The Fast Metabolism Book Review
Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for Shespeaks/Fast Metabolism Diet. Shespeak.com sent me a copy of the book to read and write a review about the book.
A few months ago Shespenks.com sent me a diet book called “The Fast Metabolism Diet” by Haylie Pomroy who is a highly respected
nutritionist due to her very successful diet program that has helped so many people lose up to twenty pounds in four weeks. I was
supposed to do this diet along with this review but I already take good care of my body and mind by working out, eating normal
healthy meals, and by drinking lots of water. Two years ago I decide to stop dieting and make a life style change. What is the
different between a diet and a life style change?
The difference between a diet and a life style change is instead of having my weight yo-yoing between 10lbs and 20lbs by being on
fad diets I decide to work out four times a week and eat normal healthy meals to stay on a healthy normal weight that I am happy
with. I wanting to live my life by enjoying it not by worrying about how much I am going to weigh in the morning. That is what diet does, they make you worry and think about food way too much.
If you really want to lose weight and keep if off by doing this program then you have to tell yourself that you are making a life
style change and you will not go back to your bad eating habits. The truth is you can’t just do this diet for four weeks and all
your weight problems will be over with. To keep the weight off for good, you will have to eat right and workout for the rest of
your life and for a lot of people they don’t like that concept. A lot of people don’t like to work out and they rather eat a whole
cake then just a piece. A lot of people don’t want to try. I’m not trying to be mean or anything, I’m just being honest on what I have seen and learn.
I also believe that when woman see the word fast and diet on the same book of course people are going to buy it because they think
it’s a fast way out of their troubles and when they read it those women will be disappointed. The reason why? It’s a lot of work.
You have to fellow her rules and her plan. You can’t have coffee, alcohol, or any diet soda. For the first time you do this diet
you cannot cheat at all because she says then your metabolism won’t heal right, but then after you lose whatever how much you
wanted then you can have a little piece of cake if you wanted to.
Just like Pomroy I believe in eating a colorful diet and eating breakfast in the first half hour you wake up. We believe to eat
three meals and two snacks a day. She does say things in her book that are helpful to changing your lifestyle but her diet I’m not
so sure about it. She believes in eating a colorful diet in Phases but for not every day.
This is how her diet plan works:
Phase 1 (Monday-Tuesday):
Lots of carbs and fruits
Phase 2 (Wednesday-Thursday):
Lots of proteins and veggies
Phase 3 (Friday- Sunday):
All of the above, plus healthy fats and oils
I’m not saying this is a bad plan because it has helped many people lose weight so it says in her book but I believe in eating a
colorful diet every day. Eat your fruits, veggies, good crabs, and proteins every day. It’s good for you and why can’t that kind of
diet help fix people metabolism? Why do people need to lose the weight so fast? I thought the slower you lose the weight the less likely the weight would come back.
One more thing I don’t agreed about his diet program is her work out plan. I mean it’s good for people who don’t really workout but
it is really a pain for the ones who do and love it. I love to work out because it eases my stress and gives me energy and I am also a runner.
This is her plan:
On Phase 1 (Monday - Tuesday)
Just do cardio on one or both of those days
On Phase 2 (Wednesday – Thursday)
Just weight lifting
On Phase 3 (Friday – Sunday)
Yoga or get a message
I’m sorry I cannot just do cardio for three days because I am training for a half marathon.
I not trying to say this diet is bad or anything, it just doesn’t work for me. Every body’s body is different; I sometimes don’t
understand why we have to have this miracle diet to get people to lose weight. I just highly believe in eating a normal diet. If you
are craving sugar why not pick up an apple or any of your favorite fruits. Why can’t people make small choices every day that will help them in the long run? Why do we need these big break though diet to help get people to motivate them to help better themselves? People should want to better themselves for them and for their family so they can live a long and highly life. In my conclusion I believe if a person makes small choices in their diet everyday if will help them in a big way in the long run.
