an advanced computer intelligence named SWAMI, the product of over 30 years of pioneering work in personalized nutrition by Dr. D'Adamo; Dr. Partovi has unlocked the specific factors that determine the optimal diet for your individual physiology to tailor a nutrition plan to your personal needs.

Genuine Weight Loss Goes Deeper

Over several decades, researchers have identified over 1,000 common foods that contain powerful proteins called lectins. Here’s the key: These food lectins become active and important for you when they interact with your individual immune system. For example, after consuming any number of foods containing wheat, certain people can experience bloating and other digestive problems. This may be more than a simple “food intolerance.” The walls of the stomach and intestines are lined with sensitive receptors that interact with, and respond to, the lectin in wheat. At first, you may only experience that wheat lectin interaction as a mild digestive problem, or a dull, listless feeling after consuming foods not right for you.

Over time, the result is a steadily deteriorating state of health, loss of energy and weight gain.

The good news is, by removing these targeted foods and replacing them with foods more suitable for your unique biochemistry, you begin to experience the benefits of a leaner, cleaner, more energetic body.

Over 80% of Us Can't Tolerate Most Weight Loss Products

Most so-called weight-control shakes are only about limiting calorie intake without taking into consideration your unique biochemical needs. Do you wonder why so many people lose weight, only to gain it back—and then some; or why many people may lose weight in the face and neck, but remain persistently overweight around the middle? Improper and unhealthy weight loss leads to unbalanced and unhealthy weight distribution.

Genuine weight loss and genuine, lasting health comes from considering how your body interacts with the foods and beverages you consume. Dr. D’Adamo’s pioneering and on-going research confirms that your genetics are the single most important determinant in how your body interacts with the foods you eat and whether those foods cause inflammation, digestive problems, or weight gain for you.

For example, wheat and corn by-products are two of the key weight-gaining foods for over 80% of Americans. Amazingly, most popular “low calorie” diet bars and shakes contain wheat and corn-derived ingredients which for such people:
  • Inflames your digestive tract lining and interferes with your digestive process, causing bloating.
  • Slows down the rate of food metabolism, so you don't efficiently burn calories for energy.
  • Compromises your production of insulin.
  • Upsets your hormonal balance, causing water retention, thyroid disorders, and other problems.
By simply replacing the key weight-gaining foods in your diet, you can begin not only helping your body lose weight, but also gain more energy.
