More than just eating too much and not exercising enough
There are several factors that can contribute to you being overweight or obese and a major factor is your genetic makeup. Undertaking a Genetic Test with Darwin Dietitians will identify gene mutation and help you make informed decisions about managing your health care based on your DNA. It is a non-invasive, cheek cell DNA test that is quick and painless.
When you eat food that your body is unable to process efficiently it results in an elevation of inflammatory markers (metaflammation) which is known to cause weight gain. Darwin Dietitians Genetic Testing will analyse 26 different genes associated with food metabolism and give you the answers to make appropriate food choices for your body. Studies have showed statistically significant greater weight loss and metabolic benefit when compared to individuals on diets not matched to their genotype and we are confident at Darwin Dietitians that we can get the same results for you.
