Can you explain what the pie chart means that was emailed to me?

The 48 questions that led to the development of the pie chart were formulated by analyzing the genetic profiles of thousands of DNA tests. The questions were created using a combination of both lifestyle and genetic information. There are some things you can change and some that you cannot. For example, you can’t change your birth weight but you can change whether you skip meals or not. <<read more>>

Are you selling supplements tailored to my results?

No, we don't sell supplements however we may make recommendations for you to include some selected nutrients and list foods that contain these nutrients as well as a few products that you may then choose to purchase for yourself.  In general our approach is food based.

What is the best DNA Diet choice for me?

We have two different options for you; become a member of our site and stay current with all the latest genomic information and how this may help you to stay healthy. The second choice is a six week self knowledge weight loss program. This program may be repeated at any time. There is a structure to each week including food and emotion diaries, questionnaires and learning opportunities.
We suggest you make your decision based on your current health goal values. If weight is an important and urgent goal then the six week program is for you. If long term health is your goal then you may decide to become a member and consider the six week program at another time

What is included?
