What is Metabolic Typing
Metabolic Typing is a testing tool used to determine the eating and supplement program unique to a specific individual. The metabolic typing diet test results are based on how a person processes nutrients into the biochemical tools, and which structures the body needs to maintain optimal health.
Why use a Metabolic Typing Diet?
Poor diet and lack of proper dietary supplements can be a cause of numerous illnesses, and a diet plan that's not right for your individual needs can easily fail, and can even do more harm than good. A metabolic typing diet report will provide a listing of specific products and supplements your body needs to perform at its best. Different metabolic body types need different approaches, and the metabolic typing diet provides just that.
How is this different from a free metabolic type test?
With a free metabolic type test, you answer about 10 questions and get a short response of what type you are.
This, on the other hand, is a comprehensive metabolic typing test, which touches on numerous important issues. More importantly, your report will be extensive and comprehensive. Most importantly, you'll have a trained and certified metabolic advisor to help you. Here's a sample metabolic typing report with some of the other benefits you will receive from your metabolic typing test.
Metabolic Typing Report Example
This graph reflects relationships between various factors controlling your metabolism, expressing degrees of metabolic imbalance.
Your Metabolic Type is not necessarily indicated by the highest score in the graph.
Your Metabolic Type has been determined as Fast Oxidation Dominant
While everyone's metabolism is regulated by a wide variety of mechanisms, your test results indicate that your metabolism is being controlled mostly through a system known as cellular oxidation - the "burning" of nutrients inside cells to create energy.
While certain foods and nutrients tend to increase the oxidation rate, other foods and nutrients decrease the oxidation rate. Fast Oxidizers (also known as Protein Types) burn carbohydrates too quickly and need to decrease their rate of cellular oxidation to achieve better metabolic balance and thereby optimize energy production.
Fast Oxidizers in general need a lower carbohydrate intake, and a higher fat and protein intake, relatively speaking, as compared to other metabolic types. They are more capable of being meat eaters than other Metabolic Types. They do poorly on vegetarian and high carbohydrate diets, which increase even further their already too overly fast oxidation rate, and which may result in weight gain, mood changes, fatigue, increase in appetite, and food cravings, especially for sweets or caffeine.
