FMD week 1 overview

 The Fast Metabolism Diet by Haylie Pomroy
Monday I started the Fast Metabolism Diet (FMD).  I knew I needed to do something.  My clothes were tight and I just wasn't happy with myself.  I had bought the book over the summer and I felt I was now ready to take the next step. 

I planned meals on Saturday.  I wrote them out and posted them on my fridge.  I also entered them in the app. I used the rest of Saturday and Sunday to make some of the soups and freeze them.  My thinking was if I have everything planned out I will be more likely to stick with it. 

Here is my menu.

What I have noticed is that I am eating very very healthy, which is awesome.  I am hoping to stick with it for the full 28 days but chocolate and cheeseburgers keep sounding really yummy.  I love the recipes I have made so far.  They have been very good.  

I have lost 5 pounds in this first week!  Wahoo!!  It does make me want to stick with it when I can see results right away.

The downfall with the diet is that it is supposed to be a lifestyle change. That sounds great but I think I might miss my desserts and bread too much. I can't wait to see how I feel after the 28 days. Maybe I won't crave those things. Also some of the items you are supposed to use to cook with are difficult to find. Plus I find eating healthy is really expensive. I don't even buy all organic and it is still costing and arm and a leg. I hope I can continue with the program.

I have setup some Pinterest boards with fabulous food choices for each Phase.
 Phase 1 
Phase 2
Phase 3 
Go check them out.

I will keep you updated.  Are you making a lifestyle change for 2014?  Leave a comment of what you are doing.

  1. Great job! Keep it up! Everyone keeps telling me if I stay off Coke long enough, it won't taste good anymore...I guess I haven't stayed off of it long enough, it always tastes great to me, along with candy, cake, etc....
