Metabolic Efficiency Recipe Book (electronic book)

The second edition of the popular Metabolic Efficiency Recipe book is here and will not disappoint! It is full of new recipes from five Registered Dietitians who are also Metabolic Efficiency Training Specialists. You will find 15 recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks for a grand total of 60 total, mouthwatering dishes! There are 19 completely vegetarian recipes also and many can be easily adapted to vegan by a few ingredient substitutions.

This recipe book is organized into recipes that will support and optimize your blood sugar to enhance health and improve athletic performance. New to this edition is the recipe classification of Carbohydrate to Protein ratio. Just like we did in our Smoothie Recipe Book, each recipe is classified as a <1:1, 1:1, 1.5:1, or 2:1 ratio of Carbohydrate to Protein so you can choose how effectively you want to control your blood sugar and periodize your macronutrient intake.

A great update to the first edition, this second edition also lists the exact quantities of ingredients and nutrition facts (serving size, calories, carbohydrate, fiber, protein, and fat) for each recipe.

The concept of Metabolic Efficiency Training (MET) can be applied to individuals just beginning exercise, fitness enthusiasts and the seasoned athlete. MET describes the relationship between the body’s ability to use fat and carbohydrate as energy sources across a variety of exercise intensities. Being more of a “fat burner” will allow you to improve your health, reduce risk for chronic disease, lose weight and body fat, improve athletic performance and eliminate gastrointestinal (GI) distress.

The second edition of Metabolic Efficiency Training: Teaching the Body to Burn More Fat has been enhanced to provide more nutrition and exercise prescription strategies for individuals of all ages, abilities and fitness/sport interests.

This book will provide very specific nutrition and exercise recommendations that will guide you through each training cycle with the end goal of improving your ability to use fat as fuel. Gone are the days of needing to consume a high amount of calories during training and competition. By improving your body’s Metabolic Efficiency, it is possible to significantly reduce the amount of calories you need during exercise. The end result will be improved health and performance with significantly reduced chances of GI distress. 169 pages. 2014.
