Publisher's Summary

Haylie Pomroy has helped thousands of clients lose up to 20 pounds in just 4 weeks - all through the fat-burning power of food. Hailed as "the metabolism guru", Haylie reminds us that food is not the enemy, it’s medicine needed to rev up your sluggish, broken-down metabolism and turn your body into a fat-burning furnace.

On this plan you’re going to eat a lot. You’re going to eat three full meals and at least two snacks a day - and you’re still going to lose weight. What you’re not going to do is count a single calorie or fat gram. You’re not going to ban entire food groups. You’re not going to go carb-free or vegan or go cold turkey on the foods you love. Instead, you’re going to rotate what you’re eating throughout each week according to a simple and proven plan carefully designed to induce precise physiological changes that will set your metabolism on fire.

  • Phase I (Monday-Tuesday): Lots of carbs and fruits
  • Phase II (Wednesday-Thursday): Lots of proteins and veggies
  • Phase III (Friday-Sunday): All of the above, plus healthy fats and oils

By keeping your metabolism guessing in this specific and deliberate way, you’ll get it working faster. This isn’t just a theory, it’s the results-based product of Haylie Pomroy’s successful programs. It’s worked for celebrities, for athletes, and for people with chronic illnesses who need to lose weight, doctor’s orders. Now it’s going to work for you.

In four weeks not only will you see the weight fall off, you’ll also see your cholesterol drop, your blood sugar stabilize, your energy increase, your sleep improve, and your stress dramatically reduce. All thanks to the miraculous power of real, delicious, satisfying food!

Plus, by switching up what you’re eating every few days, you’ll get to enjoy a greater variety of foods, so your palate will never feel bored or deprived. Complete with four weeks of meal plans and over 50 recipes - including vegetarian, organic, and gluten-free options - this is the silver bullet for the chronic dieter who has tried every fad diet and failed, the first-time dieter attempting to kick her metabolism into gear, and anyone who wants to naturally and safely eat her way to a skinner, healthier self.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Absolutely amazing!

I'm a 50 year old female with a dysfunctional thyroid and I have tried just about kind of diet out there. This fast metabolism formula is the most effective and quickest/healthy way to lose weight. I am so ecstatic and feel the best I ever have. I will always use this formula and never diet again.

Any additional comments?

In order to write a proper review for this book I really need to break it down into 3 parts: A review of the author, the reader and lastly the diet itself. The author, Haley Pomeroy, is incredibly irritating and to use her own words “bossy”. She over sells her diet plan and uses words which are misleading….such “slather your celery with almond butter” or “slather everything on your plate with avocado”. If you follow her diet there are portion controls and there really is no slathering. The reader reflects the author’s attitude and is way too perky throughout the entire read. It is like going to a cheerleading convention and listening to them read the police report from the evening news. Really, there is no way to cheerfully deliver the news that once again I am going on a diet and the reality of it is that I will not always be happy. Since the book does rationalize its approach with a fair amount of nutritional information and science, I much would have preferred a more professional or scholarly presentation. <br/> I don’t think I would have ever made it through the book or attempted the diet if I did not have a friend who was successful on it. So let’s get down to the reason you are really reading this review….does it work? The answer is most definitely YES and it seems to be a well-rounded approach to healthy eating. My husband and I are both working professionals in our mid 50’s and though we had in the past been successful on other diets, we just couldn’t get the weight off. In fact we considered it a good week if we didn’t gain. We stayed on the plan for 8 weeks and lost a combined weight total of 60 pounds! We did not strictly follow her recommendations for portion control but did use common sense. So there was no “slathering” but we weren’t hungry either. The first couple of weeks were a bit rough until I learned how to cook the way we like to eat. My husband would still say it is too bland. We did not find any the recipes she provided to be tolerable, though my friend liked some of them. One more point, I did listen to the entire book and it made a great deal of sense. It helped me to understand why she has the rules that she does which helped me to stick to the plan. It also seems to be a safe well rounded approach to weight loss. So the bottom line is that regardless of how irritating the author and the reader are the diet works. Look at it as a 28 day adventure and then assess it for yourself. <br/>

One week down...

Liked the format and simplicity. It does take time to prepare for each day, but Haylie covers how to make it easier. It is great that she does this all with real food, and gives input on how to use it in the context of a real life.
Very interested in where this will take me in 3 more weeks.

To find the PDF, go to "My Books" under the Library tab on top. When you hover over the title of the Fast Metabolism Diet book it turns dark and says "Expand". Click on it and a window will pop up with the PDF download button on the right.

Good but a lot of info is in the PDFs

The oral portion is just the first few chapters of the book. The recipes, charts and lists are in the PDFs, which makes sense. So it's a very short listen. Very well executed. Great narrator.

I agree with Marcie

What made the experience of listening to The Fast Metabolism Diet the most enjoyable?

She is a born motivator. If I had read this book myself I probably would not have tried this diet.

Any additional comments?

The only thing I will add to Marcie's review is that I was able to complete this diet with strong difficulty. When you complete it if you return to your old ways the weight will come back but not as fast as other diets. When you make the days I would say don't let yourself stray too far from the plan because I was mislead by the "fixing your metabolism" statement. No more than a week and if you have the willpower, go back to it. It is a very healthy diet but somewhat unrealistic for most to continue as a lifestyle. Her recipes suck! lol! But if you can cook you will figure out how to cook the way you like to eat.
