The human body is indeed unique but most types of people can be categorized into 3 metabolic types : Carb Reducers (carb blockers) , Better Balancers , and fat reducers (fat blockers). Carb Reducers are people who have higher sensitivity to carbohydrates and tend to gain weight easily with just a bit of excess carbing. Better Balancers are people who benefit from having an even balance of protein , fats, and carbs. Fat reducers are like Carb Reducers but with fats. Reducing fats from their diet usually yields more dramatic results and they don't have as much of a sensitivity to carb intake. Let’s just say your metabolic type is a unique result of your genes and environment.
We need carbohydrates and fats along with other vital substances or nutrients in order for our bodies to function. Carbohydrates are the energy source for the body and come in three categories – starches, sugars, and fibers. Starches can come in the form of vegetables (potatoes, beans, peas, etc.), legumes or beans, and grains such as rice, oats, and barley. There are natural sugars in fruits and then processed sugars such as honey, brown sugar, and beet sugar. Fiber is strictly plant or food based in the form of fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes. Fats, at least healthy fats, are essential for growth and bodily functions along with metabolic regulation.
A football analogy: The defensive linemen’s objective – get to the quarterback. Who blocks them? The offensive linemen. With that said, if your weight loss fluctuates because of inadequate fat and/or carbohydrate absorption, then blockers or blocking supplements are needed. Just exactly how do you determine if you are a carb blocker or fat blocker? While some clear sensitivities will kick in terms of reactions with the most obvious weight gain when adding more carbs or more fats to your diet. However, some weight gain is hard to attribute due to other factors such as water retention or hormonal fluctuations. To remove the guesswork and pinpoint your genetic disposition you can take a genetic weight loss test.
This is why BalanceDiet has formulated the Interluken Genetic Test for Weight Loss; a swab kit that is mailed to the genetics testing lab for processing and analysis which then results in a customized breakdown report of your genetic dispositions towards diet and exercise.
Weight gain, even weight loss, is determined by how we digest and metabolize food. Weight loss and/or balanced weight maintenance is a breeze (an envious one) for a person with a fast metabolism. But many people do not know that some peoples genetic disposition makes them yield better results from moderate vs high intensity activity , carb reduction, fat reduction and other factors. By working with our body using the blueprint of our genetics we are able to better optimize our fitness sand diet choices to yield more effective long term results.
This test kit helps you better understand the link between heredity and metabolism, food digestion. The foods you eat or what foods are best for you to eat is determined as well for proper digestion and metabolism. Weight improvement and management is achieved with a proper balance of not just carbs and fats but proteins too. It’s tailor made to you, your DNA, your body’s uniqueness. So stop the guesswork. Take control. Get off the weight maintenance seesaw. Once you have taken the genetic test and received your results a BalanceDiet specialist will work with you to develop a personalized meal plan and supplementation program . BalanceDiet also offers Carb Blocking and Fat Blocking supplements to assist & catalyze the results of this process.
