What Doctors Are Saying About Haylie Pomroy and The Fast Metabolism Diet
Written by Bruce M. Stark, M.D., Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine, Specializing in Pain Medicine and Anti-Aging Medicine
“It’s about time I met you!” Those were the first words I spoke to Haylie Pomroy, the nutritionist at the practice I had recently joined in Burbank, California. Haylie and I had work schedules that didn’t coincide, but I kept hearing about this brilliant nutritionist from my patients and the other doctors in the practice. When I finally met Haylie, I had to agree—there was indeed something exceptional about her. Never mind her magnetic personality and the deep caring she obviously has for her patients. The condition of the patients themselves was what stunned me; they were all so happy, satisfied, and on the fast track to health after enjoying significant, even stunning weight loss through Haylie’s program. She was getting results.
I began to refer my own patients to her—especially obese patients with diabetes and hypertension, for whom weight loss was literally a matter of life and death. They would come back to me at their next appointments raving about Haylie and the real, delicious, and satisfying food they were getting to eat. They would even share recipes with me, and so many of them thanked me sincerely for referring them to Haylie. I had never seen such compliance with a diet program before.
At first, after seeing the kind of results Haylie was getting with her clients, I wondered if this was just another unsustainable weight loss program that would result in frustration and failure for these patients, many of whom had lost and gained back weight time and time again. But once Haylie walked me through the program, I began to see that couldn’t have been farther from the truth. Haylie’s program is medically sound and grounded in real science, not untested theories or anecdotal evidence. There is nothing mysterious about it. Haylie has an intimate knowledge of how our metabolism works and how biochemical changes triggered by diet can speed it up or slow it down. Best of all, her program really works, and it works quickly.
One of the reasons it works so well is that it is so easy and pleasant to follow. The program uses a system of ingenious meal placement and timing that creates a workout for the metabolism. I’ve seen weight fall off, cholesterol levels go down, blood sugar stabilize, sleep improve, and depression lift. And not just temporarily – these results have stood the test of time. Haylie always says, “Let food work for you,” and she knows how to make that happen for even the clients whose excess weight had been resistant to other programs.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 33.8% of adults in the United States are obese, and 34.2% are overweight. That means a full 68% of U.S. adults weigh more than they should, compromising their health and well-being. Weight problems have reached epidemic proportions, and we have no time to lose. In my practice, I see the tragic side effects: chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes, depression, and a lifestyle that is less enjoyable and active than it could be. I see patients falling prey to the vicious cycle of radical dieting and binge eating, unable to escape their battles with food and the weight that just won’t come off anymore. I also see the psychological cost of weight problems and associated chronic disease, and it is significant indeed.
Haylie provides a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel of diet despair. I wish everyone could meet personally with Haylie because her clients are so fond of her and so motivated and inspired by her. That’s why I love that she has finally written a book. Now, anyone can have access to her incredible program and her supportive voice. Haylie uses humor, nurture, and firmness in equal measure to effect changes many of us used to think were impossible. Believe me when I tell you that it is possible to make a change in your weight, your health, and your life. I’ve seen Haylie make it happen, and I can’t wait to give a copy of this book to every single one of my patients. The fact that you are reading this now could very well mean you will never have to seek out medical care because of the ravages of diet-induced chronic disease. If I lose a few patients because people are getting healthier, well, that’s just fine with me.
So, congratulations! With Haylie Pomroy’s help, you and your metabolism are about to start healing.
