Summer weight loss snack

Are you a sneaky snacker?

Then you’ve met your match in Radical Metabolism! Snacks don’t have to sabotage weight loss. In fact, the right snacks can get you on the right track to shedding those unwanted pounds. Say bye-bye to belly fat when you include a healthy, balanced snack with the right fats and plenty of protein in your weight loss plan.

Your Diet Should Fit Your Lifestyle

There’s nothing like going on a diet to make you feel like you’re hungry all the time, right? It’s just human nature to want what we think we can’t have on a diet – calories and more food! I kept this in mind as part of the design of my new Radical Metabolism plan, and built snacks into the plan that fuel your metabolism and keep you burning fat and feeling satisfied all day long. With 3 meals and 3 “between meals,” you’ll be too busy eating and snacking your way to weight loss to feel hungry.

Did you know that during the mid-afternoon slump in energy that so many of us fall prey to, your metabolism also takes a hit? It’s true! And I’ve created a variety of what I call Metabolixirs you’ll drink every mid to late afternoon (and more often as desired) to wake you and your metabolism back up and super-charge your digestion. Spoiler alert: there’s coffee and chocolate involved – what’s better than iced coffee in the early afternoon to cool you down, fuel your metabolism, and keep you focused?

I’ll let you in on a little secret – I love to curl up on my couch after dinner and watch a movie – and who can watch a movie without snacking? Not me! Radical Metabolism has an after-dinner treat built-in just for people like us. You can enjoy a handful of pistachios or even indulge in a little dark chocolate while you catch up on your favorite series and wind down for the evening – while you lose weight.

Summertime is the Right Time for Snackin’

There’s no better time to get into a healthy routine than summer. The heat is a natural appetite suppressant, and we’re drawn to fresh fare and lighter cuisine. The variety of fresh veggies and fruits that are available are a feast for the eyes with all their bright colors – and a boost to your metabolism. It just seems natural this time of year to snack your way through the day, rather than sit down to a heavy meal.

Here are my “Favorite Five” Snack suggestions from my new Radical Metabolism plan, along with a sneak peek at one of my tasty new recipes:

  1. Greek yogurt with hemp hearts and fresh berries, jicama sticks on the side
  2. Celery sticks with cashew butter and ground toasted flax seeds
  3. Fresh pear or apple slices rolled in toasted flax seeds
  4. Roasted seaweeds snacks with plums
  5. Veggie sticks with Sunflower “Cheese” Dip
Sunflower “Cheese” Dip
Serves: 1.5 cups
With the consistency of a dairy cheese dip, this easy blend is so much tastier than anything you can buy! Delicious on fresh cut veggies, or thinned a bit for drizzling over a fresh green salad.
  • 2 cups raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons pine nut oil
  • ¾ cup fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¾ cup filtered water, more as needed
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until combined. Adjust the amount of water for the consistency you like.
  2. Refrigerate unused portions.


It’s Your Turn for Radical Results

If you’ve done a Whole30 to get your healthy eating on track, then it’s time for a Radical 25 to reset your metabolism and get your weight loss on track! Radical Metabolism is so much more than healthy snacking, it’s a 25 day reboot for your metabolism, to shed toxins and unwanted pounds and make a fresh start to a lighter, healthier you!

Just listen to what a few of my Radical group of ladies had to say after only the 4-Day Radical Intensive Cleanse:

Debi C. said: “I can’t believe I lost 7.6 pounds. I plan to do this at least once a month. I’ve tried so many plans for over a decade without good results. My energy is higher than its been in a long time and for the first time in many years I feel my age going younger instead of way beyond my years. Can’t wait to try some of the RM recipes they look amazing!”

Crystal R. had this to say: “I went to pull on my blue jeans…non of them fit…I can literally lap them I’ve my stomach & waist by about 4 or 5 inches! I’m dumbfounded! Gonna have to go shopping!”

Gina M shared: “Well I am excited to say on the morning of day 5 I am down 5.7lbs and 4.75″ (includes arms, thighs, chest, waist and hips). I am very excited about these results to say the least.”

Wendy A. was thrilled with her results: “Since the age of 5, I’ve been on every diet imaginable. Atkins, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig. Grapefruit, soup, This n that. 53 years later Im still seeking. I’m a Fat Flusher because it is the only thing that works for me that is just pure science n good food. Im a slow, slow loser…but I do lose. Until Radical Metabolism. Just finished the 4 day cleanse and I’m down 8.6 pounds! Incredible! What took me 8 weeks in Fat Flushing, fell off in 4 days of Radical Metabolism! I’m thrilled! The only drawback is I had to hop a plane to LA and the pants and panties that were snug 29 days ago are falling off! Gonna need a belt for the return trip!!”

    These snacks sound delicious and satisfying. You’re right, I’m not as hungry in the Summer. I tend to eat too much fresh fruit and gain weight. I will check out your new book. Thanks.

  6. Catherine

    Should we take the hemp seeds in the morning and then oil in the evening? How many seeds should we take at a time? Does it go by weight?

    • Team ALG

      Catherine, You can have the seeds and the oil at any time throughout the day. One tablespoon of hemp seeds per serving.

    8/22/18 I just pre-ordered your book today Radical Metabolism through Amazon and when I try to go into your website for the free gifts, it will not acknowledge it and only gives me a blank page(no matter how long I wait thinking the website is just busy). What can I do to qualify? After many years of hypothyroidism and weight gain, I am looking very forward to reading you new book.

    • Team ALG

      Jackie, please call us at UNIKEY 800 888-4353 so we can help you obtain your FREE gifts. It sounds like a computer glitch.
