This review is from: The Metabolic Typing Diet (Paperback)
Following the negative and pointless reviews regarding metabolic typing; it would be impossible to notice any benefits when only trying the system for 2 days?!! Lets get a perspective on how nutrition and the body's metabolism actually works. Nutrition builds a better body thats no lie. There are no quick fixes especially none that could actually work within 48 hours! "A blood cell lasts 60-120 days, in 3-4 months your whole blood supply is completely replaced, in 6 months all of the proteins in your body die and are replaced, even the DNA of your genes. In a year all of your bones and even the enamel on your teeth is replaced, constructed entirely out of the nutrients you eat" (Dr Micheal Colgan. This point alone should stand out and tell you that nutrition is a process like a project,just a suggestion for negative reviewees do your research thoroughly before hand.
This book does state that is not a prescription to superhuman health in the short term; but if you stick with the program that suits your metabolic type then you should see improvements. Anyone who is thinking of trying this form of nutrition should consult a metabolic typing practitioner, so that your diet and nutrition plan can be updated effectively. Their tests are much more conclusive and give a better indication to what metabolic type you are. Also one thing to remember is that your type can shift and if you dont address it you may get ill as your body will not be getting the right balance of macro-nutriants that it needs.
Right moan and lecture over, this is an incredible book the information is well researched and the results of metabolic typing speak for themselves!! I've read many other books with similar ideas and concepts but none of these books address the complexities of the bodies reactions to nutrients like this one, it is years ahead of any material out there within this area.
Another positive to the book is that I found it to be completely unbiased with its views to carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
Bill Wilcott captures the mind with his style of writing I found this book very easy to read and great when referring back to it, it also had a good reference list which lead me to further reading which is always helpful.
