When I started reading the introduction to Fast Metabolism Food Rx where the author, Haylie Pomroy, shared her own very serious medical challenges, I about hit the floor. I mean… I just couldn’t imagine dealing with all of that. Wow.
As I continued to read, I was blown away and so inspired to see how the nutritional content of food brought about such positive impactful changes in her health.
Food is powerful.
It seems so obvious that our pantries are medicine cabinets and that the nutritional content of what we’re eating directly impacts our health in both good and bad ways. Yet unless we know which foods target which specific body systems and health issues, we’re bound to do a lot of fumbling.
That’s where the Fast Metabolism Food Rx book comes in. You start by taking a quiz to determine what your body is trying to tell you.
• Do you have to drag yourself out of bed in the morning?
• Do you have digestive issues like gas, bloating, constipation, heart urn, indigestion, or IBS?
• Is your body depositing fatty tissue where it never has before?
• Has your body changed into a shape you barely recognize?
• Do you have problems with focus, memory, concentration or other cognition issues?
• Do you have high blood pressure?
There’s a bunch more, but the process helps you connect to what your body is trying to tell you, and then the book teaches you how to use your pantry as a medicine cabinet and find your specific nutritional prescription.
ABOUT THE BOOK
WANT TO FEEL GREAT, DISEASE-PROOF YOUR BODY, AND LIVE IN OPTIMAL HEALTH AT YOUR IDEAL WEIGHT?
Haylie Pomroy, celebrated nutritionist, and #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fast Metabolism Diet, shares a food prescription for the 7 most common ways your metabolism misfires and leads to exhaustion, excess weight, and illness. With her targeted eating plans you can feed your body back to a vibrant, energetic, and thriving state.
When multiple health challenges threatened the author’s life, it set her on an investigative journey that was life-changing—and lifesaving. In this book, she shares her personal story for the first time, as well as the powerful food programs she created based on the methods and philosophies that saved her life and helped her thrive. For decades now, these same food therapies have provided profound clinical results in her clinics where she’s treated thousands of others.
Our bodies are always talking, communicating their needs. We just need to learn how to listen to them. Sometimes they whisper to us—our energy is off, we just don’t feel right, we have indigestion or IBS, or our body shape is morphing in ways we don’t recognize or like. Sometimes our bodies speak up and change our biochemistry in order to get our attention, by pushing our cholesterol a little higher, making us irritable, reactive, or ‘foggy.’ At other times our bodies are screaming for help, we have become pre- or full-blown diabetic and our immune systems are confused and attacking us. Every one of these health signals hides a specific metabolic dysfunction, and for each food, not drugs, is the answer. If you’re suffering from: GI issues, fatigue, out of whack hormones, mood and cognition difficulties, elevated cholesterol, blood sugar control problems, or an autoimmune problem, Food Rx has the personalized solution for you.
In her new book, Haylie teaches us that anyone can achieve the healthy body they want from the foods they choose and use. Are you ready to eat your medicine?

In my case, Fast Metabolism Food Rx helped me realize that my foggy brain, forgetfulness and fatigue are part of menopause. Gasp. I had no idea, but now that I know, I can focus on eating foods that help manage the wacky hormone imbalances and help me feel a lot better.
Knowing that food has so much influence over my symptoms is empowering. I’m so glad I was introduced to this book, and I encourage you to take a look at it and see how you can harness the power of food for your own health betterment.
