Diane Kress presents the NIH study that shows “scientific proof” that peoples’ metabolic makeup impacts weight loss. (So, “Calories in/Calories out” is NOT the solution????)


Attention National Institutes of Health (NIH):

Diane Kress spoon- feeds the NIH the reason and solution for their study findings: “Some people lose weight easier than others because of metabolic differences.”

“Please forward to all your contacts.  We need to take action now and save our health and the weight/health/future of our children and grandchildren” Diane Kress

The NIH article can be found here:  http://www.stonehearthnewsletters.com/some-people-lose-weight-easier-than-others-because-of-metabolism-differences-scientific-proof/obesity/#sthash.Fpiux1KP.tgbuxACB.dpbs


Researchers at NIH found scientific proof “supporting the commonly held belief that people with certain physiologies lose less weight than others when limiting calories.”

For the record:

I have repeatedly contacted the NIH, AMA, AND, Harvard Nutrition Committee,   and The White House over the past twelve years with my research findings based on long term weight/fat loss and improved health markers for 6000 patients at my private practice in medical nutrition therapy at The Nutrition Center of Morristown, NJ.

My conclusion: “Statistics show that over 65% of the US adult population has great difficulty losing weight and keeping it off.”  The medical community’s advise has always been:  To lose weight you must. eat fewer calories and get more physical activity.  The result?  We are now at epidemic levels of obesity, diabetes, and weight related medical conditions.

The cause of the majority of overweight/obesity has always been a  genetically- mediated, environmental- stress driven metabolism”.   And not everyone has the genes for this metabolism.  But….only 35% of people succeed with weight/fat loss on low calorie/less food diets.  Over 65% of people require a totally different way of eating.

It has taken over 12 years for one of the institutions I repeatedly contacted to do a very small study (12 people) on this research and proof.  And they are labeling this 12 person study:  Scientific Proof.

I gave these institutions the scientific proof of existence and the treatment method 12 years ago.  And I contacted these groups many times without so much as a response.

What NIH’s micro-research study calls a “thrifty metabolism” is actually a type of metabolism I labeled Metabolism B…or Met B. If you are overweight or obese, there is over a 65% chance that you have Met B.

Quote from NIH’s  “study” : “While behavioral factors such as adherence to diet affect weight loss to an extent, our study suggests we should consider a larger picture that includes individual physiology – and that weight loss is one situation where being thrifty doesn’t pay.” (Readers: substitute the words “having undiagnosed Met B” for the vague term “thrifty” in NIH’s quote)

Also from NIH: “What we’ve learned from this study may one day enable a more personalized approach to help people who are obese achieve a healthy weight,” said Director Griffin P. Rodgers, M.D. “This study represents the latest advance in NIDDK’s ongoing efforts to increase understanding of obesity.”



NIH: Let me help speed your efforts to increase your understanding of obesity:

The diagnosis and treatment already exists, but the NIH, AMA, AND, and The White House has consciously chosen to ignore it. At this rate, the NIH will pronounce a solution to the devastating epidemic of obesity and diabetes  another 12 years from now.  In that time period, millions will suffer from medical conditions related to overweight/obesity.

In this short article, the reader can learn everything needed to diagnose Metabolism B and the simple lifestyle treatment method.  (This solution requires NO medication and in most cases, decreases or eliminates need for weight-related medicine for hypertension, elevated glucose, A1C, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and Vitamin D deficiency. The solution also decreases the risk of cancer: breast, colon, skin, prostate, pancreas, prostate, ovaries, uterus, testicles and Alzheimer’s disease/dementia.


Stressors that increase tripping the gene for Met B:

 Over 65% of the population is born with the genetic predisposition to metabolic syndrome or Metabolism B.  Turning on the gene for Met B follows a  progressive path.  The older you become and the more environmental stressors you experience during your life, the increased risk of turning on the gene for Metabolism B and acquiring health conditions and complications

The Stressors.

Increasing Age

Hormonal changes (puberty, pregnancy, lactation, peri- menopause, menopause, thyroid disease)

Inactivity or sedentary lifestyle

Excessive carbohydrate intake (“good” and “bad carbs” count)

Emotional Stress




Certain medications (OCA’s, beta blockers, prednisone, etc)


If a person has the gene for what I call Metabolism B, the accumulation of these stressors makes the likelihood of the onset and progression of Met B from metabolic syndrome to pre diabetes to type 2 diabetes.  If a person can minimize these stressors, the likelihood of becoming obese, overweight, and diabetic decreases.

You cannot erase a gene, but you can help impact its progression.  In this case, it’s all in the lifestyle of the person.


How do you know  if you have Met B?

One way is to have FASTING lab work to identify (through your objective labs) if you have Met B.  These labs are typically drawn during a routine physical exam and should be checked on  an annual basis*:

Fasting lab work that includes:



Total Cholesterol

LDL Cholesterol

HDL Cholesterol


Vitamin D

You can ask your physician for the following routine labs to gain all the information you need for your diagnosis:

Metabolic panel

Lipid profile

Vitamin D level

*If you take medication for controlling any of these labs, realize that your numbers are artificially “treated” with medication.  So, if you take medication for glucose or A1C, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, or Vitamin D….you can automatically put a check-mark for Met B.

When your labs return, make sure to get your own copy.  Look for the listed labs on your results, and check your labs against the following Met B target zones as these values indicate you do have Met B:

These are the labs and lab ranges clearly showing Metabolism B

Glucose:  Under 70 or over 85 equals Met B

A1C (hemoglobin A1C):  Under 5.3 or over 5.6 equals Met B

Total cholesterol: Over 199 can equal Met B

LDL cholesterol: Over 99 equals Met B

HDL cholesterol:  Under 45 equals Met B

Triglycerides: Over 99 equals Met B

Vitamin D: Under 40 equals Met B

Symptoms of uncontrolled Met B

If you don’t have lab work or your lab work clearly indicates uncontrolled Met B, check to see if you have the following Met B symptoms:

  1. Chronic fatigue: Waking up tired, getting woozy on your commute to work, after lunch, late afternoon, and after dinner.
  2. Over-loving and a strong preference for carbohydrate foods: Bagels, pizza, burritos, French Fries, ice cream, chips, pretzels, snack crackers, pasta, rice, cookies, candy, desserts, fruit, potatoes, corn, etc.
  3. Poor short term memory, difficulty focusing and remembering, racing thoughts and/or brain fog.
  4. Short fuse, bad temper, irritability, anxiety, panic attacks
  5. Mild depression, lack of motivation, lack of drive
  6. Sleep issues: Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Mind races when you get up during the night.
  7. Very easy and quick weight gain.
  8. Increasing belly fat, back fat, love handles, muffin top
  9. Increasing aches and pains. Feel older than your age.  Joint pain and stiffness.  Headaches.
  10. Alcohol has a greater impact.
  11. Caffeine has less of an impact. You can drink a double espresso and go to sleep soon afterward.
  12. Decreased libido, erectile dysfunction (ED), yeast infections, lack of desire to initiate sex.
  13. Blurry vision that comes and goes, night driving problems, light sensitivity, teary eyes/dry eyes.


Based on your fasting lab work and your symptoms, it is easy to diagnosis Metabolism B.  Over 65% of the adult population has uncontrolled Met B and is NOT being treated appropriately.  As a result, 65% of the adult population is getting heavier, sicker, and requiring more prescription medications with higher doses.  Out of every 10 people, 6.5 will develop pre diabetes or type 2 diabetes in their lifetime and will become overweight or obese.

If uncontrolled Met B is not treated with the correct lifestyle, all efforts for weight loss and to get and stay healthy are in vain.

In understandable language, an explanation of Met B

After years of research in medical nutrition therapy for those who were overweight or obese and slowly –but- surely developed the same host of medical conditions including: high cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, glucose, A1C and low Vitamin D and HDL cholesterol as well as developing the same medical host of medical conditions including: inability to lose weight and keep it off, hypertension, high cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, hypoglycemia, pre diabetes, gestational diabetes, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, infertility, PCOS, GERD, sleep apnea, dementia/Alzheimer’s disease, NAFLD (non alcohol fatty liver disease), pancreatitis and more… I realized there had to be a common denominator with the majority of the overweight/obese population.

Like the NIH study finally concludes: Not every body is created the same in terms of underlying metabolism.  Some bodies can have success on a low calorie diet with increased activity (less than 35% of the population).  These people have normal insulin release all of their lives.  I call this type of physiology; Metabolism A.

But, the overwhelming majority of the population develops a progressive INSULIN IMBALANCE.  The majority of overweight people don’t have success with long term weight and fat loss when they decrease calories and try to eat less…But they DO have long term success when they normalize their insulin!

Insulin is a fat gain hormone.  Met B’s begin to overproduce the fat gain hormone and begin to build excess fat on their body (belly fat), in their blood (LDL cholesterol and triglycerides), between their vital organs, and in their liver (NAFLD).  Met B’s are FATTY because of  excess INSULIN PRODUCTION.

They must normalize insulin to decrease fat on the body…all areas of the body: belly fat, back fat, scale weight and inches lost, improved cholesterol, triglcyerides, blood pressure, blood sugar, Vitamin D and much more.

The “calories in/calories out” diet we’ve been told to follow  to lose weight was never  based on normalizing insulin; it’s only based on reducing calorie intake and increasing activity.  If a diet does not normalize insulin, the DIET fails for over 65% of the population.



For those with uncontrolled Met B (excess insulin production and fat gain)  The solution is clearly detailed in The Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress, RD CDE


The Conclusion

I sent all the data from my research on over 6000 face to face patients to the National Institute of Health beginning 12 years ago.  This data was also sent to the AMA, AND, Harvard’s Nutrition Committee, and The White House.  In addition, I sent them the program I developed to solve this “root of obesity” problem…I sent them boxes of my books.

The Metabolism Miracle program works, EVERY TIME.  It is a lifetime lifestyle.  There are no tricks, smoke and mirrors or gimmicks.  It is the real deal.  Everyone in the US (and around the world) who is struggling with weight and weight related health issues, medical conditions, and illnesses needs to be tested for Met B.  They can use the lab work approach to diagnosis or the physical symptoms diagnosis or both.

Forget about the NIH, AMA, AND, Harvard Nutrition Committee, or The White House finding the reason and then finally give you the solutionfor the obesity/diabetes epidemics.  They are fully aware of the cause and the solution.  Our being overweight and manifesting a myriad of medical conditions based on our weight fills the coffers of the agencies themselves.  If their focus is on money (the agency or institution’s very funding)…they have zero motivation to promote a lifestyle plan that works.

You can find the books at the sites listed below.  They are all available in paperback and as e-books. If you want to bulk purchase these books (at half the cost) for your organization, hospital, house of worship, group, or institution, contact dietquestions@ymail.com.  President Obama…how about purchasing this program for US schools?  We CAN influence the youth of our country by sharing with them a path to health and wellness…
