DNA diets & what happened to Paula

Making a tower of cushions…

Going into the shower and pretending it’s “elf school”…

Cardboard boxes …

Baubles on the Christmas tree..

^^^ probably the most played with toys from my make over the past few days (even with some cool new stuff)

My point?

It’s always the simple stuff that works..

And this brings me on to DNA diets…

Sounds cool, right?

Know what to eat based on your DNA.

Sounds sciencey…

YET, the actual science right now says that choosing foods based on the current DNA tests they tell us to do for a £100  odd quid comes to conclusions that are about as weak as saying:

“people carry umbrellas when it rains. Umbrellas cause rain…”

Now, maybe in the future, we will be using DNA tests..

But right now? Even an $8 million study didn’t find any link between genes and diets.

Plus, what do you actually do with this information they give you?

Let’s say it  says to eat more veggies, fruits, exercise more and a bit more protein.

Well, I’m guessing you knew that already, right?

And it’s the same intolerance testing…

Great on paper.

Find out which foods you’re intolerant to.

But the truth is,

It’ll probably just give you sooo many foods 

That you end up eating less bread with delicious spreads and fillings…

Less carbs (and thus less fermentable fibre which causes bloating)

And maybe less junk / cake because of the dairy…

Which all

Makes us eat fewer calories …

And that’s the power of a placebo effect..

But given that most people know what to do…

Why is it so hard to stick to?

Well, when we start out in the 28 Day Kickstart,

We have a initial one to one to put together YOUR plan (not my plan, not Karen’s plan, or anyone else’s plan)…

And something that’s REALLY interesting 

Is how everyone defines eating “healthy” slightly differently:

“I eat well, I’m a veggie, I don’t eat meat”

“I eat well, I eat lots of oily fish and lean meat”

“I eat well, I eat no carbs”

“I eat well, I eat lots of fruit and veg”

“I eat well, I never eat fruit or carbs”

You get my point…

And that’s the problem..

We become attached to one diet

One way…

When actually 

You need to find your way..

Just like we do inside the 28 Day Kickstart 

Because right now…

Support and accountability 

Is the biggest indicator for the success of any transformation..

Just like Paula said on Christmas Eve:

“Merry Christmas matt. Just weighed and hit 20.2lbs before Christmas!

 And a huge 12 inches. So pleased and could never have done this without you and the team! My husband said the last time I was this fit was 9 years ago before I got pregnant. 

Thank you for giving me the motivation to start and more importantly keep going. “

Well done, Paula 😃

If you’d like to join Paula and co on the next 28 Day Kickstart specifically for ladies 40+?

Just message me with “28 Day” and I’ll get you the details.

Can be done with us in-person in our private studios in Marlborough and Devizes 

Or all from home (as Paula did)
