Metabolism has become something of a buzzword in the dieting world. But what is it exactly? Think of it as your own fat-burning motor; one which can run at different speeds depending on what and when you eat.
Most people think they can outdo a bad diet with just exercise, but it’s just not the case. Fortunately, metabolic cooking looks to take the confusion out of meal time and show you how eating right for your body can be made practical, fun, tasty and affordable.
Below you’ll find my full review of metabolic cooking, including pro’s and con’s, plus a look inside to show you what to expect from the program.
What is it & Who’s it for?
Created by Karine Losier & Dave Ruel (self-confessed food and fitness fanatics), Metabolic Cooking is a healthy eating system comprised of 9 recipe books and supporting guides designed to transform and reinvigorate your diet – from the supermarket right down to cooking in your own kitchen. The program prides itself on fat-fighting, nutritionally-fulfilling recipes which are quick and easy to make that anyone can follow.
If you’re one the many people who’ve ever felt lost when it comes to so-called healthy eating for weight loss or simply feel you don’t have the time, knowledge or resources to create a workable diet plan, metabolic cooking is for you. It’s equally good for the health-conscious individual as it is for those looking to get started.
A look Inside…
Metabolic Cooking is a digital program which you access online. Upon purchase you’ll be met with an online portal through which you download, access and view the recipe books and bonus materials (PDF file format).
Metabolic cooking: Pro’s
- Variety: There’s a common misconception that eating for weight loss needs to bland and boring. Sure, changing what and how much you eat are both important, but they don’t have to be at the expense of variety, flavor and enjoyment. With over 250 recipes, metabolic cooking does a good job of keeping things feeling fresh. With every meal time and type covered, I was rarely stuck for ideas and had no issues in finding something suitable – even for the fussiest eater. The recipes were fun to make – and were tasty, too.
- Quality ingredients: Metabolic cooking uses real natural ingredients – there’s no diet pills/shakes or other rubbish, so you can rest assured that whatever you’re eating won’t just taste good, it’ll be good for you too.
- Macro-nutrients: They’re in everything we eat and to a large extent govern what happens inside our body. Each recipe in Metabolic Cooking contains a breakdown of these displayed as Protein, Carbohydrates and Fat (PCF). They also include a total calorie count for each recipe. I really like this system as it’s easy to see what you’re eating and why. It also makes keeping track of how many calories you’re consuming at each meal a cinch, which is crucial for weight management.
- Presentation: The look and feel of a program is important, especially in a recipe book where images and colors play such a big role in generating appeal and anticipation. Metabolic cooking looks clean and fresh. The pictures are crisp and accompanied by an easy to follow recipe and set of instructions.
- Supplemental guides: In addition to the recipe books, you get some pretty cool bonus material with guides covering topics including supplements, food logs, shopping lists, fat loss optimization, saving money and how to create your own meal plans. These are great additions and help make metabolic cooking feel more well-rounded and complete. After all, recipes are one thing, putting it all together to form a sustainable weight loss plan is another!
- Try it out: Metabolic cooking comes with a 60 day money back guarantee, so you can try the program risk-free.
Metabolic Cooking: Considerations
Up-sells: Should you chose to try metabolic cooking, there are a few up-sells once you progress past the checkout page. These are optional (you can skip them at the bottom of the page), but they are something to be aware of. These include 12 week done-for-you meal plans, lean dessert recipe book and metabolic exercise program. I want to stress, these are not necessary, but can be helpful additions.
Supplements & stevia: A handful of recipes include the use of a protein powder (mainly for smoothies). This is a small added expense you may need to factor in, but a quality protein supplement is well worth the price. Finally, stevia, a natural sweetener, is occasionally listed as an ingredient. You can of course always leave it out or substitute in something else if desired (i.e honey, birch/coconut sugar).
Exercise: I know, it’s called metabolic cooking, not exercise. Still, getting active regularly shouldn’t be overlooked as part of a healthy lifestyle. Metabolic cooking would make an excellent addition to any exercise plan and has the power to turbocharge your results.
Metabolic cooking scores an 8 out of 10 rating from me and is a program I’d happily recommend to anyone looking for a neat and simple solution to healthy eating.
It covers everything you could possibly need to know about food, its effects on the body and how to maximize its fat-burning potential.
PROMO: For a limited time, you can get Metabolic Cooking for just $10 bucks. This is a sweet deal and awesome value for money.
