Paleo or Atkins? Low-carb or low-fat? Determining which diet actually results in the most weight loss was the aim of two research studies released last week. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) study, which was a detailed analysis of the results of popular diets since 1966, the differences among all diets (such as Atkins, Weight Watchers, The Zone, etc.) are minimal. The average weight loss for all diets was approximately 16 pounds after 12 months.

In another study released last week, in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the effectiveness of a low-carbohydrate diet versus a low-fat diet revealed the low-carb approach to be marginally more effective, with an average 7 pounds more in weight loss after one year.

However, the participants in these studies were primarily obese adults looking to lose much more than 16 pounds per year – what are they doing wrong?

These new studies highlight more than ever the need for a personalized approach to weight loss. One thing that all low-carb, low-fat, and latest trend popular diets have in common is that they prescribe the same approach for weight loss to every person. As we’ve learned from the decade of research that went into developing ph360, a diet that works for one person will not necessarily work for someone else.

Here are 3 factors to consider when finding the personalized weight loss plan that will work for you:

1. Weight Loss From a 360-Degree Approach

Each person has specific biomarkers for weight loss that can be determined by a scientific calculation of gene expression. A personalized weight loss plan will include a personalized guide to food, fitness, environment, and lifestyle for optimal weight loss and overall wellness.

2. The Hormone Connection to Weight Loss

One key element to successful weight loss is balancing hormones, in both men and women. Hormones affect many aspects of our health, including weight. That’s why we’ve seen that people who have been struggling for a long time to lose weight are losing weight quickly and easily by following their ph360 plan. We’re regularly seeing weight loss of 10-20 pounds per week because once users balance their hormones, their weight naturally normalizes.

3. There is No One-Size-Fits-All

A personalized weight loss plan must take into account the extreme variance that we all have as individuals. For some, a low-carb diet can lead to a serotonin imbalance, or a fat-free diet can lead to a lack of nutrients needed for tissue repair. But this will be different for each individual. The truth is: there is no such thing as one diet that works for everyone.

Because we are all unique, with specific body chemistry, specific genes, and different strengths and weaknesses, a personalized plan is the only plan that will lead to real personalized results. offers an easy way to learn about the ideal weight loss plan for your body—based on what’s right for you, not someone else.
