My Thoughts:

Last week I shared how I had friends over and shared a new diet I was on -- "The Fast Metabolism Diet," which states that you could love up to 20 pounds in 28 days by following a three phase plan.

And, last week I found out about the Fast Metabolism Diet companion app, now available through iTunes for the iPhone and iPad, that is a great to help keep you on track, and help you succeed with your weight loss goals.  The app offers a great food lists, making shopping for foods for this diet that much easier.  And, it doesn't stop there.

The app also helps you keep track of your exercise regime, and let's you check off things as you complete them.  I don't know about you, but I work better with lists.  And, when I am able to cross things off and see progress, I feel like I am accomplishing things daily. Need reminders or tips, this app has you covered with these features, too. One of the things that Haylie Pomroy tells you to do, as part of her diet is to drink your body weight in ounces each and every day.  Let's just say that I am drinking a lot of water, and making stops to the bathroom a lot.  I use this app to remind me to drink the water, as I feel this is one of the reasons I am able to lose weight, even though I can't commit to the full 3 phase plan.  I am getting full off of water (when I can drink all those ounces daily), and don't find myself snacking between my meals, which are now every 3-4 hours.

Like I explained last week, I have found it hard to stick with the complete "Fast Metabolism Diet" as I can't commit to the daily meals, which you have to follow to a "T" to see real results.  But, I have seen an improvement in my overall energy level since beginning this diet and have learned some great tips and healthy recipes (that the whole family can enjoy), and have already lost 7 pounds in 20 days.  Not bad I think, as I never see this much weight lost with a single diet plan ever.

Unlike other diets, Haylie asks you to eat a lot  -- 3 full meals a day, along with at least 2 snacks.  The best part -- there is no calorie counting no weird fad foods, or the need to deprive yourself of food.  The Fast Metabolism Diet is made up of three phases:
Phase 1:  Monday-Tuesday -- Eat lots of carbs and fruits
Phase 2:  Wed.-Thursday -- Eat lots of proteins and veggies
Phase 3: Friday - Sunday -- Eat all of the above, plus add healthy fats and oils

Not sure where to start with foods?  Don't worry as this book is filled with great tips and recipes, making it an easy diet to follow.  In addition to the 3 phases, this book also covers do's and don'ts like no alcohol or caffeine (I still haven't been able to give up the coffee and soda, two of my weaknesses), as well as using organic foods and nitrate free meats in your diet.  Another hard "do" for me is to eat within 30 minutes of waking.  With two little ones, my days (especially my mornings) are unpredictable.  There are times that I don't get a shower in until mid afternoon, and breakfast, lunch?....where did those meals go?  The girls keep me going and going, that I find myself missing these crucial meals some days, and then looking for foods to snack on. 

And, like any diet, you have to be committed and follow it to a "T."  This is on one of the problems I face when trying to commit 28 days to it, as I know with my mommy schedule right now, that there may be days that I will not be able to eat first thing in the AM, that I will not want to make smoothies or other meals because of time constraints, or heck, I may even want a glass of wine after dinner to unwind.  If I want to lose up to 20 pounds in 28 days, I have to be committed.  Would you be able to commit?  Even though I can't do a full 28 days, I have been incorporating some of the phases and recipes into my current diet regime, and have seen 3-4 pounds in less than 2 weeks.

Are you planning to try out "The Fast Metabolism Diet" by Haylie Pomroy?  If so, I would suggest reading through her book first to get yourself familiarized with the diet and changes that you need to make to your diet and way of life (ie. say goodbye to caffeine-- coffee and soda -- my two weaknesses) and get ready to drink a lot of water.  Some of the recipes also call for ingredients that you will only find at a specialty or health and wellness store -- so plan accordingly, and don't start the weekly menus until you have all the ingredients you need.

And, for only $1.99, you should really download the companion app here, as it helps as a great reminder tool for each aspect of the 3 phase diet, and is a great tracking tool.

While I don't plan to commit fully to the 3 phase diet plan, I will still drink the water, limit my caffeine intake, and make a handful of the meals from each phase -- which I am surprised that the girls enjoy.  My husband, on the other hand, has been able to follow the diet more strictly, as he doesn't have energetic toddlers with him for breakfast and lunch, making him choose to snack over eating the spelled out meals.  As a result, he has lost 12 pounds in 20 days.  He, too, loves how he feels, as he wakes up with more energy, and doesn't find himself reaching for snacks throughout the day.  When he does get hungry, he will drink more water, to curve his appetite and fill himself up.

We still have 8 more days, so I am hoping I will see a few more pounds being shed.  It would be nice to say that I lost 10 pounds in 28 pounds, thanks to Haylie Pomroy's new diet, "The Fast Metabolism Diet"  If you struggle with weight loss, or are trying to loss the weight you gained over the weekend, in time for bathing suit season, why not pick up a copy of "The Fast Metabolism Diet" and give this diet 28 days?  I would love to hear how you do on this diet, and what your thoughts are on it, so please feel free to comment below. :-)

And, good luck with the weight loss. :-)  If I can do is (slowly), so can you!
