I partnered with Harmony Books to share the #FastMetabolismFoodRx with you! One of my most popular all-time posts was about the Fast Metabolism Diet a few years ago. At that point, I was doing all of my regular exercise classes and staying in shape. I had a friend who followed the book’s diet for a college reunion and said she saw great results. Now that I am almost 45, I have noticed my body is slowing down. I have more aches and pains, and the hormones are out of control. I was thrilled to get another perspective, since I recently started seeing an acupuncturist for some muscle problems. The Fast Metabolism Food RX really has you look at your own body and see what it is subtly trying to tell you with each little symptom. If you ignore it, you will become sick. If you are proactive, there is a chance food and diet will help improve your health.
ABOUT THE BOOK
WANT TO FEEL GREAT, DISEASE-PROOF YOUR BODY, AND LIVE IN OPTIMAL HEALTH AT YOUR IDEAL WEIGHT?
When multiple health challenges threatened author Haylie Pomroy’s life, it set her on an investigative journey that was both life-changing—and lifesaving. In this book, she shares her personal story for the first time, as well as the powerful food programs she created based on the methods and philosophies that saved her life and helped her thrive. For decades now, these same food therapies have provided profound clinical results in her clinics where she’s treated thousands of others.
In her new book, Haylie teaches us that anyone can achieve the healthy body they want from the foods they choose and use. Are you ready to eat your medicine?
Some interesting facts I took from the book are that you should eat within 30 minutes of waking up. I am not the type to skip breakfast, but sometimes — especially on the weekend — hours can pass before I actually eat. It does not have to be a huge breakfast, just some nutrition to tell your body it is time to get moving. Additionally, you should not starve your body, but rather feed your body for the best success. Diet to Haylie is “DID I EAT TODAY?”. No more starvation diets or processed foods. Her book empowers you you to easily follow different food prescription plans to get your body on track.
I decided to focus on Chapter 7, PMS, Perimenopause, Menopause and Manopause. If you are a woman, you are dealing with some facet of this topic. Our hormones are doing crazy things, causing us to act and feel different from our true selves. I don’t want my hormones to take over causing me to yell at my family, so changing a few dietary foods can help me through this time. It is worth a try, and because I like to eat and cook, this is a great start for me.
Haylie lists the power foods for each type of repair as well as a five “meal/snack” sample menu. The Fast Metabolism Food RX does not suggest you try to repair your issues solely on your own and through this book, but rather it encourages your doctors, or “Dream Team” as she calls it, to get involved and take the necessary tests to see if things are working.
Women in their 40s and up, I dare you to read the “self discovery zone” of chapter 7 and tell me how many of these symptoms you are experiencing right now. I have 11. I’m telling you, this self discovery part is mind blowing. Now it is time to sit down with the book and create a meal plan to get myself back on track.
