You must have heard about the fast metabolism diet that is gaining in popularity all over the world. Well, it’s a magic diet, so to speak, because it helps a person eat more and yet at the same time lose weight. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? The diet has been designed for ordinary people yet those with an active lifestyle may also benefit hugely from it. It focuses on three different phases throughout the week. In the first phase you have to eat lots of carbs and fruits, the next two days would be spent eating proteins and veggies and after which you will be focusing on anything at all including oils and fats.

The fast metabolism diet has been proposed by Haylie Pomroy in her book in which she claims that it is actually possible to lose up to 20 pounds in just 28 days! The book is actually a bestseller and it talks about the benefits of this type of a diet for weight loss. Moreover, it gives a roadmap for actually making the above-mentioned foods a part of your daily diet. For some people it might be a challenge to keep eating certain types of foods for two or three days in a row. But if it’s not a challenge, why would it be called a diet plan anyway? Keep in mind that you will be spending a lot of time preparing healthy and nutritious meals for yourself when you will start following this fast metabolism diet.

Below is a list of 5 things that confirm that this type of a diet is effective and even if it doesn’t help in quick weight loss, it sure is tempting!

  • The fast metabolism diet doesn’t require you to watch your calorie intake. So, you can eat as much as you want, anytime during the day and any number of servings you crave.
  • It focuses on nourishing the liver and works by reducing stress on this organ so that it can start working with renewed energy.
  • One thing that this diet achieves is activating the thyroid hormones T3 and T4 so that there would be just the right amount of both these thyroid hormones in the body. In fact, these two are greatly responsible for achieving fast metabolism and therefore the main emphasis is placed on their activation through diet.
  • It works by changing foods throughout the week, making your metabolism guess what is coming next and by doing this becoming active and fast in digesting and absorbing.
  • The fast metabolism diet has worked for many people around the globe including celebrities, sportsmen, and ordinary people like you and me.

We can all confess that dieting is not an easy thing to do and it is especially difficult and almost next-to-impossible for those who have an extremely sweet tooth. How about trying out that fast metabolism diet everybody seems to be talking about? It is worth a try since it doesn’t involve eating those bland and tasteless soups and salads all the time when you’re on a weight loss diet.


Detox tea has recently gained widespread popularity all over the world owing to its unlimited benefits in promoting overall health and well-being. As it is clear from the name, the first thing that it accomplishes is detoxification or cleansing. It is the process of removing toxic substances from the body and nourishing it from the inside. The process helps prevent disease, improve immunity, maintain optimal weight, and boost metabolism. One of the best ways to achieve this is to drink detox tea at least 3 to 4 times a day. It is recommended to follow this throughout the year but if you simply want to detoxify without losing weight, you must do this at least once a year.

Detox tea is prepared from a number of useful herbs in dried form. There is a need to boil all these in water for 5 to 10 minutes so that they can release their useful content into water. The result of this preparation is quite sweet and aromatic, and to some people it is almost irresistible. Once you develop a taste for it, you can even say goodbye to regular tea and coffee; both of which have their side effects. Coffee contains caffeine; too much of which is bad for health. Tea is addictive; once you become used to drinking tea especially in the morning, it’s not easy to quit it without having severe headache, sleepiness, fatigue, and tiredness.

This is undoubtedly one of the most beneficial uses of detox tea; it can replace your regular tea and coffee. After that, it helps in quick, effective and long-term weight loss. Most detox tea products come with ingredients that serve the purpose of appetite suppressants. Drinking this tea 15 to 20 minutes before every meal helps one to eat less and hence lose weight over a period of a few months. However, keep in mind that you will have to drink detox tea regularly in order to see some positive results in this context. Drinking it only for a couple of times would not simply do the trick.

It is a good idea to combine your detox diet with a healthy and well-balanced diet to achieve maximum benefits. Dandelion, ginger, burdock, milk thistle and juniper berry all are good for health and these are mostly the herbs detox tea products are prepared from. You can also prepare your own fresh brewed iced tea or honey ginger tea at home to gain all the above-mentioned benefits.

People nowadays suffer from many disorders or conditions that have apparently no cause at all. These include fatigue, constipation, different types of allergies, bloating, heartburn, puffy eyes, sleeplessness, and menstrual irregularity or problems. When you can find absolutely no explanation for any of these conditions, be informed that your body is in need of detoxification. Use your favourite detox tea product available on the market or prepare one at home to effectively cleanse your system and remove all those impurities that might be causing the afore mentioned health issues.

Detox tea or detox water is known around the world for quick weight loss but that doesn’t mean that slim or smart people cannot enjoy them. In fact, everybody needs detoxification every now and again regardless of their weight. Many of these healthy drinks would have diuretic properties so that water could be removed from the system for gaining health benefits. All you are going to need is a few natural ingredients and a blender or pitcher to mix them well.

Detox water is actually prepared by keeping sliced fruits or herbs in water for a few hours before consumption. This allows them to release their useful content into water.

Mint provides sweetness and cucumber is good for curing inflammation throughout the body. Make sure you don’t add any sugar or salt to keep your drink absolutely healthy.

Lemon is the best ingredient for cleansing and weight loss. Even if there is no other ingredient available, simply combine lemon and mint and drink the detox water all day long for energy, rejuvenation, and calmness. In addition, you may also use apple cedar vinegar for added benefits. All the above mentioned ingredients have rehydrating properties so they can easily replace the soda water or processed fruit juices that we are so much fond of.
