The DNA insights


Using up to 372 genetic variants, Arivale Scientists curate a profile that helps predict the impact your genetics have on your BMI. The relevant genetic variants have different effects for males and females, so your profile is calculated for your biological sex.

High waist circumference

Using up to 149 genetic variants, explore the impact of your genetics on your waist circumference. The relevant genetic variants have different effects for men and women, so your profile is calculated for your biological sex.

Weight gain from dietary fat

What weight loss diet might work best for you? Using four impactful variants, we show your predisposition for gaining weight when levels of total fat in the diet are higher.

Weight gain from saturated fat

Is your body especially sensitive to saturated fat? We look at two important variants that can indicate your body is predisposed to weight gain when consuming a diet high in saturated fats, like coconut oil and animal fats.

Weight gain from carbohydrates

Would it surprise you to know that cutting healthy carbs may not support your weight loss? We analyze three genetic variants that show whether you may have a decreased tendency to gain weight on a diet rich in complex carbohydrates, like starchy vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.

Weight gain with low activity

Research shows that people with certain genetic variants are more likely to be overweight when they are physically inactive. Arivale uses four genetic variants to calculate your predisposition for gaining weight when inactive.

Sweet taste preference

Are you predisposed to craving sweets? Do you feel like you need more sugar to satisfy your cravings? We look at two genetic variants that can affect how your body perceives sugar.

Bitter taste preference

Are you a super taster? Your ability to taste bitter flavors is impacted by your genetics and could result in you not liking the taste of bitter vegetables.

“I learned from my genetics that I have a high risk for obesity, but also that I’ll respond best to a low fat diet. I felt more aware, and better prepared to tackle my goal.”

Molly, Arivale Member

“When I saw my genetics, it validated a lot. I knew that I ate too much sugar, but I learned that a bigger issue for me is saturated fat. I have genes associated with a high sensitivity to saturated fat—and the sugary foods I was eating were packed with it!”

Marty, Arivale Member

“What works for your body, your genetics—that doesn’t lie. It’s been transformational for me.”

Heather, Arivale Member


Unprecedented data

We’re defined by the combination of data – not just your genetics, but your blood markers and lifestyle, too – coaching, and your actions. We also have a behind-the-scenes goal of developing impactful research. With data from members who consent to add their de-identified data to our data set, we’ve been able to conduct research into human health and longevity that has the potential to impact generations to come.

The science

Your weight is largely determined by a combination of genetics, lifestyle choices (such as diet and exercise), and a number of other factors. Genetic variants related to weight loss are connected to the way your body processes food and responds to exercise, but they do not guarantee that you will or will not be successful with any given diet plan.

Your genetic profile may help you narrow in on a diet plan that you might prefer or find more successful than others, or even give you a better understanding of your existing preferences. Everyone, regardless of their genetics, will benefit from increased exercise and a well-balanced diet.


Your genetics play a part, but your diet and exercise choices have the biggest impact on your weight.

  • Our understanding of how genetics influences body weight will continue to improve as research develops.
