The Ultimate Guide to Optimum Health
and Permanent Weight Loss

There are few things in life as liberating as discovering your metabolic type, few things as enlightening as finally coming to understand exactly what foods and food combinations will enable you to thoroughly enjoy your life and live it to the fullest.

Most of us have been slaves to food in one way or another all our lives. Quite literally, what we eat controls every aspect of our existence -- how we look and feel, our range of productivity and performance, the quality of our emotional experiences, whether we stay well or fall prey to disease, even the quality of our sleep and the nature of our dreams.

When we don't understand how specific foods affect us, eating becomes a daily struggle. We struggle to feel satisfied, to fight the battle of the bulge, or just to feel decently from one hour to the next.

Once you recognize your metabolic individuality, however, everything changes. The balance shifts, the tables are turned -- suddenly you're the one in control of food, it's not in control of you. Eating right is no longer a complex challenge and food is no longer your adversary. When you know how to choose foods that effectively sustain your body's unique style of functioning, eating is what it should be -- easy and enjoyable.

Imagine the sense of excitement and empowerment you'll have the first time you go to the supermarket and select groceries in a truly well informed and targeted way -- rather than being forced to make purchases in a random, haphazard fashion, based largely on guesswork about what might or might not be good for you or your family.

Think of the freedom you'll experience once you're able to identify, with certainty, what kind of meals or snacks can make you feel great and give you high levels of energy and endurance for hours at a time.

Won't it will be exhilarating to know exactly what you can eat anytime you need to be at your best for a business presentation or a tennis match, to take an exam or embark on a long road trip? What's more important than knowing how to choose just the right sustenance to enable you to put in a long day at the office, enjoy your kids, pursue your hobbies, write a novel, or burn the midnight oil in any one of a thousand different ways?

It's not an exaggeration to say that, once you identify your metabolic type and begin to eat accordingly, your life will never be the same. It's literally like having a blindfold removed, and experiencing a whole new dimension in life. You'll wonder how you've managed to function all these years without this kind of fundamental self-awareness.

Health & Fitness Benefits for Every Type

When you start to eat correctly, you'll experience lots of positive changes that will sharply improve the quality of your life. Some of these benefits will occur right away, others will take a while longer.

Here are the kinds of improvements you can expect in the short-term:

* your food will be efficiently converted to energy rather than stored as fat

* you'll enjoy plenty of physical and mental energy following meals and snacks

* you'll feel full and hunger-free, 4 to 5 hours after meals

* you'll lose your cravings for sweets and starchy foods

* digestive problems -- indigestion, gas, bloating -- will subside

* you'll have sustained energy and endurance throughout the day

* you'll be capable of improved athletic performance

* your ability to concentrate will be significantly enhanced

* you'll enjoy a renewed sense of well-being and positive mental outlook

* irritability, anxiety, depression, and hyperactivity will fade away

There are plenty of long-term benefits you can expect as well, although they're different for everyone, since people have different kinds of metabolic imbalances and an almost infinite assortment of related health problems.

In general, however, here are the kinds of long-term health benefits you can expect if you stick to a diet that's tailored to your metabolic type:

* natural weight loss, without dieting or restricting calories

* permanent weight loss, without struggle, deprivation or hunger

* achievement of your ideal weight, whether you're overweight or underweight

* prevention of chronic disease

* enhanced immunity

* improved resistance to colds, flu, recurrent infections

* reversal of chronic or degenerative health disorders

* slowing of the aging process

A customized diet will provide you with much more than symptom suppression, a quick fix for common ailments, a temporary energy boost, or a way to help you shed a few pounds in the short term -- only to have your health problems and your weight reappear again soon. It's a process that enables you to optimize your health in a permanent way, by balancing the homeostatic mechanisms that control all aspects of your metabolism.

When you consistently consume the right fuel mixture, you're providing your body with the raw materials it needs to regulate and repair and regenerate itself on an ongoing basis. That's the essence of real health and real healing, and the reason why people are very successful when they use metabolic typing to prevent and reverse chronic illness. You'll be amazed at the kinds of results you can achieve with customized nutrition, especially if you apply a little time and perseverance.
