What is Metabolic Type?

Experts are unanimous that the “right nutrition“ is very important for good health. Unfortunately, experts cannot agree with what is the “right nutrition”.

In looking for the right nutrition for everyone, an important aspect has been ignored. Nutritional requirements vary greatly from one person to another. Just as we differ in terms of skin color, eye color, size, how we look, build and physical type, we also have differences in our metabolism and in the way our metabolism processes food. There is no universal form of nutrition which is suitable for everybody. Each person is unique and requires optimal nutrition which suits his or her metabolism for health and vitality.

We can ascertain your metabolic type by conducting an individual metabolic analysis. This is a result of indicators of the autonomic nervous system and metabolic rate.

The autonomic nervous system consists of 2 branches, the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. Both subconsciously control many bodily functions such as blood pressure, heartbeat, the immune system, etc. The autonomic nervous system has a considerable influence on the metabolic balance.

Different characteristics of the autonomic nervous system result in individual differences in metabolism. The right individual nutrition can restore the balance in the autonomic nervous system.

With people who have a fast metabolic rate, their cells create energy too quickly, and too slowly by the cells of those who have a slow metabolic rate. In order to restore metabolic balance, the right nutrition is important for every metabolic type. To slow down a fast metabolic rate, nutrition has to be rich in fat and protein and low in carbohydrate. On the other hand, someone with a slow metabolic rate requires more carbohydrate and less protein and fat.

Different metabolic types (derived from differing rates and the autonomic nervous system) process nutrition differently. The composition of food (fat, protein, and carbohydrate) is of great significance for individual metabolic types.

  • your blood work (42 blood parameters)
  • your metabolic analysis (body fat percentage, muscle mass, hydration levels, phase angle, metabolism rate, best workouts for you and how many calories you burn with specific exercises)
  • your personalized nutrition plan
  • your grocery list
  • medical history
  • nutritional assessment
