Why to Consider Doing a Genetic Diet Test

Recently, South Africa has seen an increase in obesity and the number of overweight people. 70% of South African women and 31% of South African men are overweight or obese. 13% of South African children are overweight.

Obesity is a very complex disease. Factors that can increase someone’s risk of being overweight include:

  • Physical inactivity
  • Poor diet
  • Metabolism
  • And one that is lesser known: genes

Having your genes tested for a diet that works best for you can really help to manage your overall health and your weight. Often, we can believe we’re eating the right way and exercising enough, but not able to see any results in our weight. This can be due to a genetic predisposition to being overweight, and by knowing this, it can help you to take the appropriate measures towards a custom diet that is perfectly suited to your genes.


What Do Genetic Diet Tests Test For?

There are many things that a genetic diet test can tell you about what changes you should implement into your diet. Some of these include:

  • It can tell you whether you have a type of lactose intolerance (even if the symptoms aren’t apparent to you)
  • How your food is stored and used as energy, as well as how your metabolism is performing – experts will then provide calculated information on how to optimise these bodily processes
  • If you have what is referred to as the “obesity gene”
  • It can reveal family history of weight-related issues, as well as health issues that may lead to an increase in weight

 The Benefits of a Gene Specific Diet After A Genetic Diet Test

A DNA diet is specifically engineered for the person according to their test results, and is the most accurate diet that one can get for their body. A genetic specific diet can help alleviate and potentially even avoid conditions like obesity, fatty liver disease, insulin resistance and more.
