DNA Nutrition Testing
If you’ve been struggling with different yo yo diets and maintaining weight loss, the answer may be in your genes
Genetic traits influence everything from the body’s ability to metabolize certain foods to the way it responds to exercise. And because everyone’s body is different, there’s a good chance the latest one-size-fits-all might not be the best fit for you.
So how can you win the war on fat? You’ve got to listen to your body. At NJdiet.com, we rely on DNA Testing to assess more than 50 different genetic factors known to assess nutrition and fitness.
The Science of Nutrigenomics
For generations, conventional wisdom has held that eating less and exercising more will lead to weight loss success. But you already know it’s not that simple. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this website.
The fact is, around 95% of those who do manage to lose weight through diet and exercise gain it back within a few years, and 41% eventually pack on more pounds than they lost.
The answer may be Nutrigenomics – a cutting-edge science that explores the link between genetics, nutrition, and health – aims to answer that question by looking at our genetic make up. The approach makes sense because our genes control hormone levels, enzyme levels, and other components of metabolic health, all of which influence how our bodies utilize the nutrients and calories we consume
Why You Need to Consider DNA Testing
At NJdiet.com, we believe genetic testing offers the key to long term weight loss success.
By analyzing your DNA for more than 50 specific genetic factors, we gain valuable insight into how your body processes and metabolizes certain foods. Maybe a particular gene variant causes you to gain weight when you consume too many saturated fats, or perhaps you’re unable to metabolize foods high in carbohydrates or sugar efficiently.
Whatever the issues might be, DNA Testing makes it possible to determine the best approach for you to help maintain weight loss and health.
But weight loss isn’t the only way you’ll benefit from a nutrigenomic approach to wellness. Our DNA study, also shows your specific preferences and predispositions for types of exercise programs, vitamins and other nutritional needs… in all, over 50 different metabolic factors are assessed genetically to give you a roadmap going forward.
The Evidence for a DNA-Based Diet
One of the most famous studies was conducted at Stanford University and involved 141 women following four popular diets: By the end of one year, the participants following genetically matched program had lost much better results than those who didn’t.
In another study involving 34 enrollees in an employer-based weight loss program, those on a DNA-based program had better results than their counterparts; and in a third study out of Denmark involving 7,700 people , 9 out of 10 participants saw much more long term success.
