What Can Your Genes Reveal About Your Diet and Exercise?
Have you ever wondered why someone can eat the same foods or perform the same exercises as you, but achieve different results? The answer likely exists within your DNA. Genetic testing can reveal your unique likelihood of weight loss, macronutrient (fat, carbohydrate, protein) utilization, training response, recovery and injury risk—even your intrinsic motivation to exercise and your level of impulse control.
Using this information, you can develop a nutrition and exercise program that takes your genetic individuality into account. For example, should you do long, slow cardio or short bursts or intense activity? Do you respond better to power workouts or endurance training? Can including more protein in your diet affect the amount of weight you will lose? And most importantly for your long-term health and risk of disease, what is the likelihood that you have increased systemic inflammation?
You can change how you age. Humans lose bone and muscle mass over time, but armed with specific information on the best way to maintain your own individual body, you might be able to slow or stop this decline. You can even measure the amount of muscle and fat you have - especially dangerous visceral fat - with a simple test.
