Based off of your genetic makeup, companies like Muhdo while suggest a dietary plan that would best fit the results. This information should be taken with a grain of salt. Depending on what your overarching health or fitness goals are, the dietary suggestions from Mudho might not equal what it is you are trying to achieve.
