New research: diet is absolutely personal

Dr. Elinav and E.Segal from Weizmann Institute of Scinece are hoping to build a new kind of diet-counseling business from findings they published recently in the journal Cell. Their study found a startling variation in the glucose responses of 800 subjects fed the same foods. Some participants had sharp increases in blood sugar when they ate ice cream and chocolate, while others showed only a flat or moderate response.With the breakthrough algorithm the scientists were able to prescribe personalized diets to a group of 100 prediabetic patients that significantly moderated their blood sugar following meals and boosted levels of good bacteria in their guts.

The algorithm is similar to what Amazon uses to tell you which books you want to read
