Our Story

Like many companies, DietCypher has been years in the making. It started decades ago, with a desire to help people who were fed up with weight loss failures. “Nothing seems to work” was the norm. While many diets claimed to be the cure for getting rid of excess body weight, inevitably, they would work for some, but fail for most. Clearly, a one-size-fits-all approach was not the answer. Trial and error took too long, and few had the time and energy (and money) to stick with it. It was obvious that different foods had different effects within the body, not to mention different effects from body to body, but how? The science just couldn’t answer those questions yet.

In the early 2000s, things started to change. The human genome was sequenced, and for nearly the past two decades, scientists have been studying all aspects of the human genome, including the interactions between the foods we eat and our genes. This study of the interaction between food, genetics and health is termed “nutrigenomics.” Each of us has a unique genetic profile that defines who we are, so it makes sense that each of us can respond differently to the foods we eat. Nutrigenomics is an active area of research, but over the past few years, clinical research trials have shown that variations in several key genes can affect weight loss based on the amount of fat, carbohydrate, and protein in the diet. Finally, the science was starting to catch up.

In 2020, DietCypher was created to give people a fighting chance for weight loss success. At DietCypher, we look at someone’s unique genetic variations to predict which foods and diet plan will yield the greatest amount of weight loss. In short, we decipher your best path for diet-based weight loss.

Our Founder

During my childhood, I watched the people I love most struggle with failed weight loss and diet attempts, and I knew there had to be a better way. As a teen, I started learning everything I could about how the foods we eat affect our metabolism and what that means for weight loss. I wanted to understand what success could look like.

Today, I am a molecular nutrition scientist and registered dietitian with over 20 years experience researching the link between diet, nutrigenomics, metabolism and body weight. Science shows that many factors affect the interplay between food, metabolism and body weight, including our genes. I built DietCypher to help people find the most effective and efficient diet, based on their unique genetics.Quote MarkQuote Mark

Her roles have included designing, managing and leading nutrition research studies, and translating the science into meaningful applications for the biomedical and food industries. Dr. Palacios has authored numerous peer-reviewed publications and has designed and taught university courses focusing on molecular biology, physiology and nutrition science both in the US and abroad. She is a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the American Society for Nutrition. She earned a PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Notre Dame and completed her dietetics training and degree at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana.

Our Mission

DietCypher’s mission is to help people trying to lose weight maximize their chances with the best diet plan. DietCypher cuts through all the options out there and hones in on the diet that is predicted to give you the most success. With DietCypher, you truly get the most efficient and personalized weight loss diet.

Our Approach

Science And Innovation 1

Scientific & Innovative

DietCypher uses a two-tiered approach to predict the most successful weight loss diet: first, it looks at the variations in several genes scientifically-validated to be critical players in diet-based weight loss, and second, it uses a weighted algorithm to account for the influence of genetic variations.
