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!
