What is PathwayFIT®?
PathwayFIT® is a non-invasive genetic test which uses your saliva to analyze over 80 genetic markers known to impact metabolism, exercise and energy use within the human body.
How does it work?
A genetics testing kit is mailed to your address. You provide a saliva sample and mail it to the CLIA and CAP accredited laboratory per the instructions provided. A personalized analytic report typically arrives within two to three weeks.
What does it tell me?
PathwayFit® analyzes your DNA to give you a better understanding of how your body works. The test helps more accurately identify your needs, such as:
- Eating Behavior
- Food Reactions
- Response to Exercise
- Body and Weight
With PathwayFit®, you harness the power of your genetics to:
- Promote Behavioral Changes with Your Personalized Genetic Nutrition and Fitness Profile
- Gain Insight into Your Health and Wellness
- Make Proactive Decisions Regarding Diet, Exercise & Lifestyle
What do I do with the results?
The information from your PathwayFIT® report can be used to make behavioral changes, gain insight into your health and make informed decisions regarding your diet, exercises, and overall lifestyle. PathwayFIT® can help empower your physician to help you make better health choices.
With actionable recommendations included with your results, and access to our registered dietitians, you will have a foundation for change, as opposed to traditional lab results that don’t provide you with any next steps.
Are the results accurate?
"There's no doubt that genetics, the DNA that we inherit from our parents, affects how much we weigh; maybe up to 60%... There's also no doubt that the environment we live in affects how much we weigh. There's no nature vs. nurture. There's nature and nurture."

Scientific evidence supports the results and findings, and Pathway Scientists and consultations reviewed ~35,000 peer-reviewed human scientific publications for validation of FIT test. A Scientific Board from leading institutions such as Harvard, Berkeley, Salk Institute, Stanford, Scripps Clinic, Pennington Biomedical, UCLS, and UCSD reviewed all content described in FIT.
