metabolic typing


An eclectic (read, non-scientific) method proposed by Nicholas J Gonzalez, MD, for classifying humans into broad categories based on metabolic types created by Gonzalez

Per Gonzalez, sympathetic dominant types should eat a primarily–80% vegetarian diet; parasympathetic dominants should consume primarily fatty meats, and dairy products–50% of total in their diet. There are no peer-reviewed studies to even vaguely suggest metabolic typing has any validity. 

Metabolic types

Sympathetic dominant Those with an efficient sympathetic nervous system 

Parasympathetic dominant Those with an efficient parasympathetic nervous system 

Balanced type Those whose sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems are in complete balance
