If you’re looking to try a new diet book this spring, this may be the one. I knew some of the tips in Speed Up Your Metabolism, but had forgotten or stopped using them. But some of Smith’s tips were new to me. Reading the book inspired me to drop a few pounds this spring. I especially liked the list of foods that will speed metabolism. I like green tea and it would be oh, so easy to drink three cups a day.

Starting a new job last week I had to give up my “life of leisure” and start getting up early every day again. I could use some more energy and this book will definitely help me to get it. If I lose a few pounds in the process, so much better.

Enjoy! And let me know if this book helps you.


Book Review: The Ultimate Guide to Intermittent Fasting



The Ultimate Guide to Intermittent Fasting by Teresa Mary Carr

This book is about a popular method of dieting, intermittent fasting. It works with the timing of your body’s digestive system from the point at which you last ate. Author emphasizes one of the benefits of this diet as being better metabolism of food to optimize insulin and blood sugar.

Another benefit is that the diet is very simple to understand. There are very few rules and they are commonly understood; the difference is timing and combinations of these factors. Properly following this program can shed substantial amounts of weight. Many preventive benefits can also be gained through following the Intermittent Fasting program, muscle mass can be optimized, and immunity is increased. It’s very flexible and you will not have to purchase special foods. Even if you are of normal weight, this plan can benefit your health.

I really enjoyed this book as I have tried so many diets with varying rates of success. This seems like a plan I could truly stick with. I think one of the biggest selling points of this plan is that it is said to work without buying expensive special diet meals.

Ultimate Guide is a quick read and you can get started with Intermittent Fasting right away! Just remember that as with any eating plan, it’s wise to consult a doctor before beginning.

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for writing a review.
