The Food List
Since we can find out, through a genetic analysis, which energy sources (fat or carbohydrates) are causing obesity for you, we can evaluate the nutrients according to your own genes.
The food list contains more than 900+ different nutrients that were evaluated based on your genetic profile, and allows you to easily lose weight based on the information provided by your genes.
Here you can see how the Food list will help you make your selection
|Food item amount
The food item amount is the MAXIMUM amount of each food item you should eat. If you want to eat more of this type of food, you have to invest another of your daily food items. You can also use half of a food item and spend the other half on another type of food. You do not need to eat all of each food item if you are not hungry. Some food items are labelled with "any amount - no food item". This means that this type of food contains so few calories that they do not count as food items. You can eat these items when you have used up your daily food items and are still hungry.
|Green weight icons
Green weight icons indicate that this type of food has the optimal balance between carbohydrates, fat and protein. The more green icons a type of food has, the better its macronutrient balance is for you. Try to plan your meals using mostly positively rated types of food with five or six green weight icons. Generally try to vary your diet and do not eat many of the same or similar types of food at once.
|Red weight icons
Red weight icons indicate that this type of food does not have a suitable balance between carbohydrates, fat and protein for you. The worse the balance of macronutrient is, the more red icons this type of food is rated with. Eat food in the red category only occasionally and try not to eat more than one negatively rated food type per day. Try to prefer food types with few icons over food types with many red weight icons.
|Warning - Order form information
If you have informed us of any allergies or intolerances that you suffer from or you just want to avoid some kind of food, you may find a warning symbol (!) in this section of the table. This means that this type of food may contain substances that can cause allergic reactions or symptoms of a food intolerance. This warning is solely based on the information you provided in the order form and no genes are tested for this section. PLEASE NOTE! This warning is a guideline to help you plan your diet and is in no way a complete and accurate list of ingredients. Always check the components of each food item you eat if you suffer from a known food allergy.
The Food list is included in each DNAnutriControl program, and helps you lose weight or eat healthy, or even do both in the same time.
