Quick Healthy Weight Loss Tips

In one of the previous blog posts titled ‘Best diet tips for weight loss’, we started talking about metabolism types and how you can create custom meals based on your metabolism type. We also gave some tips for the first one – the protein metabolism. Today, it’s time to unvail the rest.

Quick healthy weight loss tips for ‘carbohydrate type’ metabolism person

If you have a carbohydrate type metabolism, you will tend to eat less because eating is not very important for you. You may even skip meals often. As a carbohydrate type person, you are dependent on caffeinated beverages. This dependence in turn, weakens your appetites even further compounding your nutritional problems.

A carbohydrate type person needs a diet that contains a higher proportion of carbohydrates. Your meal should contain proteins and fats, too but must lean more on carbohydrates so plan your meals accordingly.

If you feel lethargic after a high carbohydrate meal, in your next meal reduce the carbohydrate slightly and compensate with an increase in the protein content. You will need to tweak the exact ratio until you feel full and energetic after a meal.

Quick healthy weight loss tips for ‘mixed type’ metabolism person

A person with a mixed type body metabolism requires equal proportions of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. A person with mixed type body metabolism will generally be hungry at meal times but not in between; or ravenous in between but no appetite at meal times and so on. These swings depend on the type of foods eaten during the day. If you are a person with mixed type body metabolism, you probably do not suffer from food cravings. But if eat too much sugar or carbohydrates, you may develop occasional strong cravings for sugar.

My best advice for people with mixed type body metabolism is to read the data I have presented for protein types and the data in this blog post for carbohydrate type metabolism.

You will need to find your own balance i.e. what ratio of proteins, carbohydrates and fats works best for you as it would be impossible for me or any other dietitian to write out a formula for you. Experiment at each meal until you feel fully satisfied after a meal and suffer from no hunger pangs until the next meal. Write down the food ratio and quantity you had – it will be your priceless golden formula to good health.
