ACCESS NOW ($99) Start with Level 1

Everyone is different and complex. Yet the general social media themes out there make weight loss generic and simplistic. Creating successful weight loss for one is completely different to creating it for another.


We experience variations in the way our genes interact with the environment, leading to distinct outcomes in several aspects:

  1. These variations result in physiological differences within our autonomic nervous system, hormonal balance, and the behaviour of adipose and muscle tissues.
  2. They are also associated with distinctions in our anatomical composition, including organ structure, skeletal framework, and weight distribution.
  3. Additionally, our behaviours and our relationship with food are influenced by these differences, which stem from the unique combination of our genetic makeup, hormonal profile, and environmental influences.

Fortunately machine learning, decades of research and data allows the patterns of all of these features to be seen in a comprehensive and satisfying way.
