From the article…
“It’s hard to create a diet that will work for everyone.”
…a growing body of research suggests that one of the reasons diets often fail is that the same foods can affect people in incredibly different ways–the same meal provides more calories for some and less for others, and can spike glucose levels at varying degrees depending on the individual.
Science seems to back up this idea. In a 2015 study in the journal Cell, researchers gave 800 people the exact same meal and then tested their glucose levels soon after. They found that despite the meals being identical, the glucose levels among the group varied drastically. This was true not only for foods high in sugar like ice cream but also in foods with lower glycemic indexes, like whole-grain bread. This study also found that a genetics-based personal meal plan helped to decrease post-meal glucose levels overall.
