Metabolic Typing is not a diet, but a set of skills

REAL Metabolic Typing is about developing a set of skillsAs you begin your Metabolic Typing plan, keep in mind that Metabolic Typing is not a “eat this/don’t eat this” diet like most other diet plans. Instead, Metabolic Typing is about developing skills. We are trying to get YOU to be able to determine what’s right for you – not because someone has told you – but because you’ve tested and experienced it for yourself!

So as you begin your diet plan, don’t think about your diet in terms of “rules” and “principles”. Instead of these rules and principles, START thinking in terms of watching how food affects you and monitoring body signals. Or another way to put this is to stop thinking about diet with your head, and start experiencing diet with your body.

To do this, we provide the Diet Check Record sheet and Diet Symptom Journal. They are the heart of this program, and they teach you how to monitor your physical, mental, and emotional reactions to the food you eat. You need to fill these out consistently, and over time you’ll find whether YOU should eat a little or a lot of veggies, a little or a lot of fruit, what proteins work best, etc.

Of course, we know based on your Metabolic Type, what foods are best and which ones to avoid, so you should follow these guidelines in the food chart. But the goal here is to find out what works best for YOU! Not what works for the “average person” or for “most people”. Also, realize that as you balance your bio-chemistry, your food nutrient ratios may change.

That’s why we teach you how to change your ratios, as your nutrition improves. It’s also why we provide a second test part way through the program. This helps you adjust to your new levels of health, weight, energy, and digestion as you go through the plan.

Now this takes time. But over the months as you are working through the program, you’ll easily and quickly know your dietary needs, just by monitoring your body signals.

    Hi Carol

    I am sure you are right about foods making you feel good or bad but at the moment my funds are limited but will be interested when that changes.

    thanks for the tidbits of info coming my way


  2. Hi Carole,

    I recently acquired a copy of ‘Eat Right For Your Type’, bought for me by a dear friend. I intend to use the information to help me rid myself of MS symptoms. Viewing your Typing Plan it seems this plan would most definitely consolidate the information in the book and therefore be beneficial for me. Is there anyway of purchasing the eating plan/guide by itself?

    Like the previous person who left her comment, finance is very low for me at present, but that situation will not be permanent .Any by the way I wouldn’t mind gaining a few pounds either!

    Hi Yeshimabett -

    I too tried to follow the Eat Right For Your Type “blood type” diet many years ago. Unfortunately, the diet it forced onto me was exactly wrong for my metabolic type.

    The blood type diet is fairly simplistic, with just a few types. Metabolic typing has 24 types. We consider blood type as a factor in determining your metabolic type, but it’s not the only factor we use.

    So our planning guides won’t help you if you are starting off on the wrong foot to begin with!

    But they will help you and will be included when you order your custom nutrition profile and nutrition plan. We also include detailed videos and checklists to help you use these sheets and your food chart.

    I am responding to your email. It is very interisting and I have been reading it and thinking about it. I can’t start it financually though. The problem I have now is I am 40 and every thing has changed so I don’t know what to do. Know matter what I eat it seems like I continuely gain weight. I don’t know how to take care of it. What I normally eat is fruits, veggies, rice, and fish. Would you be able to give me some advise please?

    Hi Carol -

    Thank you for your email.

    As you know, our approach to nutrition is customized to each person. One-size-fits-all answers for nutrition do not work.

    So the only way I could answer your questions is if you completed our nutrition profile. Then I could give you answers that fit your unique metabolic type.
