How Screenings Help Your Diet and Nutrition Plan
Many people use fad diets because they do not have access to what's actually going to help them lose weight or become healthy. We're all accustomed to using Google for all of our problems, but the internet and even a medical label doesn't truly know you. At PHMP we offer DNA screenings to help employees know exactly what they need to be putting or cutting from their diet to live a healthy lifestyle. If your employee wants to fit into "those" jeans, then we can help by looking at their genes. For example, a study found that people with two particular variants of the FGF21 gene were 20 percent more likely to enjoy and seek out sugary substances than others. People call it a "sweet tooth," but using a DNA screening would inform a nutritionist of the gene and allow them to help prevent employees from developing type 2 diabetes, which is often linked to a high-sugar diet.
