I purchased the Metabolic Cooking package, and was impressed with the amount of information provided by the authors, Dave Ruel and Karine Losier. In addition, 9 bonus cooking videos are included, along with two other additional bonus guides. This package provides the complete 9 book set “Metabolic Cooking,” with over 250 recipes, each recipe intended to promote a thermogenic, or fat loss burning effect, in addition to the Fat Loss Optimizer Guide, a valuable introduction to the fat loss approach of the authors. It may be useful to state here the philosophy behind Metabolic Cooking:
“…You see, whether or not you are successful with the mission of losing body fat will come
down to about 80% of your dietary effort. You can workout for hours as hard as you like in
the gym (which isn’t recommended by the way – you should be training smarter, not harder)
but despite all this effort, if you haven’t dialled in your diet and found a proper nutrition
set-up that fosters fat burning in the body, you’re never going to see the results that you’re
looking for. If you want success, diet needs to be a priority.” (Fat Loss Optimizer Guide, p. 5)
The Metabolic Cooking product set includes:
- Cooking 9-Cookbook Set

A printable daily food log with an easy conversion chart is provided. Also included is a Fat Loss Optimizer Guide which presents the principles behind the program. This guide includes the ’10 rules of metabolic cooking,’ and money-saving/time-saving tips.
For my own needs (I am currently about 20 pounds overweight), I wanted to start with a 5 pound weight loss goal, and found many options in the 9-Cookbook set, which appealed to me. Since I am a semi-vegetarian, the Vegetarian Guide provided several easy recipes. The “Pepper Quiche” and “Egg Salad Sandwich” recipes were very enticing. In all, 14 Vegetarian recipes are provided. Not neglected, however, is the Red Meat Guide, which has 20 recipes in all.

A lot of thought has gone into the creation of these Metabolic Cooking guides. They are easy to follow, nicely presented and packed with useful content. The recipes are color-coded according to their Protein, Carbohydrate, Fat, and Veggie content. The Ingredients list and Directions are presented in a very clear, concise, and visually pleasing manner. Here is an example of a recipe for Apple Oatmeal Pancakes, taken from the Breakfast Guide.
The bonus video section is superb. Shown here is a scene from one of the cooking videos, how to create “Noodleless Shrimp Pad Thai.”
The Metabolic Cookbook presents the nutritional value of foods in the context of “Metabolic Thermo-Charge.” This term is defined as “The metabolic powers certain foods have to make your body burn more body fat.” It is a way of rating foods, based on “how many calories your body is going to burn just breaking down the nutrients each time you
consume a certain food.” This effect is sometimes called thermic effect of foods, or TEF. For instance, the body expends more energy to just metabolize proteins, so a high protein food would have a higher thermogenic effect. Clinical research has shown that TEF is, in fact, enhanced by aerobic endurance exercise having sufficient duration and intensity. So, there are valid scientific studies supporting this concept.
Below is an excellent scientific review of the basics of Lipoprotein Metabolism. The video is instructive in that one can see how the various food constituents end up as either muscle, fat, or metabolites.
One reason Metabolic Cooking is liked by customers, is because it offers an alternative to the boring, mundane way of cooking usually utilized for weight loss. With 9 Cookbooks in all, and over 250 recipes, much variety has been built in to this program. This is one of the main selling points of Metabolic Cooking, the variety of recipes found in the 9 Cookbooks.
Also, with many thousands of purchases of Metabolic Cookbook, you are not going to undergo this type of diet as a research subject. You are not alone in your weight loss endeavor!
