My Metabolic Cooking Review And Opinion On The Recipes

lose weightHey! My name is Lisa and this is a review of the Metabolic Cooking Cookbook Recipe Set.

I originally came across this cookbook set while browsing online for healthy recipes. I had been on a restrictive diet for a month and although I experienced an initial weight loss, it had plateaued.

What I didn’t realise was that restricting my calorie intake had worked in the beginning but ultimately, it caused my metabolism to slow down.

I felt frustrated, hungry and miserable. Tired of eating the same bland and tasteless foods, I was searching for inspiration when I found Karine Losier’s cookbook recipes.

Desperate for a change, the photographs of delicious looking food was very tempting. Could I really burn fat by eating blueberry protein muffins and pork burgers? Unconvinced in the beginning, as time went on and the weight kept dropping, I couldn’t deny that this amazing plan was working.


What’s Included In The Metabolic Cookbook Set

The set consists of 9 cookbooks. Each cookbook deals with a different food type. The categories are:

  • Breakfast
  • Sides
  • Red Meat
  • Chicken and Poultry
  • Pork
  • Fish and Seafood
  • Vegetarian
  • Snacks
  • Smoothies

Each cookbook has three different sections. You can choose recipes that will be protein rich, recipes that contain proteins and fats, or recipes that contain protein carbs and fats.

The cycling of the three is what helps to speed up your metabolism, a method known as Metabolic  Phenomenon Food Cycling. You can create a plan tailored exactly to meet your needs.

So, What Exactly Is Metabolic Cooking?

I had never even heard of metabolic cooking before I stumbled across this cookbook set, so I have to say I was a little dubious. However, when I did a little research and discovered the theory behind it I realised that it made perfect sense.

This isn’t a diet plan, there’s no deprivation or restrictions. It’s a straightforward guide to help you maximise your fat loss, without calorie counting or starvation (which are actually counterproductive to your metabolism anyway).

Metabolic cooking revolves around eating the right foods at the right time to help kick start and optimise your metabolic rate. This helps to burn fat quicker and easier. The beauty of it is its simplicity, metabolic cooking follows three main steps and I’ll cover them in this review.


Step 1: Metabolic ‘Nutri-Profile

Did you know that certain foods burn fat better when combined with other foods? Optimal food combination is at the heart of this plan, helping you to know exactly what to eat and when to eat it. Boost your metabolism and maximise your fat loss without having to spend hours dredging through a minefield of nutritional information.

Step 2: Metabolic Adaptation Phenomenon Food Cycling

Don’t worry, this isn’t as complicated as it sounds. In simple terms, it just means changing your food routine regularly to keep your metabolism on its toes. Doing this prevents that fat loss plateau that we all experience once we’ve gotten over the honeymoon phase of a diet.


Step 3: Fat Burning Ingredients

Choose foods from the “Metabolic Cooking Approved” list to double your fat burning potential. Boost your metabolism, just by eating. It’s a no-brainer!


Karine Losier and Dave Ruel Are A Match Made In Heaven

The creators of the Metabolic Cookbook Set are a married couple who decided to develop the plan after realising that conventional dieting often sets people up for failure.

Karine has a master’s degree in psychology so understands the struggles that people face with their diets and eating habits. Dave is a well known fitness cook who has helped many people with his recipes and nutritional approach. Between them, they decided to come up with a plan that would help people burn fat while still enjoying satisfying food.


Final Thoughts In This Metabolic Cookbook Review

First off, it’s so easy to follow! The concepts are all explained really well and once you understand the principles of metabolic cooking, they will stick with you forever.

The recipes are so easy to manage. I have never had any great skill in the kitchen but I still manage to create photo worthy meals with these cookbooks. The food itself is divine. My favourite recipe is the salsa marinated steak, which is absolutely bursting with flavour.

The huge variety of recipes and food reviews makes this plan suitable for every kind of lifestyle, from people who eat on the go to people who enjoy spending time in their kitchen. Stuck for

Stuck for time in the morning? There’s a whole cookbook dedicated to nutritious smoothies that take no time to make and are portable enough to bring with you on your commute. Every recipe has the calories, protein, carbs and fat listed so there’s no guesswork.

The bonus Metabolic Cooking quick sheets are a convenient set of index cards that make this plan even easier to follow. They include a grocery shopping master list, a printable daily food log, a quick recipe finder list, online personal shopping lists and a complete Metabolic Cookbook glossary.


What Could Be Improved On

When I purchased the plan, it came in the format of over 20 e-books and there were no clear instructions on how to use the plan. There was no obvious primary e-book and no guide for which book to read first. It was a little overwhelming and took a while to figure out where to begin.

The e-books are a little hard on the eyes. The text doesn’t sit right against the green background and is a little difficult to focus on.

It was surprising to find that although the recipes were clear and contained all the necessary nutritional information, there was little explanation of how the foods impact your metabolism. Luckily, I already had some knowledge of how the metabolism works. Before I purchased the plan I did some online research about how a plan like this might work.

Overall this is a great set of cookbooks for $47! I’ve used this while on the Bikini Body Guide and it was a great combination. I lost a lot of weight using both of them.
