Your genes have a significant and sometimes dramatic effect on how your body responds to different types of exercise and diet. Different genes are known to affect your physical fitness, your tendency to be better at strength or endurance based activities, your metabolism and your sensitivity to a range of foods in your diet. In fact, the need for senseless “Yo-Yo” diets has gone for good.
Our test is for anyone interested in understanding how to effectively and efficiently improve their diet, supplements and workout for overall improvements in health and wellbeing.
Why can’t I lose weight?
I am always on a diet! Your genes affect certain aspects of your metabolism and the processes your body uses to convert what you eat and drink into energy. This test won’t solve your dieting issues but it will help you understand your food habits and attitude to food and why you have certain cravings. This in turn may help you manage these cravings more effectively. Your results will also help identify particular food groups that make certain individuals more prone to weight gain.
Why doesn’t all exercise help me lose weight?
Your genetic profile helps to determine the right type of exercise for you. For example, you may be better at doing longer periods of lighter or more moderate exercise than intense and short workouts. Knowing this means that you can tailor your exercise regime and therefore benefit from a plan that suits you better.
Will the diet and fitness test identify exactly what exercises suit my body?
Yes. This test will determine if you are at higher than normal risk for certain types of injury or excessive pain, inflammation and soreness after certain types of training. It will provide you with ideas to eliminate or reduce these risks.
