I'm not convinced that the DNA test is any more accurate than trial and error at this point.

For example, you may have the "high-carb" genes, but if you have diabetes, thyroid issues, autoimmune disease, PCOS, fibromyalgia, and/or other health issues that respond to carb-restriction, the low-carb or moderate-carb diet may still be more beneficial than a high-carb diet.

Until there's a diagnostic tool that can take all the variables into account (and we're not there yet, with the science) trial and error is still a better tool (and cheaper too).
