gonadal type

gonadal type

Fringe medicine
An endocrine profile based on a hypothesis advanced by E Abravanel, MD, that each person has a dominant endocrine organ, and that each type of person craves and overeats certain foods in an effort to stimulate that organ. All gonadal types are women, and are believed to crave fats; gonadal-type women gain weight in the cellulite-prone regions (buttock and upper legs), and are advised to consume more vegetables, leaner meats and red clover tea.
