Can you blame your genes for the love handles?

I mean, I’ll recall my typical Christmas growing up.


and in true Italian style…


You had Nonna bringing layer upon layer of soft buttery pasta filled with juicy tomatoes and ground meat all mixed with melted mozzarella and topped with parmesan 


^^^ Leaving a luscious mountain of melting tomatoey, cheesey and meaty lasagna drowning in my mouth


Aunty making the fluffy, yet creamy, chocolatey and often ‘capable of getting you drunk’ Tiramisu 


Not to mention the traditional Roast Turkey


Soup for starters


Chicken fried in breadcrumbs 


Arancini (basically rice, cheese, and meat deep fat fried)


Nuts


Cream coffees


And, of course, Christmas cake


and then more cake…


So, can I blame genetics for my now HUUUGGEE appetite and tendency to finish EVERYTHING on my plate


Or is it the fact I grew up in an environment where not eating 5 plates of pasta meant you didn’t like Nonna’s pasta

^^^ ‘and I won’taaa bother next time. You can eata’ out at the pub.’ <<< Italian accent


For the Fruci nose?


Yes, I’m pretty sure that’s down to genetics.


But what about…


The spare tyre?


Your love of Ginger Bread men?


The larger plates you use?


Your lack of sleep which makes you hungry and handle carbs less well?


You see, genetics is probably the future of nutrition.


Telling you what you need to eat based on your DNA


But right now all these provide you with are snapshots. 


and just as I’ve explained before about your gut and how your bacteria in there are linked to many diseases, hunger, weight loss and how many calories you potentially absorb from food


These CHANGE


And can be changed by different types of diets and even exercise habits. 


You see, I have a different relationship with food now than I did growing up. 


The types and amounts of foods I eat are different. 


And although a ‘snapshot’ of your DNA may tell you that you handle carbs better or worse…


or that you have to do higher intensity exercise to lose weight and ditch the love handles


TODAY


Remember that:


1) You are always changing (you might have just had a great day that day)


2) Your genes are like the cards you’re dealt with.


I could get the best hand in poker


Yet, because I have no idea how to play…


I won’t win. 


In another words, your Finding Dory toy that sings all day is does nothing without the batteries (tip if you want a quieter Christmas Day ;-))


My point is that without the machinery, it won’t work.


And YOU are the machinery in all this diet and weight loss stuff.


Which is why – right now- based on the science 


And


My experience of helping others lose weight, keep it off and feel more confident in their favourite clothes.


The best diet in the world is the one you can do.


Which is exactly why I make things SUPER simple for you
