When multiple health challenges threatened the life of Haylie Pomroy, a celebrated nutritionist, and #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fast Metabolism Diet, it set her on an investigative journey that was life-changing—and lifesaving. Now, in her new book FAST METABOLISM FOOD Rx , she shares her personal story for the first time, as well as the powerful food programs she created based on the methods and philosophies that saved her life and helped her thrive. These same food therapies have provided profound results in her clinics where she’s treated thousands of patients for decades.
Our bodies are always talking, communicating their needs. We just need to learn how to listen. Sometimes they whisper to us—our energy is off, we just don't feel right, we have indigestion or IBS, or our body shape is morphing in ways we don’t recognize or like. Sometimes our bodies speak up and change our biochemistry in order to get our attention, by pushing our cholesterol a little higher, making us irritable, reactive, or ‘foggy.’ At other times our bodies are screaming for help, we have become pre- or full-blown diabetic and our immune systems are confused and attacking us. Every one of these health signals hides a specific problem, and for which food, not drugs, is the answer.
