Your Genetics and Response to Weight-Loss Interventions

Your genetics are directly related to your response to weight-loss interventions. Now that genetic testing has moved into the mainstream, our understanding of the specific genes dictating how the human body processes nutrients and how our bodies react to activities is much more precise. It is now possible to develop individually-tailored nutrition and exercise programs that are based on and curated to your unique DNA. A recent study published by the European Society of Human Genetics found that dieters employing weight management programs tailored to the individual’s genome lost up to 33% more weight than those following standard, “one size fits all” weight loss programs.
