YOU Best Diets - - Metabolism Diet -

SO YOU’VE fol­lowedthe me­tab­o­lism diet for four weeks and it works for you – but you may have hit a plateau and have stopped los­ing weight or per­haps you now want to lose weight a bit faster.

Adrian of­fers some booster tips and a new carb-cut­ting ex­am­ple menu (right) to help ac­cel­er­ate your weight loss.

You can still fol­low the pre­vi­ous guide­lines and eat­ing plans but to in­crease weight loss you’ll want to get your fi­bre only from fruit and veg­eta­bles. This gives you a slightly lower car­bo­hy­drate in­take but still enough pro­tein, fi­bre and fat to keep you sat­is­fied.

Try to keep all your flu­ids kilo­joule-free too, see the rec­om­mended sub­sti­tutes in the ex­am­ple menu (right).

Boost your mo­ti­va­tion

Adrian shares his five top tips on how to keep things in­ter­est­ing:

1 Get a friend or fam­ily mem­ber in­volved and chal­lenge each other along the way. Set small goals and check in with each other about your eat­ing and ex­er­cise habits.

2 Come up with your own recipes that fit in with the plan, try some­thing new in the kitchen such as dif­fer­ent herbs and spices to stay in­spired and to enjoy the foods you eat.


Try a new in­gre­di­ent once a week. Use a veg­etable or meat you’ve never cooked be­fore to add va­ri­ety to the eat­ing plan.

4 Go to your favourite restau­rant and prac­tise or­der­ing with your diet rules in mind – so skip the chips or baked potato if that is what you’re used to or­der­ing and try an in­ter­est­ing salad with your steak.

5 Re­ward your­self when you reach a short-term goal – just not with food!
