The question “What should I eat?” may be the most important question in nutrition. The reason, pure and simple, is that there is no greater, more powerful influence on your health than the food that you eat. I wholeheartedly believe that people must learn to follow the ancient wisdom of treating your food as your medicine, so that unknowingly, you don’t make it your poison instead.

When you eat according to your own Metabolic Type you can:
  • free yourself of food cravings
  • achieve and maintain your ideal weight
  • strengthen your immune system
  • prevent and reverse degenerative disease
  • optimize physical energy and mental depression
  • enhance athletic performance and endurance
When optimum energy is available to your body on all levels--- to your cells, organs, glands and systems--- then optimum (balanced and efficient) functioning, or good health is possible. Dr. William Wilcott

When it comes to fad diets, what works for one person might not work for others.

Generally speaking, after eating a meal, you should feel uplifted, satisfied, and experience an improvement in energy and well-being.

If you are not experiencing satiation, and are feeling worse in one of the following ways 2-3 hours after eating,
  • you still feel hungry even though you are full
  • you develop a sweet craving
  • your energy drops
  • you feel “hyper” nervous, angry, or irritable
  • you feel depressed
  • you feel lethargic
then you have not properly combined your macronutrients (proteins, fats and carbohydrates) during your last meal.

An Advanced Program is only available through a Certified Healthexcel Metabolic Typing Advisor. It is comprised of a computer weighted analysis questionnaire that reveals the status of your 4 Fundamental Homeostatic Control Systems and your Dominant System (see definitions in the following section):
  • Autonomic Type (Sympathetic, Balance, Parasympathetic)
  • Oxidative Type (Fast Oxidation, Mixed Oxidation, Slow Oxidation)
  • Endocrine Type (Pituitary, Adrenal, Thyroid, Gonadal)
  • Blood Type in relation to food allergies and lectins (A1, A2, AB, B, O)
  • Dominant System (Autonomic or Oxidative)

The Advanced Program provides:

Extensive and highly specific metabolic type diet recommendations
  • 300 item food list as per the metabolic type
  • Explanations of food groups relative to the metabolic type
  • Specific dietary do’s and don’ts for the metabolic type
  • Metabolic type menu plans and recipes
  • Extensive explanation of how to work with the MT diet, including How To Eat
  • Using The Food List and Fine-Tuning Macronutrient Ratios

Some useful definitions

Autonomic Nervous System:
communications system from the brain to the organs, glands, and every cell in the body, considered the master regulator of metabolism. The ANS consists of two divisions; Sympathetic and Parasympathetic, whose opposing, yet complementary (push/pull) interplay, results in metabolic regulation. Example: Sympathetic speeds the heart rate, Parasympathetic slows it. Together, these opposing influences regulate the heart rate.

Sympathetic:
“Fight or flight” (stressor) side of the autonomic nervous system

Parasympathetic:
Repairing and rebuilding (“rest and digest”) side of the autonomic nervous system.

Oxidative:
Referring to the process of intercellular conversion of nutrients to energy.

Endocirne Type:
One of the four primary energy-producing glands (pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, gonads) that play a major role in body structure and determine how and where fat accumulates on the body.

Blood Type:
Refers to the various ABO blood types (O, A, B, AB); their role in the Healthexcel System is as one of the factors in determining which foods to avoid, due to their blood type specific lectin content.

Lectin:
Protein fractions found in many foods that have an affinity for certain blood types and whose presence in significant numbers can cause digestive, allergic and other immune problems.

Dominant System:
The Fundamental Control System that is responsible for how foods and nutrients behave in the body. Nutrients behave differently when different systems are dominant, even to the point that the same food in different Metabolic Types can have opposite biochemical effects. For example, potassium alkalinizes in Autonomic Dominant Metabolic Types, but potassium acidifies in Oxidative Dominant Metabolic Types. “The Dominance Factor” explains why what works for one person can actually worsen another person with the same condition.

Differences between the Basic Program and the Advanced Program

Basic Program: A Self-Help Program Using The Metabolic Typing Diet by William Wolcott and Trish Fahey

Description

Wolcott, Founder of Healthexcel and the world's leading authority. Contains a self-test questionnaire that identifies the 3 basic, broad metabolic type categories: Protein Type, Carb Type and Mixed Type. Available to the general public.
  • The Metabolic Typing Diet is the authoritative, definitive book on metabolic typing
Analysis
  • 65 simple-to-answer questions
  • Self-scoring
  • Determines basic metabolic type - Protein Type, Carbo Type or Mixed Type
Reporting
  • Identifies and explains your basic metabolic type
  • Recommends the appropriate eating plan for your basic metabolic type
  • Minimal daily supplements are available for each type, involving the appropriate metabolic type vitamin/mineral formulation, enzymes, and essential fatty acids
