The Generation Fit and Trim® Weight Loss Program

Here at the Center for Medical Genetics we have developed a weight loss program that not only enables you to take the Generation Fit and Trim® DNA test to discover how your genes interact with your food and fitness, but also allows you one on one consultations with a genetic counselor and physician. The DNA weight loss plan includes:

  • Initial consultation with a physician or genetic counselor to teach you how genes and weight loss are connected.
  • Generation Fit and Trim® DNA test,  done with a simple saliva sample.
  • Prescribed medication if needed and pharmacogenetic test to learn how your genes will interact with future medications you may take or are currently taking.
  • Follow up appointment to discuss results and get customized nutrition and fitness plan based on Generation Fit and Trim® DNA test results.
  • Weekly check-ins to monitor progress.

For patients without insurance we offer a financial assistance program. Please contact our billing department for more information.

One on One Physician and Genetic Counselor Consultations

At your initial visit you will meet with our physician who will explain the program to you and find out about your current lifestyle and nutrition choices, as well as to discuss the basics of how genes and weight loss are related. Based on this consultation the physician will guide you through the following suggested plans to get to your fitness and weight loss goals.

The Generation Fit and Trim® Test examines specific genetic markers to give you personal insight about how your body processes sugars, fats, vitamins and nutrients.  Our report includes a detailed analysis on how your body responds to exercise based upon your genetics. By providing an individualized road map of strategies and recommendations, our testing guides you towards optimal health.

The Generation Pharmacogenetics® Test

Our Generation Pharmacogenetics® will be run on you if our physician decides that including medication will aid your weight loss and fitness goals. The test is a simple cheek swab which our staff will assist you with. The entire process takes only a few minutes. Genetic testing for weight loss can go a long way to determining what pharmacogenetic-determined medicine is right for you.cheek-swab-1024x683

Here’s what our patients are already saying:

shutterstock_162665675-1024x683I am starting the Fit and Trim program now and I truly believe this program will work for my entire life. It has changed the way I eat and made me addicted to exercising! I have never felt so good, and I am only 30!

11755632_10153344198616760_515089046831943997_nI lost over 50 pounds and went from a size 22 to a size 6! The program was very easy to follow, the DNA test was extremely easy to take and I liked that I was able to eat real food. I now love to go shopping and even do some modeling on the side. Thanks Fit and Trim® for helping me make a positive lifestyle change!

10511334_10154003810116934_2940953945560129905_nAs a healthcare professional, I studied and understood the approach and liked the fact that, from the start, I ate real food that worked with my own DNA. The results were immediate and I found the program very easy to follow. As the weight came off, my energy level increased and I found it easy to incorporate exercise into the program. Now, 50 pounds lighter and close to my goal weight, I look forward to entering a maintenance phase and finally the Wellness Phase of the program. I believe that Fit and Trim® has discovered an ideal approach that leads to sustainable results through lifestyle changes!
