DIET is the ideal solution for those who want to lose weight and maintain a healthy weight. The test is particularly recommended to those people who have repeatedly tried to lose weight and failed.

The test analyzes 9 genes that determine the sensitivity to refined carbohydrates, saturated fats and exercise. In this way, the practitioner can prescribe a personalized and therefore more effective and long term diet.

One of the most important achievements of Nutrigenetics in weight loss is the knowledge that "a calorie is not simply a calorie", but that each of us has a different sensitivity and therefore propensity to gain weight in response to the consumption of carbohydrates and saturated fat.

This sensitivity is genetically determined and measurable. With this knowledge the practitioner can prepare a diet program that is truly in tune with the "reality" of the body of each patient.

This test also reveals the patient's sensitivity to physical activity. It should not surprise us, that even individual characteristics regarding quantity and quality (endurance or power?) of physical activity, are written in our genes. This means you can create a personalized training program and in tune with the needs of the individual, rather than a generalized inappropriate routine.

Finally, this is the only test that certainly says if the patient suffers or not from lactose intolerance, and if there is a predisposition to celiac disease that merits further study.

These are two factors that play an important role in weight control because they are often associated with increased weight gain, swelling and with pro-inflammatory processes that prevent an effective weight control and a general sense of well being.

About 71% of Italians suffer from lactose intolerance.
