Nutrient intake and physical activity are essential factors affecting body weight, body composition, energy metabolism, and energy utilization. With the advances in genome research and investigations into genetic variations now it's known that up to 70% of body weight variability is down to our genes and that the personal genetic constitution is involved in the susceptibility to gaining or losing weight in response to a diet, appetite, lipid over-absorption, adipogenesis, thermogenesis, among others.
'DNA Weight Control' testkit involves an analysis of nine genes, giving results and advice on
-Propensity of obesity
-Your satiety in response to food (feeling full)
-Weight regain risk
-Your optimal intensity of exercise
-Your optimal type of exercise
-Your optimal diet (proportion of fats, carbohydrates, and protein)
