Fast Metabolism Diet Master Lists

After my surgery I retained a lot of water and was just all kinds of icky. I gained 14 pounds by last Monday. Unreal, right?!? Between the medicines and not being able to go to Zumba for a week and a half, I was a little panicky. 

Three days ago, I buckled down. No more pain meds and I restarted the Fast Metabolism Diet. I had veered away from it, but I knew deep down this worked well for me. As of this morning, I am back down to my pre-surgery weight. 

So, we are pushing forward. 

I have eleven pounds to lose to reach my goal of 100 pounds lost. 

I pretty much plan to remain on the Fast Metabolism Diet until I reach my goal. I don't really think it will take long at all. I had slacked off quite a bit in the past few weeks. I splurged on all kinds of food, but didn't really gain until I had surgery and it slowed me down. I'm pretty sure that Zumba will keep me at a maintenance level once I reach my goal. 

I shared the basic list for eating on the Fast Metabolism Diet a while back, but I found a bigger list and it has helped me so much more! I thought I'd share it with you today...

I'm actually in love with these lists! I just can't see how you can get bored with so many options!

For dinner one night, we took lean ground beef, added some diced jalapenos and cooked them on our charcoal grill. So very amazing! 

It seems like Phase Two is normally the hardest days for everyone around here. I actually don't mind them. I'm not a huge carb lover anymore and that has helped me stick with Phase Two better. It really just comes with time. There's no secret to it. I was in serious love with pasta and bread most of my life. Once I got them out of my system, the cravings slowly went away. From time to time I will enjoy them but I don't depend on them in my diet anymore. It's actually pretty freeing on this side of things now. I never imagined I could live without them, but now I really don't miss them at all. Just do it slowly and give it time. It will happen. This is a lifestyle change and it is a process.

  1. There are so many different diets out there, it is mind-boggling and so hard sometimes to decide on what's best. Which is why I am kind of doing my own thing. But I have to say that I find this one very interesting, also the fact that it kickstarted you into the last stretch of your weight loss. This diet seems to keep a good balance of all food groups, I constantly struggle between going paleo (I like a lot of the paleo foods) and just moderating everything. I also find it very interesting what you say about the pasta and bread, I am kind of moving in that direction, too. And you have lost almost 100lbs - that's amazing! I still have about 60 lbs to go and feel very encouraged by your story. And now I will go and check out this diet. Thank you!

  2. I have alot of reposect for you Wendy and so wished I had the same dedication as you do. a year ago I had lost 55 lbs, I have since gained half of that back and am looking to take that back off plus another 10 lbs. So I was very curious about this diet and looked into it myself. I almost ordered the book on Amazon, until I read the reviews. It seems as though the reviewers stated it diet works but they found the calorie counts to be VERY LOW, between 650-750 calories per day? Is this what you found?

    1. Not at all! If you read the book, you will see that your calories are not restricted at all. I refuse to do that. I eat a lot through the day, but I eat from the lists.

    2. I completely agree, I bought the books on my phone and I refer to them all of the time I have just started two weeks ago and am down 10.5 lbs with a cheat meal of every five pounds that i lose i will allow myself to a meal of my choice no matter what day that it is.

  3. Hi Wendy -- I checked your lists with the cookbook. You've missed radishes in every phase and arrowroot, it is a vegetable found in Asian markets. I couldn't find anything else missing. I was cross referencing with highlighter to make it easier -- yellow for every phase, green for phase 1, etc.

  5. Hi Wendy,

    I'm so happy for you. I've been on FMD for 23 days and only lost 2 lbs. I've read the books and am confused on the portions. Are the portions for each phase per meal or day. For instance, on phase 3 a protein is mentioned for all meals, assuming I eat fish as a protein does that mean 6 oz per day or 30 oz per day. Thanks, Kathy

    1. Kathy I think that you should not stress on the size but to teach your mind that when your full throw it away or sabotage it like poor water over it so you wont eat it. I was the type to eat it all and then some of whatever was left. I am two weeks in and some cravings are gone and I have lost 10.5 pounds. I think my thing is drinking a lot of water and thinking of this as a diet. try it again you can do it

  8. Wendy - you really are an inspiration! I am organizing myself to get started on my journey beginning Monday of next week. I have a question for you. I have to lose more than 40 lbs. So how do I equate what 1 serving equals in a recipe in Haylie's book to how much I need to eat.
    What is one serving to me vs one serving to a person who has to lose 10 lbs is different. If you can help me out with that it would be great.

  9. So I have not read the book. When you get to stage 3 do you just stay there or do you start over at 1 until you lose the weight you want? I also would like to know about mesurments. Is the oz of protein one serving, 1 cup for vegies like normal? What about keeping track of carbs?

  10. So no calorie counting? But what about portions or serving sizes? Or is it as much as you want (within reason) as long as it's on the list for that phase?

  11. Hi. Bill from Mass. just finished my first 28 days. started Aug 15,2016 I weighted 315 pounds to 9/12/16 weight 299 pounds, at first thought no way.

This is just the start for me, I am loving my more life than ever. Now I know longer live for food, but life because of it.update in 28 days :)

  12. Wow! This has me so encouraged. I'm just about to start the FMD on Friday. I've taken the last few days to read the book and create meal plans. I have been struggling up and down with the same 20 pounds for years. I've done low(er) carb via primal/paleo plus i have many food intolerances so I'm feeling better than before since I don't eat crap but I can't keep that 20 from creeping back. Looking forward to reading more.
