Abstract

People's nutritional requirements are individualized, and what makes a workable controlled diet for overweight subjects is worthy of further study. The objective of this study was to analyze whether the Metabolic Typing® test can be a guide for diet recommendations and also to evaluate the effects on weight loss in these subjects. Thirty-three overweight recruits were treated with this program, and each had 3 h of the metabolic typing test, 1 h of dietary consultation, and 4 weeks of keeping a website journal regarding daily food intake. The body-mass index (BMI), weight, fat mass, and waistline were measured before and after the program, and then results were compared. The results showed that regardless of gender. Metabolic Type® (autonomic-sympathetic, parasympathetic, and slow or fast oxidizer), and diet plan (groups I or II) , all showed significant weight-loss, fat-loss, and waistline reduction (p
