Why Doing Healthexcel Metabolic Typing® Is Easier And Healthier Than Being Vegan, Paleo, GAPS, etc.?by Raluca Schachter on Sep 28, 2012 • 9:36 am 1 Comment
Before I’ll explain what this article is about, I have to say what this article is NOT about:
- it is not against vegans, vegetarians, GAPS or Paleo believers, or ANY other diet supporters out there
- it is not even against certain “attempts” we see in the nutritional world today, that try to figure out metabolic individuality with unproven and superficial methods
What Is Healthexcel Metabolic Typing And Why Is It Easier Than Other Diets?
This diet plan actually contains the foods I always wanted and liked to eat! (and we talk here only about healthy foods).
Why Do We Need Metabolic Typing Today?
Why Is Metabolic Typing Healthier Than Other Diets?
A vegetarian diet- especially a low-fat version, and most especially a vegan one – is not sufficient nutrition for long term maintenance and repair of the human body. To put it bluntly, it will damage you. I know. Two years into my veganhood, my health failed, and it failed catastrophically. I developed a degenerative joint disease that I will have for the rest of my life. (…) Six weeks into my veganism I had my first experience of hypoglycemia. (…) My skin was so dry it flaked, and in the winter it itched so badly it kept me up at night. At twenty-four I developed gastroparesis, which, again, wasn’t diagnosed or treated until I was thirty-eight and found a doctor who worked with recovering vegans.
Of course there are cultures that do fine with vegetarian diets and are still healthier than most people living on a modern, processed diet today. But when Dr. Price examined the vegetarian cultures he observed these displayed more degeneration than the omnivore cultures.
That is why being “vegetarian by choice” or any “dieter by choice” and denying your own genetic makeup and real nutritional needs, will eventually cost you your health. Remember, YOU are unique on a biochemical level as you are in your fingerprints. Your diet should be unique as well.
