Why should you do a metabolic test?

More and more people are suffering from overweight – including people who supposedly do everything "right" by eating a balanced diet and doing lots of sport.

The consequences range from a frustrating Yo-Yo effect to chronic fatigue or digestive problems, to conditions like asthma or cardiovascular problems.

Depending on your metabolic type, you use macronutrients (carbohydrates, fats, proteins) differently.

For example:

  • Some people are genetically "fat consumers", i.e. they tolerate fat and protein (e.g. meat and fish, dairy products, nuts etc.) well, but tend to be overweight if they consume excessive amounts of carbohydrates (e.g. bread, pasta, peas).
  • Others, on the other hand, are good "carbohydrate consumers" because of their genes, i.e. large amounts of carbohydrates have little effect on their body weight, while a diet high in fat and protein has a negative effect.

Benefits of a metabolically appropriate diet

As soon as you know which metabolic type you belong to and adapt your diet or sports programme accordingly, you will reach your feel-good weight and stabilise it permanently.

  • Feel-good weight instead of overweight and Yo-Yo effect
  • Increase of energy and concentration
