The What IF Plan
The What IF Plan is the world's first Intermittent Fasting Weight Management programme based on an individual's DNA and blood markers.
The What IF Plan DNA Test looks at genetic markers associated with weight loss and weight management.The plan also includes a baseline at-home finger-prick blood test, which considers potential causes as to why you may not be losing weight. The test looks at your thyroid function to check if it is your metabolism which may be the reason why you aren't losing weight. It also includes HbA1c (diabetes check), iron (to test for anaemia, a prime cause of fatigue and low energy), and vitamin D, which research has shown to impact body weight.
Intermittent Fasting has proved so effective for weight loss and maintaining that desired weight loss, but it isn't for everyone - individuals with Type 1 diabetes, uncontrolled thyroid issues, of the elderly or underweight should avoid. Instead, these individuals should opt for the Diet and Fitness Test instead, but if you want to give Intermittent Fasting a go or have tried it with success in the past just sign up here.
The What IF Plan includes a 60 minute Skype/phone consultation with a MSc. qualified Nutritionist to discuss your DNA results and report, and any specific nutrition concerns you may have.
How it Works
Once you have bought your DNA test online and we have received your order, we will send your DNA kit out by Royal Mail first class.
When you receive your DNA kit you will see that it contains your swab, your sample envelope (to put your DNA swab in once you have taken your sample), and a pre-addressed/pre-paid envelope which you place the sample envelope in.
Once the lab receives your DNA sample, it will take approximately 14-21 days to receive your DNA report. During this time when your sample is being processed, you will receive several informative emails. These emails will include lots of interesting information, including what genes we cover, what the results mean and much more.
