Use your raw data w/ pay-what-you-can genetic tool ▶︎http://www.foundmyfitness.com/genetics

This video breaks down, point-by-point what gene polymorphisms you might look at, and how they relate to very specific micronutrients. A few examples of genes with common polymorphism discussed are MTHFR and folate, NBPF3 and vitamin B6, FUT2 and vitamin B12, BCMO1 and beta-carotene, FADS2 and omega-3 fatty acids, CYP2R1 and vitamin D, PEMT and choline as well as APOE4 and FOXO3.

    I found you when you were on the Joe Rogan channel, at that time i was fasting wrong. I started the time restricted eating method and lost more than 20 pounds of solid fat while also gaining lean muscle mass. Thank you for exposing the knowledge on how to really build muscle without any drugs like steroids.

  2. Excellent presentation both in delivery and material. May I suggest to your tech folks that they work out a way for you to be 4 to 5 feet away from camera? This will result in a more flattering presentation which may result in longer watch time and by extension more effective education. Thanks for all you do.

  3. Ronda Patrick. The BEST!!! ☺

  4. I don't like the conclusions – to take supplements. Just eat meat, like we've been doing for millions of years. Then all these genomic differences become irrelevant because you'll be getting all that you need.

  5. FoundMyFitness — Thank you! This is brilliant. I just read an article on sensorineural hearing loss and 5-MTHF in a Life Extension Magazine. But your discussion is more in-depth, hence allowing a much better understanding, not only of polymorphisms and 5, 10-methylenetetrahydrofolate plus supplementation of 5-MTHF, not only of how riboflavin (B2), pyridoxal-5'-phosphate (B6) and thiamine (e.g., benfotiamine) fit into the picture as co-enzymes, but of polymorphisms and everything else you discuss. Top post! !

  6. 23andme only offers either the $99 Ancestry service or the $199 Health + Ancestry service. How dare they not include a Health only option?

  7. Hi Rhonda, Amazing videos, thanks. Any chance of that in depth video in Apoe4? I did listen to the end of that Rogan podcast which was good, but it'd be great to get a nutritional run-down specifically for Apoe4s. I think I have enough info from your smoothies to get going anyway. Thanks

  8. Rhonda what is your opinion on the blood type diet?

  9. I have APOE E3/E4.Please suggest me appropriate diet.

  10. Can anyone please advise me. My 23andMe report does not make any mention at all of Genes such as MTHFR, FOXO3 etc. Having just run my report through Rhonda's / Foundmyfittness screening there is still no mention of them, positive or negatively or even less noteworthy. I'm therefore not sure if they have actually been screened for at al, or that they have been screened for but they were not found, so were not mentioned. Please help if you know the answer. Many Thanks.

    Could you explain the metabolic pathway of COMT polymorphism?

  12. I think my mind has just expanded into another dimension.

    How can I find out whether or not I have those genetic variants? I have a 23andMe with the health reports but I don’t see a section that lists the individual genes

  14. Hi may I ask how many polymorphism s are there csn you test for each of them?? Would you be so kind to let us know them and what you can be tested for

  15. I wish more women were like you.

    Any nutritional and dietary suggestions for GJB1 mutations, gap junction protein beta 1, would be a real life saver.

  18. How is this not taught to the general public in schools? It’s shameful

  19. Well I have G6pd…is it safe and necessary to supplement With NAC or should I just get a good folic acid??

  20. Hello doctor I have a question for you?
