Get Specific, Eat Correctly for Your Metabolic Type
Metabolic Typing is a method or process that provides you with all the knowledge and strategies required to improve health and subsequently normalise weight, revitalise the body, facilitate optimal energy production and take all the guesswork out of dieting. Also referred to as the “No-Diet Diet” Metabolic Typing allows you to find whats right for you by identifying your genetically based nutrition and diet requirements. The old adage “one man’s food is another man’s poison” is literally true. We are all as unique as our fingerprints so why would we think that there is a single diet that works for us all? If such a diet worked, then wouldn’t it have been discovered a long time ago ?
So how do we achieve robust health and maintain our birthright to be healthy ? Its becoming more and more difficult what with all the contradicting advice out there today. Where to start ? Diet and exercise right ? But there’s all those different opinions being yelled at you, which are we to believe ? Low carbs ? Or low fat ? No red meat ? Cut the calories ? Take more calcium ? Get more sun ? But doesn’t sun give you cancer ? Take this new all-natural weight loss pill ? It goes on… The crazy thing is that all these opinions are so contradictory that if you try and follow every single one of them, you’ll
find you shouldn’t actually eat anything at all ! So why is it that any one of those diet recommendations may have worked for your friend but never worked for you ? How can this be possible ? Are all those diets wrong ? Or are all those diets right, but just not for everyone ?
The fact is that any one food or diet can make one person improve; have more energy, be healthier and lose weight, whereas the same food or diet can have little or no affect on another person and often even make a third person worse. At the end of the day, we’re all biochemically unique, metabolically individual and have differing nutritional needs. This concept is the secret to Metabolic Typing or biochemical individuality. And its roots are found at the genetic level. Each person is born with a genetic requirement for the amounts and types of protein, fat, carbohydrate and other nutrients that they need to be healthy.
To illustrate this, take a step back in time to when travel was not widely available. People lived their whole lives in their place of birth and also married and procreated there. This is significant because these people ate only the foods that were available specific to their geography, generation after generation, and their genetics adapted to this. For example, indiginous eskimos ate diets rich in protein and fat because vegetation was scarce. In contrast, in tropical regions like in Eastern India, where vegetation flourished, carbohydrates like fruits and vegetables were consumed in much higher quantities than animal fats and proteins. All of these people were very healthy on very different diets. However, nowadays, as a result of travel and development in transportation around the globe, we’re all mixed up and have no idea where we came from and therefore what we should be eating.
Metabolic Typing is based on over 30 years of research, development and clinical experience, producing an advanced testing method to help us determine which metabolic type we express genetically or if we possibly express a mixed type ? However its more than just a test, it’s a process that gradually builds and restores health and potentially help to fight or even reverse disease pathways. You’ll be provided with all the tools necessary to guide you on your way towards better health and well being, not just for the duration of the programme but for a lifetime. Health can come easily and is a completely natural phenomenon. It is normal to be healthy and have energy, its built into our genetic code. Our bodies at a cellular level are incredibly intelligent, more so than the fastest, most complex computer in existence. Science still has not been able to fully understand all of its complexities. But your body knows exactly how to be healthy. It just needs the right resources. You can discover exactly
what it is that your body needs to be healthy. Do you need to eat more of the proteins and fats like the eskimos or do you need more of the carbs like fruits and vegetables like the Indians ? Or somewhere inbetween ?
You will learn how to listen to your body and how to interpret your body’s language, so you can give your body exactly what it requires and what it is asking for. When given what it needs, your body will go through a process of balancing itself. As your body balances you can experience all sorts of short and long term benefits such as natural weight loss without dieting or restricting calories, prevention or reversal of chronic or degenerative health disorders, even slowing of the ageing process !
The human body knows exactly how to balance itself and how to be healthy. Every cell in your body knows exactly what to do and how to do it perfectly. There is a programme for health that is designed and programmed into every cell in our bodies and it comes from your DNA. Genetics are not responsible for our high chances of cancer, diabetes and all those other health problems. We can control our health. Genetics just load the gun. Our diet, lifestyle and environment pulls the trigger. In other words, nutrition plays a major role in your DNA’s expression of health or disease. Nutrition that meets your genetic needs sets the stage for your healths full potential. It is not the only component for building health but it is the base and foundation on which to lay the other layers.
True health is not simply the absence of symptoms. Rather it provides steady lasting energy, balanced emotions and a radiant sense of well-being. Metabolic Typing is the foundation to building health and maintaining it for a lifetime. This will eliminate symptoms including weight issues. Give a man a fish and feed him for a day, but teach a man to fish and you’ll feed him for a lifetime ! Health is our birthright and we’re all capable of true health.
The health benefits of any food are dependent upon the stimulatory, or inhibitory effects on the biochemistry of any individual, or “metabolic type” meaning 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. To achieve optimal health, you must determine what is right for you and this is exactly what Metabolic Typing allows you to do.
At Bodyguards, using the Metabolic Typing assessment method and process we can assess and identify your ‘type’ and then provide food lists based on which nutrients you need, what macronutrient ratios of protein, fats and carbs you require, shopping lists, meal suggestions, cooking guidelines, suggested supplements and a whole load of information which educates you about how it works, why it works and what is right for you ! You too can discover exactly what foods will improve and balance your health, burn excess body fat, build lean muscle, increase metabolism, optimise physical energy production, eliminate cravings, eliminate hunger between meals, eradicate mood swings and balance emotions, improve metal clarity and ability to concentrate and have a good long-lasting, normal sense of vitality and well-being.
