Metabolic Typing Diet

Eat right for your metabolism and lose weight.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Metabolic Typing Diet is a specific diet that is tailored to your metabolism and promises to deliver permanent weight loss as well as improved health. Rather than trying diet after diet, the Metabolic Typing Diet claims to custom-tailor an eating plan for you based upon how you answer a 30-minute autobiographical questionnaire. The test can either be done online for a fee or taken within the book The Metabolic Typing Diet.

Once the survey is completed, you’ll receive a complete metabolic report, a personalized meal plan, an individualized supplement list, and guidelines on shopping, eating and cooking appropriately. The Metabolic Typing Diet was written by William L. Wolcott, the world's leading authority on Metabolic Typing.

DIET and NUTRITION

There are three metabolic diet categories that comprise the Metabolic Typing Diet: The Protein Type, the Carbo Type or the Mixed Type. These general categories correspond to a specific diet, but it is important to remember that these general categories are just the staring points for eating right for your metabolic type.

  • Protein Types should eat a diet low in carbohydrates and high in proteins, fats and oils, particularly red and organ meats.

  • Carbo Types should eat a diet high in carbohydrates and low in protein, fat and oils.

  • Mixed Types should eat a combination proteins, fats and carbs in equal amounts.

EXERCISE

There are no specific exercise guidelines.

CONCLUSION

The Metabolic Typing Diet is an eating plan that is based on the 1930s work of Dr. Weston Price, who noticed that certain styles of eating leave some people healthy and others prone to illness and obesity. Today, his theory has been refined and researched and is the basis of The Metabolic Typing Diet by William Wolcott.

The Metabolic Typing Diet classifies people into three general categories: protein, carb or a combination of the two. But science has yet to fully embrace the philosophy of The Metabolic Typing Diet, particularly since it advocates the consumption of saturated fats like animal meat, fats and oils.

If you are interested in finding out what your metabolic type is, you can either purchase the book or take the questionnaire online.
