Book Description

Does a strong urge to fill up on carbs sabotage your weight-loss efforts? Are you often tired and irritable, and is there a roll of fat around your middle? Now it’s easier than ever to eat great and lose weight. The Metabolism Miracle Cookbook includes more than 150 quick-and-easy, carb-controlled recipes and menus tailored to each step of The Metabolism Miracle diet plan.

Nearly half of all Americans have “Metabolism B” and unknowingly overproduce the fat-gain hormone insulin. These recipes are specifically formulated to help people with this hidden condition lose weight, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, decrease risk of or improve control over diabetes, and increase their energy.

From appetizers, soups, and salads to vegetables, entrées, and desserts ideal for family meals, readers will have no shortage of delicious options. Vegetarian and gluten-free choices are also included.

Editorial Reviews

Review, 1/7/11
“This cookbook paired with the diet plan is great for those that have excess fat around their mid section and often feel tired and irritable. The recipes in this cookbook are quick, easy and carb-controlled. The recipes fit in perfectly with the different steps of the Metabolism Miracle diet plan.”

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Low-Carb Recipes February 24, 2011
This is a mostly a cookbook to accompany The Metabolism Miracle, but it actually includes all the basics of that diet in the first 97 pages with enough information that someone could do the plan based on this book alone. The recipes are low-carb, easy to make, and use regular ingredients readily found a local grocery store and include beverages, appetizers, soups, salads, various poultry, seafood, and meat main dishes; vegetarian entrees, breakfast dishes, snacks, and desserts. These are all different recipes than what are included in The Metabolism Miracle.

The only recipe I've tried so far is the spinach-feta (crustless) pie which I liked. There are several others I have bookmarked to try such as the snow peas with water chestnuts stir-fry and a crustless quiche. The recipes indicate whether they can be used for any or all of the three steps of the program, with step one being the most restrictive and steps two and three adding more foods to the plan.

As with most diet cookbooks, my only contention is the heavy use of artificial sweeteners such as Splenda for the desserts, something I avoid. Nutrition information such as calories, fat grams, etc. are not given for the recipes; only how many servings each recipe makes. That isn't an issue for me, but those who like to keep track of such things might be frustrated by their absence. There are a few color photos of some dishes in the middle of the book.

Overall, I do like this cookbook and think it is suitable for anyone wanting healthy recipes that happen to be low-carb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great program! February 5, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book contains lots of recipes - I admit I have not made many of them yet but I'm looking forward to it - and the entire Metabolism Miracle program is outlined at the beginning. With this book you no longer need to purchase the original Metabolism Miracle. This is the updated version (there are very few changes or updates to the program)and the only thing you may miss from the original is the recipes that were included in the back.

If you review the checklist and find that you are carb sensative then this book could change your life. I've lost nearly 60lbs in six months without being hungry. It is a definate adjustment in the beginning but you quickly get used to the program and it can easily become a way of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am a NEW person.... August 20, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have tried everything including lap band, gastric bypass... with bypass I lost 35lbs and then STOPPED.
I then gained 35 lbs within 9 months.

I was so DEPRESSED because I thought there was no hope.
Then I was getting headaches daily, felt horrible, tired, cranky and finally after going to endocrinologist, he determined I had non-diabetic low blood sugar.
EUREKA... at least one condition made sense...

I then started watching blood sugar and whenever I tried to 'eat healthy', my blood sugar dropped dangerously low (one point 39 and stuttering and told my triplets next time mommy can't talk or make herself clear, call 911).

I kept eating carbs to maintain energy. Kept gaining weight.

I came across this book and thought hmmm. this makes sense.
Showed it to my GP and he poo pooed it.
My mom said.. 'you are your best doctor' and she was right...

I prepared a worksheet of her guidlines and created a chart of what I had to do each day because my memory is horrible.
And, I was overwhelmed with all the information of phase 1, phase 2, final phase etc..

I then realized... focus on phase 1, when you get close to phase 2, reread it and focus on phase 2 and don't worry about phase 3...

I took my chart and marked each item off and was religious about staying off the carbs.
I copied her 'arrow' page and put copy in purse and copy on cabinets to remind me of basic strategy and what to eat at what phase..

I started the plan...

I had HORRIBLE headache for 5 days but sure enough, after day 5.. NO headaches, no energy issues etc...
WE WENT on VACATION. I did AWESOME till the day we returned. I thought.. one day won't hurt me...

In the back of my mind I was thinking...

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoooooo Hooooooo! August 6, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
At the end of the 8 Weeks of Phase 1 I lost 14 pounds and 8 inches. This WORKS! *2014 Update at end of Review*

I wanted to keep my review short & concise but after reading how others fared on this program I thought I would share my experience too. I am Hypothyroid & in my mid-40's (there are two major issues working against me right there)! Prior to being diagnosed as Hypothyroid I could very easily lose a couple pounds if I wanted to. It took about 2 years before I was diagnosed as Hypothyroid which gave me some serious time to pack on the weight...EEK! NOTHING I did would help me lose weight. Not my clean eating lifestyle and 6 days of exercise. NOTHING! I was feeling so totally hopeless, then I found this book and began reading reviews. To the Reviewers who provided thorough Reviews...THANK YOU! It's because of your thoughtful reviews that I bought this book and that I'm on my way to being `myself' again!

I was at my wits end! I was exhausted and crashing by 1pm. Each time I ate a simple carb I was craving sugar (and I'm not a sugar gal!). I worked out 5/6 days a week, ate right (with the exception of an occasional slice of pizza...then the sugar cravings!) and NOTHING was happening! In fact, I would lose a pound and gain 2!!! I was so (SOOOO!) tired of hearing people offering their advice like "work out more", "drink protein shakes for a meal or two each day", "eat less", you name it, everyone had advice (unsolicited at that!). Seriously? You think I didn't try ALL that? I tried everything in the last year short of the Master Cleanse! The problem is, what works for one persons body doesn't always work for another! Especially when they have other things working against them.
