Your Nutritional Fingerprint: Metabolic Typing

Your Nutritional Fingerprint: Metabolic Typing

One man’s meat is another man’s poison.   What is Metabolic® Typing? Metabolic® Typing is a system for identifying your optimal starting point for fine-tuning your macronutrient (animal to plant food) ratios. Today, this is not so easily done because in the past 1,000 years there has been an increase in racial mixing as we’ve become progressively more mobile. Only a few hundred years ago, it was normal for an Aboriginal to live his entire life without meeting an Eskimo or any other significantly different race (and therefore, genes). Today, the Eskimo thriving on about 90% animal foods: 10% plant foods could mate with the inland Aboriginal eating the opposite ratio of about 90% plant foods: 10% animal foods. Their offspring could have a phenotype akin to the mother’s, the father’s, or require a range of nutrients far broader than either parent alone! This can create some interesting dietary challenges because of the variances in phenotypes among races with such radically different environmental demands on their genes. To illustrate one example of humans developing within a certain environment/food shed. The below inserted pictures reveal the Bioregion of the Lakota People, and their traditional foods from the land where they also developed. Instead of eating a diet based on modern “foods of commerce”, we can look more closely at the traditional foods eaten by our ancestors in the bio-region where they lived. Their genes, and thus ours, evolved a synergistic relationship with animals and plants that are prepared and eaten within the food culture of their native land. Eating whole foods similar to those your genetic fore-bearers ate can help to provide...
