DNA testing allows Dr. Thomas, DNP, APRN to determine your weight-loss nutrition type based on the amount of each macronutrient your body needs for optimum weight loss. Things that might affect which nutrition type you fall into include carbohydrate and saturated fat sensitivity and lactose and gluten intolerance risk. Based on your genetic profile, Dr. Thomas, DNP, APRN will identify which of the following four weight-loss nutrition types you belong to:
● This weight-loss type aims to increase the body’s capability to distribute inhaled oxygen to the muscles through increased physical exercise.
● This type focuses on a heart-healthy eating plan based on Mediterranean-style diet.
● This weight-loss nutrition type follows a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that burns fat in the body for energy rather than carbs.
● Low-fat nutrition types consume a diet of low-fat and moderate-carbohydrate foods, making it easier to cut calories and lose weight.
