Tired of conflicting weight loss advice? The reason it is all so confusing might be because there is no such thing as an optimal lifestyle for weight loss -- rather, it comes down to your genetic makeup.
Studies have shown that variation in certain genes has an impact on our requirement of nutrition and changes the impact that different foodstuffs may have on health. These genetic markers may signal susceptibilities to certain health conditions.
Our hormone and DNA test kits provide the output of genetic analysis on a range of genes. Testing is easy: in order to send us a saliva specimen, you simply spit in a tube and send the tube to us in a supplied envelope. Our reports contain your results, their relationship to your health, and customized advice on nutrition and exercise routines to reach and maintain your ideal weight.
Ever wondered why there are so many conflicting expert opinions regarding the ultimate weight-loss diet? Perhaps it is because a universal diet doesn't exist but that it is down to your genetic constitution. Nutrient intake and physical activity are essential factors affecting body weight, body composition, energy metabolism, and energy utilization. Up to two-thirds of our ability to gain or lose weight is down to our genes, which are involved in the susceptibility to gaining or losing weight in response to a given diet, to appetite, lipid over-absorption, and more.
This kit provides actionable results to achieve your ideal weight, identifying lifestyles that are apt for your genetic makeup. The report places you in one of four diet camps: low carb, low carbohydrate, high protein, or balanced according to your genetic makeup.
Tables of foodstuffs specific to your profile are included to aid you in your meal choices. In addition, the report includes a description of the best type of physical exercise for your body.
The DNA test kit from Persometrics requires a saliva sample to be returned to our lab. From this, we provide you with a report to tell you about your fat and carbohydrate sensitivity and weight-loss ability. We list provide recommended diets and physical activities based on your genetic profile. The report gives results and advice on: -Propensity of obesity, -Your satiety in response to food (feeling full), -Fat sensitivity, -Carbohydrate sensitivity, -Cravings, -Weight regain risk, -Your optimal intensity of exercise, -Your optimal type of exercise and -Your optimal diet (proportion of fats, carbohydrates, and protein).

The Persometrics Hormone Weight Control kit gives you a full personalised report based on biomarker analysis and a diet assessment. Your hormone levels have a direct impact on how your body stores and burns fat, and this relationship is bidirectional. Chronic high levels of cortisol are typically associated with a specific type of body morphology, with fat deposits seen around the abdomen. If you have an "apple-shape" body, you may be suffering from hypercortisolism. The report gives some indications as to how to reduce cortisol (if applicable) and also identifies which time of the day is the best suited for exercising.
The Hormone Weight Control kit is based on four samples of saliva that you obtain in your own home.
