The Metabolic Diet was created by Dr. Mauro G. Di Pasquale. He is a licensed physician in Ontario, Canada. Dr. Pasquale has been involved in the sports world for over 20 years, even competing as a power lifter in the 1976 world championships, winning the event. He used to be the former medical director for the WWF (World Wide Wrestling Federation) and is currently the president of the United World Powerlifting Federation.

Product Features

The diet itself has a two phase approach. There is the low carb Assessment Phase and the Moderate Carb Assessment Phase. The low carb Assessment Phase is more of the jump in feet-first kind of approach to see if you can handle the low carb lifestyle. The Moderate Carb Assessment Phase isn’t so restrictive. The idea of the diet is to eat a low-carb lifestyle 5 days a week and then 2 days a week, however you want.


There are no ingredients in this aside from foods you would normally consider proteins and not carbohydrates. A lot of what this diet is about seems to be very similar to the Atkins Diet.

  • There’s lots of information on line about the diet itself.
  • The doctor who’s created the diet has a lot of experience in the sports and nutrition fields.
  • The doctor has his own website to promote the diet and to get the tools and information you need.
  • Disadvantages

  • Despite the low carb craze of the last few years, we are now becoming more aware that a well-rounded diet of all the food groups seems to be a better approach than a low carb option.
  • After reading through the some of the diet guidelines, there seems to be a lack of concern for saturated fats, which are linked with heart issues, and considering that heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the USA, we should be considerate of the saturated fat we consume.
  • His experience in the power-lifting world doesn’t necessarily make for knowing all there is to know about proper nutrition.
  • Conclusion

    Sensible eating, exercise, and proper hydration all are part of a good diet. While there is the support of a doctor backing up the whole plan, it seems so similar to the Atkins diet that we have to take note. We’ve seen the low-carb craze come and go and we have to pay attention to the amount of saturated fat in our diets. This diet seems to encourage full fat versions of dairy products and makes no real mention of lean proteins over any ordinary protein. We also think it’s a problem that there are 2 days during the week where you can eat anything. While we do advocate being able to treat yourself once in awhile, taking 2 whole days each week to gorge yourself on this diet isn’t exactly responsible.
