In 2020, Fellow One Research developed the first-ever genetic Scientific Body Type Quiz prototype based on genetics, vertebrae (posture), muscles/muscle mass, skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity), excess fat (white fat/yellow fat/being overweight/being obese), diet, exercise (cardio & resistance), metabolism (basal metabolic rate/BMR), Body Mass Index (BMI), and lifestyle (stress, sleep, etc.), no less. As a proof-of-concept, our Body Type Science research data includes diverse, worldwide participants. Total cost to date: $250,000.
In the past 2+ years of testing and gathering valuable scientific research data from diverse worldwide participants, we have proof of concept that the genetic Scientific Body Type Quiz prototype is viable. However, its copious limitations demand a full rebuild to greatly improve user experience and privacy, no less. Improving the overall functionality of the Quiz strengthens the quality, quantity, and accuracy of our data. One of the main goals is to improve the accuracy of the current inaccurate mainstream science body type standards — the Standard Body Type One (BT1), Standard BMI, and Standard BMR — to mitigate the worldwide health crisis including the obesity epidemic.
Our Core Scientific Team – Genetic Scientific Body Type Quiz Website Rebuild
Marc Nelson, Lead Scientific Researcher, SEO/Content, Manager/Overseer
M.D./Ph.D. Michael Sapko, Peer Review Editor & Data Scientist
Ph.D. William Wood, Peer Review Writer & Lead Data Scientist
Ph.D. Hongnian Huang, Math/Statistics/Algorithm Specialist & Data Scientist
Lead Full Stack PHP Programmer, Wyatt Thompson
Lead Front-End Programmer & UI/UX/Layout/Design, Jen McArdle
Along with no less than 5 peer-review papers, our team entails two (2) additional full-stack PHP programmers and a talented supporting cast to assist with educational outreach (social media, paid ads, press releases, etc.), graphics, writing, editing, legal, testing, and the like over 12 months. This includes equipment (hardware) and software upgrades for work and testing. The rebuild will also focus on upgrading the Scientific Weight Loss Diary & Science-Based Diet, Exercise, Lifestyle Commenting System to allow users to more easily, safely, and efficiently connect, communicate with, and manage other users.
We have tremendous interest from the public in terms of taking the Quiz. However, due to the current prototype limitations, most people are hesitant to take it because the required images are so difficult and cumbersome to upload and they are worried about not having the account functionality to better manage and control their privacy, at least.
Genetic Scientific Body Type Quiz – Body Type Science
- Every user will be able to sign up for a free account. The user will answer a few basic questions including height, weight, age, heaviest weight, most weight lost, skinny fat, and excess fat tendencies, no less.
- Users will upload their 3 required images for free, within flexible parameters. The user will pass through a user-friendly ‘wizard” which will side-by-side compare an approved example image to their uploaded images and require the user to manually cross-reference the lighting, angles, distance, clothing, hair, quality, and size, no less, to verify they are accurate and acceptable. The user will then be given a caveat that they will have to redo the images if not correct, so be sure to carefully use the cross-check to ensure accuracy. Once all is correct, they will save the image. The picture will then be uploaded to the Image Management database and cropped as needed. Every image will be manually categorized (pre-ML/AI) and approved by our Admin. If the image is approved by Admin, an automated message will be sent to the user account inbox and the image will be saved in their account. If it is rejected, an automatic message will be sent informing the user to retake the image. Once all three images are approved, the user data is processed and a free initial, unofficial genetic scientific body type ID is given.
- The user is then encouraged to take the full genetic Scientific Body Type Quiz to officially learn their genetic scientific body type Identification (ID) including the science-based diet, exercise, lifestyle, metabolism/BMR, BMi, and comprehensive health scores using proprietary algorithms.
- The User will be able to individually retake the diet, exercise, lifestyle, metabolism/BMR, BMI health scores (as they may change their specific routines and want to know how it affects their health).
