The Fast Metabolism Diet

Fast Metabolism DietThe Fast Metabolism Diet

This is a best selling diet book authored by Haylie Pomroy and featured on Dr. Oz, complete with an A list  celebrity clientele.  (I think I should create a category for this site for those diets featured by Dr. Oz!)

There is a caloric cycling element to this diet (although no calories are counted), so it’s more like a nutrient cycling.

Phase 1 : Two days of mostly fruits and carbs in the way of whole grains (think quinoa and brown rice)

Phase 2:  Two days of mostly dark green veggies and lean proteins such as fish and poultry

Phase 3: Three days of all of the above with the addition of good fats such as avocado, nuts, coconut oil and olive oil

Ms. Pomroy has an impressive list of credentials and described as a ‘Celebrity Nutritionist’.  There are extensive online resources such as Pinterest recipe boards, facebook groups and blogs.  She also sells a shake mix on her website that supports the Fast Metabolism Diet. I checked the ingredients and they look really good, especially compared to other shake mixes.  Definitely worth a look and the cost works out to less than $2 per serving.

Pros and Cons of the Fast Metabolism Diet

Pros

Use of real  whole and healthy foods, lots of it

Plenty of online resources to help you, as well as a smart phone app

No counting calories

Cons

I am always hesitant about a diet guru promoting shakes and supplements

Counting calories or not, on the Phase 1 and Phase 2 days, the calories are very, very  low.

I find the phases and cycles a bit confusing

 

But certainly I feel this one is worth a try and I would love to hear from people who have done it.  How did you find the switching from phase to phase?

PS The Fast Metabolism Diet cookbook is available by preorder.

The Visalus Weight Loss program is probably best known as being one of the first weight loss companies to use Social Media to take their program viral.

For the diet itself, it is a meal replacement program that happens to have one great tasting shake mix along with product kits that are chosen depending on your goals.

Balance Kit: for maintenance or to lose a few pounds (replaces one meal a day)

Shape Kit: 2 meals a day replacement for weight loss up to 20 pounds

Transformation Kit: 2 meals a day, energy drinks, metabolism booster and hunger control for people who are wanting to lose more than 20 pounds.

Core Kit: Muscle building kit for athletes

The shake mix is probably one of the best I have ever tasted.  When I first heard that there was only one flavor I was disappointed but then w hen I started to try some of their recipes I was impressed by the way I could keep it interesting and have a different shake every day!

Pros and Cons of Visalus Program

Pros

Taste! It’s the shake mix that tastes like a cake mix

The ‘Cream’ Flavor shake mix lends itself well to mixing with almost anything.

Cost effective (less than $2 per shake meal)

Cons

You have to find a distributor.

Distributors will want you to go on a monthly shipment plan, but most will let you buy with cash as needed.
