The testing process spans about 2.5 hours (which includes some in-between time where you’re free to kick back and relax) and is completed in the comfort of your home.
You’ll need to fast for 10 hours before the test. Fasting includes no food or beverages, with the exception of plain water, which is encouraged.
Here’s what you’ll do:
- Measure your core (measured directly around your navel) using the provided tape measure
- Collect three DNA samples (unless you purchase the DNA import option) by swabbing the inside of your cheeks for approximately 1 minute each
- Perform the first blood sample by pricking your finger to gather approximately 4-5 large drops of blood, to measure your fasting levels
- Drink the Habit Challenge™ Shake within 5 minutes
- Wait 30 minutes to perform the second blood sample
- Wait an additional 90 minutes to perform the 3rd blood sample
- Weigh yourself on a scale
- Answer an online questionnaire to provide us some additional information about yourself
- Ship your completed samples using the enclosed prepaid shipping envelope included in your kit
