The Fit in Your Genes Program is a ground-breaking approach to weight loss. It is based on individually designed, genetically-guided approach to nutrition, exercise, and micro-nutrient supplementation that allows sustained and reproducible weight loss result.
Three areas of focus
Unlike other approaches where counting calories, avoiding certain macro-nutrients ( think low-carbohydrates or liquid diets) or performing aggressive exercise are required, this program is set to individually tailor your efforts in three major areas responsible for weight loss:
DO: exercise type, frequency and duration
EAT: percentage of protein, fat and carbohydrate you should consume
TAKE: vitamins and supplements supporting weight loss
The test is completely bloodless, and is done by collecting cells from the inside of your cheek by rubbing it with a soft, cotton-tipped applicator. The testing involves FULL genetic sequencing, and results are available in 2- 3 weeks. We typically initiate a detox program while you are awaiting your results.
What are the “DO”, “EAT” and “TAKE” parts of the program?
The “DO” part provides a genetically guided advice on frequency and type of exercise that would benefit weight-loss effort. All of us have seen men and women who seem to exercise for hours on end yet their weight-loss is modest. Alternatively, we also encountered individuals who slim down nearly immediately with even a modest amount of exercise. The opinions on type, frequency and duration of exercise are varied. Even among the experts, disagreements abound, and clearly no one size fits all. The Fit In Your Genes Program tests for variations in 3 or more genes that determine our sensitivity to various types of exercise, and are useful in creating an individually tailored program that is specific to YOU. Thus, it is no longer necessary to wonder if you should be doing what another person is doing, or if you should be following a brand-new class, exercise, or routine. Rather, you can decide based on your personal genetic profile if a new exercise or class, or some of it features will fit well with your unique exercise determinants.
The “EAT” part is really the most impressive part of the program. One knows that there is no shortage of diet advice. At the ICCLI, we do not use “diet” as a word to describe what should be a live-long pattern of healthy eating. You can probably find a “diet” advice or program for every letter of the alphabet! And while some ways of eating (such as Mediterranean diet) are clearly proven to be advantageous not just for weight loss but also for reduction in cardiac events, again, no one size will fit all. A healthy way of eating needs to be individualized. The true power of genetic testing allows us to do just that. You will literally see down to a single percentage point what is YOUR specific, individual macro-nutrient requirement. No more need to avoid ALL carbohydrates, or to go extra heavy on proteins-genetically-guided program will allow you to eat according to your genes. We will craft a healthy and genetically-guided path to allow you to feel in control of your food intake, and to eliminate the “yo-yo” effect.
The “TAKE” part of the program is truly on a cutting edge. It allows to tailor supplements and vitamins to your specific genetic make up so that cravings and imbalances are reduced. If you have a sweet tooth, to paraphrase a famous saying, “there is a gene for that!” Once your genetic variability is known, we will provide an essential micro-nutrient support that would seal the success of your weight loss effort.
