One man's food is another man's poison
My interest in healthy living, yoga and meditation lead me to an almost vegetarian diet for more than one year. And I didn't feel quite well. My body was sending me repeated signals that it didn't like it. When at some point toward the end of this painful experience I indulged into eating meat again, I realized that all the bad experiences vanished. I tested for days in a row, on and off my vegetarian diet. I found out, without a doubt, that I am not vegetarian "by design". Disappointed as I was, I had to admit my "limitations" and befriend my body again.
Intrigued, I researched the topic and I found out about Dr. William Donald Kelley original approach to nutrition. Further on William Wolcott extended this research and wrote the book (Metabolic Typing Diet ) which is the basis of the metabolic type self test.
A proper, "customized" diet has many benefits: painless weight loss, increased energy and improved health. The metabolic type diet does just that.
This is a long test, sixty five multiple choice (A,B,C) questions, so expect to spend around half an hour with it. Far less though than the time I spent to realize what food is good for me.
