DIET and NUTRITION

There are three basic steps with regards to eating on The Metabolism Miracle. The first step is known as the basics. This is similar to a spring cleaning for your body. This step lasts eight weeks and involves a low carb period to rest your overworked pancreas and liver while shrinking fat cells. During this period you cut most carbohydrates from your diet. It is important to remember that you are only taking these carbohydrates out temporarily to help your blood sugar run smoothly. The book does warn that the first three days of this stage will be rough. During this time you can eat whenever you are hungry as long as you are consuming normal portion sizes. Some of the foods you will be able to eat include lean protein, vegetables and healthy fats. There is a complete list of approved foods for this stage within the book.

Step two allows you to transition healthy carbs back into your diet. This stage can last eight weeks or longer depending on how much weight you want to lose. You will be reintroducing healthy carbs in the proper amounts to promote fat burning and weight loss. This will help gently restart your pancreas and liver. During this stage you are asked to take body measurements and a weight measurement once per month. You will slowly add low-impact carb foods to the foods you ate in step one. You are carefully instructed on how to reintroduce carbs into your diet and what time of day to eat them. This careful guidance keeps you from adding carbs too rapidly and helps you avoid rapid weight gain. There is no time limit for step two so you can stay on it until you reach your goal weight. In this stage, you limit your net carbs to between 11 and 20 grams per day.

Step three of the program deals with keeping the weight off for a lifetime. This step will open your diet to more carbohydrates while it also helps keep your health and energy levels in shape. You start this stage after you have reached your goal weight. In this stage your daily allotted carbs consists of 30 to 35 percent of your total calories. In addition to these stages, there are some general food rules listed below.

  • Drink 64 ounces of water each day
  • Don’t go more than five hours without a meal or snack
  • Take the recommended daily vitamins and supplements
  • Choose sweeteners carefully; sucralose is recommended
  • Read food labels to determine carbohydrate content
  • Consider drinking green tea daily
  • Increase physical activity to at least 30 minutes five times per week
  • Eat allowed foods liberally, but not excessively
  • Take a few minutes each day to relax
  • Think positive; reflect on your accomplishments each morning
EXERCISE

Exercise with The Metabolism Miracle is called the critical link. You are required to work out for 30 minutes each day five times per week. Your goal is to burn fat and maintain muscle. Once you stimulate your muscle, it burns calories for hours after the workout. Without exercise, your brain will be unable to differentiate whether its burning muscle or fat, and you may feel tired and weak even though you are losing weight with the diet alone.

CONCLUSION

The Metabolism Miracle has helped numerous people lose weight in a safe and healthy way while allowing them to keep it off. This diet stresses that eating in a low carb fashion will help you reset your body, but it is not healthy to eat that way for more than eight weeks. This diet can help reprogram your metabolism to work efficiently and help you alleviate some other health problems you may be dealing with. It is important to notice that this program isn’t just about the diet. Exercise is a key component and you don’t have to do a lot of gym time to see results. Those that want to restart their metabolism and don’t have a problem eating a low carb diet on a temporary basis may find this book very helpful. It could be just the program you’ve been looking for to get you lasting results.

This stops the cravings COLD. I had my doubts, but after the first 3 days, cravings gone! And they never came back. 18 months later, 50 lbs gone, the "old" energy came back and I'm slowly getting my "prediabetes" numbers back in shape. What's not to like? And you can eat carbs later in the program. I get the same buzz off an apple as I used to get off a candy bar. LOL!

This really works. I had given up on weight loss, my goal in trying this program was just to feel better. I not only felt much better, but lost weight too and was happy to see I maintained the weight loss a year later. For anyone who has Metabolism B and has never had long-term success with dieting - check this program out before giving up completely!

It's tough, but it is the only diet that has worked for me. I have thyroid issues and gain weight from carbs quite easily. Diane's plan address the real issues and how one's body reacts to carbs if you are ultra sensitive to processing them. Transitioning from step i to step 2 has been hard, but if i FOLLOW it, i see results.
