What is Metabolic Typing, and how is different from all of the “fad” diets out there?
In short, Metabolic Typing is a systematic, testable, repeatable, verifiable methodology for identifying genetically-based individual requirements for diet and nutrition.
To expand on and clarify that a little bit – Metabolic Typing is not a traditional “diet” because it takes individual differences into account. Fad diets are generic in their approach, prescribing the same nutritional plan for everyone. As a result, some people experience success (if only for a short time), while others fail miserably, some even experiencing disease as a result. Metabolic Typing explains this phenomenon by teaching us that a “one size fits all” diet does not exist – one person’s medicine is another person’s poison. The same foods that keep your best friend slim may keep you overweight and feeling unhealthy and fatigued.
By examining your physical, psychological, and diet-related traits, your specific metabolic type can be determined. Your type dictates which foods and food combinations will work best with your individual nutritional needs. These foods will be your key to achieving optimum health and vitality.

What is a CHEK Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach?
A Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach (NLC) is trained to help people achieve optimal health. Most people define heath simply as the absence of diagnosed illness. An NLC takes a more holistic approach when defining health by evaluating many factors, including:
- digestive, respiratory and musculoskeletal systems
- nutritional and sleep habits
- possible food allergies, etc.
- stress levels
- outlook on life
- breathing habits, etc.
All of these areas are intertwined, and when one of them is out of balance, overall health and wellness is affected. By identifying problem areas, an NLC can help you change your internal and external environment to allow you to slow the aging process, increase your vitality, and experience what it feels like to be truly healthy.
