The Metabolism Solution by Lisa Lynn
Are you ready to lose 1 pound a day? Have you tried every weight loss plan under the sun? Don’t give up in frustration; The Metabolism Solution will make it faster and easier. What makes The Metabolism Solution different? It will teach you how to safely harness the power of your metabolism to lose weight and melt belly fat fast. You will learn the right way to work out to boost your metabolism with the best part being seeing results the first day after your first 30-minute workout. You will learn how to address your weight loss and fitness issues from the inside out, allowing you to focus on what created the weight gain in the beginning and how to correct those issues. Do you love delicious food? You’ll adore Lisa Lynn’s 100 irresistibly delicious fat blasting recipes. The Metabolism Solution is the perfect roadmap for not only transforming your body, but changing your whole life.
Lisa Lynn started out in her journey like many of us, a little over weight. And just like us she followed the fad diets, exercising almost continuously, and doing whatever seemed like the new fad. But just like us she didn’t see results. Then she started researching weight loss. Everything from what we really need to eat, supplements that can help, and what exercises will provide real weight loss. She was known as the personal trainer that got results when she was asked to train Martha Stewart. From there she has gone on to create her own supplement line and be a guest on the Dr. Oz show. Clearly she must know what she is doing.
The Metabolism Solution is Lisa’s routine put in book form. I love how everything is laid out in an easy to read and use format. But I recommend you read the entire book before you just jump to the recipes and exercise sections. There is a lot of information and research behind everything Lisa says. When reading the first part of the book on what Lisa was going through to try and lose weight I could see my own fight. I love how she tells you all about how almost everything you are doing is wrong, that you cannot eat nothing and exercise 8 hours a day and expect weight loss. How fad diets are just that and you may lose some weight but how it will come back twice as been when you stop following them.
From there you learn about the different supplements that Lisa has discovered and how they work in your body. Lisa has created her own line of supplements and protein powders. The best part of this section is how she says you can find similar products everywhere. But the question is about the quality you are buying. That if you are going to be using these supplements you better have high quality. Also, if you are like me and don’t have a lot of money to spare on supplements ones to start with.
From there you will learn about what exercises work best at helping to burn off fat and lose weight. Guess what, you don’t have to run 20 miles a day or lift weights like a body builder. You will learn how to exercise smarter not harder.
You will also learn what to eat, how to cook it, and in what portions. There is a science to your meals and when you should eat what. The best part is there are some great, easy recipes to get you started. But there is also a guide for you to follow for what to eat and when. I love how the hard part is done for you. No more panicking over what you are eating, no more over eating, and no more causing horrible craving and dreading 2 hours on the elliptical machine to burn those calories off.
I personally love the last portion of The Metabolism Solution. Along with proper exercising and eating you must also treat your spirit, the inner you. You will learn to love yourself; something that I admit can be tough when you have spent so many years talking down to yourself because of your size (speaking from personal experience). If you can’t learn to love yourself and a higher power how can you expect to be a better person physically and mentally? I think this is something that is skipped in almost everything you learn about losing weight and getting into shape. I also think that this is one of the missing links that we need when going about any change.
In the end, if you are looking to lose a couple pounds to several, learn exercises that are really beneficial, and learn about supplements and meals to help get you on your way, this is the book for you. I have not seen a book this well put together on losing weight. Stop the fad diets and the hours upon hours of exercise. Stop eating bad diet foods and start living a better life that will lead to a better you physically and mentally.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

1. Most people say eating healthy costs too much, does boosting your metabolism cost a fortune?
This couldn’t be further from the truth and I actually felt the same way when I first started losing weight, but what I never kept track of was eating out. All of the coffees I was drinking every day, my junk food binges (let’s call them what they really are) and once I did keep track, I was flabbergasted at how much I was spending and didn’t pay attention to! Not buying it? Try keeping an expense journal and see how much you’re spending on that glass of wine or eating out and you’ll be shocked to find out you can afford that trainer/coach after all—we all spend more than we think!
2. What do you say to people who say they hate fish and vegetables?
LOL. In person I ask how old they are! Not to be snippy, but because at some point we all have to start doing the right things for our health and everyone has at least 3-4 veggies they will eat so I suggest focusing on those and learning how to cook them in a way that they LOVE not just like. You should enjoy what you eat, but if we allow ourselves to make excuses as to why we have to keep eating junk food we will always struggle with our weight. I too hated veggies and when I began to lose weight I began to try new things and go out of my comfort zone. I felt like I was OFF plan but I was more on than ever! I still hate clams and steamers but now I crave veggies every day and I love new things like caviar and egg whites. (You’ll see this in my next book) My whole family is used to trying at least one new food item each week. Each one of us picks a new food out weekly and we all have to try it. If we don’t like it, we are allowed to spit it out!
3. Do you think Doctors agree with this “fast weight loss” approach?
Most doctors want to know what their patients are doing that is finally working. Not only do they lose weight, they also lower blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels not to mention joint and arthritis conditions also begin to ease up. What doctor wouldn’t love that! In fact, they usually end up calling to find out what the secret is! Doctors are happy to have their patients make healthy changes, and a lot of these people were already being told by their doctor that they would die if they didn’t do something about their weight and health. Many of them had already had gastric bypass surgery or bariatric surgery and almost always are plagued with extremely slow metabolisms so nothing else worked until they tried boosting their metabolism with thermogenic eating combined with supplements and light exercise. What’s not to like?
4. Does everyone lose 1 pound a day?
YES! If they follow the plan everyone loses 1 pound a day every day until they reach goal weight. The only people who don’t lose are the ones who don’t do what they are supposed to. If you do it, it works! This is a program that works no matter how old you are or how sluggish your metabolism is. The only thing keeping anyone from losing weight is excuses. It’s good for everyone who wants to lose weight.
5. For whom is this “Metabolic Boosting” type of diet particularly good?
A metabolic boosting diet is good for anyone who needs or wants to lose weight. It’s for the person who has tried every diet on the planet, yet no matter what they did, they still couldn’t lose weight. It’s also very good for pre-diabetic people or those who suffer with syndrome X or metabolic resistance, not to mention people who exercise and don’t see results. Of course it’s also good for people with thyroid conditions and especially females who are over 35—-due to hormonal changes that make losing weight very hard.
6. Who shouldn’t eat like this?
Everyone can benefit from eating thermogenically; even your dog can be healthier! If you really can’t put weight on I suggest adding more protein in the form of chicken, and carbs such as quinoa, and fats like avocados and almonds to your diet so you stay healthy and keep weight on. You can’t find a healthier diet!
7. Does everyone feel better after losing weight this way? What are the benefit’s?
Yes. Not only does everyone feel better, they say they felt better after drinking the first metabolic boosting protein shake and that they felt better than they have ever felt. Cravings disappeared and they could taste food for the first time in their life.
Research, working out with friends, shopping and playing with my dogs!
9. Being a Mom is hard enough and I see you have 2 kids (ages 14 and 20) and 4 dogs. How do you get it all done and still find time to write such a comprehensive book?
Scheduling, planning and getting up early before anyone else is up. I get a lot more work done in the morning so it’s worth going to bed early.
10. Would you write a book again?
