The power of DNA profiling

Lettuce on a plate

Tired of training and diet plans that don’t work for you?

Questioned if you’re getting the best results from your efforts?

In this post I reveal how you know if a low-carb or low-fat diet works best for your body…

…and show you some extra powerful insights that you can only get from DNA profiling.

Let’s start by looking at the highly demonised carb!

Carbohydrates affect each person in a different way

DNA Carb Sensitivity

How sensitive are you to carbs?

A high sensitivity to carbs means you will absorb a lot of energy from any carbs you eat.

A low sensitivity to carbs means you will NOT absorb a lot of energy from any carbs you eat.

If you want to control your weight, understanding how sensitive to carbs you are is critical.

DNA profiling tells you exactly how sensitive you are, so you know if low-carb will work for you.

Fats are also absorbed uniquely by each person

Fat sensitivity

How sensitive are you to fats?

We can learn the same thing about fats as we can about carbs.

  • High sensitivity = You get lots of energy from fats
  • Low sensitivity = You get lower energy from fats

Now we know why low carb, high fat diets do NOT work for everyone…

There is no one size fits all approach.

That’s not all DNA profiling can help you with…

Your DNA and the best type of training

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is everywhere at the moment. This works great…For some people.

For others more endurance based training may produce better results.

With DNA profiling, you’ll learn if your body responds best to power (think HIIT) or endurance (think steady run) types of training.

You can then tailor your weekly sessions to what’s best for you, ensuring you get the most out of every session.

Rest days are just as important as the workouts

DNA Recovery Profile

Are you recovering properly?

Poor recovery time can lead to fatigue, low motivation and reduced results.

Using DNA profiling, you can see if you need more or less rest between hard sessions.

It’s NOT quantity, but quality that counts.

Your perfect excuse for taking a well earned rest day has arrived!

Do you have an increased need for certain nutrients?

Are you eating properly post-workout?

The way your body deals with inflammation after exercise is unique.

It’s important that your body gets the nutrients it needs when it needs them to recover fully.

DNA profiling helps you understand if you have an increased need for certain micronutrients, like omega-3, vitamin C and certain vegetables.

Learn what to eat to recover well, get in-shape and feel energised.

HOW IT WORKS

There are 3 stages

TEST

  • We send you a DNA saliva swab collection kit in the post
  • It’s simple to do at home and taken from your mouth in 1 minute
  • You send it (free) to the lab for processing

ANALYSE

  • Receive your detailed diet, fitness and meal plan reports (see below)
  • We go over your results so you fully understand them
  • The results are then also used to tailor your diet and to some extent your training plan

IMPROVE

  • We discuss the report findings and how they can be implemented
  • You choose which changes are most important to you based on your goals
  • I’m on hand to guide you through the findings whenever you want
