Confused by all the different diets out there?
By all the contradictions from one nutrition book to the next?
You are not the only one who feels confused....
Why do different experts recommend completely opposite diets?
Why do many of these different diets work well for some people but none work well for all people?
The reason for your confusion is simple. And so is the answer to these questions:
You are not the same as everyone else.
The same diet that works well for someone else may provide no help or even be harmful for you.
And the diet that works well for you may provide no help or even be harmful for someone else.
Because each of us is unique.
Each of us has a distinct Metabolic Type.
And the right diet for one Metabolic Type
is the wrong diet for another Metabolic Type.
Confused about how much protein to eat?
Or how much carbohydrate is best?
Or how much fat is optimum?
The correct types and amounts of each of these is determined by your unique metabolism.
Some people thrive on a low carbo diet with lots of protein and fat. Yet clearly others fare very poorly on such a diet. Meanwhile, some people thrive on a high carbo diet that is relatively low in fat and protein. And again, others do very poorly on such a diet.
The right diet for someone else is often the wrong diet for you.
Your unique metabolism determines the right diet for you.

There are numerous one size fits all diets out there today. Many will fit some people, but none will even work well for most people. Remember: the same shoe does not fit all feet! Or put another way, "One man's meat is another man's poison."
Roger Williams Ph.D. noted the following in his classic book Biochemical Individuality:
  • "It is not unusual to find a difference of one hundred times in requirements for a specific nutrient."
  • "Individuality pervades every part of the human body."
  • "Human beings are highly distinctive on a microscopic as well as a gross anatomical level, in the functioning of their organs, and in the composition of their body fluids."
  • "Inherited differences extend to the structure and metabolism of every cell, and determine the speed and efficiency with which cells perform their essential functions."
  • "Unbalanced or inadequate nutrition at the cellular level is a major cause of human disease."
  • "People have genetically determined and highly individualized nutritional requirements."
  • If “normal” is range for 95% of population, then “practically every human being is a deviate in some respects.”

William Wolcott and Trish Fahey note the following in their classic book The Metabolic Typing Diet:

  • A diet considered healthful in one part of the world is frequently disastrous for people elsewhere in the world.”
  • Heredity plays a major role in your dietary requirements.”
  • Your nutritional needs are highly unique.”
  • What works for one person may have no effect on another person, and may make a third person worse.”
  • We all need a full spectrum of nutrients. But different people have genetically programmed requirements for different amounts of various nutrients. It is these differing genetically based requirements that explain why a certain nutrient can cause one person to feel good, have no effect on another, and cause a third person to feel worse.”
  • "The body’s biochemical status cannot be effectively evaluated in absolute terms. Two people might have identical levels of nutrients in their tissues or cells, yet the very same nutrient balance that indicates good health in one metabolic type can indicate pathology in another metabolic type."

Fundamental Homeostatic Control Mechanisms
There are a number of fundamental homeostatic control mechanisms which together determine your Metabolic Type and subsequently your Metabolic Typing Diet. These include:
(1) AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM: Master regulator of metabolism
        AUTONOMIC TYPE: Parasympathetic vs Sympathetic
(2) CARBO-OXIDATIVE SYSTEM: Intracellular energy conversion
        OXIDATIVE TYPE: Fast Oxidation vs Slow Oxidation
(3) LIPO-OXIDATIVE PROCESSES: Intracellular oxygen metabolism
       CATABOLIC/ANABOLIC BALANCE: Catabolic vs Anabolic
(4) ELECTROLYTE/FLUID BALANCE: Regulates circulation and osmotic pressure
        Electrolyte Excess vs Electrolyte Deficiency
(5) ACID/ALKALINE BALANCE: Reflects homeostasis through pH
        Acid vs Alkaline
(6) PROSTAGLANDIN BALANCE: Regulates inflammatory and immune responses
        Series 1 + Series 3 PGs vs Series 2 Pgs
(7) ENDOCRINE TYPE: Influences food selection relative to weight control
        Pituitary vs Thyroid vs Adrenal vs Gonad
(8) BLOOD TYPE: Basis for blood type specific food reactivities
        Type O vs Type A vs Type B vs Type AB


(9) CONSTITUTIONAL TYPE: Links constitutional elements of foods with metabolism
        Vata vs Pitta vs Kapha

(
10) NEUROTRANSMITTER BALANCE: Brain chemistry balance and function

        Excitatory vs. Inhibitory

  • "A given metabolic imbalance can manifest in any number of ways, in any number of differents disease states or degenerative processes."
  • "Any given disease may arise from virtually opposite biochemical imbalances in different metabolic types."
  • "A single imbalance can result in any number of diseases, and vice versa."
  • "The pathways of degeneration are infinitely complex and vary greatly from person to person."
  • "Any given food or nutrient can have virtually opposite biochemical effects on different metabolic types."
  • "Nutrient-specific benefits will be seen only if a given nutrient is appropriate to a person’s metabolic type. Otherwise the same nutrient will have no effect on someone’s health condition, or may actually make it worse."
  • "Virtually all nutritional studies today are heterogenous patient populations."
