Are you overweight?
Do you experience low energy, digestive problems, allergies, low blood sugar, poor concentration, mood swings, hormonal imbalances, high blood pressure, or other chronic ailments? Have you tried lots of diets with limited success? Are you confused by all the contradictory advice offered by nutrition experts? If your answer is yes to any of these questions, here's what you need to know: the real secret of health and fitness is customized nutrition.
In The Metabolic Typing Diet, William L. Wolcott provides, for the first time, a simple, practical method for identifying the particular diet that is tailored to your body chemistry, and yours alone. You begin by taking an innovative new self-test that enables you to identify your "metabolic type." From there you move on to mastering other quick and easy techniques, which allow you to zero in on the precise foods and combinations of foods--proteins, fats, and carbohydrates--that will enable you to achieve your ideal weight and robust good health.
For hereditary reasons, people are all very different from one another in outward appearance. Similarly, we are all unique on a biochemical or metabolic level--that is, in the way our bodies process foods and utilize nutrients. In the same way that certain cars are designed to run on gasoline while others require diesel fuel, each individual's body has its own "engine of metabolism" that requires a specific kind of "body fuel" to function efficiently. And this simple fact is the underlying principle of metabolic typing.
With The Metabolic Typing Diet, William L. Wolcott has written the definitive book on metabolic typing, widely regarded as the "next wave" in nutritional science. While other, one-dimensional dietary approaches attempt to differentiate people on the basis of only a single, fixed variable, such as blood type or body type, the metabolic typing diet offers a comprehensive, dynamic system that encompasses a wide range of biochemical variables and provides you with the means to pinpoint your personal dietary needs with enormous precision.
In The Metabolic Typing Diet, William L. Wolcott presents, in remarkably simple and user-friendly terms, an extremely advanced approach to customized nutrition, and provides all of the tools you require in order to tailor your diet to your own special needs.
Genetically, each individual is unique in the way he or she utilizes nutrients on a metabolic level, and YOUR BODY, YOUR DIET is the first and only book to offer men and women a revolutionary, scientifically proven system for discovering their metabolic type and, therefore, determining their own nutritional needs. Some people thrive on high protein diets that include meat and dairy products; others are built for high carbohydrate diets based mainly on vegetables and grains. By taking the self-test that William Wolcott has developed and tested over the course of many years, the reader will learn how his or her own internal "engine of metabolism" converts foods and nutrients into the "body fuel" that is necessary for all life-sustaining activities. And by following the proper diet, he or she will not only achieve an ideal weight, but will also be healthier, more energetic, and mentally alert.
YOUR BODY, YOUR DIET provides comprehensive food lists and other dietary instructions, including the proper ratios of protein, carbohydrates, and fat for each metabolic type. Based on a proprietary system available to no one but William Wolcott, this is, indeed, the very last "diet" anyone will ever need! -->

People are unique in more ways than we can see. Stomachs and other internal organs come in many different shapes and sizes. Digestive juices, too, can vary dramatically from one person to another. Thus, according to author William Linz Wolcott, founder of Healthexcel, a company that provides metabolic typing for individuals, it stands to reason that different foods have very different effects on different people.
Wolcott believes that tailoring your diet to your body's particular quirks--metabolic typing--will improve digestion, circulation, immunity, energy, and mood. To determine your type, he has you take a 65-question test (the questions range from nose moisture to how you feel about potatoes), then place yourself in one of three categories: protein type, carbo type, or mixed type.
The protein type is instructed to eat a diet that's 40 percent protein, 30 percent fat, and 30 percent carbs. The carbo type gets 60 percent carbs, 25 percent protein, and 15 percent fat. And the mixed type should consume 50 percent carbs, 30 percent protein, and 20 percent fat, although this type has to play with the ratios a little more to find the optimal mix.
Although The Metabolic Typing Diet is based on information from researchers the majority of the public will never have heard of, Wolcott makes a strong case that it's all based on common sense: most of the dietary problems we have come from ignoring the foods that make us feel satisfied and energetic in favor of ones that we feel we're supposed to eat, or foods that we eat in desperation because our last meal left us hungry or lethargic. If we just eat the foods that make us feel right, Wolcott argues, we'll never feel like things have gone horribly wrong. --Lou SchulerFrom the Back Cover:
