Haylie was led to develop The Fast Metabolism Diet after helping clients—both famous and not— improve their health and manage health challenges.

The book is a culmination of her principles and strategies that have worked for hundreds of her clients, her family, and for her.

As an extension of her “food as medicine” philosophy, Haylie has developed a line of supplements, protein powders and bars designed to work with The Fast Metabolism Diet, available at
