THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION by Mark Hyman

THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION

The Ultrahealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease, and Feeling Great Now!

KIRKUS REVIEW

Bestselling author of the Ultra- health-book series (The UltraMind Solution, 2008, etc.) expounds on the limitless benefits of a balanced, organic, fiber-friendly diet.

Directly addressing what he calls “our current global epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes,” the former co-medical director of Canyon Ranch spas appeals to an increasing population plagued with bodily inflammation, insulin resistance and “diabesity.” Hyman’s book is mindful, comprehensive and impeccably organized as it moves from discussing the genesis of diabetes and the common myths surrounding the disease to how big “Frankenfood” corporations fuel “obesogenic”-based food addictions. Readers willing to take the author’s “diabesity” and “food addiction” quizzes may or may not be alarmed at the results. Regardless, the self-proclaimed “wholistic” doctor promotes his heavily regimented “7 Keys to UltraWellness” plan, which systematically addresses problems and solutions regarding nutrition, digestion, detoxification and metabolism. Hyman’s commentary on the cane sugar versus corn syrup debate is refreshingly astute, as are chapters on the restorative power of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. The author’s effective closing manifesto rallies readers to take charge of their health by making smarter lifestyle choices, which translates to more than 500 pages of useful charts, scientifically supported nutritional recommendations, airtight advice, recipes, menus and a comprehensive companion website.

An avalanche of vital information and advice from an enthusiastic wellness expert.
