Dr. Mark Hyman , one the physicians I most admire, has a new book coming out soon, which offers a 10-day plan that can help you slim down, lower your blood pressure and blood sugar, and boost your health.
Collectively, they peeled off a collective 4,089 pounds and saw their average blood sugar and blood pressure numbers drop by 20 points and 10 points respectively.
Dr. Hyman contends that people's taste buds have been hijacked by processed, super-palatable, high-sugar foods that drive your hormones and neurotransmitters to make you eat more. (I totally agree.)
In addition, Dr. Hyman points out that people are ingesting "pharmacological doses of sugar and flour never before seen in the history of the human race" -- about 146 pounds of flour and 152 pounds of sugar every year."
You also have a chance to read an excerpt from the book in the Daily News piece .
Please note that the photo to your left of Dr. Hyman dummping out sugar was taken by Ian Grey, and it appeared in the Daily News article .
Dr. Hyman's credentials are impressive. He was former co-medical director of Canyon Ranch for a decade.
He is now chairman of the Institute for Functional Medicine, founder and medical director of The UlCenter and a #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Blood Sugar Solution, Ultrametabolism, TheUltramind Solution, and The Ultrasimple Diet, and coauthor of Ultraprevention.
