GenoType Diet Compatibility

Read our GenoType Bread Basket leaflet for more information on the individual GenoTypes.

In his book Change Your Genetic Destiny, Peter D'Adamo has defined six GenoTypes, based on individual genetic factors. He introduces the first ever method for determining your GenoType at home, without expensive testing, and tailoring your life style to your findings. The six genetic types give readers a complete picture of how their GenoType evolved, their predisposition for weight loss/gain, immune function, disease propensity, and a comprehensive diet, exercise and life style profile tailored to fit their type. With food lists, meal plans, exercise plans, and a detailed resource list, this book has everything you need to start losing weight and feeling great.
