Disclosure: This is a sponsored post, but the review is absolutely my own. Questions? Ask me!!
Ok, I am not a dieter by nature. I am too much of a food-lover. (Obviously!) But after having 3 babies in under 4 years, my body had pretty much given up on ‘bouncing back’.
It didn’t matter what I ate, or didn’t eat… my body stayed the same and seemed to get more uncomfortable every day. I did’t feel like me anymore, but rather a miserable shadow of me, trapped in someone else’s body.
So, when I was offered the chance to try out Haylie Pomroy’s new book, The Fast Metabolism Diet, I was happy to try something new. I wasn’t very optimistic, that’s for sure, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to try, and the Hubs was on board, so we jumped right in!
(If you follow me on instagram at all, you probably had an inclination something was going on!)
I read the book, and loved it right away. Haylie has a very scientific but understandable approach to nutrition and dieting. She explains things well, so that I understood them, instead of just saying “do this because I said so”.
I was pleasantly surprised when I started losing weight right away! But much more importantly… I lost inches!!
Lots of inches actually, and all from the right places! We are a few days from being done with the diet, but Andrew has lost 12 pounds and 3 inches off his waist (and other places too!) already and I have lost 14 pounds and 4 inches off my waist (and lots of inches from other places!!).
My waist is smaller, my thighs are smaller, the fat just felt like it was melting off my frame. Even though the scale didn’t change that much (not 20 lbs, anyways, but I’m definitely not complaining!), the measuring tape proved much more important.
I will take inches lost over pounds any day! (We all know muscle weighs more than fat anyways, right?)
Ok, so the bottom line is: I am happy with the diet. I am glad we did it. I will happily recommend it, and I will probably do it again someday (even soon)!
But you don’t just want the bottom line, do you?
