12 Weeks to Skinny Genes Program
CUSTOM WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM BASED UPON YOUR GENETICS
A good diet isn’t always the right diet. Your genes reveal why you and another person can eat the same exact foods and experience differences with weight loss. Eat4yourGenes provides genetic testing and nutrition counseling services to help you find the diet and exercise activity that’s right for you to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle and lose weight.
Genetic testing helps you understand how your genes influence your body’s response to diet, nutrition and exercise. By analyzing your genetic code collected from a cheek swab specimen, along with answers to a health, nutrition, and lifestyle wellness web-based questionnaire, the genetic test results provide information to help you understand how your body processes carbohydrates, fat, protein, and micro-nutrients as well as the effectiveness of certain fitness activities.
By taking a genetic test, the results you learn can assist you in achieving the following health and wellness goals:
- Understand your metabolism and dietary traits to determine nutraceuticals and medical foods you may need
- Optimize the effects of physical activity and exercise
- Enhance the nutritional balance of your diet
Eat4yourGenes reviews your test results with you and provides guidance and recommendations on diet, nutrient, supplements, and exercise. Based upon the test results and comprehensive medical nutrition therapy assessment, an individually tailored weight loss program is created. Educational resources and tools relating to nutrition, lifestyle wellness, weight loss and genetics are provided during sessions and through a password protected website. Your custom weight loss program is monitored closely with follow-up sessions. All services can be conducted in-person, by phone, or via a HIPAA compliant telehealth platform.
Those who would benefit from Eat4yourGenes genetic testing and nutrition counseling services are those who struggle with issues related to weight management, metabolic syndrome or diabetes and fall into one of these categories:
