Fat

It’s important to understand that your body fat distribution is dependent on factors like environment, behaviour, diet and your genes. All of these contribute for needing more or less fat, but knowing your genotype will give you an advantage in understanding your own case and how to consume fat efficiently. For instance, the gene APOA2 is linked to the distribution of body fat, regulation of cholesterol levels and the breakdown of fat. Certain variants in this gene have been linked to higher body fat levels, especially when consuming specific diets.
