    Fast Metabolism Diet Review

    This book promotes weight loss through the consumption of the right foods

    The Fast Metabolism Diet book was written in 2013 by Haylie Pomroy who is a celebrity
    nutritionist and wellness coach. This book promotes weight loss through the consumption
    of the right foods, and lets customers eat three full meals a day with two snacks in
    between (pretty average). In the book it says you will not count calories, ban food groups,
    or go carb/vegan free at the drop of a hat. There are three phases throughout the week:
    Phase 1 which is on a Monday and Tuesday allows a lot of fruits and carbs. Phase 2
    which is on Wednesday and Thursday allows proteins and veggies. Finally Phase 3 which
    is Friday through Sunday allows all of the foods allowed throughout the week, just with
    added fats and oils. Her claim to fame in this book is to keep your metabolism guessing,
    so that it will work harder and faster. The book’s program lasts for 4 weeks, and the cost
    of the program is $15.00 plus shipping.

    Does “Fast Metabolism” Have Scientific Backing?

    There are three phases throughout the week:
    Phase 1 which is on a Monday and Tuesday allows a lot of fruits and carbs. Phase 2
    which is on Wednesday and Thursday allows proteins and veggies. Finally Phase 3 which
    is Friday through Sunday allows all of the foods allowed throughout the week, just with
    added fats and oils. Her claim to fame in this book is to keep your metabolism guessing,
    so that it will work harder and faster. The book’s program lasts for 4 weeks, and the cost
    of the program is $15.00 plus shipping.

    Is “Fast Metabolism” Effective?

    There was an overall positive voice from customers in regard to the book and its
    effectiveness to kick start their weight loss. There is always negative reviews with
    anything, so there were definitely people who did not lose even close to the amount of
    weight that Haylie claimed they would lose, which proves that everyone’s bodies are
    different and will react different to certain diets. Some people found the meal charts in
    the book to be extremely hard to read, as well as the food choices to be hard to find in the
    grocery store. On top of the cost for the book, you will also be paying for costly
    groceries.

    What Are “Fast Metabolism” Pros and Cons?

    The diet is going to require you to read the book, grocery shop, and cook the meals that is
    required of you. It does not seem that tough to follow, however there is a lot of cooking,
    chopping, and planning that is required on this plan! If you are a busy bee and do not see
    yourself spending hours in the kitchen this program is going to be tough to follow. Also,
    the idea of having to create your own spreadsheets to find out what to buy and when
    which is very time consuming to say the least.

    The diet is relatively easy to follow and won't require you buying processed shakes or additional items other than the food you will be eating.

    Bottom Line on “Fast Metabolism” Diet

    The idea that you can lose a large amount of weight in such a short amount of time can
    set people up for serious disappointment, which is very dangerous when looking to lose
    weight. There has been some positive reactions toward Haylie’s points in the book, and
    their journey so keep that in mind too. The overall premises of this book is very set in
    stone, and will keep you in the kitchen more that you may want to be cooking foods you
    may have never thought you would like. The cost for the book is cheap, but the incurring
    costs of the food you will be making, and all of the recipe change ups will leave you in a
    bit of a whirlwind if you have any sort of a schedule.

    “17 Day Diet” – Does It Work?

    1. “17 Day Diet” Claims

    The 17 Day Diet was designed by a doctor who then brought the diet to television having it featured on shows like Dr. Phil which has greatly increased the popularity of the diet. The original intent for the 17 Day Diet was to help people quickly lose the weight they gained during the holidays, but it has since evolved into an anytime diet that can be used for weight loss.

    2. Does “17 Day Diet” Have Scientific Backing?

    Does not appear to list any scientific research done on the effectiveness of the program.

    3. Is “Product Name” Effective?

    The diet takes the dieter through 17 days of cycling the foods eaten and varying the amounts of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins consumed on a daily basis. The idea behind the cycling is to “trick” the body and speed up the metabolism thus making for rapid weight loss. Consisting of four cycles (Accelerate, Activate, Achieve, and Arrive), the 17 Day Diet can supposedly help dieters lose 10-12 pounds in the first 17 days. Additionally, this is supposed to be better for the body versus a longer and more consistent weight loss approach. Do Dieters Lose Weight on the 17 Day Diet? Any weight that might be lost on this diet will likely be short-term. The 17 Day Diet is not unlike other calorie restrictive diets which are usually good for short-term weight loss. But, the fact remains that once a dieter goes back to the way they normally eat, all weight loss progress is usually given back. In addition, the 17 Day Diet calls for exercise six days a week. While the length of the exercise is only 17 minutes, this will add to the short-term weight loss.

    Once the 17 days is over, a dieter who stops working out will further kill their weight loss progress.  The 17 Day Diet might be easy to follow at first, but that ease will quickly fade once the cravings kick in. Many can’t make it on the small amount of calories that the 17 Day Diet allows nor can they find the energy to work out the recommended six days per week on those calories.

    4. What Are “17 Day Diet” Side Effects?

    Because 17 Day Diet does not require to take any specialized supplements, protein shakes and only consists of regular food items it virtually does not have side effects other that what you could expect to experience when starting any new diet. Typical side effects of drastic or even slight changes in your diet that involve cutting out sugars, carbs  and processed food, might make you experience:

    • Fatigue
    • Difficulty falling and staying asleep
    • Headaches
    • Unusual Mood changes
    • Higher than usual cravings for carbohydrates

     

    5. “17 Day Diet” Support

    As it appears “17 Day Diet” does not have official phone number to call or e-mail address to use for support but does offer Facebook support group and has it's own blog page where member's can have to member area forum.

    6. Bottom Line

    Because the 17 Day Diet is constantly switching up what you can and can’t eat that means lots of trips to the store. So, you not only have to find the time to work out almost daily, but you also have to find time to run back and forth for groceries. Conclusion The 17 Day Diet seems to be nothing more than another in a long line of fad diets. The book itself costs $25 and of course those who want to exercise have to buy their exercise video, which is the “perfect” 17 minute workout for an additional $15 plus shipping. Additionally, the notion that the 17 Day Diet, which is meant for rapid weight loss, is somehow better than losing weight at a steady pace is not accurate. Research shows time and again that losing weight steadily, a feature that the 17 Day Diet does not come with, is the only way to maintain the weight loss success and good health.
