“The Metabolism Miracle Diet” promises a lot, but does it really deliver? Before I answer this question, let me clarify one thing. “The Metabolism Miracle Diet” is my description of a book called The Metabolism Miracle by Dianne Kress.
Why have I altered the title? Because The Metabolism Miracle really does not want to be about dieting or diets, it claims that diets do not work, and yet in the final analysis, I could only come to one conclusion: The Metabolism Miracle is really a diet. So, I think it is only appropriate to describe this book as “The Metabolism Miracle Diet,” except there is just one thing: the “miracle” part is rather puzzling.
There is nothing miraculous about the fact that a balanced structured diet usually produces incredible results. I am not only talking about weight loss, I am talking about your overall health.
As for the “metabolism” part, sure, when it comes to losing weight, your metabolism does all the work, but the metabolism only works if you make it work. And if your metabolism is “broken,” if, for example, you have been overweight for many years and have diabetes to boot, do not count on your metabolism to pull out any miracles. You need to fix it first. How do you “fix” your metabolism? This question brings me to my next point.
How “The Metabolism Miracle Diet” works I do not want to oversimplify things and diminish the value of the very useful and quality information contained in this book, but at the end of the day, the whole thing pretty much boils down to one thing – carbohydrates. Specifically, as it has been known for years – if you want to be healthy, feel great, and lose weight – you have to control the quality and the quantity of carbs you consume. Sure – other things such as exercise – for example, matter, a lot, but if you do not eat a good variety of nutritious foods, and if you do not control your carbohydrates intake, no amount of exercise is going to help you lose weight effectively.
Do not get me wrong, I am not saying that “The Metabolism Miracle Diet” is just another low-carb diet. Not at all, but it does spend a considerable amount of time on the subject of carbohydrates, and its dieting approach pays a close attention to the quality and the quantity of carbs it recommends.
Can “The Metabolism Miracle Diet” help you lose weight? Absolutely, I believe so. Of course, you need to understand that nobody can guarantee that this or that eating plan will work all the time for all people, but I like this book. The Metabolism Miracle is a great book for someone who wants to lose weight and get in shape. It is not perfect, but it lays out a straightforward approach to weight loss that I think should be easy to follow for most people.
