Hope with Green: Green Easy Soup Recipe for Detoxing

The past holidays caused you to eat a lot, to drink a lot and to sleep a lot (because of hangover). Everyone must have been through this. Once in a year celebrations are just unstoppable, aren’t they? But be reminded that you still have to be taking care of your health. I’m sure, you don’t want to spoil one or so days of the first week of New Year with being sick. Your health might get wasted during the holidays but you can always start a New Year with a new healthy lifestyle. Take this simple soup recipe that I am to introduce to you. A healthy vegetable soup recipe. Take note, a veggie soup recipe.

This recipe will yield 4 servings. Phase 3.

Ingredients for this Detox Soup:1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons diced onion
1 inch of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
4 cups fresh broccoli, cut up
1/2 pound of fresh spinach leaves
3 parsnips, peeled, cored, chopped
2 ribs of celery, trimmed, chopped
A handful of fresh parsley, roughly chopped
Fresh water, as needed
Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
Lemon or lime juice

Steps in making this Detox Soup:

  1. In a large soup pot, pour the olive oil in it, heat it over medium fire and sauté garlic, onion and ginger. Put the broccoli, spinach,parsnips, parsley and celery in, and stir a bit until the spinach is distorted. Add water just enough amount to drown the vegetables. The spinach will be cooked quite a bit so avoid adding more water. Maybe later, if you want the texture thinner.Heat to a high simmer, cover the pot, and reduce heat to a medium simmer. Cook it for fifteen minutes or so until the veggies are softened. Seems like one of those quick and easy soup recipes you’re familiar with.
  2. Blend the soup in an immersion blender to smooth it.
  3. Make a taste test and if it needs brightening, squeeze a citrus to it.
  4. Not really a grain-lover but eats, serve your soup with a spoonful of newly cooked rice in the center of your bowl- perfection!

Hope you enjoy this recipe! Please share to us your photo as well. Say hello to the New Year with a mission of health and wellness!

The Fast Metabolism Diet Reviews from Diet Experts

Over the past few years we’ve heard thousands of fast metabolism diet reviews as it brought a miracle to thousands of people’s lives.

fast metabolism diet reviews

One of the main highlights why the fast metabolism diet was popular among other diet plans over the market is that, it focuses on healing up your metabolism rather than depriving you of foods to eat. It confuses and keep guessing your metabolism of what food it would received every meal. Thus, keeping your metabolism on fire as it heals your “five major players”.

We’ve read several fast metabolism diet reviews on how the lives of fast metabolism dieters was changed, how it boost up their self-confidence, and how they were able to attain a healthier and fitter body through this diet. Now that we’ve heard  the reviews from the fast metabolism dieters, let’s take a look what does the diet experts have to say about this diet plan. Would they also recommend the fast metabolism diet to their patients as a weight loss program?

“The FMD diet seems like a new way to think about an old concept: eating a diet of whole foods.” – Sarah Waybright, owner/founder of WhyFoorWorks LLC.

Sarah Waybright expressed that Americans were too fond of eating refined, nutrient-poor foods and juices that contains a lot of carbohydrates, wheat, corn, sugar and fake ingredients that slows and kills our metabolism. According to Dr. Sarah, what Dr. Haylie did was brilliant. She eliminated and banned these fake ingredients and replaced these man-made juices into natural foods that is rich in fiber and micronutrients, but low in calories.

“It’s best to learn how to plan a balanced, moderate, nutrient-dense diet that’s based on a variety of whole, unprocessed foods and that fits your own individual needs and dietary preferences.” – Dr. Lehmann

Dr. Lehmann strongly agreed with Dr. Haylie’s principle of eating natural and organic foods and stop taking in additives, preservatives, hormones, etc that could slow down your metabolism and your liver’s job in burning fats. You can only heal and keep your metabolism on fire  by staying away from toxic chemicals. However, she also emphasized that eating organic foods is not an excuse to choose eating unhealthy foods. You still need to choose healthy foods to eat. She even said that she would rather eat a handful of organic vegetables than eating a handful of organic cookies!

Jasmine Jafferali, a lifestyle and wellness consultant also agreed with Haylie’s choice of organic products and foods than the unnatural foods.

While there are some parts of the diet plans that diet experts doesn’t agree with, only one thing is for sure. That food is indeed our medicine and that through eating natural foods we can attain a healthier and fitter body! So if you wanted to change your life and have a healthy lifestyle, start eating natural and organic foods now and keep yourself away from these fake, toxic, man-made foods!

Dealing with Alcoholic Drinks in The Fast Metabolism Diet

How to deal with Alcoholic drinks in the fast metabolism diet when holidays and parties are coming in?

alcoholic drinks in the fast metabolism diet

After the Thanksgiving Day, we are about to deal with the Christmas and New Year season, not to mention dealing with several office, and Christmas reunion parties while we are on the fast metabolism diet. It is no doubt that we can’t help but feel anxious when  the temptation is at its highest point. Not only foods are its highest level of temptation, but drinks too. These holiday seasons may not be complete without having a drink or two with our fellow friends and relatives. How do we deal with avoiding these alcoholic drinks in the fast metabolism diet?

We all know that alcohol is like coffee, it is one of the great metabolism killers. Not only it slows down or worst, kill our metabolism, but also it destroys our liver. The Fast metabolism diet’s goal is for our 5 great organ players to digest foods and heal our metabolism. We certainly can’t have them wasting time on digesting these metabolism killers. If possible, avoiding drinking alcoholic wine may seem to be the safest and the best option. But for those who certainly can’t give up drinking yet, here are the tips on how to deal with alcoholic drinks while on the fast metabolism diet.

Drink at least 8 ounces of water.

For every glass of wine or mixed drink you drink, you need to balance it by drinking at least 8 ounces of water to process the alcohol in your liver quickly. It will also help to cleanse your body and minimize its intoxicating effects. You can also add lime juice (juice of a whole lime) to your water. It has more vitamin A than lemon and this Vitamin can help your liver process the alcohol quickly.

Choose organic, sulfite-free red wine

This wine is your best option to drink during these holiday season because it has the least intoxicating effect on your liquor.

Choose Rum, Vodka and other top shelf liquor.

These drinks are generally cleaner than other liquors since they have the least content of added chemicals and fake ingredients.

Choose good quality of mixers.

Be aware that some mixers are full of fake ingredients like tonic water (that contains sugar) and fake flavorings. Make sure that the juices used in the mixers are fresh. Avoid mixing up sodas and energy drinks.

Never drink beer.

Drinking beer is never an option in the fast metabolism diet. It has more carbohydrates that is difficult to digest, thus shutting down your metabolism.

Eat your phased-specific meals before planning on drinking.

Follow the routine of eating every 2-3 hours per day. It is recommended to eat protein-filled meal and snacks before planning on drinking. You can eat meatballs, raw nuts. Protein-filled snacks and meals can help control the delivery of sugar to your bloodstream.

Detoxify your liver.

After drinking from the holiday season, it is important to detoxify your liver from the toxic it digested from the last night. Drink extra water to cleanse your body. You can also cook a cleansing soup (Liver-detox broth) that is great for your liver and adrenals. Drink 1-3 cups thrice (breakfast, lunch and dinner) during the next day.

It’s time to give credits to our community and be inspired from their experience. Let’s hear their stories out and how their life has changed because of the results The Fast Metabolism Diet program brought to us by Dr. Haylie Pomroy. Are you ready to be inspired? Read along:

Note: We didn’t altered/edited the following statements. What you’ll read here is the exact statements our fast metabolism dieters submitted to us.

“Hi. I am very pleased with the results of the diet. I have been on it now for two months. I am a senior woman with a bad knee so I cannot exercise as much as I would like but even so, I have lost over 15 lbs. This is the first success in dieting for me so needless to say I am very happy. Being unable to walk long distances or do much in the way of physical exercise limits my ability to use up a lot of energy but the Fast Metabolism Diet has allowed me to wear my clothes with more comfort and to lose the excess weight that had accumulated over the past two years.
Thank you so much.
A happy dieter.” –
Frieda H. Byrd

“Last spring I was at a baby shower and a relative told me about the FMD. Even though she was at a party she was eating a wonderful variety of foods from the luncheon buffet. I went home that night night ordered the book and spent the next week digesting everything I read. It all made sense. My 60th birthday was two months away and I was determined to loose some weight as I didn’t want to be an over weight grandma who couldn’t keep up with the grandkids. I had tried many diets and nothing seemed to make a difference. Both my husband and I love to cook and cook healthy so the diet was a great fit. We made a shopping list and a menu calendar for the week. We spent a weekend cooking and freezing and we were ready! In the first 28 days I lost 18 lbs and felt great and best of all my blood work showed that my cholesterol was finally under control. On maintenance (I eat all the foods all week) I have lost a total of 22 lbs. I am so grateful for this plan and now have 5 converts. Two of them are in my office which makes it so much fun because we share recipes and tips. We all use the app and read the blog. Thank you Haylie!” – Phyllis

” Lost 17 lbs first 26 days
Celebrating with wine Tonite !!! ( drank the whole bottle )
Cooked 32 meals for next 2 weeks while “celebrating” today.
No guilt here ..
Next 28 starts Monday
30 lbs to go” – Charlene Knight

“In February, I found myself on the edge of an unhealthy abyss. I had struggled with weight issues for years, brought on by unhealthy eating, off and on dieting, and the effects of multiple sclerosis that had limited my physical abilities and caused near constant fatigue. My weight had reached 275 pounds and my MS was winning its battle against my body. I was also fighting high blood pressure, high cholesterol and a heart arrhythmia. Let’s just say I didn’t see a long life ahead of me. And I was getting tired of buying larger clothes!
That’s when I heard about The Fast Metabolism Diet from former colleagues. At first read, it seemed intimidating and the thought of giving up cheese, chocolate and caffeine was not appealing. But I knew I had to make a change for me to have a future. So I jumped in and collaborated with friends to have a support system. My weight loss came fast initially. Then I hit the plateaus. Along the way, the “diet” faded away and it became my way of living.
As I lost weight, my health got better. No more high blood pressure or cholesterol. The heart arrhythmia went away. My MS was completely under control. My neurologist said to keep doing whatever it was that I was doing as there were no visible signs of the disease and my fatigue was gone.
As friends saw my physical transformation, many joined the FMD team. I was proud to introduce them to something that had changed my life. I was moved by one friend who works as a cancer research nurse. She started the diet because of me and began sharing the diet with her patients. I began to see how FMD could change so many lives besides my own.
Today, I’m physically active. I’m working out five times a week because this plan helped me get to where I can. I started running recently and plan to run a half marathon for my birthday in January.
The weight loss has been awesome. I weigh 205 pounds today. The weight is important. It was holding me back and contributing to myriad health issues. But more important is how I feel. I have more energy. I like what I see in the mirror. I love the foods I eat. I rarely miss my old bad habits or foods that slow down my metabolism.
I am proud to be an FMD disciple. It changed my life and I’ve seen it do the same for others. Nothing in life is easy. But the FMD plan makes it that way if you’ll give it an honest go.” – Jeff Holeman.

The Fast Metabolism Diet Life Changing Series Part 2

As a celebration of the launching of our community website, we have featured the compelling part 2 of the fast metabolism diet life changing series!

Note: We didn’t alter/edited the following statements. What you’ve read here are the exact statements our fast metabolism dieters submitted to us.

I have been trying to lose weight for several years. Once I finally got my thyroid levels correct I started to lose weight very slowly. Then a friend of mine on SparkPeople.com. which a social network for people who are trying to lose weight in a healthy way. Anyway, she kept blogging about how she was losing weight just by eating according to the FMD plan. I was really skeptical at first but the more she blogged about it the more I wanted to try it. I finally bought the book and I lost 10 pounds the first 28 days with minimal exercise. The 2nd 28 days I lost 15 pounds doing more exercise but still according to the guidelines in the book. I have a lot of endocrine issues due to a brain tumor that I had removed when I was young. I’m happy to say now that I have taken off more than 33 pounds. I love the eating plan! I feel better mentally and physically. I sleep better and am probably the happiest I’ve ever been. I went from a size 10 to a size 2. I still can’t believe I can wear a size 2! Doing the Fast Metabolism Diet was/is the best think I could have ever done for myself. After seeing my success with the Fast Metabolism Diet my doctor said she was going to do it herself. 🙂 My mom just started the eating plan too. Thank you so much for writing the book, Haylie!!”

– Cathy Trulson

One year ago, I started the FMD. My mother-in-law thought I might like the book–she knew I was trying to lose weight and get in control of my diabetes. My sugars were on the rise and my doctor said I’d need to go on medication unless something changed drastically.

I have done so many fad diets in my life that I had all but given up on my metabolism. Nothing seemed to work anymore. I was discouraged and depressed. Especially because I thought I was eating pretty darned healthy already.

But . . .

I read the book. I decided to make it a game. I knew some things would be hard (e.g. giving up cheese, nuts, and scotch every night as a snack) but I’m very competitive. I told myself I could win.

I didn’t cheat along the way. I stuck to the plan. I still do.

It’s been one year of eating healthy, exercising, and gaining control of my health to the extent that I can control it.

I’ve lost 50+ pounds to date. My pant size went from a 36-inch waist to a 30-inch waste. And, though it’s all in my mind . . . I feel taller.

I’m 46. I now weigh what I did in high school. I should have saved my high school clothes. They’re back in style and they’d fit me now. For fun, the other day I put on my high school choir tuxedo jacket and it fit me. Crazy.

My body was weak. I hated exercise. Not anymore. I used to not be able to even do one chin-up. Now, I have a chin-up bar in my office that gets regular use. I look forward to exercise and weight training.

My sugars are amazing. My doctor says to keep doing whatever it is I’m doing.

What I’m doing is sticking to this new lifestyle. I eat amazing food. I eat plenty. I enjoy my life. I look great. I feel great. Opps, gotta go. Time for a snack and some water. Thank you, Haylie!”

John Voelz

I started FMD at the beginning of September. After my first round of 28 days I had lost 10 lbs. I feel better, my clothes are getting looser and I don’t look at this as a “Diet” because that word usually means something bad or restrictive, I look at this as a new way of eating and I am so happy. My husband has joined me on this journey and we are making our children aware of the choices that they are making as well. I am excited because this is just the beginning, I still have about 60lbs to go but for the first time in ages I feel like I can get to my goal weight!!1 Thanks so much to Hayllie and the FMD Team and to a great support group of friends in person and online!!!”
