Tailoring health and fitness plans to a person's DNA became big business last year and I'm sure DNA profiling is a luxury health trend set to continue, as more and more people begin to recognise that there's no single diet plan or 'magic bullet' to suit everyone. It seems like every day there's a new book on the supermarket shelves promising that if we just cut out a particular food group or ingredient, we will solve all of our health problems.
You've probably tried some of these things yourself - low carb, no carb, low fat, gluten free, dairy free, low sugar, etc. etc. Trouble is, without seeking expert advice first, a lot of this is just guess work. We're haphazardly cutting things out of our diet without really knowing if we, as individuals, have an intolerance or allergy, in the hope that it will completely turn our health around in the same way it has for some woman on the internet.
