Eating to Heal

Fast Metabolism Food Rx

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been asked to review a new book from an author I’ve been familiar with for a few years now.  The Fast Metabolism Diet was my first introduction to nutritionist, Haylie Pomroy, followed by The Burn and now Fast Metabolism Food Rx.  Many of you went through the Fast Metabolism Diet with me and some of you are doing it now.  If you’re curious about the new book but not sure how it differs from her previous book, here is the lowdown:



In Fast Metabolism Food Rx, Haylie has brought the experience of going to her clinic for treatment to the privacy of your own home.  Using eating as a tool to repair damage to your metabolic pathways (basically your body’s ability to function properly), you will determine which category of symptoms are most prevalent in your personal health.  After answering a series of questions, you’ll calculate your responses and rank the 7 different prescriptions.  Once you’ve determined which of the plans should take highest priority, you can get to business.  The beginning chapters of the book introduce the philosophy of eating for optimal health (healing the metabolic pathways).  There is plenty of concise information that is easy to follow which applies to everyone.  Your prescription chapter will give you more specific guidance to allow you to amplify results through a list of superfoods, lifestyle practices and meal planning maps.  Additionally you’ll find recipe ideas and a sample menu for each prescription.

This book is easy to navigate.  It’s offers reasonable and sustainable plans.  It is a resource that you can refer to over and over again.

The 7 prescriptions cover the following:

I took the quiz and started my Rx today.  The nice thing about this plan is that it can be started immediately.  It doesn’t require fancy recipes or elaborate preparation (although preparedness is key on any plan).  I’ll share my menu with you as I go, but keep in mind, my priority may not be the same as yours.

If you’d like to know more, or want to get started on researching where you can begin your own treatment plan, check out this link:

You can preorder the book today and have it shipped to your door on February 23.  If you do preorder the book, you’ll have the jumpstart guide available to you immediately.  This will allow you to have the self-assessment questionnaire completed so that you can jump right in to your plan of action.

    I have a website on this same subject matter and I got to tell you, this is good stuff. It’s given me several more ideas for my own material i would never have considered. Whoever wrote this is doing a first-rate job.
