Dieting can be a roller coaster ride, but these six women have figured out the key to success — and it all begins with the Fast Metabolism Diet.
How is it possible to eat a lot, yet still lose weight? Author Haylie Pomroy has mastered a plan that speeds up your metabolism while reducing stress on other areas of your body, and that plan is outlined in her book, The Fast Metabolism Diet.
Don't believe us? The following six women gave Pomroy's plan a try and are thrilled with the results. These success stories and more can be found on the Fast Metabolism Diet's website.
Since starting the program, Barbara M. actually lost more than she initially wanted to lose. Starting at 183 pounds, she is now at 159. "I don't call it a diet because it is a change in eating habits," she said. "I thought I would miss the sugar and coffee, and to my unexpected surprise, I did not." Although she admits she doesn't cook, the easy recipes offered in the Fast Metabolism Diet changed her ways.
Denise T.'s eating habits consisted of coffee with cream, doughnuts, fast food, candy and very few fruits and vegetables. She says sugar was her drug. The first week on the Fast Metabolism Diet, she craved sugar and went through withdrawal symptoms. By the second week, she felt great. In the first 10 days alone, she lost 12 pounds. "Every morning I wake up and feel thinner," she said. "I have a lot more weight to lose, but for the first time in ages, I actually feel like I will be able to reach my goal weight."
After seeing author Haylie Pomroy on Dr. Oz, Pam H. knew she didn't want to be 50 years old and flabby. In just a few weeks, she lost 14 pounds — four more than she originally set out to lose. "I feel like myself again," she said. "I have passed this diet on to so many friends. I love it."
No matter what she did, Donna K. couldn't get rid of her extra 20 pounds. None of her shirts buttoned shut, and she was always exhausted. Add in the osteoarthritis in her elbows, knees and fingers, and Donna hadn't felt good in a very long time. After starting the diet, in 28 days she dropped 17 pounds. Her arthritis pain is gone, and she says she never thought she could live without coffee, sugar and dairy.
While athletes often worry about the foods they consume, the Fast Metabolism Diet ensures those requiring food for fuel won't suffer. In fact, Jana W. can attest to that. Not only did she lose her goal weight, she also sleeps better and feels more energized. "I even became a faster runner," she said.
Kim M. is getting more compliments than ever. She says the Fast Metabolism Diet has helped her skin clear, her tummy shrink and her shopping ability at the grocery store improve. "Haylie, I can't thank you enough!"
