Your DNA is unique to you, your diet should be too

DNA Diet is designed to assist the healthcare practitioner in the design of a personalised healthy eating plan based on individual genetic differences. As part of this world-leading product’s offering, DNA Diet also provides additional insight into how each patient individual responds to:
Mono-unsaturated fat
Poly-unsaturated fat
carbohydrates,
saturated fats, and
exercise
This allows a dietician to personalise and optimise an eating plan that is scientifically driven to work.

It is important to note that DNA Diet is not a diet plan and simply having the test done in no way contributes to weight loss. It is a tool that your healthcare practitioner will use to better understand your genetic profile, helping them to recommend a healthy eating plan best suited to you.

There is no one diet or way of eating that is correct for everyone, but DNA Diet will identify the best way for each person. DNA Diet tests several gene variations that impact metabolism, absorption and storage of fats and carbohydrates, as well as eating behaviour to understand how an individual’s genetic profile will impact their response to our most effective healthy eating plans:
Low fat
Mediterranean
Low Carbohydrate

Weight management and healthy eating are integral to long-term health and can prevent poor health and various chronic diseases. DNA Diet is used as a tool in my practice to gain insight into a patients’ requirements for healthy eating.Genetic testing
