Does Your Diet Fit in Your Genes?

What if you could look into a crystal ball and predict the health problems looming in your future? And what if you could actually change your fate… with the power of what’s on your plate?

Believe it or not, you can. The day of genetic testing and nutritional prescriptions based on your, well, weak genes, has come.

According to Mark McClellan, Commissioner of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, "Nutrigenomics envisions a future in which personalized genetic profiling takes the guesswork out of deciding what you should eat. By adjusting nutrient composition in a person’s diet according to genetic profiles, gene-based nutrition planning could one day play a significant role in preventing chronic disease."

If you want to find out if your diet fits in your genes, there are several services available, including one from and a Solgar product called NutrigenomX. Expect to pay around $1,000.

[Ed. Note: If you don’t want to shell out $1,000 for genetic testing, you can STILL get fit. It’s as easy as making a few simple changes to your diet and exercise regimen. Start on the path to a better, healthier life right here.

Kelley Herring is the Founder & CEO of Healing Gourmet – a multimedia company that educates on how foods promote health and protect against disease. As a young adult, Kelley battled a debilitating health condition that went misdiagnosed by multiple doctors for more than a year. Finding no help from “modern medicine”, she turned to her own knowledge of biochemistry and her passion for health research. She soon learned that her symptoms were related to nutrition and within weeks, she charted a course back to health with nothing more than simple lifestyle changes and the power of the plate. The lessons she learned spawned the creation of Healing Gourmet. Kelley is a firm believer in vigorous exercise, moderate sun exposure and delicious, healthy, home-cooked meals. She is also the creator of Healing Gourmet’s Personalized Nutrition Software and Editor-in-Chief of the Healing Gourmet book series published by McGraw-Hill including Eat to Fight Cancer, Eat to Beat Diabetes, Eat to Lower Cholesterol and Eat to Boost Fertility.
