Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo interviews Donna Gates
In this show you'll learn:
- The impact of your genes on your gut flora
- Why the one-size-fits-all diet doesn't work, and how to customize yours based on your genetics
- What to do if your vitamin D receptors are sub-optimal due to your genetics
- The alphabet soup of genes that impact digestion and food effects – NERF-2, FUT, VDR, NAT, TAS1r3, MTHFR, and much more
- Genes that effect whether you do well or poorly with saturated fats, and when it's most important to eat a plant-based diet based on genetics
Listen to the Replay:
When it comes to choosing what to eat, the literature is fraught with confusing research, statistics, and recommendations. Proponents of a variety of diet “religions” purport to have the perfect diet for all of human kind. Studies contradict themselves, and hot-under-the-collar debates separate diet factions. Confusion and overwhelm abounds, and, for many, it results in just giving up and eating what tastes good.
But what if instead of following a particular diet religion, you could, based on factors in your genetics, make smart food choices based on what's best for your unique biochemistry?
Join Dr. Ritamarie and Donna Gates, of The Body Ecology Diet, as they help you understand about genetics with relationship to food choices. This is what a brand new science called nutrigenomics is all about.
Donna Gates, M.Ed., ABAAHP, is the international best-selling author of The Body Ecology Diet: Recovering Your Health and Rebuilding Your Immunity, The Body Ecology Guide to Growing Younger: Anti-Aging Wisdom for Every Generation, and Stevia: Cooking with Nature’s Calorie-Free Sweetener. An Advanced Fellow with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, she is on a mission to change the way the world eats. The Body Ecology Diet was the first of its kind—sugar-free, gluten-free, casein-free, and probiotic rich. In 1994, Donna was among those that introduced the natural sweetener stevia to the U.S., began teaching about fermented foods, and coined the phrase “inner ecosystem” to describe the network of microbes that maintains our basic physiological processes—from digestion to immunity. Over the past 25 years, Donna has become one of the most respected authorities in the field of digestive health, diet, and nutrition. A recognized radio host of The Body Ecology Hour with Donna Gates on Hay House radio, Donna regularly contributes to The Huffington Post and The Daily Love, and lectures at the “I Can Do It!” Conference, The Longevity Now Conference, and Women’s Wellness Conference.
