Optimize your diet plan with Metabolic Typing

May 2012

close up JimWhy is it that one diet works wonders for one person and doesn't for another? Or your friend goes on a raw food cleanse and feels fantastic whereas another person feels miserable (and it's not just a "cleansing reaction")? 
Have you noticed how your dietary needs can change with the season or time in your life? The reason is that each person's biochemistry is unique and has unique food and macro-nutrient ratio (protein/fat/carbohydrate) requirements. 

Around the year 2000 I started working with a system called metabolic typing to help my clients identify the best foods and macro-nutrient ratios to optimize their health. I have yet to find a more effective system for customizing dietary programs for my clients.  
Some of the common benefits you'll experience when you are on your correct metabolic type diet plan include:
  • Consistent balanced energy
  • Clear thinking and ability to concentrate 
  • Improved memory and cognitive function
  • Reaching and maintaining your optimum weight
  • Faster recovery from illness and injury

In the video below I give an overview of Metabolic tying and how it can help you reach optimum health.

More information on Metabolic typing
I've found that when my clients follow their metabolic typing program 90% or more of the time they see dramatic improvements in their health. What has been missing in the MT program until recently; however, is an efficient educational support program. Now there is a system for both practitioners and students to use which gives us the tools to keep you on track and provide me with the feedback I need to more effectively coach you.

"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.

Metabolic Types originate from human evolution and adaptation
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.
