The Metabolism Solution: The New Way to Lose Weight + Another Giveaway!

I can tell it's a new year because I'm reviewing a diet book, well... rather a lifestyle change book. January 1st, millions of Americans make the resolution to get back into shape. This generally lasts about two weeks, and then people say "to hell with it." For those few that really want to stick with it and have an iron resolve then I say, read this book! This book is not for the faint of heart. If you want the diet fad of the week or want an easy fix, then walk on by. Lisa Lyn's metabolism solution works (so I read, I haven't the monies to try it out personally) if you stick with it. Lisa, a celebrity fitness and nutrition expert, tells her personal journey and then goes into depth about supplements, the LynFit difference, thermogenic eating, serving sizes, workouts, setbacks, God, and ends with recipes. There's a little bit of everything in this book. It's not easy to stick with her plan, there is rigid structure, but if you do the payoff is great (lots of photos and testimonials in the book to prove it). If this book/ lifestyle change were more vegetarian friendly and if I had the money I would definitely give it a shot. The supplements, shakes, and bars aren't exorbitant, as diet material goes, but for a broke librarian, they're still a bit out of my reach (products available That being said, this book still has a lot of great advice to offer on leading a healthier lifestyle. Portion control, healthy recipes, good supplements, and workout tips can all be gleamed from this book without having to buy all of Lyn's other products.

Overall, a great book for someone with the willpower and wallet to change their lifestyle. The layout and quality of the book isn't as impressive as I would have imagined for a celebrity fitness expert but maybe she's trying to save readers money. Who knows, it's not distracting or anything, so honestly I don't know why I even mentioned it. Can be repetitive at times, but it is chock full of information!

I received this book for free from iRead Book Tours in return for my honest, unbiased opinion.

  1. Erin, you make a great point about millions of Americans making a resolution to get in shape on January 1, and lasting two weeks. I imagine that if anyone were to buy Lisa's book and follow it to the letter, they would lose weight and feel better. But for how long?

    The key is to change our lives, not our diets. To make an honest commitment to ourselves to feel better, live better, love better. We know what to do: eat right and exercise. We know the forces arrayed against us: our own sloth abetted by interests that want us to sit, watch and buy.

    My advice? Start easy, and by loving ourselves, not hating who we've become. Find 20 minutes to get outside and take a walk. Set aside a half hour for the gym. Eat some yoghurt and oats in the morning. Get rid of the sugar and the wheat.

    If we try to make to large a change to quickly, we will fail. The effort involved is too much for most of us. But little steps at a time, all in the same direction, can lead to miraculous results.
