The Gonzalez Metabolic Type Test

Learn what foods are best for YOU and what foods YOU should avoid

Ever wonder why some people thrive on a vegetarian diet and others thrive on a more carnivore diet? Or why your best friend craves a green salad and you dream about steak? Nicholas Gonzalez M.D. understood that people feel best when they consume the right foods for their bodies and feel less well when they eat the wrong foods.

Dr. Gonzalez treated thousands of patients from around the world with his individualized nutritional enzyme protocol based on the dietary concept that different people need different types of diets. His nutritional approach and metabolic typing is grounded in the scientific work of Dr. Weston A. Price, Dr. Francis Pottenger and Dr. William Donald Kelley.   One of the pillars of The Gonzalez Protocol® is determining your metabolic diet type (the others include individual supplementation and detoxification). If you want to better understand the critical role of metabolic typing and balancing your autonomic nervous system, watch this short video of Dr. Gonzalez and read this essay by Dr. Gonzalez as he explains the science behind why diets aren't One Size Fits All.

"As long as we put the right fuel into our bodies by eating the right food for our metabolic type, the autonomic system will be in balance, both branches and the associated organs and glands will function efficiently, the body will work beautifully, and our health will be ideal. However, with the wrong fuel, the autonomic system will go out of balance, it will function less efficiently, the organs and glands will not work well together and disease follows." - Nicholas Gonzalez, M.D.

This self-test shows which of Dr. Gonzalez's seven basic metabolic diets is healthiest for your metabolic type. Upon completing this 96 multiple-choice test online you will see a link to your results and receive an email revealing your Gonzalez Metabolic Type with an 18-page, illustrated nutritional plan and shopping list.

Metabolic Typing: Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez's metabolic diets range from Extreme Vegetarian (sympathetic dominant) to Balanced to Extreme Carnivore (parasympathetic dominant) - all with different combinations of fruit, vegetables, grains and proteins. Answer the questions based on your current state of mind and body. The multiple-choice questions relate to your personality, food cravings, sleep habits and medical diagnoses and do not require bloodwork. This test combines specific questions utilized by Dr. Gonzalez and Dr. Kelley in their clinical assessment. It was created in collaboration with Kettle Moraine LTD. and the College Health Store who manage Dr. Kelley's procedures for Metabolic Self-Testing. Together, we seek to help people around the world learn the best diet for their metabolic type and achieve optimum health.

This test provides a nutritional plan recommendation not a supplement or detoxification plan as a Gonzalez Protocol with customized diet, supplement and detoxification protocols can only be designed by a Gonzalez Certified Doctor. Those with serious diseases should always follow their doctor's dietary advice. These Gonzalez metabolic diets are NOT cancer treatments. You will receive one of seven different Gonzalez metabolic diets and there are limitations to how customized they can be. For example, you have a gluten intolerance or a food allergy, you should avoid these foods even if they are listed on your metabolic diet.
