  1. Hi

    Cooking when trying to lose body fat can Be tricky, we all know that. But today I got good news for you!

    My friends Karine Losier and Dave Ruel spent the past year or so crafting the perfect "metabolic" recipe book.

    I highly recommend this for your kitchen if you want to get leaner, do it faster, and have it taste BETTER than ever:

    My TOP Fatloss Recipe Book <--- see how tasty

    Quickly:

    What is "metabolic cooking"?

    Simply stated, it's a unique way of preparing food that combines nutrients specifically geared for melting off body fat FASTER than normal.

    Here's what I really love about Metabolic Cooking:

    1. The recipes are made from foods with a high Metabolic Thermo-Charge; more calories burned faster without losing taste...

    2. They structured the cookbooks around their incredibly helpful "Metabolic Nutri-Profile"... makes it SUPER easy to use...

    3. It's been specifically designed to fight the Metabolic Adaptation Phenomenon: That is what happens when you are on a dietplan and you all of a sudden stop dropping bodyfat!

    Taste, ease, and metabolism-boosting power.
