Based on your genetics, your genetic predisposition for Risk From Saturated Fats is
What does this mean?
Your genotypes indicate that you have typical health risks from saturated fats.
How Is Your Genetic Risk Calculated?
This result is based on the SNPs(single nucleotide polymorphism)that are associated with Risk From Saturated Fats.
These are the genes tested for Risk From Saturated Fats:
Suggested Lifestyle Changes
- Use the Nutrition Facts Label to check for saturated fat contents (amount in grams and Percent Daily Value/%DV) in foods and reduce consumption of saturated fat.
- Limit saturated fat consumption to less than 20 g per day (based on a 2,000 calorie diet, may differ according to your calorie needs).
- Choose foods with lower %DV of saturated fat in order to get less than 100% of the Daily Value each day. As a general guide, 5%DV or less of saturated fat per serving is considered low while 20%DV or more per serving is considered high.
- Opt for lean meat and poultry.
- Consider substituting regular/full-fat/whole dairy products with fat-free or low-fat (1%) dairy products (such as cheese, milk, and yoghurt) or fortified soy products.
- When dining out, you can request that the sauces, creams or gravies be served at the side to reduce consumption of SFA.
- Keep portions in check by using a smaller plate or bowl.
- Regular physical activity shows to increase flexibility of blood flow in the arteries due to accumulation of fats in arteries after a high fat meal.
