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.

120 lbs is not necessarily "super skinny". It depends on your height. At 4'11", I've been told BY DOCTORS I should only weigh 100 lbs.

Its the same diet prescription for each type - very disappointing - why would you start a carb type on a protein only diet? Ridiculous - they will feel like crap...

On 3 versions of this test the test questions are the same but the explanations are different so I answer differently. Tests also demonstrate very poor food combining choices that make it impossible to answer most questions accurately. I have no choice but to throw out the results for all tests.

(cont.) What do you do when half the answer applies and the other half doesn't. Regarding "sweets": For some reason "candy" (hard candy? chocolate?) and wheat products (pies/pastries/cakes) are combined. WHY??? The physiological response to these is drastically different for me (wheat intolerant) to be continued.

continued: What do you do when half the answer applies and the other half doesn't ?? Regarding salads: (green? pasta? potato?) are almost always paired with fruit salad. AGAIN the physiological responses are different Green salad works well for me. fruit salad often has mayonnaise or whipped cream in it and doesn't work well. Pasta salad just puts me to sleep.

Mind quotes

If we value independence, if we are disturbed by the growing conformity of knowledge, of values, of attitudes, which our present system induces, then we may wish to set up conditions of learning which make for uniqueness, for self-direction, and for self-initiated learning.
