What you will learn
Studies show that 95% of individuals who diet gain back the pounds that they shed within several years, and 41% of individuals who try dieting eventually gain back more pounds than they lost.
With your personalized dietPower report you can tailor your diet around how your body reacts to different foods. No more guessing! Learn which foods are best to help you maintain a healthy body and manage your weight more efficiently.
The genes analyzed in our dietPower test play an important role in weight regulation and our overall health. They are involved in regulating our appetite and how our body breaks down different foods for energy.
We test genes responsible for:
Diet Management: How your body burns fat, your sensitivity to carbohydrates and insulin, your cholesterol regulation, and your protein requirements to help determine your optimum diet.
Weight Response: Your body’s ability to control body mass index (BMI).
Food Tolerances: Your tolerances to alcohol, caffeine, salt, lactose, gluten and sugar cravings.
Food Taste and Preferences: Your preference for caffeine, carbohydrates, fats and protein. Your taste ability for bitter, salt, sweet tastes, as well as smoking behaviour.
Vitamins and Supplements: Your need for vitamins including vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin B9 (folate), vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E as well as your need for supplements such as Calcium, Iodine, Iron, Omega 3 and Omega 6 to stay healthy.
Reduce uncertainty and take a healthy, informed approach to your diet to optimize your weight and well-being!
