You are unique and your diet should be too

Has this ever happened to you?

  • You want to lose weight, so you try your best friend’s diet. She lost 35 pounds quickly, but you can’t seem to shed an ounce.
  • Your friend, the vegetarian, thrives on pasta and vegetables and has boundless energy. But when you imitate his diet, your energy plummets and you can hardly drag yourself out of bed.
  • You eat all the best foods, take only the finest quality supplements, you exercise and lead a healthy lifestyle. Yet you still don’t feel well.
  • You believe in nutrition, but you’ve given up on it. It’s impossible to make sense of the confusing and contradictory information flooding the market.

One Man’s Food Is Another Man’s Poison

Did you know that you are actually very different from every other person who ever was or ever will be? It’s true. Your body’s biochemical makeup is as unique as your fingerprints!

For genetic reasons, we’re all very different in the way that our bodies process foods and utilize nutrients. Throughout man’s evolutionary history, people all over the world have been forced to adapt to widely varying environmental circumstances – including very different climates and food supplies.

As an example, traditional Eskimos thrive on very large quantities of meat and fat, while people born in the tropics stay healthy eating fruits and grains and other light vegetarian fare. For decades, scientists have observed that people who eat according to their genetically based dietary needs have virtually no incidence of cancer, heart disease, or any other degenerative ailments. Do you know your unique genetically based nutritional needs?

Eat According To Your Metabolic Type

Metabolic Typing is derived from scientific methods developed from studying the major body control systems. These systems have been researched and have progressed over the past 70 years to our present program created by Bill Wolcott, author of The Metabolic Typing Diet.

Our poor health is a direct result of serious dietary deficiencies and imbalances. These problems persist because we have lacked the technology necessary to evaluate and correct nutritional problems on a case-by-case basis. Dietary solutions need to be tailored to individuals, because what works for one person may have no effect on another person, and may make a third person worse.

Carb Type, Protein Type, Mixed Type – Which are you?

There are three main Metabolic Typing categories: Carb, Protein, and Balanced/Mixed Types. In truth, there are as many types as there are people. Individual attention is necessary to provide understanding of YOUR specific metabolic patterns.

Laureen helped me better understand the nutritional needs of my unique metabolism and taught me about the importance of the quality of the foods we consume. Her knowledge of cutting edge nutritional theory was enlightening, and her focus on fresh, local, organic food sources has forever changed the way that I eat.

Apart from weight loss, there were many unexpected benefits of this new way of eating for me. I suffered migraines on a regular basis for more than twenty-five years and was on increasingly strong medications, with unpleasant side effects, in an attempt to control them. My migraines have disappeared since I began following Laureen’s nutritional guidelines. Also, I no longer take medication for the frequent indigestion and bloating I used to experience. Best of all, I have better mental clarity and more energy.
