Review: Boost Your Metabolism Cookbook

Updated on October 24, 2010

Are you looking for a collection of recipes that can help you accomplish your weight loss goals? If so, you really need to check out the Boost Your Metabolism Cookbook written by Chef Susan Irby (aka the Bikini Chef) with Registered Dietician Rachel Laferriere.

About the Boost Your Metabolism Cookbook

Officially titled Boost Your Metabolism Cookbook: Fire Up Your Diet for a Fit and Firm You , this book is written with the dietary needs of women in mind. After all, once women pass the age of 30, their metabolisms begin to slow down bit by bit as the decades go by.

As a woman, if you want to avoid developing middle age spread – or be able to lose extra pounds you are already carrying – it only makes sense to take the time to learn how to prepare recipes that can help you boost your metabolism. Men, of course, can also benefit from the recipes and information provided in this book.

Rather than focusing on odd – and ineffective – suggestions for improving metabolism (such as shooting hot sauce after drinking milk or adding maple syrup and cayenne pepper to lemonade before drinking it), this book is based on sound research about nutrition and metabolism. The recipes presented in the Boost Your Metabolism Cookbook focus on helping readers learn how to prepare recipes that can truly have a positive impact on metabolism and fat burning.

The book opens with a section titled “Sure Fire Metabolism Boosters” where readers will have an opportunity to learn more about what metabolism really is, how it works, its impact on weight loss and gain, and what kinds of things really have an impact on it. The book goes on to provide recipes for all kinds of dishes that are based on the principles of how to eat if your goal is to rev up your metabolism to provide maximum fat burning benefits.

Boost Your Metabolism Cookbook Recipe Examples

When you prepare the recipes presented in this book, the first thing you’ll notice is that they don’t actually taste like diet recipes. Instead, they taste terrific! Using the recipes – combined with what you learn about how to make the most of your metabolism – can help you make forward progress toward accomplishing your weight management goals.

A few of the great dishes you can learn how to prepare from the Boost Your Metabolism Cookbook include:

  • Carrot Cake with Ginger
  • Chinese Chicken Salad
  • Fettuccine with Shrimp and Artichokes
  • Grilled Chicken Skewers
  • Pasta with Spinach and Pine Nuts
