Fast Metabolism Portion Sizes

I picked up this book a couple of days ago when it was recommended by a technician at the clinic I go to. She and I are of a similar age and stage (59/60), and she was able to lose 20 pounds fairly easily, about the amount I'd like to drop. She highly recommended this way of eating!

I'm on Day 1 of Phase 2 (a high protein, low fat, low carb phase). Doing fine. One thing that's odd to me: On the plan, portion sizes are geared to how many pounds you want to lose. There is a basic set of recommended portions for those who want to lose 20 or fewer pounds, and other sizes for losing 20+ pounds. There is no difference in portion sizes for males vs. females, large-boned vs. slim-wristed. Haylie insists that one avoid reducing portion sizes to speed weight loss, but at a small-framed 5'2", I truly don't think I should eat as much as a 30-year old, 200 lb. man who wishes to lose 20 pounds.

There are quite a few "non-success" stories on Haylie's site, and reading these is discouraging. I'm going to give it my all, however, and see where I end up. I don't expect to lose 20 pounds in 28 days, but any downward movement of the scale will be most welcome, and long overdue.

I might add, if you decide to try this WOE, go ahead and get the app. It's $2.99. You can plan your day of eating very quickly and you are prompted to choose the correct type of foods for your phase. You can even track the ounces of water you drink (I'll never get it all in!).

lst week

I am 65 female with over 40 lbs to lose - I take synthroid =T4 (thyroidectomy), micardis (blood pressure), alendronate (bone loss), ibuprofen (aches) and supplement with MSM and Biotin for skin, hair, and nails.
Before the Fast Metabolism Diet I worked out with weights and performed cardio on alternating days at a gym.
During FMD I followed the instructions - P1 one day of cardio, P2 one day of weights, P3 never got to here - read on -

P1 lst day - I am stuffed to the gills
2nd day - couldn't finish the Dinner - 3/4 more bites (felt like choking)
P2 Meat, meat, meat, beans, yuck after two days - and I usually eat lowcarbing - I should be loving this
P3 1st day - In the evening my stomach felt upset - took a long time to settle (if it ever really did)
2nd day - Couldn't eat all required Breakfast (oatmeal, nuts, berries, coconut oil, cucumber slices) - felt sick to my stomach (would I vomit?) YUCK! Well, I did - TWICE! Don't remember the last time in my life. Spent the morning either trying to nap or in the bathroom. Finally settled enough to take Pepto-Bismol equivalent(generic store brand). My esophagus felt like acid. It took until noon to feel well enough to move around - felt lightheaded and weak all day. Needless to say, I didn't eat on schedule.
END OF DIET
So, currently I am eating carefully, planning to follow the prescribed routine 2 days carbs, 2 days protein, low carb, 3 days fats and I will pick the Phase appropriate foods from the lists. (Might make some additions like Whey low carb protein powder with fruit, oil, grain as appropriate for the phase).

I understand the concept of filling up on certain nutrients at specific times and in the sequence of the Phases. I think the quantities are just too much as prescribed. The book does not account for your overall size. Would someone who is 5'2" 50lbs overweight eat the same quantity as someone who is 6'2" 50lbs overweight? Would male be the same as female? I don't know the answer.

Anyone still on this plan or thinking about it?

I realise that this is a 2013-14 thread, but I'm hoping to meet with other FMD users and share progress as well as life in maintenance.
I'm into week 3 , Phase 2 and have learned so much from the plan as well as losing weight. My main goal was to mend my metabolism after years of chronic dieting. I have quit all dairy, wheat, saturated fats and caffeine thanks to this plan and the clever lady who put it together... Hayley Pomroy.

Hope you'll join me soon.

Starting tomorrow

My Day 1 of the FMD is ready to go tomorrow. The 'sins' of the holiday season (currently 122.5 lbs) need a check and as I enjoy the foods of this plan I hope to continue with it in a modified form after the 28 days. Hoping to lose 2-3 lbs by January 28 .

Day 1 - January 1

I took my measurements and weight to start the day and had a brisk 35 min walk. You are suppose to eat within 30 mins of waking, but as I overslept this was an hour.
BRK: 30 g oat bran ( I substitute this for the steel cut oats as it's easier to make in the microwave + it has similar benefits)
1 large pear chopped into small cubes and added to the OB with 1/2 cup water.
SNACK: 1 large pear
LUNCH: 2 cups salad, 1/2 large can tuna, 1 cup cooked brown rice, 1 large pear
SNACK: 1 large pear
DINNER: 4 oz (120g) chicken breast (steamed), 7oz (200g) green beans, 1 cup brown rice

Water : 64 fl.oz. (2 litres)
Herbal Infusions : 1-2 cups
Steamed green tea: 1 cup

Day 2 - January 2

Small loss of 400g (almost a pound) and the carb loading was very satisying. Although we're not suppose to count calories, I tallied them at 1422 cals.
Tomorrow and the following day will be a very low carb with cals tallying 800. Seems similar to a 5:2 plan, as the last 3 days of the week are around 1450 with the foods I'll be eating. I'll post the menu for Day 3 & 4 tomorrow.

I hope I won't have this thread all to myself

"Has Anybody Seen My Girl? (Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue)" is an American popular song that achieved its greatest popularity in the 1920s.

Just remembered this old song!

Day 3

Another small loss this morning now 121.9 lbs (55.3 kg) so not far to go.

So my meals for Days 3 & 4 (both days calorie count is 793):

BRK: 3 egg whites and 125g spinach ( I buy it frozen and microwave it the night before)
SNACK 1: can of sardines in water
LUNCH: 1/2 large can tuna in water or 120g chicken breast
2 cups lettuce
SNACK 2: can of sardines in water
DINNER: 120g chicken breast
200g green beans

These are difficult days and I pull out the hand weights - upper body today and lower tomorrow. Days 1 and 2 were brisk walking for 30 mins, the last 3 days of the week will be a 30 min stretch /yoga session.

Day 4 - January 4

Yesterday's strict calories was worth it....down to 120.3 lbs ( 54.6 kg) this morning. Some followers of this diet have lost 20 lbs in a month, though I imagine you'd have to be obese to start with to lose that much. I'm quite pleased to lose 5. At this rate I may not need to follow for the 4 weeks, although Hayley Pomroy points out that this plan will not allow you to go underweight.
There are 3 yummy days coming up after these "fishy" two

Hi Leona,
Salmon is saved for the 'good' fats days 5, 6 & 7. For each of the 2 snacks, you can have 3 oz of tuna or 2 oz chicken or 2 oz deli meat . Google "Chewfo Fast Metabolism Diet". She does a great summary of quantities and foods.

Reached Goal

Day 5 - January 5
After 4 days I'm at my happy weight and reached goal ...119.4 lb. Goodness knows where I'll be at the end of the week, let alone end of the 28 days.

The next 3 days are very enjoyable, as are the 2 that follow.(That's why this plan fits nicely into the 5:2 regime. Here's what I'll be eating for days 5, 6 & 7:


BRK: 30g (1 oz) frozen berries + 30 g oat bran (mixed with 1/2 cup water and microwaved for 90 secs to create a tasty porridge.

SNACK 1: 2 thin rice cakes with 1/3 cup homemade hummus

Total Calories: 1430..... (60g fat, 83g carb, 102g protein) When I move to the 5:2 plan, this will be my base menu for the UP days and the 2 x 800cal days will be my DOWN days. I suppose I could start that next week, as I don't want to lose any more weight.

LCH: 1/2 can salmon + 200g (7 oz) canned diced tomato

SNACK 2: 20 almonds + 100g (3 oz) carrots

DNR: 120g chicken breast + 200g green beans + 1 tabsp macadamia oil + 1/2 cup brown rice

Total calories: 1430 (60g fat,83 g carb, 102g protein) I will use this menu for my 5 UP days and the 2 x 800 days as my DOWN days. I could start that next week, as I don't wish to lose any more weight.

Holding 119.4 and decided to continue eating this way for good. It may not be low carb, but I'm enjoying the foods and I have all the tricks under my belt now. I like the way my day is organised according to the foods I eat and exercise I do for those particular days.

Unfortunately I didn't start this time on a Monday, so I called my start day "Day 1". It's easy to plan ahead for 7 days or 14 days because you know exactly what foods and quantities you need to buy.

Tomorrow I'm back into the daily 4 pieces of fruit and 2 cups of brown rice (carbs reach to 200g mark on those 2 days). I'm eating apples this round.

My firm belief (after so many years of maintenance) is that you should stick with whatever works for you and enjoy nourishing your body with good food choices.

Week 2 - day 1
I've been the same weight now for 4 days (119.4), which is not uncommon.

Breakfast today was 2 T ground linseed mixed with 3 T oat bran and 4 oz chopped apple + sprinkle of cinnamon. The ground linseed helps with regularity.
Lunch will be the same as Jan 1 (tuna + salad), with the swap of an apple for pear and I'll have the rice with the apple as dessert.
Dinner will be 3 oz grilled chicken breast, 8 oz green beans and 1 cup brown rice + 1T french mustard.

Menu stays the same for tomorrow, the 2nd high carb day.

Week 2 Day 2

Ditto yesterday's weight, food and exercise.
Looking at tomorrow's 700 cal day and may do the egg white omlettes for breakfast and lunch.I didn't buy enough canned tuna and don't feel like another trip to the shops.

Looking forward to a average monthly weight number and measuring on the 28th Jan.I might just knock that last pound on the head, though it wouldn't upset me one bit if it didn't happen. At least I will know what can be is achieved.
I read that this plan won't let you go underweight.

Week 2, Day 3

Two days of protein + veg lie ahead. I had the usual 3 egg white + 1 cup spinach omelet and now I'm having my snack, 3.5 hrs later. To stretch the sardines further I added 1/2 cup of chopped parsley, juice of 1/2 lemon, 1/2 chopped small onion and 1 sticks of celery. ...makes for a nice change.
Weight was up 400g due to taking iboprufen (hip pain during the night), but it's only water weight.

Still not sure if I will go the full 28 days or switch to my 5:2 plan, using the menus from Phase 3 and have 2 x 700 cal days..preferably not consecutive, even though this is easier to plan for.

Week 2, Day 4

Last day eating sardines, tuna, chicken, celery, spinach and lettuce...not much joy there in 700 calories
Next 3 days will be a treat with almost 1500 cals to play with.
I've already planned the menus for the 5:2 plan, with Monday and Thursdays being my low calorie days. If I'm very good I may get away with a 6:1 ratio. That would be ideal!
Still holding some water weight from the iboprufen (120.3 today) but I've stopped that medication since the worst of the arthritis pain has abated.

Back to my happy weight of 54.2 (119.4) and to good food.
I will stick with the Phase 3 foods and mealtimes for 5 or 6 days then have 1-2 very low carb carb days. The phase 3 day has 60-80g carbs,60g good fats (no animal sources) and 102g protein. Total calories are around 1430. It's an easy plane to stick to and I don't fast at all. Eating every 3-4 hours suits me down to the ground!

I tried to get info on what you are doing, ( the foods to eat each day, etc. ) but they wanted me to down-load something first and my computer would not let me to it!!

Can you copy and paste the info here?

Thanks Much
