    While the metabolic typing questionnaires were more in depth (I'm still a pesky mixed type eater for sure) than the ones in How to Eat, Move and Be Healthy!, I found the science and other suggestions to be more 'lofty' than the actual facts Paul Chek and Robb Wolf offer up in their books. This one has been my least favorite book on nutrition I have read thus far. It's not a bad book, just more 'sciencey' than what I normally enjoy reading.

    As a health coach, I think this concept plays a major role in fighting obesity, chronic disease, and the general ill health experienced by the majority of Americans today.

I will probably also buy a DTV to be able to reference some things a bit more easily for my clients. There is no such thing as "the perfect diet" for mankind. We are all individuals with distinct biochemistry based on our genetic heritage and influenced by our environment. While a raw vegan diet may work for some, it definitely will not work for others. This is where metabolic typing comes in. The basic questionnaire included in the book provides a base line to start you on your path to determining the best foods for you to be eating. Some people may need more protein, some less. Some need more fats in their diets, some less. This helps you figure out your approximate location on that continuum. Determining your metabolic type really requires mindfulness and attention to your body physically, mentally and emotionally. As you tune in and understand your body again, you'll be able to modify your diet to produce good health, energy and maintain a proper weight for your body. The book has further tools to help understand what your body is saying to you, and for helping adjust your diet for maximum benefit. Metabolic typing, combined with proper habits on what, when and how you eat and physical exercise are the keys to weight management and vital health

    The idea is interesting and according to my own experience there is probably truth to it. A diet that is right for your body is important for good health. How to figure out the diet that is right for you is another matter.

I also found that some of the text was very salesman-like, a bit like a commercial.

    This book gave me a lot to think about. It also freed me from the dreaded low calorie diet plan. The self test is included in the book - which is nice. It also gets you started on healthier eating with some adjustment suggestions if you are still experiencing problems with the foods you eat. The only thing I didn't care much for was the first several chapters was tireless in it's justification for this approach to nutrition. Enough with the justification - get on with the methods!

    Bodyworker and yoga teacher Ellen Heed recommended this book during a three day anatomy training I took with her. Since I liked a lot of what she had to share, I figured I'd check out some of her sources. This book is a great explanation as to why some diets work for some people and why some diets literally kill those who try them out. Wolcott and Fahey group people into three basic categories: those who need a higher protein to carb diet, those who need a higher carb to protein diet, and those Bodyworker and yoga teacher Ellen Heed recommended this book during a three day anatomy training I took with her.

Wolcott and Fahey group people into three basic categories: those who need a higher protein to carb diet, those who need a higher carb to protein diet, and those who need an even mix of carbs and proteins. There's a quiz in the middle of the book to help you identify which type you are, along with other follow-up quizzes and self-tests to further refine your own diet and food reactions. While I liked what Wolcott and Fahey have to say about diets and their emphasis on discovering what works best for you, the lack of citations bothered me. I wanted to see where they were getting their information and numbers. There were a few in text references to previous research, but not a single footnote or endnote. So, though I personally agree with their hypothesis, I'm not sure I'd go touting this book as a revolutionary work since the science just isn't there.

    You can basically skim Chapter 1-2 and then skip to Chapter 6 because it is a lot of redundant hypotheses and what if scenarios without anything helpful. I think that this concept is real and is much more sensical than the fad diets ... the no carb, the atkins, the cabbage soup diet, the vegetarian diet ... Every human being's makeup is so unique that it makes sense that some "diets" and restrictions simply do not work for everyone!

It keeps all of the fads and the latest trend in check. There are HEALTHY and NATURAL ways to stimulate your metabolism without powders and pills!

    What I liked: -- telling me to eat more butter -- the type quiz, mostly because I hadn't thought about most of those things before, and I was surprised at how skewed my answers were toward one type -- telling me to eat whole-fat dairy, because I already do, and I get so annoyed when any person or app (looking at you, NutriSavings) tells me that skim milk is "healthier." Screw you. What I didn't like: -- claiming that a list of 12 steps to follow is simple -- literally referring to "good" and "bad" What I liked: -- telling me to eat more butter -- the type quiz, mostly because I hadn't thought about most of those things before, and I was surprised at how skewed my answers were toward one type -- telling me to eat whole-fat dairy, because I already do, and I get so annoyed when any person or app (looking at you, NutriSavings) tells me that skim milk is "healthier." Screw you. What I didn't like: -- claiming that a list of 12 steps to follow is simple -- literally referring to "good" and "bad" foods (I don't like moralistic language with food) -- huge lists of food to have or avoid--especially silly for me as an alleged "mixed" type -- grocery shopping would become a true burden, and I already struggle enough with it. Actually, I'm trying to remember the last time I went to the grocery store... -- giving me a bajillion rules and then saying that it's really up to me to experiment and figure things out...within this framework. Haha no, if I'm figuring it out myself I'm gonna do it in a way that feels good and is more practical. -- I wanted more science. -- feeling on board for a bit of it until it got really preachy, and wanting to throw the whole thing out. I don't think I'll make any real changes based on it. I was intrigued by the idea that the diet that works for your body keeps you full for longer so you don't snack as much or crave sweets as much. Since there was no convincing science around that it could be total nonsense. But as a frequent snacker (honestly I have more snacks than meals), and someone who typically can't eat much at once, I was also kind of annoyed at the idea that the way I eat implies that I'm unhealthy. I'm the healthiest I've ever been! And putting on muscle. When I try to eat a big-kid-size meal, it often takes me at least an hour, or I keep setting it aside and coming back to it. So the lesson here is that everyone's really different and screw diet books.

    Following a temporary diet never works long term but eating for your metabolic type is something you can do for a lifetime. All that is contained in this book makes perfect sense and when you follow the proper "diet" (way of eating) for your type you will find yourself feeling more satisfied and will be able to better stabilize your weight. As a personal trainer I've recommended this to many clients. It's a lifestyle as opposed to a quick fix and one that is relatively easy to learn and live wit Following a temporary diet never works long term but eating for your metabolic type is something you can do for a lifetime.

    Interesting concept. It is true that our heritage creates our metabolism. Each of us has a unique requirement for sustaining our bodies and should eat according to that. Maintaining that in our society is the problem.

    Some iffy points in the book where it seems like the author was being critical of the fact that the world has become so genetically mixed? I don't know if I was picking up on that correctly, though. I would have given it five stars if it weren't for the query I had. I learned that I am a person who processes protein and fats much more easily than carbohydrates, and as such I need to be eating much more meat, and greens, and much less carbs and sugars. This seems intuitively true. I am going to g Some iffy points in the book where it seems like the author was being critical of the fact that the world has become so genetically mixed?

    Of all of the nutrition books that I’ve read, this is easily one of my favorites. There’s nothing that I dislike more than an author writing a book about nutrition and purporting that his way is the only way. The Metabolic Typing Diet is different from most diet books in that regard. The basic premise of The Metabolic Typing Diet is that we are all individuals, biochemically speaking.

There’s nothing that I dislike more than an author writing a book about nutrition and purporting that his way is the only way. The Metabolic Typing Diet is different from most diet books in that regard. The basic premise of The Metabolic Typing Diet is that we are all individuals, biochemically speaking. We are different in the way that various foods affect our biochemistry, our gene expression, our health, weight, and so on. The author, William Wolcott, asserts that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition; that there are as many metabolic types as there are people. After discussing the numerous successes he’s had with metabolic typing (permanent weight-loss, chronic ailments alleviated, degenerative disease reversed, etc.), Wolcott provides a 65-question self-test for you to find your unique metabolic type. He then details the general guidelines for each metabolic type, and instructs you on how to customize it even beyond the generalizations given. With chapter titles like “One Man’s Food is Another’s Poison” and “Key Considerations Beyond Diet,” this book provides a comprehensive starting point for you to implement the principles outlined in it. It is full of actionable information that you can incorporate into your lifestyle going forward to help you reach your health and fitness goals. I highly recommend it!

But if you're a serious binger, or morbidly obese, it's not going to work out for you. You MUST count calories. Would you tell a diabetic that they don't need to take their blood sugar tests as long as they avoid sugar and only eat kale and tofu? Obesity is a health problem, not a cosmetic one. You have to monitor what goes on. Sorry. Just another junk science book, what a shame.

    I absolutely loved this book. To be honest, I had been introduced to this idea many years ago but had never really taken it seriously. I had never read the science behind it and it seemed crazy that I could eat high fat and still lose weight. It was only years later after I had given up gluten, alcohol, and sugar and was pretty much left with a high fat, high protein diet, that I was able to see how wonderfully it worked for me (I'm a fast oxidizer).

I lost 50 pounds and kept it off easily without counting calories or feeling deprived. My cholesterol went down too and my energy went up. It wasn't like a diet at all. I decided to reread the book because I think I'm eating a few too many super sweet fruits and unhealthy restaurant items and want to work with my diet just a bit more. I'm excited to see if a bit more strict observance of my type of diet will help to make me 100% better :).

    The fundamental premise of the book - that every person has a unique metabolic type they should eat for - is well represented but in my opinion the science goes a bit soft beyond some basic points. A lot of the book feels like the gristle you have to put up with to enjoy a little bit of juicy meat; sometimes bordering on those websites you see that try to sell you their book about their magic formula for a flatter stomach / million dollars / generic life success. The typing itself makes sense to The fundamental premise of the book - that every person has a unique metabolic type they should eat for - is well represented but in my opinion the science goes a bit soft beyond some basic points.

    I loved this book in that it helped open my eyes a few years ago to realize that the diet I was eating, which I thought was healthy, was the right type of diet which totally was the opposite. The quiz in the book showed that I needed a higher protein-fat diet rather than the high carbs diet I was consuming. That was one of the reasons why I was not able to drop the bodyfat I wanted. The book gave me a much clearer understanding of how to change my diet to be better for my body and what it needed.

    Book was a bit full or more bio-chemistry than I could keep up with at times, but overall a refreshing perspective on the food we eat and that each of us has to find our own combination of food that nourishes our body. While this isn't new news, he is able to explain it and offer stories and perspectives that bring more than many other nutrition books I've read. I've been putting principles to use in my daily life since reading it. Very Good.

    This offers some fascinating ideas about how to achieve a truly healthy, natural state. If I could wish for those of you seeking improved health just one thing: it'd be to begin with this one book. It will literally save you so much time (and money) because you'll avoid the common pitfall of trying one thing after another without success.

    I agree that a lot of the later chapters are a bit more of the types of pseudoscience that get on my nerves, however, the rest of the book, including the questionnaire, are extremely helpful. I have been unable to lose weight for years; by following the recommendations based on my apparent metabolic type I have managed to start shedding pounds (finally!)

    A waste of time. Contains all the catchphrases found in nutrition fads today and no particular insight. Basically the end result of all the testing for me was eat what makes you feel good and avoid things that don't. Glad it was a library book so I could return it and not feel that I wasted my money on such drivel. A waste of time.
