|For real estate agent and mother of two Amy
Katsis, losing weight had been a life-long struggle. After having
children, Amy found it increasingly difficult to lose weight and
she grew frustrated at what became a familiar cycle of minimal
weight loss and even bigger weight gain following periods of
restrictive fad dieting.
"It's been a big struggle my whole life, even during college
years. I was always trying to lose weight for something," says Amy.
"At my heaviest I was about 175. When I was that weight I was tired
all of the time, sluggish and I really didn't want to exert any
more energy than I had to."
Like many dieters, Amy was losing hope that she would ever reach
her ideal weight and thought she would be happy if she could just
get below 150 pounds. A friend told her about the Inherent Health
Weight Management Genetic Test and she decided to give it a shot.
After sending in her sample to the Company's lab, Amy received her
report back that placed her in the genetic category of Carb Reducer
and High MET.
Amy says understanding her genetic tendencies for weight gain
helped her lose the weight and keep it off. "I didn't feel like I
was dieting or depriving myself," she adds.
Amy surpassed her weight loss goal and managed to lose 30 pounds
in just over three months. Now that Amy has reached her goal
weight, she maintains her weight with less intensive exercise and
practices good eating habits for a Carb Reducer. Amy still
incorporates carbs into her diet, but says the key to success has
been eating healthier carbohydrates during the earlier part of the
day when her metabolism is more active.
"It feels good because it's not a diet. The test taught me how
to make this a lifestyle change."
