Why One-Size-Fits-All Diets Don’t Always Work
Have you ever followed your doctor’s weight loss nutrition plan to a T, only to stubbornly remain at the exact same weight — or worse, gain weight?
There’s a reason for that, according to an ambitious research project by scientists in Israel. It means that a healthy diet for one person may not be healthy for another person. Yet doctors all over the world tend to determine the same kinds of foods to people strive with weight loss or health issues. Rather than recommend a cookie-cutter solution to weight problems, the researchers say, doctors could be more effective by recommending a personalized nourishment plan to a patient, based on the way that patient metabolizes certain foods. One-size diet is not working for all the people.
