Food list

Why the product x in has two green smileys a food list, though I'm intolerant/allergic to product x?

Why do we sometimes get in the results that someone can’t have chocolate but they can have chocolate sauce?

Within the food list in the table sometimes there is some food you can’t have like potato and oils for example and then in the food menu component part it says you can have French fries so what is the reasoning behind having contradictory result, does it have to deal with the proportion within the meal that’s why we can have it?

What happened to the Lebanese food?

Why there is no egg boiled or fried only chicken egg, pasta with egg?

A customer has on her potential snack “bean salad any amount" but on her NOT allowed list she has: lima beans, white beans, chickpeas, kidney beans so what can she do?

Also in the fat section she said that canola oil, almonds, low fat mayonnaise are not present does that mean that she can have them?

Why are the fish items in the food list always the most affected for weight when someone is sensitive to fat? Some people can have meats but not fish although in general fish has a lower fat concentration.

NutriMe Weight Management

How is the NutriMe Weight Management prepared?

For what purpose is NutriMe Weight Management useful?

NutriMe Complete

I have difficulties in swallowing the NutriMe Complete supplement.

With NutriMe Complete, Genosense supplies food supplements too. What exactly does NutriMe Complete give to me?

The supplements from NutrieMe contain water-soluble vitamins. If taken in excess, do they pass straight through the body? If so, there would be never any build-up.

The supplements also contain the vitamins A, D3 and E which are all fat-soluble vitamins. Normally fat-soluble vitamins should not be taken daily because, rather than passing straight through the body, the body stores any excess in the liver and fat tissue when not used. Is that true?

I am concerned that if the pure supplements are taken daily, there will indeed be a gradual build up of these fat-soluble vitamins in the body. This can be toxic and lead to health problems. Are the research scientists not concerned about the build-up of these vitamins in the body, and if not, why not?

The upper level of the RDA for Vitamin D is very low. Excess is proven to be toxic to the body. Could it be supplied to children or is it toxic to small bodies?

In case of an excess build-up of Vitamin A, could it have a negative effect on eyesight?

Is there is any benefit to taking Vitamin E because it is in excess in almost every diet (vegetable oil) and not a vitamin people are normally deficient in?

Should people take a blood test first to assess any fat-soluble vitamin deficiencies before taking dietary supplements?

DNA Package

What can one find out with this DNA-test, the DNAnutri Package?

Weight Sensor

Obesity is caused by many genes. Is it sufficient to just test 8 genes?

According to which criteria is the number and allocation of the „item“ recommended?

Have genes a greater influence on the body weight than the environmental influences, eating habits or intestine bacteria?

In a study conducted by DNAnutriControl on our homepage, no sources are named. Who conducted the study when and where? Who were the participants?

In the end, is it not the calorie deficit that decides about the weight loss?

Which feedbacks do you get from clients who followed your DANN diet?

How many nutritional types do you define and how widespread are they in %?

Sport Sensor

What advantage does a DNA analysis confer when it comes to sports?

How does a customer save money on this?

What is the greatest benefit?

I do a lot of physical activity - between 4-6 times a week. Usually I do crossfit twice a week, high intensity interval training twice a week, and two hours of strength and endurance training twice a week. Is the recommended kcal count also sufficient on the days when I do HIIT or do two hours of training (usually strength first, then endurance)? In addition to this, an average calorie intake per day was recommended to me. If I understand this correctly, it is an average over one week. What if I burn more kcal than stated through physical activity? According to my understanding, it is counterproductive to train when in caloric deficit, so do I have to take extra calories to compensate for this?

Recipe Book

In the recipe book, there is only gram information and no items. How do I explain that?

DNAnutriPlus portal

Why does the portal mention servings and weight, and not items, the way the booklet does? I find this quite confusing.

There are 0 food items which are considered in the booklet as an arbitrary number, but when I incorporate this in a menu or change other foods, this article is also changed and suddenly goes from +++ g to 432 g. I don't understand this.

Questions about the final report

In the table there are 2 columns, "RDA" and "your requirements". In the legend to this, it says "... RDA ... and to what degree your daily requirements are different". Which is correct? Is the 2nd column my actual requirements, or the deviation from the RDA?

How do I explain the contradictory situation where the calcium and vitamin D3 requirements are about twice the RDA amount, and the same time the calcium intake is reported as normal, and the genetic risk of osteoporosis, however, is only average? Does not the risk correlate with the increased recommended daily requirement of micronutrients? Or can you not simply figure it this way?

Why do you recommend taking in antioxidants in the form of coffee? In your opinion, aren't there any foods that make more sense?

If it says for both coenzyme Q10 and magnesium under "effect of individual food components based your genes" that this should be increased, but the individual daily requirement of both micro-nutrients according to the table is well below the RDA, this is a contradiction according to my understanding à Which statement has more weight? Or how do the two statements complement each other?

The comment of the test saids he has elevated risk, but yet the arrow was pointed at green area,

Since the person has a higher rate of breaking down the drug diazepam, 135%, how come the adverse reaction is marked to be common? Why the effect is likely higher, isn’t it supposed to be lower?
