Do you eat to live, or do you live to eat?
I’m definitely in the latter category, but many people are in the former, and many are ‘mixed’ or in between.
I’ve mentioned to you many times about how there is no one diet for everyone, and how you need to find what works best for you.
But how? Well, one good place to start is to identify what type of eater you are, and, specifically I mean what metabolic type.
The work of Dr. William Wolcott, Paul Chek, and others teaches us about metabolic typing. There are various quizzes you can take online. If you’re into books, I recommend Paul Chek’s ‘How to Eat, Move, & Be Healthy.’
In a nutshell, it’s about the proportions of macronutrients (proteins, carbs, and fats) that you take in at each meal. If you’re heavily a protein type, and you eat a meal very high in carbs, you’ll probably feel like crap afterwards. Well, there’s a reason why.
Being aware of your type, and the ways to correctly balance for it, might be very important if you’ve never given it any thought at all.
