GenoPalate: Customized Gene Report Tells Us What we SHOULD Eat!

GenoPalate: Customized Gene Report Tells Us What we SHOULD Eat!

As a super nerd, I’m into genetics testing and all of the secrets that my own DNA have to unlock. From geneology, to cancer risk, I’ve been doing about every test possible. So I was VERY EXCITED to learn that there was a Nutritional DNA test through Genopalate using my DNA to get a comprehensive list of the exact foods that match best with my genetics!

The report takes 4-6 weeks to get back and provides helpful information on your body’s ideal intake of carbohydrates, protein, fats, vitamins and minerals.  It’s fascinating to take our very own genetic information to see what each of use SHOULD be eating! Just one variant in your genes can lead to drastic differences in the way your body processes food. They influence how you metabolize nutrients and absorb certain vitamins. *Note: If you’ve already done a 23andme.com, the test is only $39 using your existing genetic data report.

You will also receive “Your Foods” which includes a list of over 85 foods that you may benefit from eating more of, based on your genetic results.

My report was very helpful and if anything helped reaffirm what my body has been trying to tell me for YEARS. For example, a high fat Keto diet is not for me. My report recommends a Moderately Low Total Fat diet. Based on my genetics, I may benefit from decreasing my total fat intake to 24%-31% of my daily calories.  As I have heart disease that runs in my family, I know that the benefits of decreased fats can can include: increased HDL (good) cholesterol, improved blood sugar regulation, improved metabolic health and decreased body mass index (BMI), triglyceride levels, blood pressure, LDL (bad) cholesterol and insulin resistance.

Carbs are NOT my enemy! At least, not the fibrous dense carbs, which just so happen to be my favorite! Based on my nutritional genetic report, I may benefit from increasing your total carbohydrate intake to 50%-57%. Benefits can include: decreased body mass index (BMI), improved insulin resistance and increased HDL (good) cholesterol.

There is also a detailed vitamin report that says which ones I should increase based on my genotype. The list of 85 recommended foods is fun – sadly  I’m not a fan of the cheese varieties it recommend. Cottage cheese and swiss cheese..really? Wah! Where’s the brie? Ack!

Having this nutritional report helps complete my daily food ‘game plan’ for my personal health and it also helps steer me in choices.  One diet plan may work for me, but not for you!

By combining your genes, nutrition recommendations and the nutrient composition of foods, GenoPalate is able to provide you with a comprehensive list of foods that all have the highest amount of the nutrients that benefit you most.

 

Will this report detect food allergies? NO.

There are no genetic assays for detecting food allergies through DNA. This is due to food allergies, such as egg, peanut, shellfish, etc., not being caused by genetic variants, but instead caused by live, autoimmune factors. Although some allergies are genetic, they are genetic in the immune system rather than in the actual DNA.
