What is metabolic typing?

Sunday, February 3rd, 2008

Metabolic typing means finding the right foods for a persons specific and individual type that will create health and balance in their body as well as promote weight loss. It’s nothing to do with the blood type diet but is much more specific and individualized. There are two sides to this: one is finding the right food for you and two establishing the right proportions of food that will lead you to optimum health.

In order to find out what’s the right food for the individual, a detailed questionnaire is filled out. A report is being sent to the advisor who will then go over the report with you and tell you which foods are right for your individual metabolic (genetic) type. Some people do well with lots of proteins and others do better with a higher proportion of carbs. People are very different and therefore they need different kinds of food in order to get the right fuel and stay healthy. That way the weight should also regulate itself naturally without the person having to go on a diet where they have to count calories or weigh the food.

The benefits of metabolic typing are that it will help control cravings, regulate hunger, give increased energy and a sense of well-being, improve concentration and eliminate mood swings plus you will know exactly which foods are good for you and which aren’t.

It’s first and foremost a health building program and by eating the right foods the body’s functions will be balanced and therefore create optimum health. Supplements specific to ones metabolic type will also be recommended to further help the body get into balance. The program is a process that will gradually produce the desired results over time.
