Metabolic Typing

What does everyone think of this?

I know we are all different and there is no one diet that works for all. This seems to recognize this fact but I am always thrown when they try to make it too technical.

Anyone familiar with it?

Yes! Are you thinking of giving it a go? I have been using MT for around 2 months now and I love it and feel fantastic.

Perhaps this link will help explain the basics. www.metabolictypingdiet.com/index2.html A friend of mine introduced me to the ideas a few months back (he’s an MT advisor).

Just to be clear, it’s not a “diet”, as in specifically to lose weight. It’s more of an overall health focus.

I am not sure but I want to learn more. I don’t buy into any one fixed diet plan that tells you exactly how to eat and doesn’t rely on feedback.

There are definite aspects of this I find appealing but some of the jargon is a bit over my head.

There’s quite a bit on the Q&A over on the Elite site.
