Is The Fast Metabolism Diet Worth Buying?
In the world of celebrity diet gurus, Haylie Pomroy is a household name. Having worked with many top celebrities and business executives, she has a powerful reputation in the weight loss industry, and the recommendations and testimonials to back it up. She regularly appears on television and in print media as an expert in her field, and this book went to No 1 in the New York Times Bestseller List. There is no doubt that she is considered an expert in the field…which is what makes some elements of The Fast Metabolism Diet so disappointing.
On the back of The Fast Metabolism Diet states a number of facts about the diet. It claims to be THE silver bullet for weight loss, and promises that you will eat lots of tasty food without counting a single calorie or a single gram of fat. It also promises that you can lose 20 pounds in 28 days. Unfortunately, this is just misleading.
The Fast Metabolism Diet is a restrictive diet that cuts out a huge amount of foodstuffs. It claims that you won’t count a single calorie – you won’t have to, as the calorie count is so low. It claims you won’t count a single gram of fat – you won’t have to, as this is an almost fat free diet. By stating you don’t have to count them, it is implied that the diet will be balanced. The only reason you don’t count them is because you can’t. They aren’t there.
Will The Fast Metabolism Diet work? Very possibly. The concept of boosting your metabolism to encourage weight loss is entirely sound. There is no doubt that this diet will result in many people losing weight, and losing it quickly. However, the big issue is that for just as many people it simply won’t be sustainable. As a short term solution for quick weight loss, The Fast Metabolism Diet could easily produce exceptional results. However, if you are looking for a diet plan that will change your eating habits with any kind of longevity, this is probably not the diet for you.
