Everything There Is To Know About Metabolic Factor 10 Minute Meals
Metabolic Factor 10 Minute Meals is a downloadable recipe book accessible to dieters who participate in the Metabolic Factor dieting and exercise program.
Have you ever tried a diet that makes you eat food you've never heard of? And what about those diets that want you to spend an hour cooking breakfast? Wouldn't it be great if there was a recipe book for dieters with quick recipes and ingredients you can pronounce? Today, I'm gonna tell you about such a thing, Metabolic Factor 10 Minute Meals. This will be a basic primer. For more info, check out my full review of Metabolic Factor.
What It Is
It's part of the Metabolic Factor diet and exercise program. You may be thinking that it's a long-winded book that's full of exotic recipes and repetitive information about dieting. It isn't. It's relatively short report that you download onto any or all of your devices.
This simplicity is refreshing. The last thing you need when you're starting a diet is to have to study a big book just to plan some of your meals.
Do The Recipes Help You Lose Weight?
These recipes, part of the Metabolic Factor meal plan, are healthy and relatively low in fat and carbs. So, yes, you would probably lose some weight if you prepared and ate these recipes as your three daily meals for the 22 days covered in the meal plan.
How much could you lose? Well, you can't lose much in just 22 days. You could, of course, repeat recipes as often as you wish.
But perhaps we're missing the point here. These recipes are part of the Metabolic Factor meal plan, and the meal plan is part of the Metabolic Factor diet and exercise program. You'd be much better off working the program as a whole if you want to lose weight and get into overall better shape.
How It Works
It's important to understand that these recipes are part of a metabolic diet. So you have your day 1 to 7 recipes, and other recipes for days 8 to 15 and 16 to 22. The point is that eating certain healthy meals at the right times, along with doing the easy exercises, will get your metabolism going and keep it in higher gear. That way, you are burning fat even when sitting and watching TV.
So what you do is pick and choose which of the recipes you want to make, choosing from the list of recipes allowed for whichever of the three phases you're in at that time.
What's The Food Like?
There's something for everyone. Meat lovers and vegans alike will find many recipes that pique their interest. Of course, everyone in between will be happy as well.
One of the big things I like about these recipes is that they're family-friendly. What do I mean by that? You shouldn't have to cook separate meals for yourself and the rest of your family just because you're on a diet. If you take a look at some of these meals, you'll see that it's regular food. There'll be meals that everyone will like.
The meals are nutritionally complete, with one minor exception. You won't find many fruits. That's because many fruits have a high glycemic index, which is usually a no-no when you're trying to lose weight. You can always work in some fruit for the rest of the family, but you'll want to avoid it yourself.
Be warned that if you absolutely don't like protein shakes, your options for breakfast will be limited. There are some non-shake morning meals, but not many. But the thing about shakes is they're quick. It takes just a few minutes to make one and clean up your counter afterward.
Did I mention that there are dessert recipes included? How about some caramel swirl cheesecake or flourless fudge brownies? There's also a veggie side section with some seriously savory recipes. The lemony asparagus is my favorite.
At this point, you may be wondering if these recipes really take just 10 minutes to prepare. The truth is that some may take you just a bit longer than 10 minutes, but not much.
What If You Don't Like The Food?
It doesn't matter how varied a collection of recipes is. Not everyone is going to like everything in it. As the saying goes, you can't please all of the people all of the time. And if you or your family happen to be picky, it can be a real headache to find something good to cook.
Here is another reason I really like this recipe collection. You have the option of “rolling your own,” as they put it.
Let's say you can only prepare half of the recipes on the list because of picky eaters or serious food allergies. That's no problem. Just check out the roll your own sections. You simply choose a food item from each column of food groups and put them together for a tasty and familiar meal. You can be as creative as you wish, as long as you don't stray from the allowable ingredients and watch your portions.
I've seen other diet recipe collections that offer an option like this, but very few allow you to have so much variety.
What Are The Shopping Lists?
There's a great big shopping list for each of the three phases of the diet. If you follow each list and buy everything on it, you will have all the food you need to make every suggested meal for that phase. That's a simple concept. But the confusion comes into play if you don't want to make every meal in that week's recipe list. And you probably won't like every meal.
So what good are the Metabolic Factor shopping lists? Here's what you do. Print out each week's shopping list or copy and paste it into your phone's notepad. Then plan your three daily meals for each phase. Check your fridge and pantry, and cross out any items that you already have enough of. If you're rolling some of your own meals, add the items you need from the “roll your own” ingredient lists. And there you have it. I've seen people struggle with diet recipe shopping lists, but now you won't have to.
These lists simplify your shopping trips and lower your chances of having to run back out to the store to get things that you overlooked.
These Metabolic Factor 10-minute meals are appetizing, healthy and quick, and easy to prepare. There is so much variety here that you can cook these meals for your whole family.
But you have to purchase the Metabolic Factor diet and exercise program to get access to the pdf.
