Does Your Diet Fit in Your Genes?

What if you could look into a crystal ball and predict the health problems looming in your future? And what if you could actually change your fate… with the power of what’s on your plate?

Believe it or not, you can. The day of genetic testing and nutritional prescriptions based on your, well, weak genes, has come.

According to Mark McClellan, Commissioner of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, "Nutrigenomics envisions a future in which personalized genetic profiling takes the guesswork out of deciding what you should eat. By adjusting nutrient composition in a person’s diet according to genetic profiles, gene-based nutrition planning could one day play a significant role in preventing chronic disease."

If you want to find out if your diet fits in your genes, there are several services available, including one from 23andMe.com and a Solgar product called NutrigenomX. Expect to pay around $1,000.

[Ed. Note: If you don’t want to shell out $1,000 for genetic testing, you can STILL get fit. It’s as easy as making a few simple changes to your diet and exercise regimen. Start on the path to a better, healthier life right here.

    Good article. However, I understand that the Solgar genetic test includes 12 genes important to nutrient utilization and costs $125.
