One of the first books that describes a modern scientific approach to nutrition and come up with surprising results and easily testable personal responses to different food based on blood glucose monitoring.

Great premise, limited execution

I have high hopes for this book. The premise makes perfect sense to me and I am trying my hardest to follow the guidelines the authors set out for testing my blood sugar in conjunction with every meal I eat. I am seeing some interesting correlations, and for that reason, I am glad I read the book. But, there is very little practical advice in this book that is of use. Their associated tracking app is useless, so I cannot avail myself of their promised "scores" re:

Excelente libro sobre lo ultimo en nutricion

Al igual que el autor durante años he practicado deporte, empezando con la motivación de bajar de peso. Conforme paso el tiempo mi carga deportiva incrementó de pequeñas carreras a pie a completar triatlones competitivos (natacion, bici, carrera) y de la misma forma mi hambre cada ves era mayor y mi peso subiendo cada vez mas de manera inexplicable tuve que adentrarme en este mundo de la lectura sobre nutrición, probar varias dietas y finalmente encont

'The Personalized Diet' is a quick, well-organized, to-the-point read about some revolutionary findings in the world of human nutrition. These findings are backed up by prominent research in top-tier peer reviewed journals, and while the claims are radical and will require additional validation to be confirmed, they are as fascinating as they are provocative.

The authors lay out a clear explanation for how it might be possible that everyone has gotten diet wrong, and they explain how the average

'A generic, universal approach to nutrition simply cannot work. Food responses are highly personal and beyond any one measure. Diets that will maintain healthy blood glucose levels must therefore be personally tailored. The current nutritional paradigm, which searches for that one best diet, is inherently flawed. The best diet for all people does not exist. Our response to food is personal, so our dietary advice must also be personal.'

This book is amazing if you are looking for a more scientific approach to diate. I an so looking forward to trying the method. As i was reading i already had a lost of healthy foods in my diet that i think are problematic for my body.

Interesting relationship between blood sugar and health and weight

I thought they made a good argument and had science to back their claim that blood sugar spikes contribute to health problems and weight gain.

“The American Diabetes Association only specifies what fasting blood sugar numbers and blood sugar numbers should be 2 hours after meals (see here). You can find many different opinions about what numbers should be at other times, from 15 minutes after eating to 3 hours after eating. However, there is not an official consensus on this. We advise you not to worry about how your measures stack up against one number for each test. Instead, look at the whole arc of your blood sugar rise. If it goes up extremely high compared to other numbers, consider that a spike. If it goes up and stays up for a long time before coming back down to normal compared to other numbers, that may also be a sign that the meal or food is not a good one for you. 3.
