Metabolic Typing

Metabolic typing by physiotherapistChecklist

  • Enjoy sustained energy and endurance
  • You are what you eat
  • Achieve and maintain your ideal weight

We are all biochemically unique and so too are our nutritional needs. Research has shown that Eskimo’s are much healthier when eating their natural high fat and protein diet and the Chinese do much better when eating a very low fat, low protein diet. Our genetics greatly influence our ability to process foods.

Similarly our environmental demands influence our requirements. For example we need more carbohydrate during the summer and women need more protein near menstruation. Also, during periods of greater mental work you will require more carbohydrates and when exercising vigorously you will require more protein.

Metabolic typing is the science of understanding individual differences in our nutritional and dietary requirements, which is both genetically and environmentally based.

There is no one diet that is right for everyone! At Virtus we can help you to determine a starting point and coach you in learning to listen to your body.
