What it claims: Cre­ated by a team of sci­en­tists in Aus­tralia, the sim­ple swab test will give you a break­down of seven gene fac­tors, from how you process fats to why you may not feel full af­ter eat­ing. It also looks at your FTO gene, which will give you an in­sight into whether you’re more or less prone to obe­sity. The re­sults come in a de­tailed book­let with an on­line por­tal to ad­vise you of por­tion sizes and which type of diet is most suited to you. It can even of­fer you a de­tailed meal plan based on whether you’re look­ing to lose weight or main­tain it. cost: £49, Lloyds Phar­macy ( heat ver­dict: Pro­duc­tion Ed­i­tor Lisa says, “Af­ter just a swab of a cot­ton bud and a 14-day wait, I re­ceived a 22-page doc­u­ment de­tail­ing in some­times-too-sci­en­tific de­tail how my genes were in­flu­enc­ing ev­ery­thing from obe­sity to choles­terol. It was a bit much to take in, so I ended up skip­ping to the at-a-glance charts, but I was in­ter­ested to read I had an is­sue pro­cess­ing fatty acids. I’d sus­pected that and will now turn to sup­ple­ments. As well as the anal­y­sis, the plan rec­om­mends a diet to fol­low de­pend­ing on whether you want to lose or main­tain weight. Op­tions in­clude low-fat, Mediter­ranean and higher protein. It also gives op­ti­mum calo­rie counts, a break­down of how much protein, carbs and fat to have at each meal, as well as recipes. It’s techy, but could prove use­ful if other diet plans haven’t worked for you.”
