A Low-Carb Diet
May be best for your DNA if you have:
- Weight around your midsection
- High blood pressure
- High triglycerides
If your waist is greater than 35 inches, you're at risk for heart disease, gall bladder disease and diabetes. You may be insulin resistant, which means you have difficulty processing sugar. By losing 10% of your body weight, you can also lower your blood pressure. Choose lean healthy proteins and limit the amount of carbs, especially refined white foods like starchy potatoes and bread.
