If you’re like me, Winter makes me want to eat anything and everything in my path. I am so conscious about my eating and exercise routine at the moment and lately, I feel as if I need to do a lot more to “be healthy”, as I’m getting older.
I think I sometimes also just use the cold as an excuse to eat, but I honestly feel like my waist expands with every single bite I eat these days… literally. Why is that? Is it just in my DNA to pick up weight easily?
This is exactly why I’m so excited to find out more about the CTG Centre and DNAlysis.
CTG’s purpose is to understand how your genes may impact the way you respond to the world around you. They do this by translating your genetic results into personalised and actionable diet, lifestyle and medical recommendations.
CTG is the first clinical centre of its kind in the world and it’s right here in Cape Town! Headed up by the Cape Town based Nutrigenomics expert Dr Yael Joffe PhD RD, the medical and nutrition team at CTG offer Gene-based Personalised Health and Nutrition interventions.
