Help! I Can’t Stop Eating!


Anti Inflammatory Diet GeneticsWhy do we eat so much? The answer to this question may surprise you…. Because we can! Our genes have provided us with the tools we need to prepare for famine. These genes trigger an adaptive stress response and force the body to marshal its natural resources, and hold on to excess food.

However, changes in our lifestyle and our food supply have not only deprived the body of adaptive stress, they actually drive the needle in the other direction toward overactive inflammation and the overweight and obesity, poor health, and premature aging that go along with it.

Our Modern Diet & Lifestyle Works Against Our Adaptive Stress Response

To give an example, over 70 percent of our calories come from foods that would have been unrecognizable to our ancestors. Our food supply contains far fewer polyphenols, bioactive compounds that regulate the genes that keep us healthy. Polyphenols are a casualty of modern agricultural practices—much like fiber, another bioactive that’s all but stripped from processed foods.

Still other bioactive compounds, like the omega-3 and polyunsaturated fat concentrations in our meat and fish, are radically different than they would have been 100,000 years ago.

At the same time, we are getting way too many of the wrong types of calories (mostly from sugar and high-fructose corn syrup) and getting much less (and the wrong type of) exercise than our ancestors did.

The Solution

The Gene Smart Anti Inflammatory Diet & Exercise Program was created to trigger your body’s adaptive stress response to work with your genes to prevent overeating and inflammatory diseases that often come with it. Our program will help you reduce whole body inflammation and promote healthy active aging through five simple diet & exercise principles.

Step 1: Eat the Right Foods

Anti Inflammatory FoodsChoose foods that you enjoy which contain high levels of polyphenols, fiber and omega 3. It’s easy (and fun!) when you use the food lists found in our free Anti-Inflammation Diet Guide. Limit foods containing high amounts of omega 6.

Balancing your ratio of omega 6 and omega 3 fats is one of the most important factors for a successful anti-inflammation diet. To know if you are getting the right balance, you can check your Omega 6 to Omega 3 Ratio with our convenient Omega 3 Test.

Step 2: Boost Your Omegas & Polyphenols

To boost your Omegas, take Omega 3 & Borage Oil supplements. They work together to help the body maintain a healthy inflammatory balance.* To ensure you are getting enough polyphenols, take Pomegranate & Green Tea Extract. Save time, money and never miss a dose with our Gene Smart anti-inflammation diet supplement monthly delivery program.

Step 3: Exercise to Reduce Inflammation

Exercising to reduce inflammation is all about getting your heart rate up for 30 minutes, 5 days a week! Start at 50-75% of your maximum heart rate. Increase to 70% – 85% as you get in shape. Choose activities you enjoy…just get that heart pumping!
