    Carb Type vs Protein Type

    I understand that some people are carb type and others are protein type, and some are a combination of the two. What does this mean and what are the ramificiations of being a carb vs protein type?

    This... Protein and fat are both 100% necessary to a healthy life. The AMOUNT of carbs is more individual.
    Not one or the other.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Perhaps I should have written, "metabolic type". From what I've read, metabolic typing has nothing to do with eating only carbs or protein or fat. It has more to do with metabolic type and how people process different foods differently. It also concerns how some people will do better with a higher ratio of carbs to fat and protein and others a lower ratio. I saw the following article and was wondering if there was anything to metabolic typing and how it might affect a Paleo diet. I was looking for some insight, not excite.

    Sounds like some ridiculous blood type diet-esque hoogy moogy. But that's just my gut reaction. Never heard of it.

    Metabolic Types...Are you eating what you should? - Page 1

    Yeah, I basically disagree with the premise of this. So no metabolic typing is only "real" in terms of your personal and maybe immediate family history of metabolic disease and or injury, and your current adaptations to whatever amounts of micros and macros you are consuming. Sure there are some genetic attributes that allow some people to produce more amylase or something, but in general these small nuances are not enough to make a difference in your human diet. If they are you will likely have to figure it out the hard way with some serious N=1.

    Meh, dont like any of her breakdowns anyhow i'm 65%fat, 20%protein, 15%carb. What sort of metabolizer am I based on that chart?

    If you ask me, I'm a protein type because I'm made of meat, not starch and sugar.

    This guy has an interesting hypothesis that there are different types of obesity with different causes that respond to different treatments. It's not at all what you are talking about, but interesting reading anyway.
    Obesity starts in the brain*/* Getting Stronger
    Female, 5'3", 49, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
    I can squat 180lbs, press 72.5lbs and deadlift 185lbs
