Are you confused about nutrition?
Do you read conflicting reports on nutrition and wonder which is true?
Do you hear that one minute a diet high in protein is good for you and the next that you should actually eat a diet high in carbohydrates?
Do you have a friend or family member who has successfully tried a diet, but when you tried the exact same diet, it didn’t work?
Do you wonder why the Zone diet and the Atkins diet increase energy in some people and help them to loose weight and others who try them, put on weight?
Do you eat the finest organic foods, take the best supplements, drink plenty of water, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, but still feel terrible?
However, you can now find out the diet that is correct for your individual needs, through a process called Metabolic Typing.
Metabolic Typing is the most advanced nutrition system in the world, as it is the only one that effectively and accurately classifies the differences between people.
Anyone can use metabolic typing to customise their diet to meet their body’s unique individual needs.
Metabolic Typing is based on the idea that there is no single, universal diet that is right for everyone. We are all unique, so why would we think that there is a single diet that works for us all? If there was such a diet that worked for everyone, then it would have been discovered a long time ago.
Metabolic typing is all about matching your diet to your own unique needs. These needs are determined by the way that some of your regulatory control systems operate. Metabolic typing recognises that there are ten fundamental control systems within the human body. These regulatory control systems determine how efficiently your body works and the way chemical reactions occur within your body.
Metabolic typing tells you exactly how these systems work within your own body and what you need to do in terms of your diet and lifestyle in order for them to work efficiently. For example finding out how your Autonomic nervous System (master regulator of metabolism) works, and your Oxidation system (the rate at which your body converts foods and nutrients into energy) works, tells you what kind of proteins, fats and carbohydrates you need and also in what ratios you need them.
To achieve and maintain true health, all the control systems must be brought into balance though your diet and lifestyle. Failure to do this leads to a faulty metabolism within the cells, which is the cause of many health complaints. Being overweight is a sign of an unbalanced metabolism and many degenerative diseases, such as cancer are also linked to an unbalanced metabolism.
Discovering your metabolic type is the single biggest health measure you can take and the most effective way to lose weight. Metabolic typing answers the foundational questions of nutrition by telling you:
Discovering your metabolic type through the metabolic typing test will enable me to give you a diet plan of the foods and nutrients you require to lose weight, increase your energy and improve your health. I will then coach you so you can tune into your body to find out exactly which foods are best for you from your diet plan.
Every single person has their own unique and specific ideal fuel mix. This is the exact amount of food that allows your body to effectively utilise and produce energy. When you eat the correct foods in the correct ratios of protein, carbohydrate and fat you will experience a sense of high energy and mental focus whilst avoiding frequent hunger, food cravings and energy drops.
To find out the correct amount of food you should eat, I will coach you to be able to tune into your own body, so you can read your body’s signs. The signs I will coach you to read are your body’s signs when you eat the correct amount of foods and your body’s signs when you eat the wrong amount of foods. Through learning to tune into your own body you will find out the exact amounts you should eat and what you should eat for each meal.
The old saying “one mans food is another mans poison” is literally true. There are foods that are unhealthy for all of us, but there are some foods that are healthy for some of us, but not healthy for others. The health benefits of any food are dependent upon the stimulatory or inhibitory effects on the biochemistry of any individual; this is known as an individual’s metabolic type.
Different foods have the power to strengthen or weaken metabolic imbalances, so you need to know which foods will improve how you feel, and which will make you feel worse. Metabolic typing will tell you which foods if eaten will make you feel better and which foods you should avoid, as if eaten, they will make you feel worse.
Metabolic typing will also tell you if you have any food sensitivities or intolerances. It is essential any food sensitivities or intolerances are addressed within your diet. Eating foods that your body has trouble processing, can make weight loss impossible and cause a number of unwanted health symptoms. Food intolerance’s are very common and undermine all efforts to be healthy.You can find out which foods you are intolerant to through a patented blood test known as the mediator release test (MRT). This gold standard blood test will test for food allergies, intolerances and sensitivities to 120 common foods. The MRT is essential if you have health issues as most health problems can be directly linked to allergic reactions, intolerances and sensitivities to food. Avoiding foods you are intolerant to is one of the biggest steps you can take in avoiding degenerative disease.
Metabolic typing also looks at the pattern of where you store fat on your body, to tell you which foods to avoid to help with weight loss. I am sure you have noticed how some people store fat all over their body while others gain fat just on their stomach. Where you store fat helps determine which endocrine gland is dominant in your body. The endocrine glands are stimulated by certain foods and when stimulated for a prolonged period, they lead to storing fat in a particular area of your body. Avoiding these foods that stimulate your dominant gland will help you to loose weight as well as help you to improve your health.
The metabolic typing research not only covers what you should eat, how much you should eat and what not to eat, it also covers other nutritional issues, as well as your lifestyle. This includes food quality, supplements, cooking techniques, as well as environmental influences such as sleep, sun, and toxins. Following these guidelines as well allows you to further safeguard your health and optimise your body fat levels.
We are all different, which is why you need to know your own individual metabolic type. Externally, we have different hair and skin colours, different bone structures, builds and personalities. Internally, we are all different too. This means we all process and use foods and nutrients differently.
To ensure you lead a healthy lifestyle, you must find out your metabolic type, so you know exactly what your own body needs in order to be healthy. Eating a diet that works for someone else may be the opposite diet to what you need, so finding out your metabolic type will ensure you eat the correct foods and intake the exact amount of nutrients your body needs for optimum health.
You really don’t need to understand all of the science behind metabolic typing in order to reap the health benefits for yourself. These benefits include
All you need to do is find out your metabolic type and follow the guidelines as closely as possible.
Make no mistake about it food is the most powerful “drug” on this earth. You eat it several times a day, every day of your life. Your food can be your medicine or your poison. It has the power to heal. But it also has the power to make you ill if you eat foods that are wrong for you. To ensure the food you eat is your medicine rather than your poison you must find out your metabolic type.
At Newcastle Personal Training we offer Metabolic Typing in a variety of formats. Some people may only need to find out their Metabolic Type and then they are ok to go on their own, some may need a lot of help, guidance and support and others may find it more beneficial to be in a group situation to help keep them motivated. Please take a look at the options below to see which option is the most suitable for you.
