Genetic Testing

Genetic testing has moved into the mainstream and is the future of preventive health. In addition to the thousands of tests being offered for medical conditions and diseases, the science and research behind genetic testing related to lifestyle and wellness markers has progressed to the point of understanding the specific genes dictating how the human body processes carbohydrates, fat, protein, micronutrients, etc., and how specific genes determine the effectiveness of certain fitness activities.

With the genetic testing technology and scientific understanding of the human genome available today, it is now possible to develop individually tailored nutrition and exercise programs that are based on and tailored to your unique DNA. Only now has the cost of genetic testing come down to the point where it is feasible to use this technology for health management programs offered to the general public.

Programs tailored to an individual’s DNA have proven to be very effective. A recent study published by the European Society of Human Genetics found that dieters employing weight management programs tailored to the individual’s genome lost up to 33% more weight than those following standard, “one size fits all” weight loss programs. With the latest genomic technology, health or weight management programs can take an individual’s genetic profile into account and provide a more detailed approach to care.

What is GxSlim?

GxSlim is a scientifically-based weight management program that identifies your unique genetic makeup and then provides diet and exercise strategies that are tailored to your genotype. The diet and exercise recommendations you will receive are based on your DNA. It isn’t a one size fits all approach. GxSlim will help you understand how your body uses food. It will show you what kinds of foods you should or should not eat, where you may have deficiencies or excesses, even how you should exercise in order to optimize your weight loss results.
