Based on your genetics, your genetic predisposition for Metabolism Rate is
What does this mean?
Your genotype is associated with an increased basal metabolic rate. It means you have a higher metabolism rate even when you are resting and your body uses energy faster than those with slower metabolism rate. Thus, your body will require more calories.
How Is Your Genetic Risk Calculated?
This result is based on the SNPs(single nucleotide polymorphism)that are associated with Metabolism Rate.
Suggested Lifestyle Changes
- Do not starve yourself. Be sure to eat regularly, with at least three meals a day.
- In the context of weight management, caloric restriction will generally lead to short-term reduction in resting metabolic rate. The reduction will make it difficult for obese individuals to lose weight.
- Sufficient protein intake (e.g. eggs and poultry) will help to maintain lean tissue and possibly slow down metabolic rate decline.
- Exercise daily to regulate your resting metabolic rate.
- Increase your lean muscle mass by increasing your physical activity and strength training exercises like weight lifting. Include high-intensity exercises in your workout regime (eg. high-intensity interval training (HIIT)).
- For weight loss, it is advisable to have a long-term weight goal with progressive short-term weight goals with 6 months interim. This allows for adjustment of your resting metabolic rate to the new body mass before setting the next short-term weight goal.
- Avoid a sedentary lifestyle by actively walking or taking the stairs whenever possible.
Result Explanation Recommendations:
- Cultivate good sleep hygiene by refraining from drinking coffee or tea in the evening and avoid taking long naps in the afternoon.
- Set a consistent time for sleeping and waking up, usually 8 hours on average.
- Travelling to a country with a different time zone can affect one? body clock. Plan ahead on the sleep schedule you need before, during and after the trip to minimise the effect of jet lag.
