Kick Off Your Genetic Journey with a Nutrition Plan!

AGS is excited to introduce a series of blogs teaching you how to eat each meal according to your Genetic Dietary Profile / pie chart / wheel. We also fondly refer to this as 'Matching your meal to your macro wheel'. 


We are all uniquely created. Imagine if we could obtain an Owners Manual for our individual bodies to run frequent maintenance and troubleshooting exercises when something is wrong. It would make things so much easier to adjust a few settings, push a few buttons, or just reboot our system to reset things! Unfortunately, it is not that simple. But, if you have your AGS Health & Wellness Genetic Report, you have the next best thing.

Surviving Finals Week: How to Stay Healthy During Finals - Part 2

[fa icon="calendar'] Dec 14, 2017 10:53:47 AM / by Catherine Levesque posted in Diet & Eating, Healthy eating 4 min read time

We’re back, with 3 more tips to help college and graduate students stay healthy as you tackle final exams!


1) You Still Need Water In The Winter

When temperatures dip down below zero and the sun starts to set at 4:00 pm, you’re way less likely to drink all the water your body needs. But just because it isn’t hot out, doesn’t mean you can fall short on H2O consumption, especially during finals season. Dehydration can lead to symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, and exhaustion - all of which can hinder your ability to study and test well. In fact, according to Mayo Clinic, “Even mild dehydration can drain your energy and make you tired.” One trick is to place a full cup of water by your bed before you sleep, and to chug it as soon as you wake up. On top of that, be sure to keep a water bottle with you throughout the day and set a goal to refill it every few hours (setting a timer on your phone can help you remember!).
