Ever wondered why your friend’s style of eating works so well for them, but not for you? The reason may be hidden in your DNA…

The Science Behind Diet

We’re all individuals with different genetics, living different lives, with different nutritional needs. As such, there’s a good chance the diet your friend is following won’t work for you. This is where we come in. We analyse your DNA to recommend a DNA-powered meal plan to fit your ideal macronutrient breakdown. That is, the ideal percentage of daily calories you get from carbs, fat and protein – collectively known as macronutrients. Depending on your lifestyle and health goals, we assign suitable calories to your DNA-powered meal plan.

Which DNA-Powered Meal Plan Is Right For Me?

Based on your DNA, we will recommend a meal plan suited to your body’s unique 

needs. Where each of our DNA-powered meal plans are composed of different macronutrient breakdowns, designed for different genetic profiles.

The Genes We Look At:

PPARG Gene:

Influences the fat storage process to save fats for future energy needs. Depending on your gene result, you may be more or less likely to store excess calories as fat.

FTO Gene: 

Linked to appetite, body size and risk of obesity. Depending on your gene result, you may or may not have a normal appetite and less chance of overeating.

MITF3 Gene: 

Has a strong association with a higher body mass index (BMI). Depending on your gene result, your gene may or may not have an association with a higher BMI.

Fun Fact:

62% of myDNA members have a  FTO gene result that is associated with an increased appetite and a lack of feeling full! These people would benefit from a diet higher in protein as it promotes feelings of satiety and combats that urge to snack. These people are also more likely to lose weight on a high protein diet!
