Choose the Right Carbs
Certain carbohydrates are healthy and nutritious for your GenoType. Learn which types you should emphasize.
- Hunter- Your Hunter sensitivities necessitate limiting your intake of gluten- and lectin-containing carbohydrates. Instead go for buckwheat, millet, quinoa, and basmati, brown, and wild rice.
- Gatherer- Your thrifty genes do well with low-glycemic carbohydrates. Artichoke flour, amaranth, barley, oat bran, and teff are great choices. Aim for half a cup of grains two to three times a day.
