METABOLIC TYPE “C”
Metabolic type C…..
As a type C you crave both salty and sweet. This really depends on how you are managing stress and what you are eating. You don’t ever have a strong craving for one over the other, but you do get cravings.
You can gain weight easily and struggle at first to lose it. But once you find your way, you can create change quite easily.
You can get aggravated and irritable under stress which can mess with your weight loss. Managing stress is going to be key.
You metabolize carbs, fat and protein equally. So eating balanced meals throughout the day is going to be a win win for your body type.
Focus on hormonal balance by eating more omega 3 fats than any other (seeds, nuts, fish)
Eat low to moderated amounts of protein and see how your reacts. I find with this body type fluctuating with lower protein weeks and then moderate helps with fat burning and giving your body the change it needs to flourish.
Your sleep is moderate so you need to be careful not to throw it off. So always keep your carbs moderate in every meal and avoid caffeine later in the day.
You seem to do better on warm foods and room temperature water. Hot foods and really cold foods tend to bother you and your body doesn’t respond well to extreme temperatures in food.
Avoid spicey foods and use more spices like cinnamon, coriander, fennel and cardamom.
Type C’s like variation in intensity. Rest days are essential and you do ok with cardio as long as you keep it to 30 mins and only a couple times a week. Using HIIT or tabatas are great because the time is shorter, keeping you in a balanced state.
Adding movement flows and yoga is great for joint mobility which tends to be lacking in Type C’s.
