Why is understanding your DNA important?
The discovery of DNA nutrition testing means you can now remove all the guesswork about what type of nutrition plan suits you best and what type of exercise your body responds best to. Prior to this technology, you had to go through a process of trial and error, often taking weeks or months and leading to frustration.
Most of our DNA is predetermined, but our genes can be influenced by our environment, the food we eat, the air we breathe and the levels of stress we are under. Understanding this, and our own unique genetic make-up, means we can personalise our lifestyles to work with our genes and not against them.
working with our genes, not against them
Maybe you struggle to maintain your desired weight, or achieve consistency with your fitness. You might have ‘failure fatigue’ as a result of ‘having tried everything’. You lack the energy to do all the things you want to do or used to be able to do and you’re frustrated that you can’t keep up with friends or family. You might feel confused and frustrated at the one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition and fitness. Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start, or what the right thing to do is to get results. Above all, you just don’t have the time to work it all out.
How to optimise your health
Eating a diet that is tailored to you is important for sleep, mental health, energy, body composition, digestion and fitness. Eating a diet based on your unique DNA will enable you to optimise your health, fitness and wellbeing.
The results of the DNA test will tell you exactly what type of exercise you respond best to, and your injury risk and recovery time. This allows you to personalise a fitness program that will give you maximum bang for buck on your time and effort. No more guesswork, no more trial and error.
Talking through the results (DNAFit) with Leanne at Bodyshot was incredibly useful to help me put the results in perspective, and most importantly, start translating them into practical changes that will fit into everyday life. Leanne works closely with the DNA testing company, so when I had questions, particularly with the fitness results, they both took time to look into these and explain in further detail what these tests are showing (and what they don’t show!). This reminded me of the importance of having experts on hand to interpret results like this.
