A new concept on wellness, DNA FIT body shaping programme was introduced by VLCC recently.

The programme has been tailored to suit the genetic make-up of individual customers and accordingly provide the best workout regimen for them.

VLCC founder and mentor Vandana Luthra said, “Each of us has a unique DNA make-up which determines our propensity to gain or lose weight. It is this difference in the genetic structure, which explains why two individuals enrolling for the same slimming package sometimes obtain different results from it even if their body composition, lifestyles, and dietary habits are more or less similar.” Where conventional programmes worldwide have so far focused on indicators such as BMI, BMR, BCA, and a waist-to-hip ratio, DNA FIT program considers one’s unique DNA in the weight loss process, for prescribing the most effective diet and exercise routine.

Studies have shown that a customised approach to weight loss which depends on a person’s  genetic make-up provides the best results. Studies have also revealed that individuals who opt for DNA-appropriate diets lose significantly more weight  than those whose diets are not compatible with their genes.
