Food Lists, Events & even a FREE APP Keep You On Your Fast Metabolism Game!
Just as you are a product of your past, the body you will have tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, or ten, twenty, or fifty years from now is built from what you do from this day forward. What kind of body do you want to build? What kind of metabolism do you want to foster? What do you want to do with your fat stores? Keep them on your belly, butt, tights, and arms? Or do you want to burn them off to reveal a stronger, more energetic you? In other words: What kind of future do you want for yourself?
You’ve got a lot of power on your plate and plenty of opportunity to manifest the body and life of your dreams. And while you can’t control every aspect of your environment, there is one thing you have more control over than anything else: what you eat!

The Fast Metabolism 4 Life meal plan is a good, sound, strong, healthy nutrition plan for every day, when you aren’t working therapeutically on a particular issue. This is a great way to nurture your body and promote longevity and health while preventing disease. You could eat like this for the rest of your life, and eating like this will help you create a healthy life, a happy life, and a life where food is pleasurable. Emotionally, it will also help you establish a healthy relationship with food. It is a style of eating that allows you to get in all your micronutrients. It moves in a rhythm that matches the rhythm of a body with a healthy metabolism, and it is a diet in the best sense of the word—not a “diet” but a D.I.E.T., which in my world means: Did I Eat Today? The Fast Metabolism 4 Life plan includes a structure for how to eat most of the time to get all your micronutrients and fuel your life. It also includes a broad and comprehensive food list appropriate for anyone who wants to live a healthy life and maintain their weight.

Calm, happy and living in a land of plenty—that’s what we’re going for in Phase 1. We are sending your body the signal that everything it needs is readily available. We are extracting nutrients from food and feeding the adrenals, and happy, fed adrenals will set a body up for fat release. Sweet fruits and whole grains stimulate the endorphins in the brain and flood the body with very easy accessible nutrients, making Phase 1 seductive and nurturing all at the same time. Phase 1, Unwind, gently persuades your metabolism that it is no longer in an emergency situation. It’s okay to actually digest the food you are eating again, to use the energy and nutrients from that food, rather than storing it as fat to guard against future starvation or nutritional deprivation.

The foods in Phase 2, Unlock, allow for the mobilization of stored energy in the form of fat, so that you can actually burn it as fuel. The lean protein and large amount of vegetables in Phase 2 are the keys to this release. They “unlock” the stored fat, releasing it into the bloodstream. The proteins mixed with the targeted vegetables make it virtually impossible to store any of the consumed foods as fat, and because you have just come off Phase 1, where the adrenals have been soothed and the cortisol levels seduced into submission, your body is primed to release fat cells from the hips, butt, belly and thighs.

Phase 3 is exciting, delectable, and powerful—the phase where we unleash the full power of a stoked metabolism and where we focus on what I like to call the “thermogenic three”: hormones, heart, and heat. These three are responsible for cranking up the metabolic heat in the body and really boosting the burn. In this phase, after four days of eating low fat, you’re going to bring the fat back for the next three days. Your body is perfect primed for it now—your digestive enzymes are firing, your muscles are pumped up, your body is richly fed with nutrient-dense foods, and now, just when you really need it, heart-healthy fats come flooding in, triggering your body’s fat-for-fuel mechanisms. You begin burning the fat you’re eating, as well as all the fat you unlocked in Phase 2.
