January – Fast Metabolism – Phase 2 Day 2

Day 4 of the Fast Metabolism Diet. How are you feeling? I woke up this morning with more energy than usual and I don’t miss that morning dose of caffeine…progress. I am experimenting with herbal teas. Do you have a favorite for the morning? The Numi teas with turmeric have been my “go to’s” so far but I am looking forward to branching out.

As a reminder of today’s program:

Breakfast – Protein, veggie

Snack – Protein

Lunch – Protein, veggie

Snack – Protein

Dinner – Protein, veggie

My own menu looks like this for the day:

Breakfast – 2 slices of turkey bacon scrambled with 2 egg whites and a handful of baby spinach

Snack – 1/4 cup of mixed raw nuts

LunchTurkey breast with a salad of sliced cucumbers and red onions

Turkey Breast – Cooked Frozen and Sous Vide

 

Snack – 1/4 cup of mixed raw nuts

Dinner – 1 slice of turkey bacon sautéed with shrimp. Asparagus on the side.

 

Casey and Quinn get the benefit of those lovely yolks in their dinner tonight.

Egg yolks

Egg yolks? For us??? We are digesting breakfast and keeping you company while you write.

Don’t forget your water and phase 2 exercise includes some form of weight work. Take heart, phase 3 and avocado is on the horizon.

  1. Breakfast for me both mornings of phase two was an omelet made with about 3X as many vegetables as I have typically done. 1/4 onion, 1/2 large orange pepper, large (2 cup) handful of spinach, 4-5 cherry tomatoes, All vegetables chopped and sauteed at medium heat before adding 2 beaten eggs. I am making a few modifications to the diet, even though she sternly warns against this. Used about 2 tsp olive oil and whole eggs. It was very tasty and filling. May add this recipe to my regular routine.

    • Hi Dan, i think you are doing well. More veggies, no sugar or alcohol…those are major changes. Thank you for joining us and let us know how you feel.

  2. Hmmmmm, this is a very interesting diet. Fast Metabolism, It sounds pretty good. How are you doing so far? I’m afraid I’m not one to stick to diets perse, but I have made some changes for the New Year and hope to abide by the rules I made for myself 🙂 Good luck in yours!

    • Hi Loretta, changes for better health are always good. So far a group of us have been sticking to the diet but it is only day 4. The purpose is not just to loose those holiday pounds to but make a shift in our habits. For some of us it is sugar, others caffeine or alcohol. During the holidays it is all too easy to get into a rut…glass of wine every night or cookies with afternoon tea or slices of rich cheese for a snack (one of my own). By getting out of the rut we can still have those things, but the habit is broken and it is a conscious choice.
