As covered in the book, there are two different types of metabolisms. More specifically, the body will lean towards one type of nervous system or the other. To make things simple, one is referred to as the “EXCITED” nervous system and the other as the “PASSIVE” nervous system. In short, one will do better with a more vegetarian-like diet (EXCITED), while the other does best with a mostly carnivorous, meat-eating diet (PASSIVE). How do you determine which one you are? Simple. If you answer yes to ANY of these questions, you are leaning more towards the EXCITED type (more vegetarian) - If you answer NO to every question, you are leaning towards the PASSIVE type (more carnivorous): (1) If you eat late at night, do you have trouble with digestion and/or with sleeping?, (2) Do you find it hard for your body to digest red meats? (3) Do you have trouble sleeping in general? Or, do you wake up easily? (4) Do you feel bad physically when you consume saturated fats (like butter, heavy whipping cream, etc)?
Here’s Troy’s story using the recommendations in the book, “The Power of Your Metabolism” by Frank Suarez to lose weight: ”I tried other diets but none of them ever worked. So, in Feb. 2014, I decided to start learning more about the metabolism, which was when I came across the book, ‘The Power of Your Metabolism’ by Frank Suarez. Five months later, I have lost 2 pant sizes and can run regularly! I haven’t reached my goal yet, but I now have the right knowledge to reach it! Plus, I no longer have to take my medication for high blood pressure!”

TIP: Avoid letting yourself go hungry. When you let your body go hungry, it will get the impression that there is shortage of food and will slow down its own functions (the metabolism) as a way of surviving. Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to eat a ton of small meals throughout the day. Instead, make sure that (1) you have a large breakfast high in protein, (2) your meals are big enough enough to keep you feeling full, (3) you’re not consuming too many refined carbs/sugar and (4) if you DO get hungry, have a high-protein, low-carb snack, like nuts or cheese. If you prefer fruit, go with an apple or strawberries! Remember, food is ENERGY!
"There is a popular saying that expresses what our food intake should be like. The saying goes “we should eat breakfast like a king, eat lunch like a prince, and eat dinner like a beggar”. This saying is true… Foods are made of condensed energy. Eating too heartily at night forces an entrance of energy (food) to the body and going to sleep lowers your energy use, which forces a “storage mode” (fat). It is an aspect of pure logic; dinner should be like a beggar, not like a king."

😂😂Traditional diets have the unfortunate characteristic of being full of restrictions. Naturally, anything that we “cannot have” many times becomes something we REALLY want. What we suggest is something that will gradually guide you towards a healthy lifestyle without requiring a ton of discipline. Instead of restricting yourself from the foods you love, try proportioning out your meals so that great part of what you consume consists of foods that will HELP your metabolism (i.e. - meats, veggies, etc), as with the #2x1diet. Keep any foods that wont help (i.e. - breads, sugar, soda, candy, etc) to no more than 1/3rd or less of your meal!
