Tired of everyone giving you conflicting advice regarding weight loss? The reason why people swear to veganism and others to paleotarianism could be that it is down to your genetic makeup. Indeed, everyone is born with certain predispositions to different health conditions and this includes how easy it is for you to reach your ideal weight. As much as two thirds of factors affecting obesity is down to your genes. This happens through several pathways. For instance, certain genes predict hunger and satiety signals, making it harder for some people to feel full; other genes are related to how your body responds to low-carb or high-carb diets. Learn more about how DNA testing can assist you in weight-loss and weight-gain.

In small, mild amounts, stress is a healthy adaptive response to threatening situations (in this case labelled "eustress"). Eustress helps us handle difficult situations via activation of separate pathways in our body, and helps us focus all our energy to handle the threat, and not 'waste' it elsewhere on functions that can wait. However, if the pressure increases, stress can become counter productive ("distress"), and when we are continuously bombarded with difficult and threatening situations, without time to recuperate or recover, consequences could be dire. Learn about how hormone testing can help you fight bad stress and burnout.


Sport genetics is a recent scientific domain investigating genetic dispositions to different types of sports and training. With the aid of DNA testing we can find which type of sports and exercise is likely to be suitable to your body and how you should adjust your training to coincide with your genetic makeup.
