The word metabolism is synonymous with weight loss and fat burning. It’s no coincidence then that it’s the ‘buzz word’ of Karine Losier & Dave Ruel’s new program, Metabolic Cooking. It markets itself as a fat burning recipe cookbook. However, with no shortage of similar programs already out there, I was interested to see what it had to offer.
One thing you should immediately be aware of if you’re on the cusp of purchasing is the fact that Metabolic Cooking is a fully digital program. You won’t receive any hardback cookbooks. Instead, everything is made accessible online. This is a neat way to cut down on shipping costs and reduce the overall price to the consumer. In fact, visit any book shop and you can expect to pay at least $40 for a recipe book with less information than what’s contained in Metabolic Cooking, so the already low price-point was refreshing to see.
As for the actual content, it’s very good. Leanrunnerbean’s metabolic cooking review has also heaped praise on the program and while the green and yellow colour scheme used throughout wasn’t exactly to my tastes, it didn’t detract from the actual recipes and the breadth of what was on offer. The selection is comprehensive with just about every conceivable meal time well covered. As you would expect, each recipe comes with a simple list of cooking instructions and a photo. One excellent addition worth mentioning however is the PCF system. It stands for Protein, Carbohydrates and Fat and is a mainstay on each recipe, showing you the percentages of each macronutrient used.
If you’re experienced with dieting and weight loss, you’ll know the importance of these and how they can help (or hinder) your results. Having them clearly visible is a great idea and makes eating right that much easier. The sheer number of recipes makes it so that you won’t become bored or restless anytime soon and that’s no bad thing when it comes to weight loss. I’ve given a brief overview of the main cook book you receive, but the real strength of Metabolic Cooking is seen it’s add-ons.
These extra books are there to support your eating plan by providing answers to common questions and guides to help accelerate your results. Collectively, these work to increase your knowledge-base of healthy eating and weight loss and really help take Metabolic Cooking from just a recipe book and into a fully-fledged healthy eating program. This makes it particularly well suited to those who need (or would like) additional support beyond just referencing a recipe book.
Overall, I’m impressed with Metabolic Cooking. If you’re looking to lose weight, this is certainly one program I would recommend adding to your arsenal. The content is top-notch and the price makes it accessible to just about anyone, a win-win in my book.
