Weight Loss In 2016: The ‘DNA Diet,’ Weight Watchers ‘SmartPoints,’ And ‘Stop …

With 2015 turning into 2016, it’s expected that weight loss would be a pressing subject on many minds in the New Year. Indeed, losing weight is at the top of many New Year’s resolutions, reports the Poughkeepsie Journal, with the publication noting how often health clubs experience a surge in visitors every January.

As reported in a Marist Poll, one of the top wishes or resolutions made for 2016 involve losing weight. About 12 percent of folks who make New Year’s resolutions report that their resolution involves losing weight. Although it’s believed that most of the people visiting health clubs in January will give up on exercising altogether, it’s a myth that everyone will give up. Some of those who make their resolutions will stick with it and achieve their weight loss goals.


A portion of those folks might turn to the trusty and tried Weight Watchers to lose weight. Weight Watchers has been deemed one of the most effective — if not the most effective — lifestyle eating plans. However, Weight Watchers’ new “SmartPoints,” as reported by the Fresno Bee, isn’t sitting well with some Weight Watchers fans who find the SmartPoints more restrictive.

Weight Watchers and their “Beyond the Scale” program involves SmartPoints that helps eaters reduce sugar and saturated fats from their eating plans. Not all Weight Watchers followers are happy that they can no longer jump on the treadmill and exercise more if they want to indulge in more potato chips later. Others are finding ways to work with the new SmartPoints regimen and sharing various recipes on Twitter.

Other folks can look forward to the “DNA diet,” as reported by the New York Post, but not until 2020. The DNA diet is a very specific type of diet that uses genetics and other data in order to help people lose weight. Those folks who’ve tried a variety of diets and find that they still can’t lose weight on plans that might have helped others could indeed find the specificity of the DNA diet helping them lose weight at last.

By examining the genetic makeup of an individual, scientists can connect DNA to weight loss or weight gain, and figure out why certain folks seem to have more trouble than others at taking off weight. As a result, the DNA diet could provide an individual eating plan and weight loss workout plan for a person based on their behavioral indications and genetics that proves successful.

Whereas the DNA diet has a title that has brought intrigue and interest, nutritional expert Lola Berry has discovered the name of her new weight loss program has brought outrage. As reported by the Daily Mail, once Berry announced that her new weight loss program would be called, “Stop Being A Fat B****,” Lola was met with plenty of backlash from those who found the title degrading and hurtful.

On Facebook, Lola Berry found herself apologizing and asking her Facebook followers what the name of her weight loss program should be instead.

“I’m really sorry the name of the eating plan has upset lots of people, that’s not my intention at all. The whole point of it was to evoke a change in self talk, but I can see how it’s too strong and I’m sorry for that. The content is all about changing your mindset to achieve your health goals. So, I would love you guys to name it. What would you like it to be called?”

One of the most-liked comments said Lola should name her program “stop calling yourself a fat b****.” Other fans of Berry have commented on Facebook that she should name her eating plan whatever title she’d like to name it.
