The purpose of this study was to determine if disclosing FTO risk had an impact on change in PA following a 6-month intervention. The single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs9939609 in the FTO gene was genotyped in 1279 participants of the Food4Me study, a four-arm, Web-based randomized controlled trial (RCT) in 7 European countries…
