The answer is maybe! Our genes reveal many things about our health, including how our bodies process food and fuel our movements. In particular, there are 7 Components of Weight Loss that are specifically influenced by our DNA. By analyzing DNA, and developing recommendations based on what it reveals - we have the potential to change some long held beliefs about weight loss.
These are the 7 Components of Weight Loss:
If your body is resistant to losing weight
How well your body is able to process carbohydrates in your diet
How much body fat you can lose through cardio exercise
How well your body is able to effectively absorb folate (a B-complex vitamin)
How sensitive your body is to the amount of fat in your diet
How your body responds to strength training
How sensitive your body is to the amount of protein in your diet
Adopting a diet or exercise program with understanding your specific genotypes, offers us an even higher success rate potential for our clients to lose weight and keep it off for good .
