Based on your answers to the Body Type Quiz,
As a Body Type A, you have the slowest metabolism of any of the other body types. The rate of your metabolism is the primary consideration in how your body gains or loses weight. Often a Type A has struggled their entire lives to keep their weight down with no success. The good news is: On this plan you can finally stop "dieting," stop starving yourself and start using food to speed up your metabolism. And, here is the best part: typically, Body Type A's see faster and greater results than any of the other body types. Once you start eating according to your Custom Eating Plan, you'll begin to increase your metabolic rate and start losing pounds and inches faster than you ever thought possible.
This is what it said:
Your Customized Eating Plan will use foods specifically chosen to work with your body chemistry in an accelerated eating schedule to “jumpstart” your metabolism so your body sheds fat quickly. For example, your body is more sensitive to certain types of carbohydrates (fruits and starchy veggies) that will grind your metabolism to a halt. To lose weight, Body Type A's should avoid "simple" carbs which often taste sweet, such as candy, sweet fruits, juices plus processed grains found in bread and pasta. You would do best sticking with the most "complex" carbs like potatoes, yams and sweet potatoes and very low sugar fruits like grapefruit, peaches and berries. By eating the right combination of foods for your Body Type, you’ll be able to stop starving, start eating more and lose body fat faster than you ever thought possible.
The ratio of fat and muscle in your body reveals much about your metabolism and body chemistry. Metabolism is essentially the rate at which your body converts food into energy. When you eat something, your body will use some of the food as fuel, eliminate the elements it has no use for, and store all the rest as body fat. The faster your metabolism, the more quickly your body uses food for energy and the less it stores as fat. With a very slow metabolism, your body converts food into energy much less efficiently and more of it gets stored as fat. Basically, if you want to lose fat you need to speed up your metabolism.
