The Fast Metabolism Diet is about food, but it isn’t only about food. The following are the exercises to do in each phase.
PHASE 1: Do at least one day of vigorous cardio, like running, the elliptical trainer, or an upbeat aerobic-based exercise class. Cardio is perfectly suited for high-carb Phase 1.
PHASE 2: Do at least one day of strength-training with weights. Focus on lifting heavy weights with low reps. Lifting weights during Phase 2 will seriously increase your metabolic power, so go for it!
PHASE 3: Do at least one day of stress-reducing activity like yoga or deep breathing, or enjoy a massage. Yes, massage counts! It’s not an “activity ” per se, but it increases blood flow to the fatty areas of your body, reduces cortisol, and does the work we want for you during this phase.
