Fast Metabolism Diet

The Fast Metabolism diet is a weight loss and healthy eating diet based on the details in the book by the same name, The Fast Metabolism Diet (2013) by Haylie Pomroy.

The diet avoids foods that cause irritation or inflammation in the GI tract and can slow your bowels and create insulin resistance. So there is no wheat, corn, dairy, soy, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, dried fruit or fruit juices, artificial sweeteners, fat-free "diet" foods allowed.

There are 3 phases:

  1. Phase 1 – high-glycemic, moderate-protein, low-fat (days 1-2)
  2. Phase 2 – high-protein, high-vegetable, low-carbohydrate, low-fat (days 3-4)
  3. Phase 3 – high healthy-fat, moderate-carbohydrate, moderate-protein, low-glycemic fruit (days 5-7)
