DietCypher FAQs

You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers.

There are a number of reasons why people struggle with weight loss, but it boils down to one core cause: as an adult, the energy (calories) you provide your body from food and drink is equal to, or more than, the energy it needs. But before you blame calories or a poor metabolism, know that they are only part of this complex question. How your body gets its energy from the foods you eat, uses (metabolizes) that energy, and stores that energy (e.g. fat) depends on a number of things, including your genetics. While scientists are working to discover all the different factors involved, current research suggests that a handful of key genes affect how the human body uses the fat, carbohydrate and protein it consumes. Based on this research, the DietCypher algorithm analyzes your DNA to determine which type of diet plan is likely to provide the most weight loss success.

DietCypher is not simply a diet, it’s a personal guide pointing you in the direction of maximized diet-based weight loss. DietCypher decodes several of your genes to determine how the fat, carbohydrate and protein you eat can affect your weight. Upon analyzing your genes, the DietCypher algorithm assigns you to one of our unique diets, called DietCodes. We then provide you with a full report, which includes recommendations on diet, foods, and popular weight loss programs that may work best for you.

DietCypher’s core service is a DietCode determined by its proprietary algorithm, which predicts and recommends the best diet-based weight-loss program for you based on your DNA. Without your DNA data file, we are unable to recommend a DietCode. For those who have used genotyping services like 23andMe, Ancestry and MyHeritage, you can access an electronic file of your raw DNA data, and send it to us for analysis.

After you receive your 23andMe, Ancestry or MyHeritage report, your electronic file of raw DNA will be available to you, free of charge, from whichever service you chose. You simply need to request and download it (download as a “.zip” file). You will need to open the “.zip” file to reveal the “.txt” or “.csv” file with your DNA data inside. Then, just upload the “.txt” or “.csv” file onto DietCypher’s secure site, and you will receive your customized DietCode report within 2 business days of purchase.

Nothing is more personal and private than genetic information. We believe that genomic privacy is an inherent human right which is why we do not share your genetic information with anyone, ever. In addition, DietCypher does not sequence or analyze your entire genome, but instead, analyzes variations in key genes using your own DNA data.

Once you upload your DNA data file onto our secure site, it is temporarily stored on one of our US-based servers. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to ensure all of your data, genetic and otherwise, are encrypted and secured. Once we perform the genetic analysis using our proprietary algorithm, we assign you a DietCode, send you the full report, and permanently delete your DNA file.

Once you upload and submit your DNA data file and submit payment through the DietCypher website, you will receive your full and customized DietCode report within 2 business days.
