Great book! This is such a shift in thinking and I love where she is going with all of it. She says "The thyroid is your master gland for metabolic function, in fact every cell in your body has a receptor site for thyroid hormones. Your body burns the most calories when it's repairing (not exercising) that's how you can lose 2-3 lbs when you are sleeping!. If repair is slowed because your cells don't have enough "fuel" from the thyroid hormones you stop optimal repair and function- which means you slow your metabolism and weight loss!" Exercise done too intensely for YOUR body raises cortisol and that whole negative feedback loop discussed in happens all over again - cortisol-hormones-thyroid. SO GOOD!!!
A simple approach to solve any inflammatory issue. Good food that tastes better than any meds on the market. Easy and effective!
I have been following Lyn-Genet’s program as outlined in her first book, The Plan, for 2 years with wonderful results. Not only have I found the key to permanent weight loss and an end to debilitating seasonal allergies, but The Plan taught me how to listen to my body and pay attention to the signals it provides when certain foods work or don’t work for me. The Plan Cookbook is a mainstay in my kitchen, and now The Metabolism Plan is helping me fine-tune the exercise routines that work for my best health. As a personal trainer, group fitness instructor, and owner of a gym, I used to exercise constantly and still gain weight. The Metabolism Plan provides a clear explanation of how the thyroid works and addresses all the other factors (besides diet and exercise) like sleep and stress that impact our thyroid health and thus our metabolism in a way I can understand and follow. Using The Metabolism Plan protocol, I found I can spend just 22 minutes every other day working out to maintain my weight and improve my body composition. Now I have more time, more energy, and I feel great! Thank you, Lyn-Genet Recitas for this amazing and groundbreaking contribution to the health and wellness field!
This book is a health bible. A fun one! Imagine going to a spa with your best friend and eating delicious food . Everything that is prepared is nutritionally balanced , clean and good for you. Welcome to the Metabolism Plan. This book is not like other " diet " books out there. This is a personalized anti-diet book. Throw all those ideas of what you think a diet is and welcome the science of finding out what makes your body happy. I am an RN and have been studying health and diet for over 30 years. Of course I have read everything. I followed the Plan as a 27 year vegetarian. I had to eat chicken on Day 3. Now that was scary at first but also eye opening. I finished the 30 Day Plan 22 pounds lighter . My thyroid was functioning well after several years of under functioning. I realized that through this amazing process anyone can shed that " middle aged" extra weight and get back to the best shape of their lives. The recipes are easy and delicious! Everything freezes perfectly. Lyn-Genet is your personal guide and friend through each chapter of the Metabolism Plan. It seems as though you have your best friend guiding you through the pages. I believe that we all need a manual on how " our" bodies work. The Metabolism Plan creates a individual private eating lifestyle based on YOU. No other diet or eating Plan does that or can offer the information that this book does. I used to run marathons. Not anymore! I was completely over-exercising and causing my body to keep weight on due to inflammation. Now I am so happy doing my 30 minutes of yoga, sprinting and weight lifting 3-4 days a week. No more 4 hour runs for me! My body is happy and leaner than ever before. I have seen many of my best friends and family lose 10 -20 pounds in 2 weeks and be able to discontinue their blood pressure , cholesterol, and depression medications while following the Plan. Amazing! The Metabolism Plan works for everyone. Food IS medicine . Get this book , read it and share it with all your friends.
