Which diet is best for you? Vegan, Paleo, Keto or Carnivore?
One of the most difficult health questions we face is which diet is right for us? Everyone seems to swear by a different diet, promising you the world if you just adapt to the diet they’re on while others share their horror stories on that exact same diet. Researchers have been trying to get the answer for a really long time, but there is no clear consensus on what the best diet is. That's because a large part of what diet is best for you has to do with your personal genetics. FYI: As a PureClean Performance Club member you will be able to assess and analyze your genetic code as well as assess your personal epigenetics with two very unique platforms. Read on to learn more about 3 important genes that are related to diet - specifically the 3 macronutrients that every diet is based around - carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. PPARA Gene & Fat Burning
The PPARA gene plays an extremely important part in burning fat. It codes for a protein that helps your body enter ketosis - a process where fat is used as energy instead of carbs. One variant of this gene reduces your body’s ability to convert the extra fat into energy, which means this extra fat is not being broken down, putting you at an increased risk for heart disease. So, if you’re thinking of following a keto diet, which is much higher in fat, then you’ll definitely want to check which variants you have, because the keto diet isn’t necessarily the best diet for everyone. Even if you are committed to a keto diet because it helps you in certain ways, it's still important to know how this gene is functioning and learn about specific supplements and lifestyle approaches to improve it if you are committed to a keto diet. TCF7L2 Gene & Carbohydrates The TCF7L2 gene has a strong association with carbs and type-2 diabetes. How? TCF7L2 expression determines how well your body processes glucose (blood sugar), which comes from the breakdown of carbs. If you have the risk variant for this gene, you may not respond well to a carb heavy diet, leaving too much glucose in your blood. Too much blood sugar = type-2 diabetes. As you can see from the SNP table below, this person’s genes are somewhat of a problem.
So if this is the case for you too, what should you eat?
There’s an important saying that says "the food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine, or the slowest form of poison."
Understanding your genes is the best step you can take to make sure that the food you eat is the natural medicine you need to optimize your health.
