Changing Nutritional Needs
each have unique and individual nutritional needs. This is seen
by the way no two people get the same results when eating similar
diets. It is also shown by the fact some people are hungry all the
time while other people have no real interest in eating.
science of metabolic typing is the most effective nutrition system
in the world to determine the exact nutritional needs of any one
individual. The unique element of metabolic typing is that the system
allows for people to change in their nutritional needs during their
I have just had this happen to me. I had always been a fast oxidizer
metabolic type; this meant I processed carbohydrates too quickly.
It is characterized by the traits of strong hunger, the need to
pick at food often and the positive effect red meat has upon energy
levels. On re-testing I have now found myself to be a mixed oxidizer.
This means that my body is no longer processing carbohydrates too
quickly for its own good.
this means in real terms is that now I need to eat a totally different
set of foods. If I were to continue eating the old way I would experience
negative health symptoms. It was the experience of these that alerted
me to the fact I might have changed nutritionally.
is a checklist to ask yourself if your nutritional needs have changed
from some point in the past to where you are today.
Weight gain – Have you just started to put a few
pounds on over the weeks, even though you have not changed your
eating? This could be a sign that a change in nutritional needs
has resulted in your normal food not being so healthy for your body.
after eating – If you find that you are never satisfied
after eating with meals that used to work for you, then there is
a good chance you have changed.
in hunger – If you have suddenly lost your appetite
or are now eating every second minute and these changes remain over
a couple of weeks it would suggest something has altered in your
of health symptoms – If a health problem appears
for no reason then maybe you have new nutritional needs. It could
be that the symptom’s appearance is an accumulation of poor
nutrition over a period of time. Either way the key thing to do
is to get tested and discover exactly what you need to eat now.
you feel something has changed – sometimes you just
know that your body has changed even though you cannot pin point
why. These intuitions are most often correct as you know your body
better than anyone else.
you suspect that your needs have changed the only way to act is
by taking the metabolic
typing test to determine what foods you should and should not
be consuming within your diet.
