About the Ideal Weight Programme
Are you eating well and exercising but still not experiencing the desired results? Perhaps you would like to achieve your ideal weight but previous diets haven’t worked and you aren’t sure why.
Our Ideal Weight Programme combines IgG antibody testing of 158 foods and drinks with tailored advice and support from our BANT* registered Nutritional Therapists. By personalising the low Glycemic Index* diet plan to reflect your specific combination of trigger foods, our programme will help you identify alternatives that should optimise your diet and give you a better chance of achieving your ideal weight.
*Foods and drinks that have a low GI make us feel satisfied for longer and less hungry, they are more nutritionally balanced. Low GI diets have been proven to break the vicious circle that other diets produce of losing weight and then putting it all back on.

Very good have lost 5kgs in 2 months, thank you!
From YorkTest, I discovered that I am intolerant to yeast. A discovery that has profoundly altered my life in a positive way. Six weeks ago I spoke with the YorkTest nutritionist about the foods I should be avoiding. Yeast is in a lot of foods, I have come to find out. I have avoided yeast entirely for the past six weeks. My digestive problems have disappeared. I wake up each morning feeling refreshed. My brain fog has diminished dramatically. My acne has cleared up. I have lost four inches off of my waist. YorkTest Results (via e-mail on January 24, 2016): 222 pounds (100kg) Today (March 24, 2016): 195 pounds (88kg) All my life I thought I was lactose intolerant. This test opened my eyes to my very unique food intolerances that I had not considered before. I have since seen a gastroenterologist (GI) & allergist. My GI confirmed that I had no true health problems that would account for my rapid weight loss. My allergist confirmed YorkTest's findings, as it was discovered that I am allergic to a myriad of common seasonal allergens. Monilia stood out as something I had not known I am allergic to. Monilia allergies and yeast intolerances are both known as "Candida" As a 20 year old male, I would have never suspected yeast to be my underlying health concern. I cannot express my gratitude enough to YorkTest for shining a light on an unknown food intolerance that was hindering my health in a profound way. The FoodScan is a bit on the expensive side in comparison to the low deductible I pay under Obamacare. The 'Ideal Weight Programme' cost more than my total medical bills to see an allergist and undergo a colonoscopy. Though without this expensive test I would have remained oblivious to my intolerances.
I have only positive things to say about the services that YorkTest Labs provides. The staff has been very helpful in answering my many questions. The process to get started was very easy. I'm currently in my 7th week of my 1st 13 week plan. I've reduced or eliminated the recommended foods from my diet per the discussion with the Dietitian. To this point, I have lost 10 pounds. I've been able to stop taking an RX drug that I have been on for the past 2 years. My energy levels have been getting better each week. Overall I feel healthier than I've felt in a long time. I look forward to continuing the program and my healthier weight loss.
So glad I had the test and found out my trigger foods. Daunting at first and life changing in terms of the way I think, cook and eat but was feeling the benefits after just a couple of days and the weight is steadily coming off which is motivation in itself. We get lazy in life in more ways than one and York Test has proved a revelation for me.Food is so much healthier and tastes so much better and I don't feel like I am dieting ... it's just a way of life!Would highly recommend.

Raised levels of food-specific IgG antibodies within your blood indicate that an IgG antibody reaction to a particular food or foods has occurred. If you have already taken the decision to eliminate a particular food or foods from your diet they may not show up a reaction on your results. If you know of foods that cause you to feel unwell, do not start eating them; we cannot encourage you to eat a food or foods which you already know are a problem to you.
