Time to Fit Into Your Genes: Scientifically Proven Genetic Tests for Weight Loss

Posted: December 31, 2014 at 8:47 pm

Stanford University studies show that those who follow a DNA-based diet lose 2.5 times more weight than those who do not-- BalanceDiet offers a proprietary genetic test for weight management based on clients DNA, then provides a personal lifestyle plan designed using each individuals test results.

Melisa Jakubiec, a BalanceDiet Club Director, tells FOX News, Tampa Bay: By looking at four genes, we can determine if they [BalanceDiet clients] are sensitive to fat or carbohydrates, or a little of both. Then, the diet can be further personalized to facilitate their weight loss. Similar genetic testing programs can be thousands of dollars, what I love about the BalanceDiet program is its simplicity and how affordable it is. For under $200 a client can have insight into their body and a lifetime of wisdom on food and eating strategies tailored to them

Christopher Gardner, Associate Professor of Medicine at Stanford University published a study in April 2013 that looked at 141 women who were following four diets that focus on varying portions of carbohydrates and fats according to national standards. Each woman provided a DNA test sample. After one year, women on average who followed a diet that matched their specific genetic makeup lost 2.5x more weight than those women who did not follow the diet according to their genetic makeup. To put these results in perspective, they lost approximately 13 pounds versus 4 pounds, respectively.

Based on this Stanford University Study as well as multiple other studies, the BalanceDiet genetic weight loss test is designed to determine a persons ideal dietary food identity with a simple cotton swab test.

Rena Anne Apple, client at BalanceDiet, who after losing 70lbs, still attends the center to maintain her weight: I started gaining weight in middle school and I just kept gaining weight up until I went to college, and even after college I topped out at 275lbs...Now that Im on maintenance, I dont have to eliminate all carbs from my diet. I can say Okay, Ill have this potato, but Im going to eliminate bread...I look like a completely different person from when I was [275lbs]... Im a totally different person, and I love it! One of the things that has helped me stick to the plan is how easy it is to follow.

BalanceDiet provides private coaching from highly trained lifestyle experts who customize personal nutrition and wellness plans as a followup to support a clients genetic test results.
