Eat Right for Your Metabolismby Felicia Drury Kliment
Synopses & Reviews
An easy-to-follow, customizable diet based on metabolic type that helps you get rid of excess fat and enjoy a healthy life
A diet that produces amazing results for someone else may fail miserably for you. Why? Researcher and nutritional consultant Felicia Drury Kliment explains that since people have different metabolic types, eating the wrong foods can lead to poor digestion, which causes weight gain and ill health. In Eat Right for Your Metabolism, you'll learn how to determine your metabolism type and customize a diet that helps you meet your goals for weight loss and long-lasting health.
"Kliment (The Acid-Alkaline Balance Diet) expands on her previous work to further pinpoint how the body's acid-alkaline balance, as well as issues regarding digestion, can disrupt metabolism, cause weight gain and initiate a series of other health concerns. The author purports that there are three main metabolism types — meat eaters, grain eaters and those with balanced metabolism — and that all can benefit from eating the right foods. To support her theories, Kliment cobbles together a mass of frequently unrelated medical studies, drawing conclusions about what they mean. In one instance, she links teens who drink milk, a theory that milk causes a growth spurt which in turn releases a growth hormone, and published medical research showing that taller people are at risk for certain cancers, to conclude that teens who drink milk are increasing their risk of cancer. In another instance, she suggests that eating cooked foods raises levels of stress hormones, 'causing the body to produce more nutrients than it needs' which leads to 'unwanted pounds.' In addition to such examples, Kliment gives 26 recipes and a list of seven-day eating plans. Although her suggestions may resonate with some, in general, the book lacks cohesion, and its examples are too scattered to make real sense."
