Henny Marie Baden Johansen (lost 15kg after receiving MGD report)
"I had got into the unfortunate habit of eating cheese with everything and I found my skin was grey and dull, my nails were brittle and split...
For me, the test has been the best motivation ever Ė I found it so easy as I just had to follow very precise instructions. Even me, as a bit of a rebel could stick to the report suggestions.
Since I changed my diet according to my MGD report, along with my weight loss my skin's great again, my nails are better and I feel healthy."

"Before I received my test results, I could sleep anytime, anywhere. Since I've made the suggested changes I've halved the amount of sleep I need Ė I'm able to wake every morning without an alarm clock with plenty of energy for the day ahead.
I enjoy running most days as well as lifting weights, neither of which tire me out like they did before. Best of all, my unhealthy food cravings have gone, both physically and mentally, and I haven't had the slightest urge to overeat - this is a first.
Although I am obviously pleased at the weight I've lost, what I'm really over the moon with is this boost in energy levels and the fact I no longer want to binge."
Nicola Passingham's weight increased when she was prescribed new medication. She tried various diets without much success before taking her My-Gene-Diet test.
Surprised by the number of variations which came back which predisposed her to weight gain (five out of seven), Nicola quickly embarked on making the dietary changes suggested: a diet low in carbohydrate but higher in protein and fat.
"I chose MGD to try and get some answers about what really was the best way to eat. I started my new diet in January 2013 and have subsequently lost over two stone."
"I took the my-gene-diet test to try and find some explanation as to why Iíve always struggled with my weight Ė what worked for others so often didnít seem to work for me..
Once I got my results, I tailored my diet around my reportís findings and it had a marked effect on my weight. I was recommended a high carb diet to counteract the bad effects of fats (these are as a result of the double variations in my FTO gene) along with a plan that was tailored to my ACTB3 gene, which makes me more suited to endurance exercise.
This advice, along with continued use of sister-product Zotrim, meant that I finally lost the weight and kept it off Ė something Iíd wanted to achieve all my life."
