Metabolic Flexibility is something most of us don’t think about when we’re considering a diet plan of the concept of flexibility in general.

of eating. The typical marketing rhetoric finds one or two food groups or perhaps a macro nutrient (like carbs in the atkins approach) to demonize and lay all of the ills and evils of our western society on these few nutrients.

The dietary advice that follows is to cut all of said nutrient out of your diet forever.

This same tone is taking in blood type diets, or diets that purport the concept that a person has a ‘metabolic type’. These theories are great marketing speak but have no basis in physiology or science.

All humans are highly adaptable and can eat whatever foods happen to be available at a given time.

The concept that there is a right way to eat, or that you have a metabolic type is naive and a convenient argument to make in modern western affluent societies where you can just stroll down to the grocery store and decide on a whim that today you will be a protein eater!

Most people around the world do not have such a luxury and must eat what is available, and most cultures around the world have their fair share of vigorously healthy people as well and this is because of metabolic flexibility and adaptability.

Your body can learn to eat and function on whatever food you can give it. In our societies we have the good fortune to experiment with seemingly limitless food combinations and mix and match just about any degree of foods, meal timing and meal composition we wish.
