The science

Your weight is largely determined by how often you exercise, the type of training you do, your body type, and your diet. Genetic variants related to fitness and weight loss are connected to the way that 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 DNA may help you narrow in on new diet plans or exercises that you might prefer or find more successful than others, or even just a better understanding of your existing preferences. Everyone, regardless of their genetics, will benefit from increased exercise and a well-balanced diet.

Impact

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

Limitations

  • This product will not provide any medical information.

  • Results may be more accurate for individuals of certain genetic backgrounds.

  • Results do not determine or limit your ability to gain or lose weight, nor which exercises you will enjoy.

  • Our understanding of the best diet and exercise decisions based on your DNA will improve with more research.
