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.
The Blood Sugar Solution 10 Day Detox Diet: Activate Your Body's Natural Ability to Burn Fat and Lose Weight Fast — which you can pre-order now — was tested by 600 people, who achieved tremendous success.
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.
