DNAlysis – The DNA Diet

Testing your own genetic makeup is one of the newest technologies available for effective weight loss. Twenty genes are tested that impact metabolism and fat loss. The results provide individual recommendations that include gene-based personalised dietary changes and an eating plan to achieve optimal weight loss according to your weight, height, and fat percentage.

Your current lifestyle, exercise, supplementation, likes and dislikes will also be taken into consideration with the implementation of the meal plan to ensure the effectiveness.

Vitality Nutrition Consultations

A dietitian registered with the Vitality Wellness Network can perform Vitality Nutrition Assessments. The assessment takes 30 minutes and includes physical measurements such as height, weight, body mass index and waist circumference.

SMART goals will be established to help you to achieve your goals. Applicable guidelines from Discovery will be emailed to you that will help support your goals. Remember to bring along your Discovery membership card.

Payment Methods

Medical aid tariffs apply and consultations can be claimed from the fund. Card facilities are available.
