Fast Metabolism Food Rx is the first book I have read by Haylie Pomroy. This fascinating book offers food plans as a prescription for seven health issues: Digestion problems, Fatigue and low energy, Hormonal issues including PMS and Menopause, High cholesterol, Brain issues like depression, anxiety and forgetfulness, blood sugar issues, and immune/auto-immmune disorders. I found it to be well-written and interesting to read.
I found this book to be very interesting. I like the idea of using food to help heal our bodies over medication whenever possible. Haylie encourages readers to work with their doctors to make changes but she also encourages patients to use food to improve health, either eliminating or cutting down on medication by working with their doctor. This book becomes especially credible to me when Pomroy shares her own health issues and how food has made her feel so much better without medications. . .and she has doctors who work with her and listen. She encourages readers to seek out health professionals who listen to them too. It isn't a diet plan although readers may lose weight following the eating "prescriptions" that Pomroy lays out. While she gives basic foods to eat on each prescription plan, she also shares ways you can change out a food or two, for something similar, if you have an allergy or aversion to one of the foods on her prescription lists. This book is about regaining health as much as possible through making lifestyle changes. She also shares recipes in the book to help readers follow the eating plans with tasty meals and snacks. Pomroy has more recipes are available on her website because she wants to see her readers succeed, she says.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone with these issues wanting to make changes to feel better. Fast Metabolism Food Rx has a lot of good information in it. It wasn't a fast read for me because I wanted to absorb all of this information and make use of it, but it was a good read.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
