The Power of Your Metabolism

Reprogram your slow metabolism to lose weight.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Power of Your Metabolism is a thorough guide to help you reprogram a slow metabolism into an efficient system that helps your burn calories and fat and eliminate carbohydrate addictions.

Written and researched by Frank Suarez, who has conquered his own obesity problem, The Power of Metabolism teaches you how to lose weight and keep it off by following an eating plan that cycles back and forth between days that are low in carbohydrates and those that include a modest amount of carbohydrate.

It also includes help for those with diabetes and thyroid problems. It also addresses the truth about cholesterol, how body fat is really made, and why fats are not to blame despite of what intense marketing campaigns might dictate as well as information information on supplements, herbs and vitamins.

You can expect to lose up to three pounds of body fat each week by following the plan.

PRO
  • Shows you how to lose weight and work with your metabolism, not against it
  • Can be an effective plan for anyone who is a serial yo-yo dieter, has diabetes, hypertension or who is overweight or obese
  • Based on physiological processes rather than fad or unfounded diet hypotheses
  • Shows and teaches how to enjoy your favorite foods but in a routine and controlled way
CON
  • Involves being hyper vigilant about carb cycling
  • Amount of information contained in the book may be too overwhelming for those looking for a light diet book
  • Promotion of Natural Slim products throughout the book has a sales pitch tone to it
  • Diet plan is hard to understand
DIET and NUTRITION

The Power of Your Metabolism proposes that the main cause of the obesity epidemic has to do with the amount of carbohydrates, particularly refined carbohydrates in our diet. There are two basic eating plans laid out in the Power of Your Metabolism: The 2 x 1 and the 3 x 1 plan.

Both of these plans are built the kind of reactions to insulin they produce. On the 2 x 1 diet you are allowed two slimming foods for every one fattening food and on the 3 x 1 plan you are allowed three slimming foods for each one fattening food.

Slimming foods are protein sources like meat, poultry seafood, eggs, cheese, dairy, some vegetables, nuts and vegetable juices. Fattening foods are those that produce a large insulin reaction in the body such as white bread, potatoes, starches, root vegetables, grains, cereals, fruit, candy and sugar.

Those who are diabetic or who have a lot of weight to lose are encouraged to follow the 3 x 1 diet.

A 2 x 1 meal might be eggs, bacon and potatoes or a piece of steak, a dinner salad and a baked potato. A 3 x 1 meal might be shrimp cocktail, a chicken breast, a dinner roll and a serving of vegetables.

EXERCISE

Exercise is strongly encouraged mostly in the form of walking that increases in duration and intensity over time and jumping on the trampoline.

CONCLUSION

The Power of Metabolism is a thorough and comprehensive book about how your metabolism works and the various factors that contribute to weight gain. While its eating plan earns high remarks for its avoidance of refined carbohydrates, the diet itself is very difficult to understand leaving the reader uncertain about portion control, sample meal plans, preparation methods and the day-to-day action of putting the diet into practice.

If you are looking more for an understanding of how metabolism works,then the Power of Your Metabolism will definitely provide you with the answers but if you are looking for a clear-cut diet plan, then you might want to consider another diet.

I really love how easy and simple this book is to follow. The whole point is not to just diet and starve certain foods but to change your lifestyle for one that is healthy without any prohibitions.

I can only describe this book as "wonderful". My mother gave me the book as a birthday gift last year, I was offended and didn't read it. She did and lost 27 pounds in 10 weeks. I decided to read the book and started to follow the plan 8 days ago. I had lost 4 pounds as of this morning. The cravings were hard to control the first few days, but with lots of water and "oregano oil" pills I made it through. Now I am not hungry all the time. I did not buy any of the products mentioned in the book from Mr. Suarez's company. So far, I am happy with the results and hopeful that I will be in better shape soon. Give it a chance; you won't regret it!

I think The Power of your Metabolism is dead on target. It tells you how to eat and what to eat in order to loss fat. I think it is better than laying out a menu for you to follow, because with all the valuable nutrional information you are given, you should be able to put together healthy meals for breakfast , lunch and dinner without any trouble. Every thing you need is there, you just have to apply what has been given to you. Best explanations I have ever read.
