Metabolic Typing Diet: Adding Meat back into my diet

December 15, 2015 0 comments Clean Eating

The last test I had done in my Functional Diagnostic Nutrition training was the Metabolic Typing Diet. Knowing your Metabolic Type helps you determine how your body uses fuel for energy. Some people burn starches and grains far more efficiently, while others are fueled better with a higher concentration of proteins and fats. Metabolic Typing helps to discover the correct fuel mixture for each person.

I recommend this test for everyone, but it especially helped me clear out the confusion of “What Should I eat?” I tested as a Parasympathetic Dominant, which means I do best on high purine foods and mostly protein. So, I ventured back into the realm of organic meats, hence this Beef Stew Recipe. This is very new for me, and very delicious! My plate looks like 40% protein (or more) 40% fat and very little carbs.

If you would like more information, or would like to have this test run on yourself, email me at: innercurator@gmail.com
