Nutrition Insights

Have you inherited ideal fat burning genes?

Your DNA holds a blueprint for how your body processes what you eat. We’ll give you insights into how your body might break down and store fats, your appetite, and more. Know the right foods for your unique body and start heading towards your goals.

It’s time to remove the guesswork from your diet.

Appetite & Weight

Are you a serial snacker?

The FTO gene has direct links to your appetite & cravings and has the strongest relationship with the size of your body.

Fat Burning & Weight

Ever wondered why some people seem to have more trouble losing or gaining weight than others?

Your ADIPOQ gene produces a fat-burning hormone that helps you burn fat and control your energy levels.

Body Size & Weight Regain

Some people find it easier to keep weight off, thanks to their DNA.

The MTIF3 gene affects our body size and ability to keep weight off once we lose it.

Fat Storage

Do you feel like you put on weight just by looking at fatty foods?

Your DNA could be why. The PPARG gene is called the ‘thrifty’ gene as it facilitates the fat storage process, saving fats to burn into energy later.

Will cutting calories actually help you lose weight?

People with a certain ADIPOQ variant will benefit the most from cutting calories.

54% of all myDNA members carry this variant. These people can actually burn more fat than others by consuming fewer calories.

Is your FTO gene putting you at higher risk of obesity?

Certain FTO variations are linked with a 60% higher chance of obesity.

However, if those people follow a protein-rich diet, they will lose more weight than others. myDNA can help you understand how your FTO gene works, and what you can do to work with it and reach your best self.

Power vs Endurance

Were you made for strength or long distance?

A combination of five genes (ACTN3, AGT, AMPD1, PPARGC1A & IL6) help determine whether you’re built for power, endurance, or if you’re an All-Rounder!

Stamina

How hard do you need to push yourself?

Three genes help determine your stamina potential — PPARG1A, IL6 and AGT. They’re all about muscle energy levels and responsiveness.

Recovery

How much recovery do your muscles actually need after working out?

Should you rest more than other people between sets? Your IL6, ACTN3 and AMPD1 genes can tell us how important your warm-ups and cool-downs are.

Injury Risk

Your COL5A1 and COL1A1 genes produce collagen to strengthen your ligaments.

Therefore, some genetic variations can make you more prone to injury. To stay safe, we’ll let you know if you should stretch more to lower your chance of exercise and sports-related injuries.

Are you using your DNA to your advantage?

Matching your training program to your genetic profile can triple athletic performance.

A 2016 study1 found that athletic performance tripled over an 8 week period when the training program was matched to the subject’s genetic profile.

Do you share key genetics with olympians?

Olympic sprinters often have a genetic advantage that boosts performance.

They are 7-8 times more likely to carry an ACTN3 genotype which increases muscle power performance. 31% of myDNA members also carry this variant.

Could you be at higher risk of injury?

Certain COL5A1 variants increase your risk of injury.

If your genes are causing an inadequate amount of collagen to be provided to your tendons and ligaments, myDNA can help you take notice of this and train safely.

What’s in your genes?

You’ve inherited more from your mum and dad than just good looks.

The genes you’ve inherited are responsible for up to 80% of health outcomes relating to your diet, fitness and sleep.

How much of a difference can 0.1% make?

On a genetic level, 99.9% of our genetic makeup is identical.

However, it’s that last tiny 0.1% that determines your eye colour, hair colour, blood type, and how your body reacts to food and exercise. myDNA gives you simple & specific insights into that 0.1%.
