DNA Diet Test

We are all aware that each of our bodies is different. While some body types thrive on carbohydrates, others crash, and where someone will lose loads of weight on a specific diet, someone else may see no results at all. So how do you find the right fit for you that actually works for your blood type, your body type, and your metabolism? You take a test that examines your DNA and what it needs for you to live your best life!

By examining individual genes to determine how they affect the system holistically, we can help to see if there are any genetic factors hindering you from reaching your weight loss goals. A DNA diet test can help you discover the best diet for your specific genomes; a custom diet designed around your needs could be just what you need to get the body you want.

DNA tests for your diet will help experts, and you, discover which will be the most suitable and effective diet for your needs based on your individual DNA and genetic structure.

GeneDiet, can also assist in the psychological aspects of weight loss, by helping clients to better understand and manage their appetite and satiety, craving, eating habits etc.  Knowing how your body stores and breaks down fats can also help to put your weight loss goal into perspective.

How Do My Genes Affect My Diet?
