A nutritionist presents a plan for alternating nutritious foods in specific combinations so readers can confuse their metabolism and turn their bodies into fat-burning machines. Note: Book excerpts are provided by the publisher and may contain language some find offensive. I was approached by She Speaks to review Haylie Pomroy’s The Fast Metabolism Diet book, which includes a 28 day process of leaning how to eat healthier without counting calories or grams of fat. Now, I know that this kind of clean, healthy eating is the way I should be eating all of the time. Haylie Pomroy has helped thousands of clients lose up to 20 pounds in just four weeks -all through the fat-burning power of food.
The first thing I noticed about the plan was that you can’t eat wheat, corn, dairy, soy, refined sugar, caffeine, alcohol, fruit juice and artificial sweeteners. I know, I know…lack of exercise is my issue PERIOD, not just while I was doing the Fast Metabolism Diet!
Haylie Pomroy has spent over 17 years helping people losing weight, improve fertility, overcome health challenges and reach optimal health while still enjoying real food and not going hungry! With clinic locations in Beverly Hills, Burbank, Irvine, and Fort Collins, Haylie is highly regarded in Hollywood and in the medical community.

Since the eating plan I was already on kind of worked the same way, I thought it would be a good fit for me and gave it a go! When I came home, I found that my weight had shot up to 120…yeah, that was disheartening.
Through all of my years of struggling with my weight, I have learned all about different diets and the way different foods effect your body. These are things I’d already given up on my eating plan, so I immediately felt more at ease, knowing that the dietary changes wouldn’t be too great! I was already eating most of the foods recommended, making the recommended recipes, though I wasn’t eating on a set schedule and rarely had snacks. Haylie Pomroy says that by keeping your metabolism guessing in this way, it will start working faster. Haylie Pomroy suggests getting a personal trainer or joining a group strength-training class…neither or which are things that I would actually do. Her impressive client list includes celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Reese Witherspoon, Cher, Raquel Welch and Robert Downey Jr. We need styles that are quick and easy to maintain without having to wake up at the break of dawn every morning to get it right.
I knew that much of it would melt right back off when I started eating right again, so I wasn’t too worried. But sometimes it’s just easier to eat the right way when you have it all laid out right in front of you – like in the form of a book! I think that I would have lost more if I wasn’t traveling so much while I was doing the Fast Metabolism Diet program. Haylie is also the Vice President of Clinical Research and Development for East West Essentials, and a registered wellness consultant and certified holistic counselor.


We ask them to live on food that is of a much lower quality than ever, thanks to all the chemical additives, preservatives, and processing. I strive to find joy in every day life and love sharing my excitement over new recipes, travel adventures, fun products and great movies! We pump ourselves full of sugar and artificial sweeteners, hormone-riddled dairy products, and foods like wheat and corn and soy that are so genetically modified, it's a wonder we can even digest them. Instead of continuing to lose weight, I ended up struggling just to maintain my weight loss.
We live in a world with depleted soil, polluted air, and water teeming with environmental chemicals. We eat and drink from plastic containers that leach even more chemicals into our foods and drinks. Maybe you've lost a lot of weight in the past a€” 40, 50, 100 pounds or more a€” but it's creeping back and you're panicking.
Maybe you're just so tired of dieting that you're hoping, beyond hope, that there might actually be a better way a€” a way that would allow you to eat again. This is the paradigm shift your body needs, and it will create a new, healthier version of you. The new you knows how the body reacts to specific foods and strategic eating, and the new you has all of the resources to get the weight off and keep it off for good. Then we'll look at some common misconceptions about food and weight loss that may have held you back in the past.
Specifically, the metabolic process consists of chemical reactions that occur in the cells of all living organisms to sustain life.
It's the change or transformation of food into either heat and fuel or substance (muscle, fat, blood, bone). We all need energy to survive a€” to breathe, move, think, and react—and the only way to acquire this energy is from the consumption and metabolism, or transformation, of food.
A healthy metabolism and a functional metabolism allow us to have just the perfect amount of energy available, an appropriate amount of reserve energy stored and ready for use, and a strong and stable structure (the body).
The metabolism shuttles that energy into different directions according to what you eat and what you do. The beauty of your metabolism is that it can be manipulated, because how you eat and move and live affects how much of your food is stored as fat, how much is used as energy, and how much is devoted to building the structure that is your body. The animal science industry uses this knowledge of energy, storage, and structure to create livestock that is ideally proportioned for use as food, to the tune of billions of dollars of profit. Dieting, nutrient—void foods, and living with too much stress slow down your metabolism when it should be sped up. When you gain weight, feel blah, even get sick with a chronic disease, those are all coping mechanisms your body creates in response to your actions or environment, like the frogs that grow three legs in polluted swamps.
Your butt or your belly could be protruding because of the very environmental, emotional, and biochemical ecosystem in which it is dwelling. Starvation stresses the adrenal glands, which in turn induce a string of chemical reactions in your body that suppress normal production of the thyroid hormones that promote fat burning (T3), in favor of more production of a different thyroid hormone that encourages fat storage (reverse T3, or RT3). This is an oversimplification, but in essence, this fat-storage hormone, RT3, blocks the hormone receptor sites throughout your body, especially in your belly, thighs, and butt, like a goalie defending a goal against the ball.


This hormone gets secreted to tell your body not to burn those 500 calories from breakfast or dinner too quickly. That's what RT3 "sees" when you get too stressed and you don't eat enough: 4 cups of rice and 2 cups of beans.
As I said above, RT3 acts like a goalie in front of the T3 receptor sites, blocking the ball (T3). Your brain, however, detects the presence of plenty of thyroid hormones, no matter what kind are circulating, so it steps down thyroid hormone production across the board.
Your metabolism slows down in response, and then you begin to store everything you eat as fat, even healthful foods. I can't tell you how many of my overweight clients come to me and tell me that they eat literally no more than 1,200 to 1,400 calories per day.
They say things like, "I swear this is all I eat!" and "I promise I'm not cheating!," as if I'm going to send them to the principal's office for food-diary forgery. When your metabolism is too slow, you'll store lettuce as fat, and you certainly won't burn any fat. I was explaining to a client the other day that because of the way her body's hormone system was responding, even the carbs found in the beautiful organic mixed greens she was eating were being used as a vehicle to store fat. Their bodies are pissed off at them for depriving them of food for so long; they're lucky if it only takes 4,500 calories to calm their bodies again. When you don't eat until the afternoon, you are asking your body to wake up, get out of bed, shower, get dressed, think, drive, work all day, and sometimes even exercise—all on zero fuel.
It has been proven that a body in starvation mode will first access muscle for fuel, and not fat. So if you do not feed your body, it will "eat" your muscles for the essential fuels it needs to continue life.
That's kind of disgusting and more than a little disconcerting to know how key lean muscle is to burning fat, as well as to keep you structurally fit and able to move with ease and energy through each day.
Your body's just doing what it thinks is best to keep you alive, yet the result can be devastating for someone trying to lose fat and build muscle. And do you really want to fear eating even lettuce a€” or worse, living only on it a€” for the rest of your life? Eating that way is restrictive, it is dull, and it certainly isn't effective, because your natural food-sensing system gets all messed up. So another thing the Fast Metabolism Diet is going to do is to encourage you to use all of your senses in a positive way, to help stimulate your metabolism again and be social and create a community around your new way of eating.
Pleasure is powerful and stimulates the secretion of endorphins, reduces stress hormones, increases the metabolism a€” and it helps fat burn!
