    Hi Glyn,

    I've been doing the Fast Metabolism Diet. Since the last week of March I've taken off 33 lbs and still going. It can be difficult for some people to do because you do a lot of cooking. It doesn't bother me though because I tend to cook a lot anyway. Here is a very quick overview of what the book says:

    The 28-day Fast Metabolism Diet consists of three phases that are repeated for four consecutive weeks:

    Phase 1 (Monday–Tuesday): Unwind stress and calm the adrenals with lots of carbs and fruit.
    Phase 2: (Wednesday–Thursday) Unlock stored fat and build muscle with lots of protein and veggies.
    Phase 3 (Friday–Sunday): Unleash the burn (hormones, heart and heat) with all of the above, plus healthy fats and oils.

    Those who have tried the diet say it's not really a diet at all, but a return to a healthier way of eating. That's precisely how I feel about it. The Fast Metabolism Diet incorporates plenty of fruits, vegetables, proteins, legumes and lots of water (half your body weight in ounces every day!) and forbids wheat, corn, dairy, soy, refined sugar, caffeine, alcohol, dried fruit and fruit juices. The book provides daily guidelines (the number of proteins, veggies, fruits and grains to be eaten at each meal and snack) as well as sample meal plans and several recipes.

    Here is a website that goes into more detail as to what the diet is like. It's not a diet though. I don't feel deprived. http://www.chewfo.com/diets/the-fast-metab
    olism-diet-by-haylie-pomroy-2013-what-
    to-eat-and-foods-to-avoid-food-list/

    If you think you are still interested then you really need to buy the book. Do not buy the kindle version though!! It has a lot of errors in it. The book has some too but her website in the forums area has the corrections to the mistakes.

    Hope that helps! If you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask. emoticon

    By the way, emoticon for the foam hand goodie. emoticon

    Good luck fellow Teddy Bear, in getting the rest of your weight off whether you do the Fast Metabolism Diet or not!

    Sending big bear hugs!
