9780060393908: Different Bodies, Different Diets: Introducing the Revolutionary 25 Body Type System

Are you tall or short, thin or stocky, muscular or wiry? Do you tend to gain weight in your upper or lower body or everywhere at once? Do you have uncontrollable food cravings that contribute to your weight gain pattern?

Different Bodies, Different Diets shows you conclusively that each individual body type requires a different set of rules to live by. We don't all look the same and we don't even like the same foods, so why would we all be able to lose weight on the same diet?

You've probably seen lots of diets come and go, and if you're like most people, you've probably tried more than you care to admit. Dr. Carolyn Mein, the celebrated bionutritionist, has spent the last twenty years researching and refining her 25 Body Type System and has helped tens of thousands of clients achieve and maintain their ideal weight. Now she demonstrates that healthy weight loss is not dependent on willpower is dependent on following a customized diet for your individual body. This groundbreaking new book offers: The fundamentals of Body Typing and how to apply themThe 25 Classic Types, illustrated with more than 200 photographs showing distinguishing features and additional characteristicsSpecific details about each of the Body Types, including physical composition, weight gain tendencies, essences, psychological profiles, and customized dietary plansProven remedies for handling food cravingsAdvice on scheduling meals for the best resultsExtensive food lists and weekly menusBody type categorization of more than fifty celebrities

In addition to learning the particular foods you should eat and the foods you should avoid, you will enjoy knowing more about the psychological and emotional characteristics of your type. Are you a person who needs to be in control of any situation? Do you create harmony or discord when you enter a room? Do you often seek outside approval or validation? Find out how these tendencies provide valuable insights into your eating habits and body type.

Different Bodies, Different Diets puts an end to the one-diet-fits-all myth and offers you accurate guidelines for eating for your individual type. Finally, a realistic approach that makes sense of the diet jungle!

Review:

"Losing weight is as easy as finding your body type," asserts Carolyn Mein on the cover of her coffee-table-size diet book. Based on 20 years of research as an applied kinesiologist and bionutritionist, Mein concludes that each human is born with a dominant gland, organ, or system that corresponds to one of 25 specific body types. She also believes each body type manifests itself in unique physical characteristics and psychological traits. Here, Mein attempts to help readers identify their own body type, understand its specific needs (according to her empirical research), and implement a diet tailored to meeting those needs.

Opening and scanning the book proves great fun, especially for those who love delving into parallel studies like astrology or numerology. Trouble is, the task of accurately identifying a body type is easier said than done. As readers peruse hundreds of black-and-white photos of scantily clad adult bodies, "unique" doesn't always look so unique--even with help from the corresponding personality profiles. So, while Mein earnestly strives to offer a solution to the one-diet-fits-all myth, her own theory begs the question: Are we all so predictable and categorical? The flip side, of course, is that anyone who finds a perfect match of physical and psychological traits (for instance, an "Adrenal Female" who has a solid boyish figure, thrives on excitement, is competitive and ever in charge) will receive very specific marching orders from Dr. Mein. To each body type, she dedicates about six pages of notes, including a lengthy personality profile, guidelines for dietary intake, healthy and unhealthy foods, ideal meal scheduling, and a sample one-week menu. --Liane Thomas
