This post is the first in a series where we will share the secrets of How to Boost Your Energy and Metabolism According to Your Body Type!
While some diets may work for some people, helping them to lose weight and become more energized, they can be devastating for others – causing weight gain, fatigue, and irritability. That was the case for me when I went on a low Carb diet, at the instruction of my trainer in preparation for a bodybuilding competition, and weighed in heavier and at a higher percentage of body fat than we wanted. The following year, I came in much leaner for a competition after I increased and maintained a higher Carb ratio in my pre-contest diet.
Then, 15 years later I followed the latest Paleo Diet fad, restricting my carbs, and once again gained fat around my belly, and began to suffer with insomnia, lack of energy, and mental fog.
What I finally learned was, I was not feeding my body according to the type of nutrition it needs to metabolize food for maximum energy, lean muscle mass, and mental acuity.
Eat According to Body Type
Eating foods that are right for your metabolic type will not only boost your metabolism, but will also improve your energy, mental capacity, and emotional well-being. Eating foods that are wrong for your metabolic type will produce the opposite, negatively impacting your body with weight gain, fatigue, and/or mental lethargy.
Your metabolic type determines your unique dietary requirements and governs your individual response to what types of food you eat. Everyone has a unique metabolic type, which impacts their weight, temperament, and overall sense of well-being. That means the same foods that keep you lean, energized, and happy, could make someone else gain weight and feel sluggish or fatigued and irritable.
Eating according to your unique metabolic body type is critical to optimizing your health by:
- Having more energy than you know what to do with.
- Feeling happy, peaceful, and confident.
- Reducing or getting rid of aches and pains.
- Relieving insomnia.
There are three fundamental types of human metabolism:
- Protein type
- Carb type
- Mixed type
Everyone metabolizes food in different ways, mostly according to their genetics; but other factors such as environmental toxins, and stress can also influence our metabolic functioning. Knowing your metabolic body type is the first step toward leading a healthier, happier life.
