"I’m an analytical person, and I’ve spent years trying to figure myself out. I’ve always been athletic, conscious of my food intake and dedicated to health and fitness. I’ve also always had about 10-15 pounds that I would love to get rid of by any means necessary. The struggle is real!
The road to health and a great body is not always linear, and it’s easy to get discouraged when you’ve been eating 1200 calories a day and working your butt off on the elliptical machine, but the scale reflects a 2.5 pound gain overnight. What’s that about?

Because I’m always the exception, never the rule, I knew that I needed a personalized approach, which is why I’m loving The Metabolism Plan by Lyn-Genet Recitas.
Yes, The Plan was a New York Times best-seller, but I had previously been duped by books that have appeared on that list. While all of my friends were radically dropping tonnage by following the strict tenets of Atkins or The South Beach Diet, I was a sobbing emotional mess when I would catch a glimpse of a morsel of bread or a grain of rice . . . with no weight loss results. When I was a strenuous cross-fitter, doing hang cleans and thrusters like I was getting paid, the muscle maniacs in the Box were touting the Paleo Diet, which was more harrowing than 12 consecutive sets of 50 pound kettlebell swings.

I did my research and found that The Lyn-Genet Plan is more of a diagnostic than a diet, and geared to finding the foods that cause inflammation in our bodies. By removing and reintroducing suspect foods over a 20-day period, followers of The Plan are able to determine the best nutrition while avoiding foods that result in the negative effects of inflammation. If left untreated, inflammation can cause health issues prevalent in the black community, such as diabetes and estrogen dominance, which can lead to breast cancer and the ever pervasive fibroid tumors."

We have always been taught that calories mattered. That if you exercised you would lose weight, and if you exercise more you would lose more weight. But in fact, neither “fact” is true. It’s all about your metabolism and what foods work for your chemistry.

When you exercise too intensely for YOUR body, you slow your metabolism, which means that not only do you slow weight loss, but you affect EVERY metabolic and cellular function that is essential for your best health.

For some people over-exercise could be the 10,000 steps they are aiming for daily, for other’s their crossfit classes or running marathons. We are all different. Some of us have the genetics to be athletes, but most of us do not.

Counting calories? Never works. Healthy foods like strawberries, quinoa, yogurt and turkey can cause inflammation which skews everything from your hormones, to yeast upticks and thyroid dysfunction. Chronic low grade inflammation causes obesity, premature gain and even diseases like cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and auto-immune diseases.

You are working too hard to not know EXACTLY what works for YOUR body. Because if you follow the precept of cutting calories, if you exercise too intensely for YOUR body, you will SLOW your metabolism. That’s what happened to the contestants on the Biggest Loser. But it’s not just them. I see it every day, every year with thousands of our clients. Stop the madness and find out what works for YOU. That’s The Metabolism Plan.

The rest is bells and whistles. No matter what style of cooking you love, whether it’s Paleo or classic French, all meals break down into simple components: proteins, cooked vegetable, salads and perhaps carbs. The best way to approach cooking for the week is to be prepared and keep the menu simple and delicious and know what works for you and your family.
