The genetic results are in. I am what is known as a Fat Burner. In order for me to reach an optimal body weight I need to keep my Fat consumption under 30% of my total calories per day and I need to workout intensely at least 3 times per week. The MET total for the week needs to be a minimum of 13. The MET is a value assigned to different exercises. For example, riding my bike outdoors with hills for 45 minutes is an 8 MET activity.
So, what does all of this mean? That for me fat is the problem, and lofat eating is the way to stay healthy. This genetic test has confirmed some things that I already knew about my body and has given me a definite path. No more stabbing in the dark, wondering if I should go hi-protein, lo-carb or a balanced approach or Mediteranian or Asian, or fasting for 2 days per week, etc., etc., etc. It is such a relief.
