My doctoral dissertation was on obesity in childhood and thus I have an interest in weight management. This book takes a look at the science and gives the reader valuable information on the role of metabolism in establishing and maintaining healthy weight. As the author appropriately points out "there is so much bad weight loss information out there, it can be hard to know what advice is correct and what advice really works."

How many people, despite their honest efforts find that their weight won't budge from a set point? The author lays the groundwork for her approach with a review of the Bermuda Triangle of Fat.

Processed foods, stress, and lack of good sleep (topic of my own book) are your enemies. She educates the reader of the value of good sleep and how to burn fat all night long without exercising.

In the Metabolism Reboot Diet, Johnson takes you by the hand wand provides step-by-step instructions in how to reboot your body's energy level and lose weight for good in a healthy way. Her Metabolism Reboot food rules are a clear example for the reader to easily follow. She teaches you how to switch from being a sugar burner to being a fat burner. Now that's a recipe for success. I highly recommend this book. It could add years to your life.

I'm a "how/why" person, and I always do better when I know how something works, or why something functions the way it does. So I LOVED that aspect of this book! It explained many scientific principles without being overwhelming, and went beyond much of what is explained in typical diet books. I liked how the author compared this diet to other diets, and explained the differences between them. I also appreciated the attention to "personal responsibility", a factor often not discussed in weight loss books. I'm also a big fan of coconut oil, so I'm eager to try the coconut macadamia fudge -YUM!

Everyone wants to lose weight. Tell me something I don't know. This book is so much more important than just a typical diet book. In our modern society we are all stressed beyond belief and certainly recognition. Even if you have a job, a happy family, a svelte figure that's easy to maintain, a beloved who is perfect . . . if your eyes are open and your ears work, there is much that is stressing your system and can shorten your life. The explanation alone about the human hormone cortisol and how it wreaks havoc with our bodies and how to shift this one little element you are probably even unaware of is worth the price of this book.

The author is so complete in answering every question I've had about my metabolism and how it really works. The how and why is always on my mind when reading someone else's ideas about dieting. Ms. Johnson gives a wonderful description about various foods I already eat but others I thought were 'outlawed' according to some food guru. I welcome butter and other wonders of nature back into my diet. Thanks for such a complete book!

This book was extremely informative and has really motivated me to change the way I eat. I love that is is backed by SO many insightful and scientific resources, (including studies and videos), as well as history. It really make you scratch your head and look at the myths we've been fed as a society and the scary coincidence that obesity and disease has exploded with these myths. Even though I've tried many diets before, this one makes a tremendous amount of sense and is more of a lifestyle change. I am willing to commit to that change for the promises of not only a slimmer body, but one that feels energetic, rested, and less stressed. How many diets do you know adress the stress of modern life and how much better we will feel once we tackle the stress? It is scientific, but not full of jargon. This easy-to-read, sensible, ebook is educational, motivational, and defintiely worth the price. I recommend it if you have been yo-yo dieting and desperate for a new answer that may finally work.

This is a highly-thought-out, information-packed book that will make you think. It provides the facts and the rules, and then adds a question and answer section and sample plan. I'm ready to kick into gear and make this work for me.

While I agree with other reviewers that this book contains a lot of interesting information about the science behind good and bad foods, I don't think this book offers a true "metabolism reboot" plan. After outlining the extremely strict food plan (which is not a bad thing, just note that it is EXTREMELY strict) she goes on to admit that the "maintenance phase" is that you really just have to stay on this plan forever.

She discourages adding back in any dairy (her treat to herself is one tablespoon of goat milk yogurt) and no fruit! Really, a life without fruit or dairy or any grains, forever. In my opinion this is not a metabolism reboot, or you would be able to eat these things in moderation and still maintain a healthy weight. She even mocks other plans that allow you to lose weight then put it right back on after you finish the diet. Yet this plan is the same, unless you stay on it forever.

There are plans that really do reboot your metabolism, so that you are burning so much that you can eat a lot of healthy food and even treat yourself with reasonable frequency, and still maintain your health. This plan may get you to a healthy weight (if you take all the supplements needed to get the nutrition you are missing) but it requires very strict diet, no snacking, and only 1 to 2 meals per day most days forever.

Of note is that she discourages all but the lightest of exercise for the first phase, then allows more if you wish. If you are looking for a strict diet that does not require much exercise, this may be for you.

I'm trying this as my new year's resolution. It makes sense and I read it in 2 days. I need a little practice with tracking proteins and carbs though and I'm not able to access the website. I've tried several times and all I get is advertisement for this book. I need more info and food lists and recipes.

I had just finished reading Blood Type Weight Loss: Change The Way You Live With Your Blood (Healthy Living Series) and was looking for another book that could help me lose weight easily. Of course cooking for my blood type was one thing that would help me out but I needed to make sure I was getting my metabolism really going the way it needed too. So that's how I stumbled upon this book. This is exactly what I needed to be able to get the weight to come off even faster. A better diet along with being able to break down the food faster was the perfect plan.
This book is all about the ways that you can make your metabolism work for you. It's nearly impossible to exercise all the time to lose weight. No one has the time they need to spend hours at a gym trying to get rid of those 5, 10, or even 20 pounds. What you need is a way to eat that weight off. Well you can. You need a healthy diet of course and you may need to exercise a little but if you can get your metabolism to work better than ever you'll be off to a great start.
So the first thing is to understand what your metabolism is and how you can make it work for you. Well your metabolism is what breaks down the food in your body. This means if it breaks that food down slowly, you gain weight. If it breaks it down fast however you can actually lose weight. This book teaches you how to get your body to do just that. Get it to break down your food faster and you'll already be halfway to your ideal, perfect body.
For most people it can be a difficult thing trying to find a new diet. But it doesn't need to be. In fact, you can lose weight much simpler than you ever thought possible. The key is to get the right diet. You need something that you can actually stand to eat instead of gross juice fasts or blended meals. If you don't like the food you're eating you'll never be able to stick to the diet. But with this plan you'll be able to lose weight and keep it off forever because what you're doing to your metabolism will last forever. So no matter what you eat later on in life your metabolism will still be working for you.
If you've been looking for a way to lose weight then this is a great book for you. It will help you to understand how your metabolism works and how you can get it to work better. All those skinny people that you see don't necessarily eat less than you. They just have a great metabolism that lets them eat however much they want, and not gain a pound. Don't you want to be like them?
