What are people saying about The Metabolism Boosting Diet?

I am a “lifer” in the weight loss world and have literally tried it all. When I read The Metabolism Boosting Diet – I literally breathed a sigh of relief. Finally – a book to help me lose the weight (even at my age- I am already down 3 inches in my waist!) and help me deal with my emotional eating. Thank you Dr. Joey.

As a devoted chocolate lover, I am pleased to inform you that cocoa is good for you! Long before modern medicine discovered that a daily dose of 30 grams of dark chocolate lowers blood pressure, ancient Mayan civilizations were using cocoa concoctions for everything from nervous disorders and mental exhaustion to anemia and kidneys stones. In a nutshell, the benefits of cocoa are:

  • High in antioxidants. Pure, unprocessed cocoa has an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) that is higher than the anti-oxidants in red wine and berries.
  • It's a source of plant sterols – a powerful cholesterol reducer
  • Triggers the release of three “happy” neurotransmitters - serotonin, dopamine and phenylethylamine (PEA) – that reduces stress and anxiety.
  • Rich in magnesium – which supports heart health and helps to relax hypertensive blood vessels and constricted muscles.

When you do treat yourself to chocolate – make sure you opt for 70% cocoa to get the most out of your healthy indulgence!


Healthy Hot Cocoa

  • 4 cups almond milk or other non-dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder (available at most health food stores)
  • 2 tablespoons agave or honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch cayenne

Put all ingredients into a blender. Blend until creamy then warm desired amount on stovetop in a saucepan on medium heat, whisking constantly.
