Trouble With Weight Loss? The Problem May Not Be What You Think

Have you ever tried to hammer in a nail with a screwdriver? Of course not, that would be asinine. But yet, this is the same approach many people take when it comes to their diet and losing weight. This “square peg in a round hole” strategy has to stop. 

Our bodies are all different and should be treated as such if we want to lose (and keep off) excess weight. This is where genetic weight loss services in Draper can be of value. 

We here at Mountain Valley Wellness utilize the power of genetic weight loss to uncover your genetic makeup. This then allows us to offer the nutrition and weight loss services you need that will be most effective for your particular body type. 

However, at this point, you may be asking yourself

What is Genetic Weight Loss?

In layman’s terms, genetic weight loss is simply your body’s ability to lose weight based on your genetic makeup.

In 2019, Harvard released a study that connected how genetics affect weight loss. It concluded that your genetics do play a bigger role in your health than we initially suspected.

Now, this isn’t a pass to live an unhealthy lifestyle and then blame it on your hereditary shortcomings. But rather, it’s to shine light on the fact that more is at play here.

In the study, it suggested that based on their genetic makeup, some people had a 25% higher propensity to becoming overweight, while for others, that figure was as high as 75% – or in some cases – even 80%! 

This means that your genetics are an important factor that can determine your overall health. That’s why we are so passionate about our genetic wellness program. It’s all about educating and informing you about who you really are on the genetic and molecular level. 

With this kind of self-awareness, we’ll be able to better understand the foods, exercises, and lifestyle choices that will be most beneficial for your health and wellness.
