The 3-phase program claims to help you lose weight and feel your best by boosting weight-loss hormones with the 3 R's of hormone power: Remove, Restore and Rebalance. Here's how each phase breaks down: The first step in Michael's Master Your Metabolism program is to eliminate what she calls "antinutrients" from your diet. According to Michaels, antinutrients are foods that contain hydrogenated fats, high-fructose corn syrup, and artificial sweeteners, preservatives and colors. According to Michaels, these foods slow down your metabolism. The second phase works to restore "fat-burning hormone foods" to your diet. Michaels categorizes these foods into 10 "power nutrient" groups including: legumes or peas and beans, alliums like onions and leeks, berries, meat and eggs, colorful fruits and vegetables, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cabbage, dark green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds, organic low-fat dairy, and whole grains. The plan stresses all meats, dairy and eggs and most fruits and vegetables are ORGANIC. The 3rd and final phase of the Master Your Metabolism plan -- the rebalancing phase -- focuses on the timing, quantity and combinations of foods for maximum metabolic benefit. In simpler terms that means following these 6 rules: eat breakfast every morning, eat something every 4 hours, eat until you're full, don't eat after 9 p.m., avoid carbohydrates at night, and combine protein, fat and carbohydrates in every meal and snack.
