Metabolic Typing

What is Metabolic Typing?

Metabolic typing is the most effective system for weight loss and disease prevention.  This is a thoroughly researched and proven methodology that involves finding the right balance of food for your body.  This is not a commercialized product but a scientifically proven fact that is simple to learn and to follow.  Many of the fad diets are based in part on Metabolic Typing but have been spun into marketing programs to catch your interest and your dollars.

Your Metabolism

In simple terms, your metabolism is how many calories your body needs to maintain itself. Your metabolism breaks down the food you eat and uses the calories for energy or stores them as fat.

Everyone metabolizes food differently. What gives you energy may cause bloating in someone else and weight gain in another.  Knowing your metabolic type and eating accordingly will help with fatigue, bloating, moodiness, and especially weight loss.  Metabolic typing can help you choose the right foods, in the right balance, for you.  This is not a diet; this is about making the right choices based on the way that your body processes different types of food, to achieve your optimal balance.

History of Metabolic Typing

Metabolic typing was developed in the 1970’s by the US Government’s Senate Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs, lead by the top scientists at the time.  Their results spurred the health movement that we are still seeing today – health stores in malls, gyms on every corner, group exercise classes, diets with the miracle answer to weight loss and “health oriented” food.

What is YOUR Metabolic Type?

Your metabolic type will be determined by a simple questionnaire. If your eating habits are out of sync with your metabolic type, making  the right dietary changes will help you reach your goal more quickly and with less effort.
