Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION offers a revolutionary lifestyle and diet program that will treat the causes of the current health epidemic, not simply the symptoms.

Diabesity describes the state of metabolic imbalance and disease in which over 160 million Americans find themselves. Driven primarily by lifestyle factors, this condition and its life-threatening effects can be reversed. In the book, Dr. Hyman describes the seven keys to wellness--nutrition, hormones, inflammation, digestion, detoxification, energy metabolism, and a calm mind--and explains his six-week healthy-living program. With advice on nutrition, green living, supplements and medication, exercise, and how to personally tailor the plan for optimal results, the book also teaches readers how to maintain health after they have completed the program. Groundbreaking and timely, THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION is the fastest way to lose weight, prevent disease, and feel better than ever.

Review:

"Collusion between food industry giants, the U.S. government, and the health care industry has put modern medicine in crisis, says functional medicine pioneer Hyman (The UltraMind Solution; UltraMetabolism). He points to imbalances in seven body systems that cause life-altering chronic illness (heart disease, stroke, dementia, depression, etc.), and traces the root of many of these illnesses to insulin resistance and what he calls 'diabesity.' A global epidemic of diabetes and obesity — including children and teenagers — and the rising number of people in their 20s having cardiac bypass surgery indicates, he suggests, a need for community-based movements involving schools, religious organizations, and neighborhoods in a complete dietary makeover. His program can be used with children over age 12 and consists of a two-week preparation phase and six-week routine for diet, supplements, exercise, and stress relief. Hyman assures readers that neither their genes nor a lack of will are to blame for their struggles in 'obesogenic environments' filled with 'Frankenfoods.' Quizzes, shopping lists, recipes, and tips for overcoming obstacles will keep readers on track, while Hyman's memorable terminology, passion, and simplicity will keep them highly motivated.
