Metabolic Typing Questionnaire

This questionnaire is designed to help you determine the optimal macro nutrient ratio (fats:proteins:carbohydrates) to begin the process of fine-tuning your body’s feedback mechanisms. For those of you not sure what a fat, protein or carbohydrate is, here's a simplified explanation. If the food comes from something that has a set of eyes, it is going to be higher in fats and proteins; fats and proteins most often come together in nature. For example, cows, sheep, birds and fish all have eyes and all provide higher protein/ fat foods. Foods like vegetables, breads and cereals do not come from a source that had a set of eyes and are generally much higher in carbohydrates and lower in fat and protein. There are a few exceptions to this rule; such as, nuts and avocados, which have no eyes, yet are high fat foods.

 

When answering the questions, mark the answer that best describes the way you feel, not the way you think you should eat. If none of the answers suit you with regard to a particular question, feel free to skip that question. If the answer A suits you some of the time (in the morning, but not the evening for example), and answer B suits you other times, you may check both boxes provided that the answers refer to how you may feel on any given day, not within a period of over 24 hours.
