Metabolic typing is the science of personalized nutrition. It is a accurate system for determining which foods your body needs.
Discovering your metabolic type is the single biggest health measure you can take and the most effective way to lose weight. Metabolic typing answers the foundational questions of nutrition by telling you:
• What to eat
• How much to eat
• What foods to specifically avoid
• All other aspects of nutrition including supplements, food quality etc
To make these recommendations the science of metabolic typing has been rapidly developing from the pioneering work of many researchers throughout the last fifty years.
Metabolic typing recognizes that there are ten fundamental control systems within the human body. Each of these systems determines the way the chemical reactions occur within your body.
To achieve and maintain true health the control systems must be brought into balance. Failure to do this leads to faulty metabolism within the cells which is the cause of health complaints. Being overweight is a sign of faulty metabolism.
Answering the big questions in nutrition, metabolic typing determines:
What to eat?
It is the influence of the main two control systems that determines which foods your body needs. All my clients undergo a metabolic typing test which reveals where their body lies upon these two systems. This directs us to the metabolic typing diet plan that will give you the exact foods and nutrients you require to lose weight, improve energy and health.
How much to eat?
We all have a unique and specific ideal fuel mix. This is the amount of food that allows the body to effectively utilize and produce energy.
When you eat the right foods in the right ratios of protein, carbohydrate and fat you will experience a sense of high energy and mental focus while avoiding food cravings, energy drops or frequent hunger.
To discover the right amounts of food I coach my clients to tune into their bodies and find the answer out for themselves. Metabolic typing uses the ideal fuel mix and body language signals as a key criteria for success along with eating the right foods for your body. (As defined by your metabolic type).
What foods should I specifically avoid?
It is essential you ensure any food sensitivities or intolerances are addressed within your diet. Eating foods that your body has trouble processing can make weight loss impossible and cause a number of unwanted health symptoms. Food intolerance's are very common and undermine all efforts to be healthy.
The metabolic typing test also looks at the pattern of where you store fat on your body. The way you store fat has implications on weight loss and food cravings.
I am sure you have noticed how some people store fat all over their body, on their hands, face etc while others gain fat just on their stomach. There are other characteristic patterns to these and they represent the behaviour of your endocrine glands within your body. e.g. thyroid, adrenal etc.
The endocrine glands are stimulated by certain foods. When these foods are eaten in excess over a prolonged period they can exhaust your dominant gland. This can lead to low thyroid or adrenal fatigue and be the cause of unwanted fat storage and poor health.
Finally, metabolic typing allows you to use the influences of your blood type to avoid certain foods. There are certain foods that can interact with specific blood types to cause unwanted health complaints.
Please note that metabolic typing is far in advance of the well known eat right for your blood type book and is fundamentally different.
Other nutritional issues
The metabolic typing research has also covered the effects of the other issues surrounding nutrition and lifestyle. This includes food quality, supplements, cooking techniques and other factors such environmental influences. e.g. sleep , sun, toxins etc. This allows you to further safeguard your health and optimize your body fat levels.
Metabolic typing is the most advanced nutrition system in the world as it is the only one that effectively and accurately classifies the differences between people.
It provides an answer to what, how much and what not to eat. It is the most important and biggest health measure you can take and the fastest and most effective ways to lose weight.
