Pulkit, a 25 year old banking professional, had struggled with
his weight since middle school. As an adult, he made numerous
attempts to shed significant pounds, relying on "common knowledge"
- cut out the sweets and exercise - but like millions of people in
the same boat, was never able to lose more than a few at a time.

toll on his self-esteem and Pulkit had come to terms that he would

the strength training that he previously engaged in). Although
Pulkit tried "low carb" diets in the past, the test results
educated him on the difference between good carbs and bad carbs and

stronger both mentally and physically. The genetic test gave me the
information and confidence that I needed to dramatically alter my
life. I never again have to wonder if the latest diet trend would
work for me because my genes will never change," he said. "I have
come to understand that losing weight should require work, but it
should not be a constant struggle. I've adopted the information
from the test into my lifestyle to ensure I will always retain a
