Product Description

Review

"Dr. Hyman has done it again with a lucid description of the causes of the diabesity epidemic and a powerful treatment program. "The Blood Sugar Solution" is a must-read for anyone anywhere on the spectrum between mild insulin resistance and full-blown Type-2 diabetes--a groundbreaking, science-based, easy-to-follow prescription. Start your journey to healing now!" "Mehmet Oz, MD""

"With compassion and authority, Dr. Mark Hyman addresses the real driver of overeating, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and more-insulin. Insulin imbalance, the secret killer, robs millions of a rich, joyful, happy life. If you have struggled with weight and ill health, you will find a new doorway to wellness through his solid science-based, personalized solution." "Deepak Chopra""

"Diabesity is not longer a hidden epidemic-it's visually obvious all over North America and the primary driver of ill health and out-of-control healthcare costs. Dr. Hyman once again nails the problems and provides real solutions." "Joseph Pizzorno, ND, co-author "Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine"""

"If you want to be empowered to change your life, lose weight, and get to the bottom of chronic health problems, "The Blood Sugar Solution" by Dr. Mark Hyman will take you all the way there. Dr. Hyman is the best kind of doctor -educator, coach, and motivator. He presents a radically new scientific approach more powerful than any drug or surgery. Read this book and solve your struggles with weight, diabetes, and other diseases forever." "Jack Canfield, coauthor of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series""

""The Blood Sugar Solution "is spot on accurate. This is a blueprint for restoring the health of our nation!" "Christiane Northrup, MD, author of "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom" and "The Wisdom of Menopause"""

"First, the bad news: Type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes will affect half of Americans in the next few years. Drugs are not very effective at preventing the complications of diabetes, including heart disease, blindness, impotence, amputations, and kidney damage. Now, the good news: diabetes is completely preventable and even reversible for most people--today--simply by changing diet and lifestyle. In The Blood Sugar Solution, Dr. Mark Hyman shows you how." "Dean Ornish, MD""

"Are you desperate to feel better but don't know where to begin? Has your doctor prescribed a quick fix pill, but no solid game plan? This is your lucky day. Dr. Mark Hyman's revolutionary work has the power to radically transform and uplift your life. He is the shining, break-out voice of a new breed of functional medicine doctors who treat root causes rather than the symptoms. Let Mark be your guide and your teacher as you create a happy, healthy body filled with sustainable energy and balance. I can't say enough about this brilliant pioneer, and once you read his book, I know you will agree." "Kris Carr, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Crazy Sexy Diet"""

"In "The Blood Sugar Solution, " Mark Hyman maps a road to health that will benefit anyone. Read it for yourself, your family, your friends. Give this book to the people you love." "Daniel Goleman, author of "Emotional Intelligence"""

Learn from him and you will surely lower your blood sugar-and most likely live longer and better." "James S. Gordon, MD, founder and director of The Center for Mind-Body Medicine and author of "Unstuck"""

"Dr. Hyman has taken on the most important health issue not just in the United States but around most of the world-diabesity. And, as usual, he has performed a great service, this time by providing a blueprint for attacking diabesity for individuals struggling with its complications and for the larger community, where it is a major economic as well as major health problem." "Arthur Agatston, MD, author of "The South Beach Diet"""

"Dr. Mark Hyman makes managing your health simpler than you ever thought possible. There's no time like the present to get started. Don't wait till tomorrow! Start today!" "Rick Warren, author of "The Purpose Driven Life"""

"In his book "The Blood Sugar Solution", Dr. Mark Hyman combines the latest scientific findings and decades of experience to show how correcting physical imbalances - involving nutrition, inflammation, allergy, toxicity, metabolism and stress - can reverse prediabetes and prevent heart disease. "The Blood Sugar Solution" provides a radical new program to restore radiant health and well-being for millions of Americans struggling with chronic disease." "David S. Ludwig, MD, PhD, Professor of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School, and author of "Ending the Food Fight"""

"I have either reviewed or read hundreds of nutrition and health books over the past thirty years as a professional in the field. Many of these books have touched upon the topic of blood sugar and diabetes. It is Dr. Hyman's book The Blood Sugar Solution, however, that has struck me to be the perfect balance between helping the reader to understand the revolution that is occurring in the science of blood sugar and chronic disease with the 'news to use' for the reader to successfully apply this breakthrough information in their own lives years before it becomes common knowledge. The questionnaires in this book engage the reader in a way that connects their lives to health solutions in a very unique manner." "Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACN, FACB, Founder, Institute for Functional Medicine""

"With our world facing multiple crises, including a dramatic rise in diabetes, " The Blood Sugar Solution" arrives not a minute too soon. Dr. Mark Hyman's insistence on identifying the root social causes of obesity and diabetes is a crucial step beyond many of our long-held assumptions and in the direction of real solutions. Our children deserve nothing less." "Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group""

"Functional medicine pioneer Hyman... points to imbalances in seven body systems that cause life-altering chronic illness. 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." "Publishers Weekly""

"Hyman's book is mindful, comprehensive and impeccably organized...An avalanche of vital information and advice from an enthusiastic wellness expert." "Kirkus Reviews""

"THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION is a highly informative but, thankfully, also a very accessible book for both professionals and the laypersons... He writes with passion and a sense of urgency - and rightly so. The obesity crisis keeps growing unabatedly worldwide and the time for "small steps" may have passed." "Seattle Post-Intelligencer""

"Rare, indeed, is the individual who combines scientific expertise, deep caring, and equally deep insights. Dr. Hyman is one of these, and in addition, as a leader in functional medicine, has a unique ability to see past the many adverse effects of a lifestyle at odds with health to the underlying causes both within and all around us. He puts all of these attributes to work for you in "The Blood Sugar Solution," providing detailed guidance for both individuals, and the population, to avoid the perils of obesity and chronic disease-and get to health." "David L. Katz, MD, Director, Yale University Prevention Research Center""

This book along with "Ultrametabolism" has changed my life. I'm 20lbs lighter, fitter, and healthier after using the tools that Dr. Hyman provide. I've given up 'the white menace' entirely (6 months strong!) and feel better than I have in years (I'm pushing 40). My body functions better, I sleep well, I'm not bloated, and best of all, my processed starchy white foods cravings are gone. A nice bowl of cut fruit is now my sugar. I couldn't be happier with Dr. Hyman and the science. I strongly urge you to read this, and any one of his books, if you're not at optimal health and/or you feel sluggish and stuck in a food rut. Americans tend to eat so much 'non-food' food. WHOLE, fresh, real, unprocessed food is the key to living a long healthy life and with this I couldn't agree more!

What a great book. For years I was struggling with my sweet tooth, afternoon energy slumps, fatigue and endless cravings. Recently I decided enough was enough. I saw a write up about this book in the national press, was intrigued so decided to buy it. I did a week long prep to get used to the idea of going on the blood sugar solution 'diet' because I expected it would be hard to stick to it. To my surprise it was not.

I cut out all sugar, wheat and dairy and stocked on supplements and followed the eating plan as prescribed. To my surprise from day one my cravings disappeared, I now have more energy, no more afternoon slumps, I'm never hungry and generally feel great. And I'm only two weeks into this. The recipes are so delicious, I am so pleased I have found this book. I am not diabetic by the way, but was heading that way. The only drawback is the fact that the supplements are expensive and of course all this fresh healthy food is too. And having to cook every day but surprisingly it does not take too much time with a bit of practice. But the benefits are amazing. I never write reviews but had to share this.

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.

This man's books and knowledge are so helpful. Yes, they are a little exaggerated and american but the content is good and well worth a read. He has some great facts and information that even the most health conscious of us may not know. I have tried this and it works. I started to feel a benefit within two weeks

I'm a doctor suffering from type 2 diabetes. I have been on oraledication for controlling my diabetes. I'm obese as well. So far it has been very tricky to manage my blood sugars. As I tried to have a tight control I was prone to have hypoglycemia and every time my blood sugars will drop I had to take something sweet to recover and I always ended up having ore than what I needed so result was a big rise in my levels. I was exercising but non of my exercise sessions went without an episode of hypoglycemia and eventually sweet intake and so on. I had to carry something sweet with me all the time just in case. I was anxious, had extreme sweet craving so much so that without realisation I was having sweets all day and my love for sweets was becoming an addiction because I was becoming an addict to my cravings. Now this book has totally changed my life. I haven't started to follow it 100% which I could not due to multiple reasons but I in tend to as soon as possible and I would recommend others to do as well. I have incorporated all the principles in my diet and am sticking to most of the ingredients and supplements recommended by Dr. Hyman in this book. I have started exercising too. I came off my diabetes medication straight away, I haven't had any episode of hypoglycemia since. I feel great , my focus is on getting healthy and managing my diabetes and as he says I'm loosing weight as a side effect, so far I have lost 7 pounds in 4 weeks. It's a bonus because I'm eating good quality food without being hungry.
I would recommend you to buy this book if you really want to change your life and defeat diabetes, obesity, belly fat, poly cystic ovaries and sweet cravings.
