DNA Weight Loss
Engineered for your
body’s unique chemistry
Lose the guesswork and the weight with our DNA weight loss program
Here at Florida Aesthetics and Medical Weight Loss, we leverage cutting-edge science and technology to help our patients lose weight and enjoy a healthy lifestyle the safe and healthy way. Our DNA weight loss program uses GxSlim DAN analysis to develop a weight loss plan based on your body’s unique chemistry.
GxSlim is a scientifically-based weight management program that identifies your unique genetic makeup and then provides diet and exercise strategies that are tailored to your genotype. This is not guesswork, one-size-fits-all of fad dieting of any kind– GxSlim provides the only diet and exercise recommendations you will ever need, because they are based on your DNA.
Personalized Health Management, Starting With Your DNA
We Collect and analyze a sample of your DNA
When you sign up for the DNA weight loss program, your trained weight loss coach will take a sample of your saliva using a cheek swap. We will send your sample to lab and perform a thorough scientific analysis of your unique genotype. Your sample and results will remain completely safe and confidential.
We share our discoveries with you
Once the analysis is complete, you will receive a comprehensive online report with specific details about your genetic makeup. Your trained wight loss coach will then provide a detailed set of recommendations matched to your genotype with a unique action plan about what kind of food you should or should not eat and the types of exercise you should perform to maximize weight loss and put you closer to your weight goal.
We will support you with resources tailored your specific genotype
The online platform provides you with a comprehensive resource library, which contains hundreds of videos, articles, and recipes that are curated specifically for your genotype. Also, your trained weight loss coach will be available to assist you and answer your questions.
Genetic testing has moved into the mainstream and is the future of preventive health. In addition to the thousands of tests being offered for medical conditions and diseases, the science and research behind genetic testing related to lifestyle and wellness markers has progressed to the point of understanding the specific genes dictating how the human body processes carbohydrates, fat, protein, micro-nutrients, etc., and how specific genes determine the effectiveness of certain fitness activities.
With the genetic testing technology and scientific understanding of the human genome available today, it is now possible to develop individually tailored nutrition and exercise programs that are based on and tailored to your unique DNA. Only now has the cost of genetic testing come down to the point where it is feasible to use this technology for health management programs offered to the general public.
Program tailored to an individual’s DNA have proven to be much more effective than generic programs. A recent study published by the European Society of Human Genetics found that dieters employing weight management programs tailored to the individual’s genome lost up to 33% more weight than those following standard, “one size fits all” weight loss programs. With the latest genomic technology, any health management program that does not take an individual’s genetic profile into account is simply guesswork.
Clinical studies and research on genetic testing related to lifestyle and wellness markers have been rapidly increasing in quality and volume since the human genome was first mapped on 2003. As the testing technology improves and the cost of analyzing an individual’s DNA decreases, more research facilities and universities around the world are able to perform more research studies with larger test subject groups, all leading to more being discovered about the connections between genetics and preventive health.
