MIXED TYPE METABOLISM
Thank you for completing our brief questionaire! Based on the answers to your questions it is most likely that you have a Mixed-type metabolism.
ABOUT MIXED TYPES
A Mixed Type feels best eating a well balanced healthy diet. Variety in everyday meals will help you feel your best. Of the three metabolism types, this one is usually the easiest to manage, simply because the food choices are greater.
Mixed types as the name suggests sit somewhere between the two extremes of protein types and carb types. While you may not feel shaky after sugary snacks with a subsequent low (as with protein types), you are by no means immune to this. Also, while you might not suffer from a weak appetite and tend to skip meals and then subsequently need caffeine to thrive , (as with carb types) again you may experience this at times also. Mixed types may tend slightly towards one of the other two metabolic types and it may take some trial and error to find out exactly what foods work best for you. By monitoring your responses to each meal you can determine which foods make you feel healthy and energized and which foods leave you feeling hungry, irritable and tired, or craving more food.
As a general rule, avoid junk foods, eat healthy foods and keep a good balance of proteins, carbohydrates and healthy fats in your diet.
Dieting: As a mixed type, there are lots of balanced diets which you will tolerate well. Some are great for short term weight loss, while others offer long term health benefits. I’ve listed a few well known dietary plans HERE

Fire up your metabolism: Have you ever noticed (and lets face it we all have) how some people seem to be able to eat as much as they want and never gain weight, while others seem to add pounds just by looking at food? This is due to differences in our baseline metabolic rate, but did you know that you have the power to change yours? Interested, CLICK HERE to learn more.
Detox: While eating right and regular exercise is the cornerstone of healthy living, if you have a history of poor diet, or previous exposure to various harmful toxins, you may struggle to break old habits. Detoxing is a great way to reset your baseline before starting a new diet or exercise program. If you’re considering a detox program, then read our review of the Red Tea Detox, a program which combines the detoxing properties of a unique red tea formula with a scientifically based diet and exercise program.
