The Fast Metabolism Diet Book ReviewMay 17, 2013
Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks and The Fast Metabolism Diet. I received The Fast Metabolism Diet Book for this review. All opinions are mine.
The Fast Metabolism Diet claims to help you lose 20 pounds in 28 days. That is quite a lot of loss for a little time but it has been done by many and although I do not need to lose that much, a few pounds would be welcome and learning why this diet has helped so many is the reason why I signed up for this campaign. Dieting should be a way of life, not a thing you do here and there and the tips in this book are priceless, along with some fabulous recipes with vegetarian and gluten-free options.
The Fast Metabolism Diet in a nutshell is:
PHASE ONE (Monday-Tuesday): Lots of carbs and fruits;
PHASE TWO (Wednesday-Thursday): Lots of proteins and veggies;
PHASE THREE (Friday-Saturday-Sunday): All of the above, plus healthy fats and oils;
Repeat for four weeks!
Cons for me:
*No sugar allowed - "Reach for stevia or xylitol instead."
*No Coffee allowed - "explore caffeine-free coffee substitutes."
*No dairy; No soy; No wheat; No corn; No dried fruit or fruit juices
*No alcohol allowed - "Save your alcoholic drink for the evening, and balance it out with a protein-rich meal. Opt for organic, sulfite-free wines or top-shelf liquor, and always drink eight extra ounces of water for every drink."
*Water, water everywhere. This diet would like you to drink half your body weight in ounces... every day!
I love that there is no calorie counting with this diet and that Haylie wants you to eat three meals a day with at least two snacks! While most of the requests are not something I am going to do. I will however, incorporate all the tips and wonderful recipes I can into my daily routine for proper food habits that I should be using anyway and of which I can teach to my children.
