The Metabolic Type Self-Test

One possible way of getting off that proverbial diet roller coaster ride is discovering a diet solution that might work with your unique body chemistry. Nationwide, clinicians and nutritionists find metabolic testing a smart approach, even though sufficient scientific study has yet to confirm or refute its concept.

The concept behind metabolic typing is that no singular diet or nutrient works the same for everyone. In fact, it could actually evoke a completely different biochemical effect on each individual.

Supporters of metabolic typing believe it’s imperative to discover if you are a carbo type (tends to be a slow oxidizer), protein type (tends to be a fast oxidizer) or mixed type (somewhere in between). According to them,¬†adjusting your diet accordingly could result in a slew of health benefits, from balanced blood sugar levels and improved satiety to returned energy and mental clarity.
