The Metabolic Factor Quiz is a short online survey that helps to determine the taker’s unique fat-burning type and the best Metabolic Factor Blueprint for that person.
The Metabolic Factor is a popular diet that works with the body’s hormones to help those who have failed on other diets lose weight. And it all starts with a quiz that reveals your body’s fat-burning type. If you’re interested in this particular diet, you may be wondering what this quiz is all about, how long it takes, and what comes next. I took the quiz myself, and I’ll tell you all about it so you know what to expect.
How To Take The Quiz
There aren’t any difficult questions. It takes about two minutes or so. You’ll be asked about your gender, age, eating habits, activity level, and how quickly you want to see those awesome results you’ve heard about.
When you complete the quiz, you’ll watch a video that tells you about your fat-burning type and explains what effect it has on how your body processes fat. In this video, you’ll learn why it’s been so hard for you to lose weight on other diets. You’ll also get a peek at what you can expect from the Metabolic Factor diet if you choose to go ahead with it. Check out my review of the Metabolic Factor diet here.
The Four Fat-Burning Types
Most diets are what you call “cookie-cutter” diets. They advise basically the same eating plan and exercises for everyone. This may work for some people, but it can’t really work for all who try the diet. And if they actually do work for everyone, most people are going to see slow or lackluster results. Different people process fat in different ways. It’s all about metabolism.
In a nutshell, Metabolic Factor works by activating your metabolically active tissues, or MAT. These tissues make up only five percent of your body, but they make all the difference in the world if you want to burn fat. The way your MAT works determines your fat-burning type. And, of course, your fat-burning type determines the specific Metabolic Factor path you’ll take if you decide to go that route.
Let’s look at the four fat-burning types. This is sort of a peek at what you’re going to get out of taking the quiz.
People at this level have a slow metabolism. But that’s not all. They rely mostly on carbs and sugar for energy. Basically, the body doesn’t want to burn fat for energy. But it still needs the energy to function. So what happens? The body craves sugar and simple carbohydrates.
Carbs are an excellent source of energy. It’s pretty much instantly available to the body. But any carbs that aren’t burned almost right away are stored by the body to be burned later. And would you care to guess how it’s stored? That’s right, it’s stored as fat. And fat from carbs tends to go right to a level 1 person’s belly, butt or thighs. That's where man-boobs come from too, by the way.
So you exercise to burn that fat away. But your metabolism is slow. It doesn’t want to burn that fat. It wants sugar and carbs. Do you see the problem? People at level 1 may be stuck in an endless cycle of carb cravings and fat storage. Energy is usually a problem at this level, too. You may feel sluggish all the time. That’s because you almost never have enough fuel in your body.
People at this level have a somewhat quicker metabolism than those stuck at level 1, but losing weight can still be a struggle. At this level, about 20 percent of calories burned are fat calories. The rest comes from sugar and carbs. Carb cravings are usually a problem, especially after exercise. When the body’s fuel gauge gets close to “E”, you want something that will fill it back up quickly. That’s carbs. And those carbs turn to fat.
Most people at this level say that diets they’ve tried haven’t worked because exercise won’t burn their fat. That makes sense when you consider that 80 percent of their energy comes from sugar.
This is the level I’m currently at, according to the quiz. At this level, the metabolism is what I would call average. Left to its own devices, the body gets 40 percent of its energy from fat. People here usually don’t have too big a problem losing weight. But it can still be difficult. I don’t know if I was at level 3 years ago when I went and lost some weight around my midsection, but I know it wasn’t easy.
I envy you if you’re at this level. These are the people who can eat just about anything they want to and never gain an ounce. The metabolism is in high gear. Up to 90 percent of the body’s energy can come from fat. But some people at this level are still overweight. Losing that weight will be much easier than for someone at level 1,2 or 3, but it can still be something of a challenge.
What Comes Next?
The quiz itself tells you which one of four fat-burning types your body is. You’ll learn about how your body processes fat. But that information can’t really help you lose weight. Sure, you’ll have a better understanding of how your metabolism works, but that’s it.
So what’s the point of the quiz? The fat-burning type you just learned about in the post-quiz video decides your Metabolic Factor Blueprint. That’s a customized diet that works with the way your metabolism deals with fat and carbs, rather than against it.
Is It Worth The Time?
Just the stuff you’ll learn about your metabolism in the video you watch after taking the quiz is worth a couple of minutes it takes to actually answer the questions. So, yes, it’s totally worth it. And it’s necessary if you want to go the Metabolic Factor route. But you’ll still get something out of it even if you don’t sign up for the diet.
You won’t have to answer any personal questions, other than what is necessary to determine your fat-burning type. You will be asked for your email address. That’s so you can get more info about Metabolic Factor. Again, that’s necessary if you do want to take the Metabolic Factor path. It’s a digital program, after all.
The Metabolic Factor Quiz Bottom Line
Taking the Metabolic Factor quiz is easy, quick, costs nothing, and leaves you with no obligation to sign up for Metabolic Factor. But you can still learn a lot about your body and its metabolism. And you’ll learn more about Metabolic Factor. You won’t be pressured into anything, but you’ll get a good idea of what it’s like and how it can help you meet your weight loss goals.
Don’t worry about having to give up any personal information. You don’t need to give your credit card number or anything. It’s just some questions about your lifestyle, diet, and your weight-loss goals.
