The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook
More than 175 ultra-tasty recipes for total health and weight loss
Dr. Mark Hyman is a 5-time best-selling author of books like UltraMetabolism and The UltraMind Solution, and now The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook.
The cookbook is an extension of his book The Blood Sugar Solution, which is a six week plan that outlines the seven keys to treating diabesity, which is the combination of obesity and diabetes that is affecting millions of Americans today.
Cooking is a revolutionary act, Human argues, saying the solution for our nation's health problems ultimately lies in the kitchen.
Your tongue can be fooled and then your brain can become addicted to both fast and highly-processed foods. Even if junk and fast food don't make you fat, they will make you sick.
The Blood Sugar Solution lays the groundwork for helping you complete a fridge makeover, a pantry makeover and a shopping cart makeover. And the cookbook takes it a step further, outlining what to do with the new, healthy foods you've resolved to buy.
The more than 175 recipes include offerings for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and desserts.
A few of the recipes we found most appetizing included the ultra breakfast shake with plant protein powder, flaxseed, frozen fruit, and nut butter; Dr. Hyman's Chinese eggs and greens featuring spinach, eggs and black rice; and the sweet potato burgers featuring sweet potato, cannellini beans and curry powder. Each recipe includes prep and cook time, level of difficulty, serving size and estimated cost.
In addition, the recipes are broken into a "Basic Plan" and "Advanced Plan. The basic is for those who have mild "diabesity," meaning those who are on the road to pre-diabetes and diabetes. The advanced is for those who are already pre-diabetic or type-2 diabetic.
There is also a "Reintroduction" section with recipes to help dieters who have followed the Blood Sugar Solution plan for 6-12 weeks and who have re-set their metabolism, begin reintroducing gluten and dairy back into their diet the smart way.
Though Dr. Hyman encourages readers to eliminate all sugar from their diets, he also includes a "Desserts" section to help those with a sweet tooth indulge healthfully.
