What is a DNA Diet and how does it work? Simply put, your personal genes hold the secret to you fitting better in your jeans! Scientists have found that in a DNA Diet, where you eat certain foods based on your genes, you could lose a third more weight than calorie counting!

Dr. Nicola Pirastu and her team, from the University of Trieste in Italy, monitored obese patients over a two year period and found that those who followed the DNA Diet lost 33 percent more weight than those on standard diets.

Scientists behind the DNA Diet method claim our individual genetic make-up means that our bodies process fats and carbohydrates differently, so some of us put on more weight than others even when we eat the same foods!
