The Secret Recipe to Weight Loss

recipe for weight loss

Gene Smart is a healthy lifestyle approach to eating, nutrition and exercise that has a wonderful side-effect – WEIGHT LOSS!  In fact, those in our Gene Smart study lost 1 ½-2 pounds per week.  These are averages of course, but they’re pretty amazing.  They reflect a pace of weight loss that is healthy and safe.

Our study participants reported that sticking with Gene Smart was easy.  The majority reported no confusion and no problems with compliance.  They enjoyed their meals, and they felt full and satisfied after eating.  And, they kept the weight off!  A full 74% maintained their weight loss or continued to lose weight a full 10 weeks after we concluded the study.

So, what is our secret recipe to losing weight and keeping it off?  It’s the same recipe as our healthy anti-inflammatory lifestyle:

Ingredients:

  • Polyphenols
  • The right omega fats
  • Fiber
  • Calories
  • A little help from supplements
  • A positive attitude!

Instructions:

1. Polyphenols: Add dark skinned fruits and vegetables to your diet for a healthy dose of polyphenols. Sources of polyphenols include berries, spinach, sweet potatoes, apples…even almonds & chickpeas (we love hummus!). On occasion, red wine and dark chocolate can be a tasty source of polyphenols too. What else is on the list? Click here for a full High Polyphenols Foods List.

 

2. The Right Omega Fats: Increase your omega-3 intake and limit high omega-6 foods, which can promote inflammation.

3. Fiber: This may be the most important step, so don’t miss it! In the Gene Smart Study, participants stated that the #1 most important key to losing weight was increasing their fiber intake. Why? The answer is simple. Fiber helps to keep you feeling fuller for longer, making you less likely to overeat and more likely to stick to your diet. Check out our Rich Fiber Foods List to get started!

 

4. Calories: Calories are essential to human life. The key is to find out just how many calories we need to ensure that we don’t overeat or under-eat (which can actually cause weight gain by slowing your metabolism.) How many calories do you need? Check out our handy calorie calculator to find out!

 

5. A little help from supplements: We recommend getting your nutrients through foods whenever possible.  However, there are three nutrients important to your anti-inflammatory diet that can be difficult or impractical to get in sufficient doses each day through foods alone. You should get at least 2000 mg of borage oil, a high quality polyphenol supplement, and 1000 mg of omega-3 fatty acids.

 

6. A positive attitude: YOU CAN DO IT! By making the decision to improve your health and live a more abundant life, you’ve already taken the first step! Be your #1 cheerleader, and remind yourself that you are a strong person and you can do this… because you are and you can! If you happen to “cheat” on your diet, don’t beat yourself up over it. Simply move forward and get back on track!
