Ashley Tomasini – I Lost Half My Body Weight
“Before finding Metabolic Typing, I was over 300 lbs, and I didn’t like how I felt. My clothes were uncomfortable, I never had the energy to exercise, and I was embarrassed about my body image that I didn’t want to get out of the house, no socializing, and no drawing extra attention to myself. I thought I was eating healthy by eating cereal for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, and pasta for dinner. But then I found out my Metabolic Type (Balanced Autonomic Type), and in 9 months I lost 150 lbs! Now I’m doing zumba, getting out more, and I love how I feel. Thank You!”
Tony Carvello – I Refuse To Have Diabetes
“I played a lot of college and semi-pro football, have always been in good condition, and am 70 years old. One day I went to the doctor and the doctor said to me, “Guess what you have?” (and I’ve never had ANYTHING). He says, “You have Type 2 Diabetes.” I told him quite frankly, “I refuse to have Type 2 Diabetes, and I don’t want to take medication because I’m in the insurance business and I see what it can do to people.” So he instructed me to go see a nutritionist who can help me lose weight without dieting. And that’s exactly what I did. I went on a disciplined regimen eating for my Metabolic Type (Parasympathetic Type) and after 8 weeks I went back to my doctor, and he said, “Guess what.” And I said, “What now?” And he said, “You do not have Diabetes or symptoms at this time. Whatever you are doing, keep doing it.”
John Reilly – Changing the Status Quo in the Gym World
“I’ve been a personal trainer since 1989, currently own 5 Anytime Fitnesses in Louisiana and Arkansas, and teach health and fitness at a local college. I thought I needed to keep eating high amounts of protein to put on muscle since that’s the status quo in our industry. However, I knew deep down something wasn’t quite right. My energy was low, and I was at a plateau in getting results. I joined Metabolic Me, took the Metabolic Typing test, and found out that I am a Sympathetic Dominant Type, which means I need to limit my protein and fat and eat a lot more healthy carbs like starchy vegetables and juicing. Immediately, after eating this new way, my energy has returned, and I put on 8 lbs of muscle, which I’m very happy with at 43 years old. Now I teach all of my gym members and students that there is no one-size-fits all diet plan. We have to find out what works best for each of us to get the results we want.”
Cindy Joyner – See How Simple This Can Be!
“My health challenge prior to finding Metabolic Typing was exercising at the gym, not seeing any results, and knowing that I probably wasn’t doing the best I could do nutritionally. One of the first things I was taught in this program is to not worry about counting the calories anymore. That was scary, because up until now, that’s how we’ve been trained… “It’s all about the calories” But for me, I always knew that eating simpler was easier and the right thing to do. I think I just needed to be told. This program is just so different. It’s not about points. It’s not about calories. It’s about the food is good. And once you do it, you’ve got it down. You go into a restaurant, you know exactly what you can have. It’s really nice. And now, not only am I doing this program but my daughter is also doing this program. She’ll call me excited and say “Do you know what I get to eat?!? I never got to eat this food!” And I tell her “See how simple this can be! This is what it is, this is how you eat, you follow it, you’re going to do great!”
Dani Conway – The Journey from Client To Advisor
“I started with MT almost 8 years ago and it has truly changed my life. I’ve been on every diet imaginable and counted every measure of food possible from calories, to proteins, fats, carbs to points to ……. well, you name it and I counted them. I’m 5’4″ and upon beginning MT my weight was around 160 and body fat likely well above the 30% mark. I don’t have exact numbers because I was always ashamed to pay too much close attention to my stats. I struggled with food and sugar cravings, constant hunger, low energy and never feeling satisfied.
I can proudly say now that my weight is 124 and body fat is down to 14.9%!! That’s all great in terms of numbers but more importantly, my cravings are gone, my energy is stable and my life is not consumed by worrying about what diet I’m going to make an attempt at next. Years ago I never thought achieving this level of health was possible!”

Kristen Tyng – It’s How We Feed Our Family
“My challenge was that I had two small children who were exhausting me, and I had some weight to lose that I really couldn’t get off. Joining this program was the beginning to finding a whole different way of functioning in my life. I immediately, once I started eating for my Type, had more energy, and I started looking at food differently. I was asked questions that no one had ever asked me before in a nutrition program like, “How does this food make you feel when you eat it?” and “How do you function in your daily life?” All of these things, along with taking the Metabolic Typing test, focused so much on me as an individual. I’m asked, “Ok, what do YOU need in order to be healthy, feel energized, feel well?” It’s a new way of looking at things.
This structure is really helpful because you finally know what works and doesn’t work for your body, so as you’re planning your meals, it’s actually easier. I can go out to a restaurant, and I cook at home, because now I know the right proteins, fats, and carbohydrates for your body (and there seems to be an infinite number of ways to put them together), plus I use the cookbook for my Type.
I later brought my husband in and got him Typed as well, and that has helped our family a lot, because the two of us having the same approach and the same understanding has really changed the way we function and how we feed our family. It’s no longer just mom coming in and saying “here you go, now we are all eating this.” Now we are understanding how everyone is different in how we take care of ourselves and nourish our bodies. I felt that it was extremely successful for me in my life and my family’s life, and the wonderful byproduct of that is losing some weight as well.
When you follow Metabolic Typing, it works. It makes you feel like the food you are eating feels good in your body. It fuels it wonderfully. I feel more vibrant and more healthy than I ever have, and I think that in itself is all the evidence I need to know that if I stay on this path, I’m going to be good to go for a long time.
I really would recommend this to anybody, even if it’s not a diet you are looking for, if it’s just a way to remain healthy for the rest of your life. I think this is a fantastic approach. It looks at every individual, and it really looks at what their body needs. I don’t think anyone can go wrong with that.”
Dr. Wayne Miller – Excellent Results for Myself and My Patients
“Prior to finding Metabolic Typing, I would get tired in the afternoon, feeling like I’m going into a coma the first hour after lunch while trying to see patients. One of the most significant things I discovered in this program was how much of an impact changing certain foods made on me, like having a snack of peanuts versus almonds or cheese. These small changes made a huge difference on how I felt throughout the day. It’s so nice now that you don’t feel sick when you get home after going out to eat. You shouldn’t be punished for that!
I understand now how I need to eat and what I need to eat, and it works. After all, it’s food! So it’s really not a diet, it’s a lifestyle. People that accept this, accept responsibility, and are willing to follow through with it have all been successful and are happy with their results. That’s what it’s all about. This is a natural holistic wellness program for my patients, and it’s nice to have that alternative for them.”
Michelle K. – No More Diet Food!
“I learned the true meaning of a healthy lifestyle. I’ve lost 62 lbs! I have more energy, my cravings are gone, my skin is radiant and my husband is thrilled. Most importantly, NO MORE DIET FOOD!”
John Donovan – You Just FEEL It.
“My biggest challenge before Metabolic Typing was not really understanding what I’m supposed to eat. I finally decided that I don’t really know what I’m doing, and I need someone who lives this every day. Through this program, it was the first time I ever really understood what I am eating. Low fat snacks were not the answer. I’m no longer “Living To Eat”, I’m “Eating To Live.” When I go to grab some food, I’m actually asking myself, “Do I really need this?” It makes you question, “Am I eating mindlessly, or am I eating mindfully and really paying attention to what I’m eating?” And this stops you from overeating. I feel like I’m not a slave to the food anymore, it’s the other way around… the food is actually serving me now. It’s allowing me to function better in my day. It’s the first time in my whole life I’ve felt like this… I just wish I knew this when I was 20.
But it’s not just about what to eat, but also how to eat it. It’s actually kind of fun now putting the meals together, because it’s no longer just gobble up everything on your plate, you are actually investing yourself in your meal. This really gets you thinking about what you are eating, which makes me not eat as much. It’s pretty informative to me, after all this time, that what you put in your body really matters.
The changes already, in everything, in energy level, in awareness, in size… The numbers are great, everyone wants to lose weight, but the difference in how you feel is amazing. I’m on a good road. It’s nice to feel this way.
Bottom line, if I don’t do this, it’s on me. And that is one of the most fascinating things about this… it’s up to me. It’s me making the food choices. So if I fall off this, it’s crazy because it’s me. I should never have to go to somebody else or do another program because this is just me following what I know to be the right foods for me. The proof is in the pudding. You just FEEL it. When you feel it, it’s a pretty impressive thing. When you feel that difference in yourself, it’s kind of like a switch goes off in your head. It’s pretty awesome.”
