My Blog

My blog has morphed over the years into different things. It is a place to learn about saving money, product reviews, cooking, gardening, and homesteading. It can take you to whatever has my attention at the moment and then back to the day to day. I hope you will learn something here and come back often.

The Fast Metabolism Diet

Today was day 1 on the Fast metabolism Diet.  I received a free copy of this book to read, review, and blog about.  I don't think I could give an accurate review of the book without actually trying it, right?

I must admit, the author, Haylie Pomroy, sucked me right in on the very first page of the book.  The book starts...

    I am the metabolism whisperer.
       I know why you can't do it ~ why your body doesn't respond anymore to the relentless dieting, the           mind-numbing exercise, the low-carb or low-fat or high-protein diets.  I know why you aren't losing weight...and I know how to fix it.

I thought, WOW!, she must be spying on me!  I have, like so many others, tried every diet, read lots of books, experimented with different types of exercise, only to remain overweight.  In my most recent attempt, I was eating 1200 "healthy" calories a day and doing an hour of zumba 3-4 times a week.  I was feeling really good and gaining weight!  How does that happen?  I don't understand it.  After a few week, I re-injured my knee and had to stop zumba so I stopped eating right.  Do you want to know what happened?  I LOST weight!!  I was eating Reese's!  I don't understand.

So, here I am again.  This book sounds logical to me.  The foods are things that we already eat.  I haven't found anything weird or bizarre that my family would not like.  It will take a little work at the beginning learning how to pair food together but I think after a couple of days it won't be too bad.

My journey began today.  It is a 28 day program.  I can stick to it for 28 days.

I will keep you posted on my progress!
