Here are examples of 3 DNA-based diets -- low-fat , low-carb and balanced -- and  how to determine which may be best for your genetic makeup.

A Low-Fat Diet

May be best for your DNA if you have:

  • Heart disease in your family
  • Low energy levels
  • High LDL cholesterol

A low-fat diet can provide weight loss and protect you from diseases you're predisposed to. Avoid fatty foods, refined sugars and carbohydrates; they can make you feel lethargic. For best energy, eat low-fat carbs, including whole grains like quinoa, or legumes, like black beans. Choose monounsaturated fats like olive oil and avocado to improve your HDL cholesterol.
