Getting the right diet for you

Diets come and go some diets work well for some individuals while the same diet will not work for all people. We are all Genuinely Genetically different.

  • The Standard American Diet – what we are taught and why you might be confused about what to eat.
  • Does the Standard American Diet (SAD) Work?
  • Changes in the SAD have come for good reasons including

    The Right Diet Choices

    Westin Price D.D.S., author of Nutrition and Physical Degeneration toured the world from the 1920-50’s looking at traditional diets and the health of individuals seeking out the ‘perfect’ diet. Dr. Price was a major influence in Americans understanding the link between diet and disease.

    • His finding indicated many things that today are often still true.
    • Refined foods diets lead to disease and degeneration
    • Whole foods diets sustain health and prevent disease
    • Diet macronutrients (Carbohydrates, fats and proteins) vary greatly depending on localities in the world and foods available.
    • Eskimo diet: large amount of fat (whale, seal, salmon), kelp and frozen berries.
    • African diet more complex carbs, saturated fats (coconut, palm, beef), blood from animals.
    • People that eat fish are more intelligent and had better ‘civil’ governments
    • Strict vegetarian diets don’t sustain health for long periods of time.
    • The Chinese recognize 3-5 different metabolisms and food needs
    • Ayurvedic doctors recognize 3 different metabolisms (vata, kapha, pitta)
    • In essence is one diet does not fit all- one man’s meat is another man’s poison.
    • What metabolic typing is:
      • Individualized diet plan
      • Helping you to understand what your body need
    • What Metabolic typing is not:
      • Fix all, if you eat junk foods and keep your macronutrients in your Metabolic type you will not receive benefits that you might be seeking.
      • The final answer, although for many Metabolic Typing helps a large percentage of people get their diet and lifestyle in to the road of success some individuals don’t benefit.
    • Alteration in BMR comes from the following areas:
      • Age (slows with age)
      • Height
      • Body Composition (more muscle higher BMR)
      • Environmental temperature (colder increases BMR)
      • Hormones such as Thyroid health
      • Malnutrition (lower calories lowers BMR)
      • Gender (males have higher BMR than females)
    • BMI (Body Mass Index): an index of a person’s weight in relation ot height: determined by dividing the weight by height- this is considered by many health care systems as the best method for overall health in relation to body size, weight and mortality (death)
    • BMI failures:
      • Does not account how much weight is body fat (body fat %)
    • Body Fat %: Indicator of actual body fat and muscle mass.
      • Better for individuals working out and maintain a healthy body
    • Waist Hip: Indicator for body fat distribution and is considered an indicator disease.
      • Diabetes II

    Metabolic Typing: Diet for individuality

    Based on research of many doctors Dr. Roger Williams Ph.D., (discoverer of B-5), Dr. William Kelly D.D.S., (dentist and cancer researcher), Dr George Watson PhD (Psychology), Dr.Price D.D.S., Dr. Royal Lee and many others whose workand ideas of metabolic typing has been around for many years. Metabolic typing suggests each person(s) diet is somewhat unique and different.

    Some final notes on individual metabolisms

    Metabolic typing answers many questions as to why some individuals thrive on a vegetarian diet and someone else thrives on a Keto, or Atkins Diet.

    A lot of people have found what ‘diet and foods’ make sense for their systems by trial and error already. –I call this paying attention to your body.

    Ultimately speaking Metabolic Typing tries to answer the question about eating right for you and your genetics: ------- After this is answered it might help you make a better decision on what diet might work best for you.

    What is your metabolic type? Test is provided for you with the book.

    Get the calories right: HOW MUCH FOOD DO I NEED.

    Metabolism is the amount of calories needed to meet you energy requirements and is based on three dominant things.

    • BMR = basal metabolic rate- this is how many calories you need to maintain life in a rested state. And accounts for 50-65% or more of your caloric needs.
    • Exercise: THE MOST MODIFIABLE metabolism factor.
      • Account for 20-50% of the calories needs of your body.
      • Exercise is the one area you can change your body most effectively
    • Thermic Effect of foods.
      • Smaller more frequent meals are noted to increase calories burned from foods consumed.
      • This is common in many diet and fat loss programs.
      • Does not account for where the body fat is at
      • Disease risks
      • Cardiovascular disease
      • Metabolic syndrome

    What IS THE Perfect weight for me? BIOMARKERS

    Bio markers help you find how you are staking up- how successful is your diet and weight management plan is affecting your health and longevity- good parameters for health.

    There are DIFFERENT biomarkers

    Abdominal Obesity: Called visceral fat (fat around abdominal organs) is considered the most unhealthy fat. Waist sizes over 35”- female & 40” male are considered high risk.

    Foundations for getting into shape

    The Successful program for obesity and weight loss maintenance is: consistent basic foundations of good health --- a positive mental attitude--- a health full lifestyle (including regular exercise and proper food intake) ---- a health promoting diet---- and supplementary measurers: all are complimentary measures in making success.

    Supplements are just that supplements: Foundation start with diet and exercise first. Here is a small list of supplements that have Therapeutic consideration:

    • Fiber Supplements:
    • Chromium:
      • one of the most important issues in weight management is sensitivity of the cells to insulin. Chromium often times is one nutrient that has shown improvement in weight loss in diabetic individuals. Dosages were 200-400mcg a day.
    • 5-htp
      • Direct precursor to serotonin: 3 human studies on weight loss has shown some benefits for 5-HTP and weight loss. Results suggested improved satiety and weight loss. Dosage up to 300mg a day were used. Follow directions on the bottle for best results.
    • MCT oil: not pure coconut oil – MCT’s
      • Provides thermogenic effects: 1-2 tbsp a day were the recommended dosages.
