Genetic Tests Deliver Results to Drive Better Diet and Fitness Success

What food is the best to eat in order to lose weight? What are the best exercises to drop a dress or pants size? These questions have frustrated those looking to make a healthy change for years. Most people know that genes impact external physical features, but what they may not realize is how genes also help determine how the body metabolizes food, uses energy, processes carbohydrates and much more.

ARCpoint Labs, a national leader in drug testing and wellness services, with nearly 100 franchise locations across the country, is proud to unveil new diet and weight loss genetic testing that unlocks an individual’s personal genetic code and provides a customized breakdown of how an individual’s body will respond to various foods and exercise.

“Our new lines of personalized diet and weight loss genetic testing can give you the knowledge about your body to tailor a workout routine and diet that will help you better achieve your weight loss and fitness goals,” said Felix Mirando, chief executive officer of ARCpoint Labs. “You’ll be able to meal plan based on how your body will react to certain foods, and design your workouts to maximize your fitness success.”

Oftentimes the most commonly used weight loss practices do not work well due to unique differences in metabolism. While two people may have the same weight loss goals, the same diets or lifestyle changes might not help them both equally. Now, through a simple swab of the mouth, the new diet and weight loss genetic test will provide a blueprint for each individual’s unique genes and how they will respond best – and worst – to carbohydrates, fats, proteins, exercise and more.

“Most people are aware that genes determine things like eye color and height, and it’s become common knowledge that metabolism helps determine our weight,” said Mirando. “However, the ability to lose weight is also very affected by each individual’s unique genetic profile. We now offer an up close look into how certain foods are metabolized and how each individual reacts to exercises.”

Genes determine seven components of weight loss, including: if an individual’s body is resistant to losing weight, how well an individual’s body is able to process carbohydrates, how much body fat an individual can lose through cardio exercise, how well an individual’s body is able to effectively absorb folate (a B-complex vitamin), how sensitive an individual’s body is to the amount of fat in his or her diet, how an individual’s body responds to strength training, and finally, how sensitive an individual’s body is to protein.

Through ARCpoint Labs’ diet and weight loss genetic testing, individuals have access to an easy-to-read results report, allowing them to easily reference the results at any time. The report also includes a set of recommendations that will help an individual achieve their goals based exclusively on their genetic results. Because genes do not change, the results are relevant for a lifetime.

“These new tests represent a radical shift in how individuals will approach health and fitness in the future,” Mirando said. “This diet and weight loss genetic test offers advanced insight that can truly change the lives of those seeking a healthier lifestyle, all through a simple mouth swab.”

The diet and weight loss genetic test can be performed at participating ARCpoint Labs locations and is already available in Denver, Portland, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Nashville, and more markets across the country. A full listing of ARCpoint Labs locations can be found at
