knowledge to choose the right foods

that optimise their personal metabolism,

control weight and maintain good health.

As part of this next phase and to develop

the app, over a thousand US participants

are being recruited to take part from home

at www.joinzoe.com.

Predict comes after the 25-year-long

Twins UK Study, which examined health

and lifestyle in 14,000 twins, led by

Predict's lead researcher, Tim Spector,

Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at

King's College London and author of The

Diet Myth.

After findings showed that genetically

identical twins had very different food

responses, Spector concluded that genes

contributed 70% of an individual's risk for

obesity, on average. He then went on

to create ZOE along with technologists

Jonathan Wolf and George Hadjigeorgiou.

Spector says: "I believe that diversity,

both in the food we eat and the microbes

we feed is the key. The trillions of

microbes in our gut play an important role

in digesting food and producing a number

of chemicals vital for a strong immune

number of different types of microbe,

the healthier we can be. This microbial

diversity is achieved by eating a wide

array of real and fermented foods, not

excluding them."

Healthy eating messages

Weight loss, dieting and healthy eating

are here to stay, as well as all the varying

approaches to it. Whatever way people

choose to lose weight, it needs to be

sustainable and work for the individual;

the diet that's right for you could well be

right pretty much only for you.

Writing for The Conversation, Spector

explained, "Of course, there are healthy

eating messages that apply to everyone,

such as eating more fibre and increasing

diverse plant-based foods and cutting

down on ultra-processed products. But

the take-home message is that there is

no one right way to eat that works for

everyone, despite what government

guidelines and glamorous Instagram

gurus tell you."
