Fast Metabolism Diet 101
What is the Fast Metabolism Diet?
The Fast Metabolism Diet, or “FMD” for short, is a 28-day plan designed to help you to look and feel better from eating food. That’s right, eating REAL food is the key to losing weight, speeding up your metabolism, and improving your overall health. The FMD is broken down into 3 Phases with an additional Phase for maintenance.
- Phase 1 – Unwind Stress: High-glycemic fruit + moderate protein + low-fat + vigorous cardio. For more information about Phase 1, click here.
- Phase 2 – Unlock Fat Stores: Very high-protein + high-vegetable + low-carbohydrate + low-fat + strength training. For more information about Phase 2, click here.
- Phase 3 – Unleash The Burn: High healthy-fat + moderate carbohydrate +moderate protein + low-glycemic fruit + stress-reducing activity. For more information about Phase 3, click here.
From now on, “D.I.E.T.” will mean “DID I EAT TODAY.” Remember this phrase! On the Fast Metabolism Diet, you’re going to eat a lot—three full meals and at least two snacks a day—but you’re still going to lose up to 20 pounds in just 4 weeks!
No calorie counting, no weird fad foods, and no deprivation. Instead, you’re going to rotate what you eat throughout each week according to a simple and proven plan that retrains your sluggish, broken-down metabolism, turning it into a fat-burning furnace! Best part, the recipes are provided for you and broken down by Phase!

Why do I need the FMD?
This is not for first-time dieters; it’s for LAST TIME dieters. Years of poor nutrition and dieting fads may have caused you to have a slow metabolism. Good news is, there are signs of a slow metabolism! You need the FMD if:
- It’s easier to gain weight than to lose weight.
- You can’t lose weight no matter how much you exercise.
- You gain weight even when you eat next to nothing.
- You’re noticing fat in areas you never had it before.
- You have cellulite in new places.
- Your heels are cracked and dry, and you’re losing hair.
- You have terrible afternoon sugar cravings.
