The Fast Metabolism Diet– customized meal planning App Reviews

108 add

I cant believe how easy this is.

Ive tried a billion diets. I cant lose weight. On a whim I decided to try this app and this diet. Ive been on it a week now. Ive lost 6 lbs. I go to bed every night feeling full and wake up every day having lost weight. The app makes this diet so easy. It tells me when and what to eat. It reminds me to drink water. The food selection is tremendous. Ill update this review as I go along but... Im hopeful that this might actually be the cure for my years and years of weight loss struggles.

Updates please

I love this app and use it everyday but do get frustrated that it has not been updated to reflect the latest changes and corrections. I think more people would buy if it was accurate.

DO NOT BUY - Incomplete lists

App is useless. The food lists are incomplete. Cant search the food list. Just terrible app.


Where are the recipes? I bought the hard cover cookbook and many of the recipes are not an option in the meal choices for each phase. And some of the recipes in the choices section are not in the book. How do I make a proper selection when the book and app dont jive? Kind of disappointed. If this issue is fixed, I may change my rating.

I lost 13 pounds easily with App

This app is for the person who needs to know what to eat and when to eat it. I did t use the recipes or the shakes. I didnt exercise other than 2 hours of yoga a week which I had done for 7 years. I ate out most of the time and simply used the app to show me which foods to eat. As long as you pack your AM and PM snacks and eat the 3 meals a day plus drink 60-70 oz water daily, its easy. Panera bread has the sprouted grain rolls and you can find frozen sprouted grain bread at Whole Foods. They are the only breads I used. Stay away from starch, fried foods, pasta and cheese and its easy cause the app guides you on what to eat. I ate more food on this diet in a day the. I ever ate. Its truly about the metabolism. It took me 6 weeks to lose 10 pounds, then the 3 came off and I now just do my own thing with including snacks and watch what I eat and in 8 weeks I have maintained the loss. Its like my Metabolism is fixed now.


This App is awesome and super easy to use with its aily intake log that lists foods to choose from and sends you remingers to drink water. Honestly I don’t understand some the negative Nellie reviews. This is such an easy way to lose weight and inches. Ive only been on it 9 days and have lost 1.5". You get to have plenty of yummy food and it does not feel like Im on a diet at all. Having tried several other popular apps but this one is a dream to use and I love Haylies sensible approach to fixing your metabolism. Im recovering from gaining 15 lbs from a broken foot and its easy to follow this plan.

App needs to be updated

The FMD is very good. Definitely read the book so that you can fully understand the lifestyle and the reason why you eat certain foods on certain days. I use the app but it is not updated to reflect the most updated food list, recipes from the cookbook nor is the portion sizes accurate. I have contacted tech support in regards to the updates and I was informed that the nutritionist/author Hayley Pomroy does not own the app. Lets hope it can be updated sooner than later.

Good but needs interfaces

Good, but a pain to keep my fitness data in one place. I have to add the food to other apps like Lose It or My Fitness Pal manually and its hard to match...

Lots of room for improvement

The app is helpful, especially at first, but it soon becomes apparent that it is very limited. First of all, there is only an iPhone version, not one specifically made for iPad. I can live with that by downloading the iPhone app onto my iPad. HOWEVER, I quickly found out that these do not sync. Whatever Ive done on my iPad, like scheduling my weeks worth of meals, does not appear on my iPhone! I like to have the information on both, when Im out, shopping or in a restaurant, I use my phone, if Im home wanting to cook, I prefer my iPad. This is really a major flaw! Another missing feature is the ability to link to other FMD products. For example, selecting a meal from the book should allow me to link to the recipe in the book Ive already purchased in Kindle., it should also allow me to create a shopping list of ingredients I need, either for the week or by phase or by any metric I choose. I expect a lot more from apps I have to pay for, this one is very disappointing should at the very least, be free.....

Please update!

Please update this app! There are so many meals that could be added. I agree with other reviewers that the app is awkward and is need of many improvements (has it ever been updated or has it been forgotten). It is a great place to plan and keep track of meals, water and wt.

Too many differences

In the app it says you can have healthy fats for phase 3 bfast but in the book it says fat/protein. And there are a ton more differences in comparison to app/book/cookbook! Love the diet but I was hoping not to "think" too much on this diet:(.

Just ok

Needs upgrades that will align program with user data input Definitely could use an actual search function instead of having to scroll from a-z in each good category. Helpful for the basic program information but theres so much more potential that other tracking apps have.

Food filter is nonexistent

The app is convenient for tracking your daily consumption and shopping needs. However the food list doesnt filter between phases. The Phase tabs are present but the options dont change when one taps on a tab. Therefore time consuming to go up and down the list of foods to check the colored squares indicating appropriate phase.

Love the app

This makes be diet so much easier

With the book this is a good plan

I got the app first and felt a little lost, so I went to my library and checked out the book. That is the key to making this program work. You will eat a lot of food and you will be thinking about meals most of the waking time. But maybe thats what starts building healthy habits. I have been on the program almost 2weeks and my clothes feel better, and I feel really strong! Im crushing my yoga program! I like to run 5ks and after my last run I felt I needed to drop weight to be faster. I have not yet gone back to running as I am working on building muscle and strength. But Im interested to see how much better Ill do. You will have to work a little at the program but now Im getting to the part where I just remind myself of what Phase Im in and start mapping out my meals/snacks for the day. You may find that you dont want to start phase 1 on Monday. Mine is actually on Thursday. I do not feel deprived and Ive kicked my sugar addiction. Try it. Work with it. But definitely get the book. Lots of good info.

Could use some updating.

I like the app for logging food. You can only set your weight in whole numbers and you can not track your weight loss as you lose. No area for your measurements. No area for your notes.

Love the app and the book (audio in my case)

It gives great variation of foods to choose from for all meals throughout my day.

Not too impressed

So far not too impressed with the app. It needs the recipes from the cookbook so I dont have to put each individual ingredient for the garden meatballs. Also the jambalaya has 3 proteins yet you can only select one on P1. I put in to start on January 2, 2017, which is in 4 days and the app has today as December 29, 2017. This app needs some updating if you want people to use it regularly. Especially since we had to pay for the app.

Love it - needs updates

Very convenient to stay on phase. Would love to see the newer recipes added (loaded egg white muffins ...). Can you also add the FMD products/noodles etc?

Needs Updating!

Semi-helpful but would be great to see recipes or at least add ingredients to the shopping cart.
