Do you feel hungry and tired all the time when you are on a strict diet plan? If yes, there is good news for you! Haylie Pomroy developed this  amazing diet plan for you that doesn’t require you to go on a hunger strike!  It’s called The Fast Metabolism Diet.  Haylie states that on The Fast Metabolism Diet you’re going to eat a lot and still lose weight.

Haylie Pomroy is a food coach and  the author of the New York Times Bestseller, The Fast Metabolism Diet.   Hailey Pomroy strongly supports the idea that people can lose weight by eating more food at an interval of 1-2 hours.

Eat your way to losing up to 20 pounds in 28 days by following the Fast Metabolism Diet. Eating the right foods will keep your metabolism active and support your digestive system, thereby helping you to burn more fat than you would burn when you eat fewer calories.

What you’re not going to do is count a single calorie or fat gram. Instead, you’re going to rotate what you’re eating throughout each week according to a simple and proven plan carefully designed to induce precise physiological changes that will set your metabolism on fire.

 

Fast Metabolism Diet Plan

The Fast Metabolism Diet Plan comprises three phases:

Phase One (Monday-Tuesday): Lots of carbs and fruits
Phase Two (Wednesday-Thursday): Lots of proteins and veggies
Phase Three (Friday-Saturday-Sunday): All of the above, plus healthy fats and oils
Repeat for four weeks!
