Dear Kim
I attended a very interesting workshop on the genetic determinants of overweight this morning, and it was fascinating to hear that research into our genetic makeup has shown that there are certain people who do tend to gain weight dramatically when they eat certain kinds of food. You may benefit by having a gene test done to determine if you are such an individual. Contact DNAlysis at: info@dnalysis.co.za
I promise to write an article about this workshop as one of my DietDoc Topics in the near future, so keep an eye on the DietDoc site.
Best regards
