)-- Results Weight Lossâ is excited to announce they are the First to offer a Genetic Test in their local centers with the ability to then create unique plans, using their proprietary OptiGenÔ Weight Management Program for every client based on their genes. OptiGenÔ is a new and powerful tool that will further help Results clients in realizing personalized nutrition for weight loss. The scientific findings on which OptiGenÔ is based have been featured recently on The Today Show, CBS Morning News, and in The Wall Street Journal.
Results developed OptiGenÔ based on recent findings from a clinical study by Stanford University showing that certain individuals can achieve greater weight loss results with a diet program matched to their genetics. Drawing from these new scientific findings, OptiGenÔ allows clients to lose more weight with a genotype-matched diet; in fact, average weight loss has been shown to be over 2.5 times greater with a genotype-matched diet.
The Genetic Test involves a simple, non-invasive cheek swab, performed by the client, onsite at their local Results Weight Lossâ Center. Test samples are then sent to a state-of-the-art CLIA-certified laboratory for analysis.
“We’ve always known that some weight loss programs work better for some people than others,” said Pamela Powderly, registered dietician at Results Weight Loss. “This test helps us to zero in on the most effective program for each client.”
Test results determine if a client will benefit from a low-fat, low-carbohydrate or balanced program. In the privacy of a one-on-one session with their counselor, Results’ clients learn exactly how their body processes macronutrients and the appropriate OptiGenÔ Nutrition Plan will be uniquely customized for them based on their genetics, lifestyle and goals.
“In this field, we have been looking for the key, that one link that truly identifies what kind of program will work best for a given client. What is effective for one individual doesn’t always work for another and until now, it’s been difficult to pinpoint exactly why,” says Dr. Kenneth Bisson, Results Weight Loss Medical Director. “This research into genotype patterns is the most exciting development that we have seen to date that assists us in understanding the individual’s unique weight loss issues.”
