This is how amazon.com describes the book: In THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION, Dr. Mark Hyman reveals that the secret solution to losing weight and preventing not just diabetes but also heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer is balanced insulin levels. Dr. Hyman describes the seven keys to achieving wellness-nutrition, hormones, inflammation, digestion, detoxification, energy metabolism, and a calm mind-and explains his revolutionary six-week healthy-living program. With advice on diet, green living, supplements and medication, exercise, and personalizing the plan for optimal results, the book also teaches readers how to maintain lifelong health. Groundbreaking and timely, THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION is the fastest way to lose weight, prevent disease, and feel better than ever.
I was planning on writing something about this book, then saw that, and thought I couldn't say it any better! Here is Dr. Hyman's website, which he describes as having an abundance of information but I actually found a bit unwieldy.
I think it is so important for us all to know that we can change our health based on how we eat. But it is also so hard, especially when we are "addicted" to sugar and white flour. Dr. Hyman also understands this, and his program is designed to help us overcome this and actually get healthy.
What I find most interesting about Dr. Hyman is the amount of books he has that generally espouse the same thing. But he markets them to different people. He angles to those for an UltraMind, or UltraMetabolism, or UltraThyroid, or, now, for Diabesity. He keeps saying his same message but marketing it to a different segment of the population. I also find it interesting that he calls this nutrigenomics, or the science of customizing nutrition for each person, but then the recommendations for each customization are so similar.
