GENETIC WEIGHT LOSS IN HOUSTON, TEXAS
HOW IS GENETIC WEIGHT LOSS DIFFERENT?
As more progress is being made in the field of genomics—the study of our body’s complex chemistry and the functional role each gene plays—greater insight and understanding is being relied on to explain how specific genes can affect our health and wellness. Considered fundamental to the future of preventative medicine, genetic testing takes the guesswork out of understanding how effectively we respond to different forms of exercise, how we utilize macronutrients, and whether or not we’re adequately processing micronutrients. Placing emphasis on how these factors work together can affect our efforts in weight loss and optimal health.
Genetic weight loss is the weight loss solution that is based on our body’s unique and complex genetic profile. After undergoing genetic testing, an analysis of relevant markers will help us engineer an optimized, individualized approach that takes into account your genetic response and tendencies.
While some weight management programs aim to be the solution for all individuals, the one-size-fits-all standard fails to acknowledge what we now know surrounding genetics and their indications for weight loss. Each individual has an elaborate, one-of-a-kind chemistry that can influence the way their body responds to the type of food they consume, exercise, and caloric intake. Using this chemistry to our advantage can help us optimize nutrition and fitness to favor our body and DNA.

Why is genetic weight loss more effective than other weight loss programs?
Genetic weight loss looks at a number of genetic factors that help us determine how your body responds to various forms of fitness activity as well as how effectively your body is utilizing nutrients.
Unlike other weight loss programs, genetic weight loss can help us understand your body’s weight loss ability with diet and exercise by showing us things like your fat loss response to cardio, body composition response to strength training, nutrient tendencies, and how well your body is utilizing fat and carbs.
What will genetic testing tell me that will help me lose weight?
Genetic testing analyzes the genetic markers that have been recognized for their ability to affect factors that influence weight loss. These relevant aspects of our genome can provide understanding surrounding how effectively we burn fat from cardio, how we utilize macronutrients, process essential vitamins, and even how cardio can help with insulin sensitivity and glucose levels.
Will the DNA analysis tell me which foods to avoid for weight loss?
DNA analysis for weight loss will provide results that show how effectively your body is using macronutrients and micronutrients. This can provide insight into what foods you should be eating as well as how to supplement your diet if you are lacking in a particular nutrient. The genetic weight loss report will also provide suggestions for healthy sources of each macro and micronutrient and detail how many calories you should be consuming each day for healthy weight loss.
How is exercise determined by my genes?
The genetic weight loss report highlights the results from genes that determine fat loss response to cardio, fitness response to cardio, and body composition response to strength training. These results can help us craft an exercise approach that will help you optimize your health and move forward towards your weight loss goals.
How can I use my genetic weight loss report to help me lose weight?
Along with detailing the results from your DNA analysis in regards to the relevant genetic markers, the report will provide detailed suggestions for nutrition and exercise. The report will not only help you to understand the number of calories you should be consuming each day, but also the types of food you should be eating more or less of based on your results. The report will also take information from the genetic markers that determine your body’s response to fitness activity, helping us generate a workout plan that can help you reach your goals.
