DNA-Based Dieting More Than Doubles Weight LossBalanceDiet Buckhead Announces Exclusive Genetic Fat Test to Develop Tailored Diet and Exercise Programs

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 10, 2014

Improved fitness is the most popular New Years resolution in America, but 25 percent of people fail to maintain the resolution past the first week (1) which some attribute to people not realizing that there are several factors that influence weight loss, such as genetics (2). A revolutionary genetic fat test developed by Interleukin Genetics has proven that people on a genotype-appropriate diet had 2.5 times greater weight loss than the other study subjects. To help people better understand the approach that their body needs in order to flourish, BalanceDiet of Buckhead in Atlanta, GA, offers its clients this exclusive test to obtain personalized diet and fitness recommendations as part of their complete lifestyle program. The weight management system has been introduced at BalanceDiet Centers nationwide, as well as through the BalanceDiet At Home program.

The metabolic genetic test is supported by a clinical study conducted by Interleukin Genetics and Stanford University, which examined weight loss for women who were on a diet consistent with their genotype category versus another group who were on diets less suitable for their genetic pattern. In addition to increased weight loss, subjects lost an average of 13.2 pounds and 2.6 inches versus an average of only 4.6 pounds and 1.2 inches for those on a genotype-inappropriate diet (3).

Interleukin Genetics researchers pinpointed certain genesspecifically, several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs)that influence an individuals genetic tendencies related to metabolism, fat absorption and storage, as well as responsiveness to various exercise intensities (4). The test consists of a simple, painless cheek swab sample and also includes a follow-up review and assessment with a trained BalanceDiet lifestyle expert.

Colleen Hawco, manager of BalanceDiet in Buckhead, says that the genetic test is used to tailor highly-effective programs that maximize clients weight loss and exercise benefits.

Our genetic test for weight loss is an exclusive service that BalanceDiet provides to its clients and is one of our most effective programs, said Hawco. We have clients who are dissatisfied with the results from other programs, and are eager to pinpoint the exact avenue they need to follow in order to achieve sustainable results.

According to Hawco, the genetic test determines the clients diet and exercise identity, for which there are three options:
