Stay on Track after Weight Loss with These 4 Tips and My Street Style Gyros

Living a healthy, balanced life means you aren't on a weight loss plan, but you aren't constantly injuring your metabolism, either. Keep it burning with these four tips:

Tool #1. Stay Organic

Organic really matters, especially with your dairy, chicken, eggs, and beef. Trust this aggie when I tell you that you do not want what nonorganic versions of these things have to offer you! Let’s just leave it at that.

Tool #2. Supplement

Because of both poor soil quality and the tendency of most people to at least occasionally make poor food choices, consider covering your nutritional bases with basic supplements, especially a high-quality, clean multi-vitamin and food-based essential fatty-acid supplement.

Tool #3. Chill Out

Now you understand how crucial it is to keep stress at bay, so don’t let it get the better of you. Learn to relax, breathe deeply, take care of yourself, and say no when you are overextended. Anything else just isn’t worth the metabolic price.

Tool #4. Keep Loving Food

Never stop loving what real, nutrient-dense food does for you and your body. Appreciate and respect what nutrients have to offer and the potential they hold for you. Stay in tune with how you feel before you eat, and how you feel after you eat, to keep tabs on what foods make you feel good and what foods you are better off avoiding. Love healthy fats and complex carbs. You never have to fear food again, especially if you are enjoying recipes like my Street Style Gyros. 

Street Style Gyros

Phase 1 | Serves 4
Prep time: 20 minutes | Total time: 2 hours 20 minutes (includes marinating)


Zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes*

To serve:

Fast Metabolism tortillas (or sprouted-grain pita halves)
Red onion
Sliced cucumbers
Lemon wedges


Combine the first ten ingredients (zest through black pepper) in a large bowl. Add the chicken, stir to coat, cover, and marinate in the fridge for an hour or two.

Preheat a grill to medium heat (or preheat your broiler, with the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat). Thread the chicken onto skewers and grill or broil until cooked through, about 8 minutes total, turning once or twice. Serve in Fast Metabolism tortillas or sprouted-grain pita halves with all the fixings.

*For a vegetarian version, combine 2 cups cooked or canned, drained and rinsed chickpeas with the marinade, spread on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake at 350℉ for 20 minutes.
