Wondering what your 23 and Me data indicates about your genetic susceptibility to gain weight? I’ve dug into the research to see which genes are associated with obesity — along with specific life hacks that take into account your genetic variants.
We don’t all have the same genetic variants that cause weight gain. Thus, you need to optimize your weight loss plan for the genetic variants that you carry.
No snake-oil, no quick fixes – just science that you can apply to fit your genes
- FTO Gene Variants (strongly associated with increased BMI)
- Leptin Receptor Variants (are you still hungry after eating?)
- MC4R Variants (heavier since you were a baby? muscular?)
