Recent discoveries on nutritional genomics have shown that the food we eat everyday can maintain a “dialogue” with our cells and with our genetic heritage (DNA). Food modulates the response of cellular DNA in such a manner as to point the body towards a healthy condition, at a healthy body weight.
Using this concept as a starting point, the author follows the reader in a “journey” through the discovery of our own bodies. In a simple language that is easily understood, the author explains the mechanisms that help us live healthy lives, and provides nutritional advice to reach a state of well-being and a healthy body weight. The purpose of this book is to provide a new perspective to face our relationship with food, and it is therefore an innovation in terms of weight control and, as a consequence, of health as well.
