Study emphasizes the need for personalized dietary plans, as not even twins show the same responses

Researchers have found that many widely accepted dietary guidelines are not suitable for everyone, with even twins responding differently to the same foods, despite having nearly identical DNA. This discovery complicates health advice and emphasizes the need for individualized dieting plans.

The new study is the largest scientific nutrition study of its kind and was carried out by researchers from King’s College London, Massachusetts General Hospital, and ZOE, a nutritional science company that is developing personalized nutrition tests.

The study, called PREDICT, included approximately 1,100 adult volunteers from the US and UK, including 240 pairs of twins. For two weeks, every participant was asked to eat certain meals and keep track of every single item of food and drink they consumed.
