Metabolic Typing

It is more important to know what kind of patient has a disease than what kind of disease a patient has.”
– Hippocrates, Greek physician of the 4th century B.C.


Tired of jumping on the diet-fad bandwagon when what you really want to know is which diet is really right for you? Ever wondered why one diet works for one person and causes health problems for another? Well, you’ve come to the right place to answer those questions!

Metabolic typing–based on 30 years of research–will customize a diet for your individual biochemistry. When you are eating right for your metabolic type you will:

* Feel satisfied, energetic and clear-headed after eating
* Have no cravings
* Reach your optimum weight
* Support your body’s natural healing process

Today there is intense controversy over what constitutes a healthy diet. Some experts advocate a low-fat, low-protein, high-carbohydrate diet to combat degenerative diseases like arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure and obesity. Others claim just the opposite, that a high-protein, high-fat and low-carbohydrate diet is the only reliable way to prevent heart disease and obesity. And still others advocate a mix of 40 percent protein, 30 percent fat and 30 percent carbohydrates for optimal health. Which approach is best? It depends on your metabolic type.

By using metabolic typing you will determine your ideal ratio of protein, fat and carbohydrates and which specific foods balance or imbalance your metabolism and energy.

How Does Metabolic Typing Work?

Metabolic typing is based on the biochemical individuality of each person. To understand why metabolic typing works one must look at the two principles of evolution and adaptation. Over a period of many thousands of years our ancestors developed individualized dietary needs in response to many unique aspects of their habitats–geographic, location, climate, naturally occurring vegetation and food supply. For example, people from cold harsh northern regions of the world typically require meat and fat to sustain themselves, while people from tropical regions generally developed metabolic requirements for much lighter foods such as fruits, grains and vegetables.

A person’s current individual environment, stresses, lifestyle and stage of life are also important factors in determining one’s metabolic type as well as cultural and ethnic heritage.
