This diet is about cross-training your metabolism. It is meant to bring about a weight loss of at least 20 pounds in your first four weeks. It is meant for the people that have decided dieting cannot possibly be something they are destined to do. It is for those people that think God must be preventing them from losing weight. He isn’t doing that.
With this diet your body will be surprised, nourished, and revitalized. Your body will be made into a fat-burning machine through eating three different ways each week. There is a phase 1, phase 2 and phase 3 within each week.
This diet is designed to develop results quickly to make you happier and to restore the possibility of a longer life. With your new lighter body you’ll enjoy increased social approval. Life will become more enjoyable as a result, you’ll live longer, you’ll have freedom from the fear of the horrible results diabetes and heart disease can bring, you’ll get more from food and your food and beverages will taste better.
You may even feel superior to the
people that aren’t losing weight, that are stuck in a rut. These people will
inevitably be diabetic and heart diseased. Did you know heart disease is the
number one killer in America? Did you know how you eat is the primary
determinant on whether or not you get heart disease? Yup, people are eating
themselves to death. If you don’t want to be one of those people, this diet is
One thing that keeps you from losing weight is a misunderstanding of some diet principles; review the myths below for corrected knowledge.
Myth #1: IF I COULD JUST EAT LESS I'D FINALLY LOSE WEIGHT
Many people believe this but it is not so true. Heavy people
have reported eating 1200-1400 calories a day while working out 5 days a week.
These people have reported problems with losing weight even though they are
doing everything perfectly. This happens because you can eat too little. When
you eat too little your body will take a leaf of lettuce and store it as fat.
Myth #2: IF I LIKE IT TOO MUCH, IT CAN'T BE GOOD FOR MY WAISTLINE OR ME.
This isn’t true and can lead to people eating boring, extremely restrictive foods that leave them depressed and devoid of pleasure. When you eat something pleasurable (not overeat) you release endorphins that reduce stress hormones and increase metabolism. These endorphins then cause the release of serotonin, a hormone that makes you feel good and happy and that leads to production of a fat-burning hormone from the thyroid.
Myth #3: LOSING WEIGHT IS SIMPLY CALORIES IN, CALORIES OUT.
This is a way to over simplify what a calorie exactly is. There is a much more involved processes about calories that needs to be taken into consideration. Everyones’ biochemical processes are different. There are millions of variables within each person’s body that determines what a calorie is for each of them. For example, 1200 calories for some people may lead to weight loss where as 2400 calories for another could be the point where they lose weight.
The Fast Metabolism Diet
The Fast Metabolism Diet is about the burn. Everything about the diet is geared at making your metabolism speed up so you can afford to eat a pleasurable item once in awhile which isn’t that bad for you. During phase 1 the diet is centered on unwinding stress and calming the adrenals (days 1 and 2). During phase 2, the diet plan will help you unlock stored fat and build muscle (days 3 and 4). During phase 3, the diet will unleash the burn-hormones, heart and heat (days 5 and 7).
