EXCITING NEW WEIGHT CONTROL TEST!

EXCITING NEW WEIGHT CONTROL TEST!

I just took a genetic test offered through a lab I work with and it’s quite interesting! This test is called “Find Why” Weight Control Panel. It tests 5 genetic markers to gain insight into weight issues such as:

  • Regulation of metabolism and satiety
  • Regulation of fullness and meal frequency
  • Sensitivity to carbohydrates and stress impact
  • Fat absorption and insulin regulation of sugar
  • Regulation of insulin and leptin systems

fredigitalphoto.netSo what did I learn?

I am a carrier for 3 out of the 5 listed above. This means I am very sensitive to simple carbohydrates such as flour, sugars and alcohol; I do gain weight when I eat them. I also have a higher chance of insulin resistance and type 2 Diabetes. My body needs a higher protein diet, where exercise alone won’t lose the weight, and I should do weight training before I eat. I have a poor response to stress so I need to take care of my adrenals, and I also have an increased absorption of fatty acids and do best with                            polyunsaturated fats (my Norwegian heritage, I guess). There is more, but this gives you an idea.
