Vivaliti DNA for weight loss
Why use a genetically based weight-loss plan? Research shows that people can lose up to 287% more excess weight when using a plan that is customized to their individual genetic traits.
Your genetics determine how your body reacts to food, different types of activity, vitamins, and other external factors. Without these insights, any attempts to lose weight, improve your health, or reduce your risk of disease are based on a trial-and-error approach, which is not only ineffective — it wastes valuable time and money.
Vivaliti DNA tests 80 different genetic traits to give you a complete blueprint of what your body needs to reach and maintain a healthy weight. The test is conducted using an easy cheek swab, which you can do at home and mail back to us. You'll receive your results and a complete DNA blueprint in just 2-4 weeks. With actionable recommendations included with your results, your interactive health portal, and access to your Vivaliti Health Coach, you’ll have a solid foundation for significant, lasting weight loss.
What does the test measure?
Vivaliti DNA measures different genetic traits related to your eating behaviors, health risks, ideal matching diet type, risks of vitamin deficiencies, and other important factors that allow us to develop the best weight-loss blueprint for your body.
Knowing if you’re predisposed to certain eating behaviors can help you set realistic goals and adopt strategies to avoid common triggers.
Eating disinhibition: the inability to resist tempting food
Food desire: how much effort you are willing to put into obtaining your favorite foods
Satiety: feeling full after eating
Snacking: can be a healthy or unhealthy behavior depending on the foods you choose
Sweet tooth: the tendency to eat more sweets throughout the day than the general population
