Genetics of metabolism are not static. You do have a uniqueness to the way you burn calories from food and metabolize carbs, fat, proteins. Weight loss for women over 40 can be suddenly tricky. Today we’re going to discuss the importance of genetics of metabolism so that, you don’t just have to look at what is, but that you can change the expression of your genetics and optimize your habits for your optimal health.  

If you’ve wondered, why can’t I…. or why does it work for her and not me… then close your other distractions and tune in. 

First, this

Before I introduce my guest on this episode, I want to bring up something integral in many of the guest experts I have on this podcast. 

Think for a moment about the physicians and care providers you’ve had over the course of your adult life. 

When you had a health concern or issue, and by the way I include weight loss resistance under health concerns. Though sometimes it’s treated with an “eat less, exercise more” advice, we know enough over the last decade I hope I’ve shed light on the fact, that you can 1) think you’re doing the right thing, 2) truly be doing the right thing and still have no one actually look at your genetics, your hormone levels, the integration of that together with your dietary or exercise needs. 

I believe there are different ways experts become experts. 1) they’ve been through what you’re going through 2) they’ve helped thousands of others with a method that consistently gets results or 3) and this is gold… they can say both.  

A young or experienced male physician, a young female physician (or exercise expert for that matter) who’s not yet had the life experience simply has a gap. It’s not impossible, but that combination of having been there together with the method is gold. 

And that.. is where we’re going today, the genetics of metabolism, yours.
