Nutrigenetics - the study of how food and DNA interact - is an exciting new field of research that forms the basis of the Zero Belly Diet. This program is the first to reduce belly fat dramatically, not through traditional calorie-restrictive weight-loss methods, but by actually “turning off” our fat genes and putting an end to the inflammation that causes them to switch back on.

Check out these 11 nutrients that have been proven to turn off your fat storage genes so you can keep flab off for good.
