No wonder it’s so hard to lose weight – our bodies are designed to keep weight on at all costs; it’s a matter of survival. It’s embedded in our DNA. Our diet has changed dramatically over the past ten thousand years, but our genetic blueprint has not – our bodies are not designed to process the types of food we are fed today. It’s like putting diesel fuel into a regular car – it just won’t work. And making matters worse is the fact that diets don’t work either – less than 6 percent of weight-loss attempts succeed. The average person who goes on a diet actually gains five pounds. But a medical revolution is under way, finally showing us precisely how the powerful forces that keep weight on can actually be reprogrammed to automatically burn fat and keep weight off for good.
