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!!”

“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!”
“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!!!”
