Optimal You Program
Can you imagine having a completely different life in the next 5 months?
How about a different body?
After a year in research and development, and with great anticipation, the Experts and the Nutritional Genomics Institute have released the FIRST, truly personalized weight loss and wellness program ever developed.
Our brand new gene panel combining the best of our 3 most popular panels: Optimal DietDx, SportDx and LeanDx
The Nutrigenomics Experts at NGI offer a nutrition and lifestyle based program while the Functional Medicine experts at GenMedx offer a hybrid Medical Weight Loss program that can work independently or synergistically with our NGI team.
*GenMedx/NGI membership is included for Optimal You or Medical Weight Loss Participants.
Medical Weight Loss Program
Are you curious about the popular weight loss medications you've heard about in the media? Are you concerned about potential side effects or if it really is the right medication for you? The genome specialists at NGI have bio-hacked yet another condition and pathway and have learned just who (and who should not) be taking these medications, what labs to track before, during and after and of course what optimal dietary interventions help increase their long term success! What is even better? In most cases, we are able to provide insurance coverage for your medication. Please contact us for more information or register below.
Nutritional Genomics and Lifestyle Optimal You Program
Everyone’s optimal diet is different and is based on their genes and current state of health. In this section, we address questions such as:
•Do you have issues that may increase inflammatory weight gain such as oxalate, histamine, lactose, or sulfur sensitivity?
•Would popular diets like the Ketogenic diet or the Adkin’s diet work well for weight loss or does your body respond better to more traditional low-calorie or low carbohydrate diets?
•What role does sleep play in weight loss and management?
•Is intermittent fasting a successful strategy for weight loss or will it result in excess inflammation or hormonal imbalances?
The answers to these questions will help you begin to learn what is the best diet for you by uncovering inflammatory triggers in your food and providing lifestyle, supplement and diet changes that will significantly improve your health.
When choosing your optimal diet, we must also take into consideration the state of your gut health, genetic and lifestyle intolerances and how these factors interact with your immune system. The OptimalYouDx ® is not a comprehensive list of genes that impact diet. You can find a more inclusive list of genes, including genes that impact nutrient and carbohydrate metabolism as well as gut health and disease risk, in the Omics Optimal DietDx ® genome panel.
Nutritional Genomics and Lifestyle Optimal You Program
Optimal Exercise for Weight Loss
As with diet and inflammation, there are genes that determine what type of exercise is ideal for weight loss. In this section of the panel we discover if you are ideally suited for endurance sports like marathons or if your body is more suited for weightlifting. In some cases, excessive high intensity sports result in further inflammation and may actually be inhibiting your weight loss! In other cases, you may have genes that pre-determine excessive bulking for heavy weightlifting. These are important discoveries and most importantly, modifiable not only with behaviors but often with biochemistry!
The OptimalYouDx ® is not a comprehensive list of genes that impact exercise. You can find a more inclusive list of genes, including genes that impact predict your injury risk, recovery needs, V02max, ergogonics, and more in the Omics SportDx ® genome panel.
What Does the Optimal You Program Include?
Personalized genomic analysis on optimal exercise and sport performance designed specifically for weight loss and management
Personalized genomic analysis on optimal diet to lower inflammation, stress, disease risk and increase and maintain weight loss
A custom genomic panel to discover why weight loss strategies have failed in the past, how to correct them and how to maintain them to for good!
