Whether a diet works for you

The likelihood that a diet will work might have more to do with your genetic makeup than the diet itself, according to a study on mice published in Genetics. The real-world (and human) takeaway? "Health effects of the diets were highly dependent on genetic background, demonstrating that individualized diet strategies improve health outcomes in mice," the researchers wrote. "If similar genetic-dependent diet responses exist in humans, then a personalized, or 'precision dietetics,' approach to dietary recommendations may yield better health outcomes than the traditional one-size-fits-all approach."

The bottom line? One diet doesn't work for everyone, and in fact, many experts say dieting doesn't work at all.
