Why Get Tested?
Weight Insights Report
Studies show that individuals who used a personalized weight loss plan using their genetic information lost two times more weight than those that didn’t. (the reference for this fact is http://ilgenetics.com/interleukin-genetics-inc-and-stanford-university-report-genetic-test-improves-weight-loss-success/) Understanding your U-ology means you can access the kind of personalized diet and exercise plans that was once only available to those in private clinics. Your recommendations are based on your own DNA, and backed by the most current, evidence-based scientific research. We analyze and interpret your genetic results to give you customized nutritional, dietary, and exercise advice. This report also provides information about your eating habits, fitness performance, injury risk, and food intolerance, all based on your genetic makeup, which will allow you to fine tune your personal fitness, nutritional plan, and overall well-being. With this knowledge, you can minimize or even reverse some of your health and fitness predispositions with relatively simple changes in nourishment and lifestyle.
How The Test Works
Order Kit Online
Create an account and purchase your test. Once approved by a Viazoi physician, we will ship the kit right to your home. It’s that simple.
Provide a saliva sample using the Viazoi collection kit then ship back using the prepaid packaging.
Get your Results
Review your results securely online and read the recommendations. If desired, you can bring use with your trainer or nutritionist or talk to one of our coaches.
What Do I Do with the Results?
Everyone’s DNA is different and everyone’s response and sensitivity to certain types of physical activity or food is diverse. This is why people who use a personalized fitness plan based on their genetic information successfully lose more weight than people who follow a one-size-fits all diet plan.
- Create and follow an exercise plan that works best for your body to effectively lose weight
- Nourish your body with a diet that is tailored for your metabolism (low fat, low carb, etc.)
- Find out the right combination of diet and exercise for you
Fad exercise programs and diets could seriously limit reaching your full potential. Your own DNA results from this test is the informational guide for the most effective weight loss program.
