Power with every bite

I just read a really interesting book by Dr. Mark Hyman, a reference in the field of Functional Medicine.

Something that really spoke to me in his book was this passage:

“Food is information and it controls your gene expression, hormones and metabolism. The source of the calories…makes a gigantic difference in how your genes, hormones, enzymes, and metabolism respond.”

So many doctors, and so many people, think genes are everything. That if you didn’t luck out in the gene lottery, you can’t do anything about developing certain ‘family’ diseases.

How do you think people with this thought treat their bodies?

More and more studies are concluding that we CAN actually change the expression of our genes through lifestyle choices, particularly food.

Isn’t ‘I have the power to control the expression of my genes with every bite’ a more empowering thought?
