Day 25 of the Fast Metabolism Diet: Transition
Well, I wound up transitioning sooner than I thought I would, in part because, without getting too graphic, I was in a fair amount of intestinal distress last night after a day of faithful phase 2 eating. The meat phase, as I have come to think of it, has never been my favorite. I refusedContinue reading “Day 25 of the Fast Metabolism Diet: Transition”
Day 24 of the Fast Metabolism Diet: I Have No Idea What I Weigh Now
There’s a scale at my folks’ house, but it’s so inaccurate, my parents set it to minus five pounds to make up the difference. The issue is that my dad is six feet tall and strapping, and my mom is so small, she could make a matchbox her bed.

Day 23 of the Fast Metabolism Diet: Corn Palace

Day 19 of the Fast Metabolism Diet: I Have Solved Traveling for You
I’m about to get on a train with two Gladware tubs of veggies, turkey, and hummus, and a baggie of nuts. NUTS. Go ahead and make a joke. I’ve been eating nut butter all month, a few days a week, at least, so I’m used to it.
Day 18 of the Fast Metabolism Diet: Minor Setback
No, I didn’t eat non-plan food or start guzzling gin out of my shoe in the children’s playground down the block. (Despite what the police might try to tell you.) I gained two pounds this morning, and I think it was entirely because of stress. Yesterday was the day when nothing would go right. IContinue reading “Day 18 of the Fast Metabolism Diet: Minor Setback”
Day 17 of the Fast Metabolism Diet: The Accidental Dieter
My husband has lost three pounds on this diet so far. The only problem is, he’s not on it.
