A picture here speaks 1,000 words.  Compare this to the conventional (General Mills Corp Food Guide) which asks you to consume a truck load of grains as its' foundation of the pyramid.  Grains are what makes animals fat and therefore making humans fat as well.  Animals are sold by the pound so feeding them grains to make them fat only helps their bottom line and not your waistline.  More so than worrying about your waistline, you should be concerned about how else grains affect your entire body.  (Not going to get into that in this blog, but I needed to mention it).

This isn't a "Diet".  This is a way of understanding your food and how your body responds to it.  We prescribe a Paleo eating program, but one individual eating Paleo can be very different from another.  For instance, you can eat Paleo approved foods (real food) and only have 20% of your plate be meat, fish, chicken, etc... whereas others thrive on 80% of their plate representing the "protein" portion of their plate.  This is what metabolic typing determines.  How much protein do I need? The simple answer is, listen to your body!

If you eat too much protein, you will experience the following symptoms:

  • Lethargic

  • Mentally sluggish

  • Heavy gut

  • Feel full yet still hungry

  • Crave sweets

  • Crave caffeine

If you eat too much carbohydrate, you will experience the following symptoms:

  • Headache

  • Anxiety

  • Jittery/wired energy

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Hunger is not satisfied

  • Crave protein or fats

A balanced Response:

  • Appetite feels satisfied (not hungry or stuffed)

  • Feel emotionally balanced

  • Good mental focus

  • Normal level of energy

  • No cravings for sweets

  • No cravings for more food
