GenoVive focuses on helping you lose weight while using your DNA type and providing the proper foods to coincide with it. You will have six days of meals each week and then your seventh day is a free day. The free day is not meant to be a free for all, but a day where you get to eat some of your favorite healthy foods. The meals you eat will include antibiotic and hormone free beef, pork and chicken as the protein. You won’t have to purchase additional foods to add to your meals because everything you need is provided.
To get started, you simply fill out the lifestyle and Weight Management DNA test kit order form. This kit is a complete test and includes swabs for the inside of your mouth. After your analysis is completed, you will receive a report that contains your meal program and exercise plan. Once your shipments start, you will receive six meal kits each week. These meal kits include breakfast, lunch, dinner, two snacks, beverages, a multivitamin and an omega 3 supplement. Your analysis will also determine the number of calories you eat per day. The three different calorie tiers for each DNA type are 1300, 1600 or 1900.EXERCISE

Exercise isn’t required, but highly recommended to help you get the most out of the program. Your workout will include cardiovascular warm ups as well as different conditioning exercises to help you build muscle and burn fat.
