I received this book free as a giveaway through Goodreads. I always knew I had underlying issues with my body that was causing me to hold on to the fat and this book helped me in targeting what the issues were and how to work on them. It not only targeted the issue with my body but tells me step-by-step what to do to help heal my body and jump start my weight loss. The book is laid out in such a way that it is very easy to follow. It provides a checklist, Q&A on your issues that you might be fac ...more

I can't wait to try this. I have done 10 day juicing, detoxing my body and felt great after them along with having my skin glow. I am currently on her Fast Metabolism diet and have lost 20 lbs. My sister has lost 60. What Haylie says makes total sense and I think if it doesn't work for someone they might not be ready to lose the weight. They might be hanging onto it for a reason that they might not even be aware of. I've been there. You have to be ready to be committed to a life change to do any ...more

This book explains and gives details and recipes for three temporary regimens to kick-start weight loss if you've reached a plateau. They address three different issues that can sabotage our efforts. They are inflammation, digestive, and hormonal. They seem to be based on sound nutritional science as is her Fast Metabolic Diet which I have tried with some success.
The trouble with the FMD is that it isn't sustainable because it eliminates all wheat, dairy, corn, soy, artificial additives, and pr

I received a copy of this book complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.

This book written by Haylie Pomroy, has 3 eating plans that can assist you if you suffer from inflammation, digestive, and/or hormonal complications. She addresses how all three of those issues can halt your weight loss and what you can do about it. I know I could benefit from following any or all of these eating plans, especially the digestive plan.

This was a goodreads giveaway. I was concerned when I read it that it was not a realistic plan and I was right. All of the plans have morning and afternoon snacks required. Unfortunately I don't have a job that allows me to always get a morning or afternoon break. I decided to try the 3 day plan on my long weekend off. I quickly discovered this plan is not for everyone after buying the ingredients. I spent HALF my monthly grocery budget to buy food for 3 days! The "tea" was completely undrinkabl ...more

profound changes

My "diet" resistant husband can't believe the profound changes he is experiencing. He has been extremely over weight for years, and no amount of exercising or healthy lifestyle changes, had any real or long lasting benefits. He calls Haylie his girl! He is enjoying food like never before. I believe for the first time in his life, he feels joyful about this journey and this way of life. He will be forever grateful to Haylie for helping him to not only lose 60 pounds, but for the

A great guide to stepping up your metabolism to help you burn the fat. I have been battling with my weight even though I walk 2-3 miles per day and eat fairly fresh and clean food. After reading the book I went o my doctor and compounding pharmacy and am getting a hormone evaluation and replacement hormones. Can hardly wait. Thanks Haylie for the idea. I also did her drop 3 in 3 and DID! Great recipes and lots of motivation in this book.

Listened to this on audiobook but ended up buying this one and Fast Metabolism in print so that I can do the diets. She's a little less infomercial-y in this book which I appreciated. I am curious to try the D-burn and see the results. These diets are not meant to be long term, rather, to jump start you again when you reach your plateau. In my case, I just need a refuel of motivation with my eating.

Each Burn diet (I-Burn, D-Burn, H-Burn) vary in number of days and are based on different symptom

I am a big fan of Haylie Pomroy and find her ways of eating to be incredibly nutritious. The Burn is straight forward, providing 3 different nutrition plans to address 3 different sets of symptoms (inflammation, hormones, digestion). Having to eat soft foods for a bit, I decided to give the I-Burn a go. It’s fruit and vegetable heavy, along with good portions of fat and some protein. The tea is somewhere between delicious and vile, and the morning smoothie needs some tweaks (I use half the lime ...more

I love Fast Metabolism Diet, it did great things for me, I lost 13kg, started exercising (more energy), but I couldn't move below those 13kg, hoped burns would get me unstuck. Unfortunately the D-burn soup turned out inedible, I don't feel like wasting more money on other burn recipes, especially that default recipe sets are crazy expensive. Disappointment overall. ...more

Always clear and direct with fantastical advice that feels birderline miraculous but did work for me!
I did the three day plan and while it was clearly written I still struggled to eat and drink that much.
If you need help, she’s real and this isn’t a hoax.

great info. explains the science behind
I discovered this book while looking for other books on the same subject matter and said why not give it a look. I see on the cover and back cover that it has three options: 3 days, 5 days, or 10 days to try for weight loss and based on various issues you are trying to overcome. I definitely interested in the 5/10 day rule since it addresses issues I am currently facing and symptoms I'd love to find a way to remove, cure, or eliminate!

For the last few years, I also have had problems losing weig

I had an awful experience with this diet plan. I tried it because a friend I trusted said it had worked for her, so that must prove for some people this is just what the doctor ordered. But for me, the book should really have had a warning to see a doctor about it before starting it. The plan made me physically ill, and I had to stop after day 3, because I was really afraid I would do some serious damage to myself. This is not a diet for someone who might be a health outlier--the foods are being ...more

Shelves: health, self-help
A great little book that deals with issues of inflammation, digestion and hormonal imbalance and how to correct them. Most of what I've read on these issues is very complicated (for someone like me) to try and implement. In this book, Ms. Pomroy tries to make it easy and has great tips for how to implement her recommendations.

I saw the author on a recent edition of the Dr. Oz show and the results her clients achieved were inspiring.

I borrowed this book from the library but if I want to use it a

Love this book in theory, it is so positive and I picked up some great recipes. The problem is I seem to have an intolerance for the tea, which is key in the diet. I followed the rest of the instructions for 10 days and felt better, but hadn't lost any additional weight. ...more

I've read this book but haven't tried her program. I'm going to try one of the plans when I have a period of time that I would be able to fully commit. Regardless, her writing is good, and the plan intriguing; I may update my rating once I try it out the diet. ...more

I haven't tried the diets yet, but I liked the ideas in the book, especially the idea that transformation doesn't have to take forever - one bad weekend can have you looking terrible, so why can't one good weekend get you looking good? I plan on trying the I-Burn 3 day diet first. ...more

I did the H-Burn and couldn't make through the 10 day diet. I was starving and frantic for food. However, I did like the H-Burn tea (which I still make as a staple in my fridge). I'll stick to the Fast Metabolism Diet, but I'll give The Burn another try. ...more
