Who is Michele Ciancimino?

Michele Ciancimino is a Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist/ Holistic Health Coach and a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She designs custom nutrition plans for busy individuals based on their unique DNA.

Michele made a career change from the legal profession where she was an attorney to the health and wellness field after her 2-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disease that mainly affects the lungs and the digestion. Terrified with this diagnosis, she began to ask herself, “What if I could make a difference in my daughter’s health by making changes to the way we were eating?” She researched alternatives to the long list of drugs that had been recommended. Her research included healthy foods, homeopathic medicine, herbs and other holistic approaches to health.

As a result, Michele changed the way she was taking care of her family and began to see changes. They all had more energy, less moody behavior and the best part-less frequent sickness! Her daughter is now 25 and doing well.

Saddened by the thought of the generation of unhealthy kids being raised who will turn into unhealthy adults if something doesn’t change, Michele devoted her life to bringing a holistic health approach to people struggling with chronic illness or frustrated by their appearance, lack of energy and unsuccessful attempts to reach and maintain their ideal weight and health. Her easy to follow “Click and Choose” programs, along with her personalized lifestyle coaching, allow each individual to transform their health in a way that feels effortless.

Michele’s passions are cooking healthy food for friends and family, sharing her love for essential oils, daily workouts and meditation.

Your Macronutrients

  • The macronutrient ratio is produced by applying genetics to established international safety ranges.
  • Macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins, fats) should be balanced to achieve optimal results.
  • By optimizing macronutrients you can:
    • Help moderate cholesterol levels
    • More efficiently utilize nutrition
    • Balance blood sugar levels
    • Boost energy and mood
    • Feel fuller longer
    • Control cravings
  • Macronutrients work together as a TEAM in each meal and snack throughout the day, impacting nutritional absorption, satiety, insulin production, fat storage, and other factors that are important to achieving optimal health and wellness.

Your DNA reveals the right amount of macronutrients for you

Nutrition Science of Carbohydrates

  • Carbohydrates are the body’s most readily available energy source and have the fastest impact on blood sugar levels.
  • In general, COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATES are a better choice:
    • They take longer for the body to break down.
    • They help normalized blood sugar levels.
    • Some good examples include:
      • Whole grain breads and brown rice
      • Fruits with skins (i.e. apples, pears)
      • Berries (also end to be higher in fiber)
      • Beans (i.e. kidney, white, black, and pinto)
  • Looking for a fun and healthy whole grain snack? CHOSE POPCORN!!

Genetics of Carbohydrates

  • ____ two major genes to evaluate the interaction of genetics and carbohydrate consumption:
    • Gene KCTD10 (SNP ID rs10850129)
      • KCTD10 is a member of a genetic network shown to impact weight, cholesterol, fat deposits and cardiac health.
    • Gene MMAB (SNP ID: rs22412011)
      • MMAB codes for an enzyme that helps break down certain proteins, fats and cholesterol.
    • Note: “SNP” = Single Nucleotide Polymorphism. For details on the genetic variations of SNPs see the Genetics 101 module.
  • Genetic variants of these specific genes impact cholesterol production in response to carbohydrate consumption.

Genotype Headline: GG CC GC / MMAB rs2241201

GG

Increase in bad (LDL) cholesterol in response to higher carb intake.

CC

    • No known impact of increased carbs on bad (LDL) cholesterol.

GC

    • No Known impact of increased carbs on bad (LDL) cholesterol.

Genotype Headline: GG CC GC / KCTD10 rs10850129

GG

    • Decrease in good cholesterol in response to higher carb intake.

CC

    • No known benefit to increased carb intake.

GC

    • No known benefit to increased carb intake.

Nutrition Science of Fats

  • ___ uses six genes to evaluate the interaction of genetics, and fat consumption. Fats are a powerful source of energy for the body:
    • They are the least costly macro nutrient to process.
    • They have the largest potential to store energy.
    • They are important for maintaining cell membranes.
    • They help absorb fat soluble vitamins and minerals (can be moved into the bloodstream more easily during digestion).
  • Certain fats can reduce free radicals in the body, while other fats may increase free radicals:
    • Some saturated fats have the ability to deactivate free radicals, preventing them from causing damage.
    • Certain polyunsaturated fats (i.e. Omega-6) are susceptible to forming free radicals during cooking or after ingestion.

Genetics of Fats

  • The six different genes AGS uses evaluate the interaction of genetics and fat consumption are:
  • Gene FTO (SNP ID: rs9939609): Member of a network shown to impact weight, cholesterol, fat deposits, and cardiac health.
  • Gene APOA2 CSNP ID. rs5082): Codes for an enzyme that helps break down certain proteins, fats, and cholesterol.
  • Gene ADIPOQ fSNP ID: rs17300539): Shown to control fat metabolism and insulin control.
  • Gene FADS1. {SNP ID: rs174547): Directly involved in the metabolism of polyunsaturated fatty acids.
  • Gene PPARG (S1 NP ID: rs1801282): Shown to stimulate lipid uptake and the production of fat cells (adipogenesis).
  • Gene LIPC (SNP ID: rs1800588): Enzyme associated with the liver that helps break down the movement of fat molecules.

MUFAs & PUFAs

  • Unsaturated fats are “kinked” (possessing double bonds). This is why they are usually liquid at room temperature.
  • These healthy fats help cell membranes (important barriers) retain fluidity and do not easily contribute to lipid plaque build-up.
  • There are two major types of unsaturated fats:
    • Monounsaturated Fatty Acids (MUFAs):
      • MUFAs posses a single double bond.
      • They protect against arterial plaque build-up and are more stable than polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs).
    • Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFAs):
      • PUFAs posses multiple double bonds.
      • They protect against arterial plaque build-up, but are also subject to oxidation and subsequent production of free radicals.

Genetics and Fat Consumption

Genotype headline: AA AT TT / FTO rs9939609

AA

    • Reduced ability to feel full.

AT

    • Partially reduced ability to feel full.

TT

    • Normal feeling of fullness.

    • Increased ability to manage weight by increasing PUFAs.

GG

    • No known benefit to added PUFAs in the diet.

Genotype headline: AA GA GG / FADS1 rs17547

AA

    • No known impact of PUFAs on cholesterol.

GA

    • Lower levels of bad (LDL) cholesterol, especially in response to PUFAs.

GG

    • Lower levels of bad (LDL) cholesterol, especially in response to PUFAs.

Genotype headline: CC CT TT / APOA2 rs5082

CC

    • Demonstrated increase in weight gain from saturated fats.

CT

    • No known impact of saturated fats on weight gain.

TT

    • No known impact of saturated fats on weight gain.

Micronutrients

Micronutrients= Vitamins and Minerals

  • Micronutrients are chemical elements required in small quantities for healthy living.
  • Micronutrients include:
    • Vitamins: organic compounds essential for life (most cannot be synthesized by the body}.
    • Minerals: elements that originate from the Earth’s soil also essential for life.
  • The human body can only synthesize some vitamins (i.e. vitamin D with sunlight exposure}, but not all!. Additional nutrients mu1 st come from the foods we c.onsu·me or through vita ·min supplementation,

Micronutrient Predispositions

What Can Genetics Tell Us About Micronutrients?

  • Genetics alone can reveal predispositions, not outright deficiencies. In order to determine full deficiencies, blood work or thorough physical examination by a physician is required.
  • People with genetic predispositions have a greater likelihood of developing micronutrient deficiencies if they do not achieve proper nutrition through the foods they consume.
  • Many predispositions can be countered through proper diet, but some individuals may require, or even prefer, supplementation:
    • Very busy or active individuals.
    • Those who travel frequently.
    • Those who want to close nutritional gaps.

Beverage Metabolism

Lactose: Adult-Onset Intolerance

  • The symptoms of “lactose intolerance” occur because the body does not break down or fully digest sugar (lactose) from dairy products.
  • This discomfort takes place when consumed dairy makes its way to the colon and interacts with bacteria, eventually causing bloating, discomfort, and/or abdominal pain.
  • Most adults experience some lactose intolerance, but individuals with variations in the MCM6 gene develop it more severely and earlier in life.
  • Factors such as gut microbiome can also directly affect an individual’s response to lactose.
  • Good news! Being ”lactose intolerance” doesn’t mean abandoning dairy altogether:
    • Fresh dairy in smaller amounts may be digestible and not cause symptoms.
    • Aged, non-liquidy cheeses often have low lactose and may be tolerable.

The Value of Exercise for Health

  • Exercise is very important, but DIET is the cornerstone!
  • Many people think exercise is the path to weight loss, but diet is the major defining factor for effective and long­-lasting weight management
  • Regular exercise can help maintain weight, but exercise has numerous other health benefits (Mayo Cli nic*):
    • Exercise boosts “good” HDL cholesterol.
    • Exercise affects mood and stress management.
    • Exercise improves cardiovascular health.
    • Exercise cultivates oxygen and nutrient circulation.
    • Exercise boosts energy.
    • Exercise improves sleep (not too close to bed time).
    • Exercise improves libido…and so much more!

What Does My Exercise Ratio Mean?

  • Your ratio represents three key concepts:
    1. Your genetic predisposition for activity.
      • For example, 60% “endurance” means endurance activity may be easier, but does not mean you cannot, or should not, pursue such activities if you enjoy them.
    2. Build workouts tailored to your predispositions.
      • Easier start to regular exercises
      • Make workout out regularly more enjoyable
      • Personalize workout routines
    3. Make necessary modifications to enhance output and improve performance margins.

The “Exercise Ratio” also reflects potential benefits associated with cholesterol & blood pressure

Stress Can Impact People Differently

  • Genetic differences that impact brain chemistry can also alter how different individuals respond to a variety of stress-induced situations.
  • There are two major types of stress:
    • Short-Term Stress:
      • The body’s immediate reaction to a new challenge or problem.
    • Long-Term Stress:
      • Stress that persists over time becomes long-term stress, which can carry its own unique consequences.
  • Stress also interacts with blood pressure. Individuals with a predisposition to hypertension are encouraged to be especially aware of this genetic predisposition.

Cholesterol and Blood Pressure

Cholesterol and Blood Pressure are both key factors in cardiovascular and physical health.

Genetic differences can affect these pivotal health and wellness traits in several different ways:

  1. The interaction between carbohydrates and cholesterol levels.
  2. The effects of exercise on blood pressure.
  3. The response to dietary sodium.

How Genetics Impact Cholesterol

Cholesterol, a fat-like substance found in all cells, is a lipid molecule essential for bodily function and digestion:

  • Plays a key role in building and maintaining cell membrane structure and fluidity.
  • Serves as a precursor for many molecules, including steroid hormones and vitamin D.

There are two main types of cholesterol:

  • LDL cholesterol: This is the “bad” cholesterol that contributes to fatty buildup in arteries.
  • HDL Cholesterol: This is the “good” cholesterol that helps carry LDL back to the liver for recycling.

Cholesterol becomes a problem when it begins to build up in the arteries, making them prone to blockage.
