We created Gene Food as a launching off point for people on a mission to find what works best for them when it comes to health and nutrition.


Whether it be Carnivore, Vegetarian, Keto, Paleo, Mediterranean, Vegan, or something in between, it seems everyone today has a diet to sell.

But while these diets are marketed as the solution for all of us, what works for one person may not work for another.

To make matters worse, all sides shout at each other from across the Twitterverse insisting that anyone who isn’t following their chosen diet is out of touch with science.

This is frustrating for those of us who search in earnest for better health.

Who are we to trust?

We created Gene Food as a launching off point for people on a mission to find what works best for them when it comes to health and nutrition.

You could almost think of us as the referee for the diet wars.

We don’t advocate for any one diet.

We don’t sell supplements.

Instead, we created an algorithm that divides people into 20 different diet types based on their genetics. While we recognize genetics aren’t the whole story, lifestyle plays a big role as well, we see genetics as the foundation upon which we can each build our own “wellness house.”

To that end, we have created a number of different resources our community members can use on their own unique path to health.
