    Interesting, pretty spot on.

    "You are a Slow Oxidiser of carbohydrates.

    As a slow-oxidizer, you will feel the best with a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet with low-purine protein sources such as eggs, milk, cheese and fish."

    I will need to read a bit more, i wonder why they recommend those protein sources. That is exactly what makes me feel better and meats usually make me feel much worse.

    Well just googled purines and found this.. What Is Low Purine? | LIVESTRONG.COM

    Amazingly enough even though i had never heard of this deit, just by trial and error over time i have gravitated to this diet almost exactly. Very interesting.

    The more I read and research the hunter gatherer diets, the more obvious it becomes that there was a tremendous variation and seasonality in the human experience depending on where you lived and the climate. This means to me that the human species, in order to survive, is genetically predispositioned to be able to adapt to a variety of food sources and macro nutrient percentages. Therefore variation is probably the key to Paleo success, at various times alternating between VLC,LC, HC and fasting.

    I got the balanced oxidiser aswell: the ones who should eat everything

    I'm really interested to see what teh results of my DNA test say though, and whether the diet I'm now gravitating towards is actually the right one for me.

    Possibly. It might be that when you are eating a nutritious diet that is right for your type that you naturally start to make variations guided by how you feel. Some of the older hands are already reporting this, I'm not there at all yet.

    No, it was taken in a hospital in Cape Town that specialises in preventative medicine: they determine what your genetic risk factors are, and then set you a food and exercise plan that will help you maximise your genes.

    Oh god, not this metabolic typing stuff again. I basically answered my "typing" for it with these questions.

    You are a Slow Oxidiser of carbohydrates.

    As a slow-oxidizer, you will feel the best with a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet with low-purine protein sources such as eggs, milk, cheese and fish.

    This method of knowing your metabolic type helps you to choose the right kind of diet for yourself.
    Yeah, never would have guessed that given my answers.

    Just the fact that the above "metabolic typing" test asks about your blood type sends off my BSometer. I took the test once and told them one blood type then went back and did it again with all the same answers except a different blood type and it gave me a whole new "metabolic type" profile.

    I think the idea that anyone has a fixed metabolic type is silly. People's metabolisms change based on age, other health conditions, body fat percentage, activity level, etc.

    So, not only do different people have different metabolisms, any one person's metabolism goes through changes over time.

    Really? It set off my BSometer when it attempts to prescribe your perfect diet based on a questionnaire.
