Book Description

Do you keep gaining weight, despite your efforts to diet? Do the pounds accumulate around your tummy? Do you feel tired, irritable, and unable to focus? If you answered “yes” to any of the above, you may be one of the millions who have Metabolism B, an inherited condition that causes your body to overprocess carbohydrate foods into excess body fat. There is a reason that some people can eat all they want (and seemingly never gain a pound), while the rest of us fret over every carb. Diane Kress, a registered dietitian and weight-loss specialist, has helped thousands with Metabolism B lose weight—and keep it off—with her revolutionary, scientifically based program. Now she shares its secrets here. Among the many life-changing elements of The Metabolism Miracle, you will discover:

• The reason why cookie-cutter approaches to dieting (subtracting calories burned from calories consumed) cannot work for those with Metabolism B
• The tools to lose weight and reprogram your metabolism permanently
• A foolproof method to improve your cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar
• The return of your energy, focus, and sense of well-being
• Sample menus to help you take it one day at a time
• Delicious recipes (including vegan) tailored to match each step
• An active lifestyle plan to maintain your newfound body weight.

As someone who struggled with Metabolism B for years, Diane Kress knows firsthand the frustration of diets that don’t work. Based on the latest research, her own experience, and the experiences of her clients, she has developed this groundbreaking plan to help you take back your life—starting today.

When you prominently use such a strong superlative word like "miracle" within the title of a diet book, then you had better be confident in your ability to deliver the goods. Registered dietitian Diane Kress has done her homework and identified a unique issue that inflicts upwards of 60 percent of the population and many of them don't even know it. It's called Metabolism B and requires a way of eating that isn't exactly embraced by the nutritional gatekeepers of our day.

How many of us have gone on diet after diet for years without ever keeping off any weight that has been lost? I've done it way too many times to count, but Kress explains that for some people it may not be our fault that we have struggled so much. And the unsightly belly fat is the worst all the while walking around too tired to exercise, hungry almost constantly, and wondering if this is the best life has to offer you. It's a depressing state that nobody should endure.

People with Metabolism B are different because we (yes, I'm one of them!) cannot eat an excessive amount of carbohydrate without packing on the pounds. Kress is also a Met B, so she understands the struggle just like we do and has developed an effective plan for combatting this once and for all. It's not calories in, calories out, it's not eating disgusting low-fat and fat-free foods, and it most certainly is not mustering up the willpower. There's a three-step process outlined in this book that give you all the tools you need to lose weight and keep it off for good!

Basically, you go through eight weeks of what Kress calls "Carb Rehab" as a means for giving your pancreas a chance to slow down on insulin production, heal and detoxify your liver, and allow fat cells to begin shrinking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metabolism Diversity July 17, 2009
All you have to do is look around to realize that people are different. If you're a pear, you gain weight in the hips and thighs. If you're an apple, you gain weight around the middle. I know someone (the husband of one of my friends) who first gains weight in his face! The fact is while we can be classified into general categories, we are all really quite different from one another in every way, including our metabolisms.

It should be no surprise to anyone that metabolisms come in different models. Many of you have friends or family members who can eat whatever they want and maintain a healthy weight, while you may have been fighting your weight your entire life.

For example, take my sister and me. No one in the world is as genetically close to me as my sister. Same mother, same father, same height, same eye color, same hair color, and only 15 months apart. That's about where the similarities stop. I'm a pear; Cindy's an apple. I'm 58 years old with no signs of diabetes or prediabetes, while at 57 Cindy has been trying to manage her type 2 diabetes for nearly 20 years. So close genetically and yet so different.

I didn't buy this book for me ... I bought it for my sister, but I have been reading it so I can help her. I now know why we are so different ... I have Metabolism A; Cindy has Metabolism B. If you have a roll around the middle and gain weight easily, you may have Metabolism B like my sister. If you do, you need to order this book today!

Diane Kress, who struggled with her own Metabolism B, has come up with a three step program which will teach you how to live a life in harmony with your own unique metabolism.

Step One is carb rehab.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a miracle! May 8, 2009
By Beth
For years I tried all kinds of diets saying to myself they should work if I really follow the rules, but they didn't. I thought I failed. Yet deep down I knew there was more to it. I'm not that lazy, yet the scale said otherwise. Then I learned about The Metabolism Miracle...and it is a miracle. In very clear language Diane Kress explains why my physiology doesn't fit the mold of all those other diets. She tells me why I am different and why those other diets will never work for me; something I knew but didn't understand. And it's backed up by fact based on Diane's research and physiology of the human body. A lot this has been known for a long time, yet no one has put the puzzle together like Diane has before. The book is full of information on how my body's metabolism works. The book explains each phase of the program in easy to follow steps and how your body will react to each step and it's full of data supporting each phase. In reading the book it seemed like there was an answer to each possible question - what if I slip (there's a plan to get back on track); what types of foods can I eat (not only are there sample menus, there are pages and pages of recipes); what do I do if I go out to eat; etc, etc. The book will be a reference book for me for years to come. I really am excited that I've found where I belong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vetarian/Vegan friendly December 29, 2010
By rvtgirl
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'll keep this brief since I even get a little side tracked reading lengthy reviews. :)
I'm vegan, insulin resistant and hypothyroid. I run nearly every day but am still 20 pounds overweight. I've worked with a local nutritionist with minimal success for over a year. I've read the insulin resistance diet and although it was good, not near the caliber of this book. Frankly, I learned more about why I am the way I am in this book. And I learned how to finally do something about it.
I've read many negative posts about being a meat diet and that can't be true because I'm doing it and feel great. It isn't just another low-carb really explains why my body doesn't metabolize a bagel the same way my friend does. And why she is skinnier than me even though I work out 5 days/week and she never does. I finally feel like i have true direction and CAN do it. I had seriously given up and was ready to just accept whatever happened but not anymore, I'm thankful I purchased this book.
The kindle version for the arrow charts are hard to read but are printable off the books website, so don't worry....everything else reads fine on the Kindle.

She owns and directs her private practice; The Nutrition Center of Morristown in Morristown, NJ.

In January 2010, the UK's Daily Mail serialized the program and gave it front page coverage over a four day period. The book is now licensed in 6 languages and is a world-wide phenomenon. The website: features media coverage, in-depth information about the program, and more information on Diane Kress.
As of January, 2011, Kress has personally taught The Metabolism Miracle program to over 6000 patients and is now in communication with a world-wide base of successful followers.
