We have heard enough about different weight management and low-fat or low-carb programs.  Every Human Being has slight variations in their genetic makeup and so every body behaves differently to different diets.   Now there is a way to find out exactly about your own DNA and give your body what it really deserves. This article proves it !

News Hub: A Genetic Test for Weight Loss?

A study suggests a test will tell you which kind of diet is best for weight loss.

In the long-running debate over diets—low-fat or low-carb—Stanford University researchers reported Wednesday that a genetic test can help people choose which one works best for them.  In a study involving 133 overweight women, those with a genetic predisposition to benefit from a low-carbohydrate diet lost 2 1/2 times as much weight as those on the same diet without the predisposition. Similarly, women with a genetic makeup that favored a low-fat diet lost substantially more weight than women who curbed fat calories without low-fat genes. The women were followed for a year.

The U.S. News & World Report published in their December 2009 Magazine information about DNA and its effect on weight management.

Know your DNA ?

  • The more science learns about the marvelous diversity among human beings – fueled by genetic, environmental, and other factors – the clearer it becomes that a one-size-fits-all approach to dieting is bound to fail.
  • “We don’t have a good idea of how these individual gene variations interact, but we can integrate this information with what we know about health and family history to identify the best path to take in a very educated way,” says Colleen Fogarty Draper, a registered dietitian, nutritional genomics consultant, and founder of Nugenso Nutrition, a private nutrition consultation practice in the Boston area. She uses Inherent Health’s weight management test, based on DNA taken from a cheek swab, to identify five key variations in genes regulating fat absorption, fat-cell formation, and other factors… She adds that there’s a psychological effect, too. “Once they see it on paper and see a test result, they’re more likely to comply,” she says. “It offers a little more inspiration.”
  • “We can’t define the perfect personalized diet,” says Ken Kornman, a dentist with a doctorate in microbiology and immunology who is founder and chief science officer of the Inherent Health brand’s parent company, Interleukin Genetics. “What we feel confident that we can do is to substantially improve upon the current random results that someone gets when they go on a diet.”
