Type B Foods for a Six Week Body Makeover

By Martita Veguilla ; Updated July 27, 2017

The Six Week Makeover is a personalized weight-loss program, aimed at working with your body type and shape. A “body blueprint” is taken and identifies your body’s metabolism. According to the diet creator Micheal Thurmond, there are five body types: A through E. Each diet focuses on changing your metabolism with the types of food you eat. Type B body types tend to have naturally muscular bodies underneath the fat.

Proteins

If you're a Type B, eat lean meats such as chicken, turkey breast, shrimp, tuna and crab. Avoid red meats as it only adds to your muscle. Trim all fat from the meats. You can also have eggs without the yolk. The yolk is fatty and Type B requires less fat.

Fruits

Avoid all high-sugar fruits such as banana, and watermelon. You can have grapefruit, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. These berries have a low sugar-to-fiber ratio and are best for Type B. You can also have grapefruit juice.

Brown Rice

You should avoid white rice, which has no nutritional value. Brown rice has an abundance of vitamin B, iron, healthy fats and enough fiber to help you digest the rest of your food quickly.

Vegetables

Carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, chives, potatoes, yams, spinach, green beans, mushrooms and cabbage are good for Type Bs. The best vegetables are those filled with iron that have a lower sugar content. Potatoes are an exception; they are complex and are good as a whole.
