Personalized wellness is the new wave of eating

Until recently, dieting experts have extolled the benefits of wide-ranging diets. We hear about cutting out parts of our diets which can lead to drastic and often difficult-to-follow meal plans.

With that in mind, personalized wellness is prominently positioned as one of the biggest trends in food this year according to the Global Wellness Summit.

Adding to the challenge of taking on eating changes is the constant noise about what is healthy and what isn’t. These trendy diets can create confusion and draws attention away from what dieters are really trying to accomplish. People generally want to eat what is healthy.

At the 2018 GWS; Neil Grimmer, founder of Silicon Valley-based Habit, a pioneering personalized nutrition company, told the audience: “Since the dawn of time, we’ve been asking what foods are right for us. We’ve done high carb/low carb, high fat/low fat…one day eggs are good, the next they are bad.” Despite all the diets out there, Grimmer says, “the reality is that there’s one prevailing question: ‘what foods are right for me?’”

Sometimes the most revolutionary ideas are the simplest. As such, enter the world of personalized dieting. Simply put, find out what works for your body the best and eat those things.

According to the GWS keynote speaker David Bosshart, “We are confused about what we eat, where we eat, and when to eat it. We define ourselves by what we’re eating, but, even more so, by what we don’t eat. Food may have moved to the center of our lives, but we are overwhelmed by our choices.”

Bosshart brings up an interesting point. With the rapidly-changing landscape of nutrition and wellness, it’s easy to focus energy into what not to do but miss the mark with what you should be eating.

Catering a diet specifically to your body type can be a challenge but following these steps and learning what the best route would; at the very least, provide a roadmap and actionable steps to achieve a better self.

Habit performed a 42-week study and found that with when diets accounted for DNA and genotypes, women lost an average of eight pounds and men lost an average of 12.
