Eat According to Your Genes

Eat According to Your Genes

Programs Tailored to an Individual’s DNA

Are More Effective than Generic Programs

Nutrition information overload is real. Conflicting information about food, nutrition and what foods you should eat or avoid often makes us doubt the choices we make. You may have wondered: “what’s the optimal nutrition plan for ME?”

At McDaniel Nutrition, we believe you deserve personalized nutrition. And, it doesn’t get more personal or precise than using your unique genetic makeup. Our cutting-edge genetic testing empowers you and your dietitian to feel confident in your personal nutrition plan.

Our genetic testing assesses 4 key areas of health: weight management, healthy aging, nutrient sensitivity/metabolism and physical performance.
