Did you know that everyone has a unique metabolic type? Ground-breaking research shows that just as you’re born with a specific blood or body type, you’re also blessed with a specific metabolic type. This means the same foods that keep you lean and beautiful could make someone else gain weight and look puffy and tired.
Not only is food powerful medicine that can heal the body, it can also accelerate your metabolism and help you lose weight faster. But here’s the key: The food you choose must be dictated by your own unique metabolic type.
There are three general metabolic types:
- Carbo Type
- Protein Type
- Mixed Type
Each requires a unique meal breakdown based on different amounts of protein, fats and carbs.
Discover your metabolic type with Metabolic Typing Test and learn what you should be eating to feel full, shed those stubborn pounds and feel energized.
Once you have completed this test come back and read about each type below and start eating based on your unique Metabolic Type.
If you’re a Protein Type, you burn proteins and fats much more efficiently than you burn carbs. The salty, fatty food cravings you experience stem from your body’s need for protein. At mealtime, your plate should be comprised mainly of protein and breakdown as following:
- 50% protein
- 30% fats
- 20% carbohydrates
Choose lean cuts of protein that are dark in color such as beef, dark meat chicken or turkey, and fish such as tuna or salmon.
If you’re Carbo Type you do best on a low-fat, relatively low-protein diet that includes mainly good carbs, plenty of fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. Your mealtime plate should contain:
- 70% carbs
- 20% protein
- 10% fats
Hurrah for Carbo Type! You get to eat mainly carb-based meals. However, you must focus on whole grains such as barley, brown rice, quinoa and starchy carbs like yams and sweet potatoes.
Be aware that you need low-protein as opposed to no-protein. Choose proteins that are light and lean: white-meat poultry, white fish, such as cod or sole, and plant-based proteins including lentils and chickpeas.
Mixed Type have the ability to metabolize proteins, fats and carbs equally, which is why you crave both salty and sweet foods. Your mealtime plate should be divided into thirds:
- 33% protein
- 33% fats
- 33% carbs
As a Mixed Type you’re allowed to put the most fats on your plate. Choose a mixture of full-fat foods such as cheese, yoghurt, olive oil, etc.
Mix and match dark and light proteins as well: light and dark meat poultry, beef, salmon, cod, kidney beans, lentils etc.
The last portion of your plate should contain good carbs, focus on whole grains such as barley, brown rice, quinoa and starchy carbs like yams and sweet potatoes. etc.
