This review is from: The Blood Sugar Solution: The Bestselling Programme for Preventing Diabetes, Losing Weight and Feeling Great (Kindle Edition)
A lot of what Hyman has to say makes perfect sense and I'm sure he is sincere in his research and beliefs but some of what he says comes across as flim flam. Is he science first or agenda first?

He's perhaps a bit too strident and repetitive. I almost stopped reading because the introduction seemed to just say the same thing over and over; he's a bit too fond of ramming his message home. By the end of the book I felt browbeaten and his recipes and meal plans seemed a bit outre.

That said, I have substantially followed his advice to cut carbs and get my calories from protein and vegetables so something got through. My advice to readers feeling like putting the book down because you feel nagged is to hang in there because I do feel better for following his advice and I am losing weight.
