    This review is from: The Blood Sugar Solution: The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease, and Feeling Great Now! (Hardcover)
    Truth is simple. Always. Healthy eating is simple too. Dr. Hyman makes a good point in that there are only a handful of things that can go wrong with your physical body. Yet the medical profession has classified over 2,000 different diseases. This is insanity. Point well made by Dr. Hyman. However…..

    This is the second book I’ve read by Dr. Hyman. The first was The Ultra Mind Solution. Both books advocate essentially the same diet and supplements, etc. A word of caution is in order here. Dr. Hyman is a super-charged AMBITIOUS individual who believes he has a message to take to the world. Or at least that’s how he appears to me. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But…….

    Why does he have to make it so complicated? Healthy eating isn’t complicated. I found this book to be difficult, and boring. Worse, the implementation of his program is tediously complex and too difficult for me to follow without making a full-time job out of it. Many pages deal with stuff I have no interest in whatsoever and he spends so much time trying to convince you that there is a problem out there with the way most Americans eat. Duh!

    Dr. Hyman might possibly be one of the greatest guys on Earth, but at the same time, he is an incessant hype machine and a master marketer. It gets annoying after awhile. I have abandoned him as a source of dietary information, because there are other sources, advocating essentially the same diet (or close enough that it’s hard to tell any difference) that I don’t need to spend money on Dr. Hyman’s program. The info is out there for free. Don’t spend your money if you don’t have to. As another reviewer pointed out, there is nothing original in Dr Hyman’s book.

    After reading this book, I stumbled upon an internet diet called Beyond Diet, with is essentially the same diet Dr. Hyman advocates, but uses a slightly different approach in implementing it. This diet, however costs money to get into (which I did), and it’s way too comlpicated also, just like Dr. Hyman’s diet. Strike two.

    So basically I just eliminated eating everything except for the vegetables and fruits from my garden, supplemented by meat purchased at the store. Shortly after, I discovered something called the Paleo Diet which was almost exactly what I was already eating, and it turns out to be remarkeably similar, to Beyond Diet, as well as the Blood Sugar Solution. Any differences between the three are minor.

    What distinguishes the “paleo community,” however, is that although there are books written about it, you don’t need to buy any of them because all the information you need to know about the diet is free on a variety of websites. Google it and you’ll see. One of the more complete websites is Mark’s Daily Apple, which explains the diet in detail, in a straight forward, uncomplicated manner. If you’re the type that wants recipes, this site is loaded with them. They do sell a book, but you don’t need it – all the info you need about the paleo way of eating is there on the website.

    I am in no way affiliated with the above-mentioned website, and have no ulterior motives whatsoever for recommending it other than to simply share with you what I have found, There are many other paleo websites as well, and they’re all worth exploring.

    In summary, Dr. Hyman’s book for me was complicated and even stressful to try and use as a guide, not to mention expensive if you get his supplements. A better route is free and simple. Check out what paleo has to offer.

    Terrific resource, February 27, 2012

    This review is from: The Blood Sugar Solution: The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease, and Feeling Great Now! (Hardcover)

    Let me cut right to the chase: Do I think this book is worth buying? Yes. With reservations. Before I get to them, though, let me tell you why this is such a valuable resource. Dr. Hyman understands that there are a myriad of factors that affect both our weight and our overall health. One of the things I find most helpful about this book is the focus on environmental factors such as pollution, pesticides, hormones and antibiotics in our food. Taken a step or two further he has nothing good to say about heavily processed food, and while there are processed foods that I genuinely enjoy like Nutella (which I will no longer eat because it contains palm oil, which is a whole other issue) I recognize they’re not good for me, and I try to avoid anything that falls into this category. Fair enough, I say, it’s relatively simple to cut much of the processed food out of your diet. You just have to make smarter choices and work a little harder.

    It’s also relatively easy to buy foods that are organic, rBGH-free, free of high fructose corn syrup and so forth (non-GMO foods are harder.) Relatively easy. Not simple, and certainly not cheap. If you make a commitment to avoiding these things, it takes some homework, and rebudgeting. But doing these two things are good starts.

    Taking supplements because our diets will probably never provide the level of nutrients many of us need, that’s a good start too. Again, quality supplements aren’t cheap, and by now you’re beginning to see that good health is a bigger commitment than you might imagine. It’s not just about eating less and jogging for an hour each morning. Far from it. It’s about making the choices I’ve mentioned, and as Dr. Hyman points out, it’s about advocating for change in every aspect of life that affects our health. Big business isn’t going to worry about whether we’re fat and miserable, they’re just going to keep shoveling cheap, sugary, salty food at us and watching their bottom line. Industry isn’t going to clean up the air and water voluntarily because it costs them money. So part of taking control of your health is becoming an advocate for everyone’s health.

    Exercise is another important part of Dr. Hyman’s program, and I can testify to the effectiveness of even a little exercise. It has improved my blood glucose dramatically and put a big dent in my depression. We have to move to be healthy. I hate to say it because I’m sedentary by nature, but there it is. We have to move.

    Where I tend to disagree with Dr. Hyman is in the way he’s structured his program. Now I have no argument with the idea that cutting out whole food groups will help pinpoint whether you have a problem with them. That’s just common sense. What I do have a problem with is that you start the program by cutting out all sugar, including the so-called “healthy” sweeteners like honey, agave, stevia and all artificial ones; all gluten, all other flour products, even gluten free ones, all dairy, all processed foods, all grain, all starchy vegetables and all fruit except for 1/2 cup of berries a day. In fact, he says you should start by throwing out everything in these categories, just dump it. I say, I’m sorry, but who — apart from someone in a blind panic about his or her health problems — has the money to do that, not to mention the will power to wake up one morning knowing that you’re going to spend at least six weeks eating virtually nothing but lean meat or fish, legumes and leafy vegetables? I can’t. I can’t afford it and I sure know that I’d maybe last two days on a regimen like that before I’d be running out for a burger or some cookies. To me it’s like setting yourself up for failure and self-flagellation.

    You do start adding foods back into your diet once you’ve… I guess de-toxed is the word. Not that I necessarily buy into detoxification diets, but hey, whatever, right? You add them in and you pay attention to how you feel as you do. And that makes a lot of sense in terms of discovering where your problems lie, if any — there are group of questionnaires at the beginning of the book to help pinpoint where some of your problems may lie, and no matter what your score, Dr. Hyman says you need his plan. Well yeah; why would he say you don’t right? So so you might well ask what is the point of all those questions? But I think they’re valuable because they can show you where you really may be having problems. Sensibly, to me anyway, that’s the place to start. By all means work the program, but work it in a targeted manner. There’s so much in it that’s good that you have to start feeling better if you do even part of what he recommends. If you can do it all, then wow! Go you! You’re a star. But for most of us, that’s simply not going to happen no matter how much we may want to do it.

    Bottom line: This is a commonsense plan save for the fact that he doesn’t seem to accept that human…

    Costly ..to say the least, March 12, 2012

    This review is from: The Blood Sugar Solution: The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease, and Feeling Great Now! (Hardcover)
    I am on my second week of this diet. I love it and would give it all stars except for two major reasons..the cost!and the restrictions on what you can eat.

    I am really trying to stick with this. I go to the grocery store and the foods that are healthy are costly and have to be continously replenished because they are veggies and meats. Then, I read the book and it says join the community online for more support. I go to do that and it costs $19.99 a month to join. The supplements all listed to buy in his site cost upwards of $400 if you were to buy them all. So, I am choosing what I can afford..a few supplements I feel that are most important, some dinners, lunches and eggs etc..but mostly shakes from GNC..the new slimline ones. Basically, I am using his book but shopping everywhere else for the supplements, shakes etc.. He would have much more success having better prices and allowing free community support, especially if he wants before and after stories for his research! I had to sign up at a free support group but it would have been nice to have this diet specific support group.

    The other issue I have is how restrictive it really is. I am on the advanced plan and giving up: Lactose, Gluten, Carbs, My staple (diet coke or at least crystal light), even starchy veggies, and more..I mean really..of course if you eat like a caveman you are going to lose weight. The only thing left out of this diet was having us hunting and gathering our own food. He did come close by suggesting we all purchase a goat together.

    Although all the criticisms above I do intend to try to stick with this program. I just really feel bad that it is so costly and on top of that his site reads like a business model intended just to make him money. This book really goes to show why it is that low income families are stuck with weight problems and diabetes..the cost of eating healthy and taking multiple supplements is prohibitive.
