WOOCS 1.2.0

According to a large research study by King’s College, London, 99% of people fail to lose weight or maintain weight loss over the long term. Popular diets and programs are massively advertised but have no scientific data to back them. People, out of desperation after many failed attempts try many things to see if anything at all works.

The fact of the matter is, any “extreme” diet program will work for a short term. However, these programs adversely affect quality of life, by eliminating many regular food items and are impractical to follow over the long term. The KEY to weight loss is understanding your body and realizing that everybody is different. What works for one may not work for others, it’s because our metabolisms are unique. If fat and carbohydrates are universally bad, why don’t ALL people who eat these foods become fat. There are individuals, who despite high consumption of carbs and fats, remain lean. It’s because their metabolism is different.

The weight loss genetics assessment screens for genetic markers that have been shown to be associated with with aspects relating to genetic weight gain tendency, metabolism of macronutrients, energy expenditure and exercise related aspects of weight loss. This test requires a small sample of your saliva to analyze the variations in certain genes that are shown to be associated with how your body metabolizes carbohydrates, fats and proteins. This information can be used to determine the right balance of nutrients and calories to ensure healthy weight loss and, most importantly, in a sustainable manner.
