Dieting and Microbiome Research – Mayo Clinic Results = Food a Better Way to Eat for Individual Health

Being food conscious can be a good thing, but means different things to different people. As recent research begins to reveal that individuals process foods differently, there is hope for lowering blood sugar without sacrificing every food in certain categories.

An Article from New Science tells about customizing diets for individuals based on how foods are digested and the changes in blood sugar.

A study published Feb. 8,  2019 in the Journal of the American Medical Association bolsters a still-emerging area in diet science that suggests the best way to manage nutritional health is to build personalized diets.” ~ Retrieved June 17, 2020 New Science; Chase Purdy

Instead of approaching a ‘diet” with one size fits all plan, individualized plans for diet based on a person’s gut biome can make a difference in a persons health. This study was designed to look at diabetes and blood sugar. “Personalized” plans can make a difference in a diet to reduce blood sugar.

“It’s a dieting method that treats each human body less as a template, and more as a highly unique ecosystem. Ultimately, it suggests there is no one-size-fits-all diet.” ~ Retrieved June 17, 2020 New Science; Chase Purdy

Since diabetes is one of the biggest health problems in the United States, this article is relevant at this time. The article mentions that the Nestle company, the largest international food conglomerate in the world, is testing “personalized” dieting in Japan with the idea of seeing food as pharma”. This vision of food echos in a round-about-way the saying, “You are what you eat.”
