Studies show multiple genetic variants can significant influence a person’s body weight, and how they respond to specific diets and exercise plans.
MC4R – disrupts appetite suppression
NMB – associated with food disinhibition
FTO – influences energy intake, diet impact and satiety
SH2B1 – interrupts a satiety hormone signalling pathway
BDNF – influences exercise motivation
APOA2 – alters saturated fat metabolism
AMY1 – reduces the ability to digest starch
FABP2 – increases fatty acid uptake
ADIPOQ – disrupts normal glucose regulation
ADRB2 – affects weight loss in response to exercise
CLOCK – disrupts the normal circadian rhythm
