NBC News health and wellness contributor David Zinczenko, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Zero Sugar Diet, Zero Belly Diet, the Abs Diet series, and the Eat This, Not That! series, discloses why some of us stay thin and some of us lose weight with ease—and reveals the secret to how you can stay lean for life. The answer lies within your metabolism, the body’s crucial, energy-burning engine that for so many of us is revving at less than half speed. With the help of this book, you can quickly and easily turn your metabolism into a fat-melting machine.
The Super Metabolism Diet features daily menus, handy shopping guides, a vast trove of amazing (though optional) workouts, and tons of delicious recipes—all designed to get your metabolism firing hotter than ever before! So say goodbye to bloat, harsh dieting, weight-loss fads, and even stress. Say bye-bye to belly fat and hello to a new and improved you.
The Super Metabolism Diet is built on five core pillars (captured in a handy acronym) to ensure that your body burns more energy and stores less fat:
Super Proteins, Super Carbs, and Super Fats
Upping Your Energy Expenditure
Essential Calories, Vitamins, and Minerals
Relaxing and Recharging
As Zinczenko reports: If you’re heavier than you want to be or moving sluggishly through your days, you don’t need to cut your favorite foods from your diet. You just need to up your intake of core proteins that will build more energy-burning muscle, consume the healthiest fats that help increase satiety and speed nutrients throughout your body, and reach for plenty of good-for-you carbs—yes, carbs!—that provide essential fiber.
The result will be a stronger, leaner, happier you. And you’ll be stunned at how good you look and feel in no time at all.
“You’ll see results almost immediately, never be hungry, and watch the weight keep coming off!”—Michele Promaulayko, editor in chief of Cosmopolitan and former editor in chief of Women’s Health

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
After years of trying every Zero Belly book, I had take this book back. the only reason why I gave this book a five star review is because it has some interesting ideas that might work for somebody else. I just don't want to rely on a super food group to lose weight. I want to do it with foods that I already eat. Many of the recipes just seem to contradict the diet. Why would it tell me not to eat sugar, but then suggest mixing cinnamon and sugar to boost a person's metabolism? If any of these books worked, why do we have to keep buying these kind of books over and over ago. The only book that ever gave me hope was written by Chef Jai Scovers called Hungry Chick. The thing in that book about drinking more water was both eye opening and a game changer.
