The FTO gene is directly linked to appetite and has the strongest relationship with the size of your body.
The MTIF3 gene is associated with body size and our ability to keep weight off once it’s lost.
The PPARG gene is called the ‘thrifty’ gene as it facilitates the fat storage process to save fats for future energy needs.
The LIPC gene is involved in the way your body breaks down dietary fats and converts them into cholesterol and triglycerides. It can influence the overall balance of these fats in your blood, which in turn can affect your overall heart health.
