Dreading the scale? Battling to lose weight?

Work with one of our trained practitioners to craft a diet plan that will give you the best chance of ensuring healthy, sustainable weight loss
About This Test
DNA Diet® is a genetic test designed to guide the personalisation of diet and lifestyle recommendations in order to manage weight. It provides insight into which diet type (low carbohydrate, low fat, or Mediterranean diet) would be most suitable for you according to your unique genetic makeup.
The DNA Diet test is suitable for any individual who is trying to lose weight, or has experienced weight loss resistance in the past, or has tried many different diet types without success, or who simply wants to optimise their macronutrient distribution for improved weight management outcomes. There is no one diet or way of eating that is correct for everyone. DNA Diet will help you understand how your genetic profile can impact your response to different eating plans and which type of diet is best for you
How It Works
Studies have shown that dietary intake and nutrition knowledge is greatly improved in individuals who received personalised nutrition advice as compared to generalized diet advice.
The selection of genes included in the DNA Diet test have multiple peer review studies examining how variations in these genes contribute to differences in dietary interventions.
These genes impact metabolism, absorption and storage of fats and carbohydrates, to assist in creating a personalized diet plan.
