    This review is from: The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet: Activate Your Body’s Natural Ability to Burn Fat and Lose Weight Fast (Hardcover)
    Quickly I want to say- I am getting good results- but the first two days (especially day 2) is challenging – the body really wanted that sugar! I am not a coffee – tea or soda drinker so can’t give any info on caffeine & not a smoker – so no details for that either- sorry.

    I received this book quite quickly after it’s release date. I started the program on Monday of this week and so far I am down 6 pounds after 3 full days. I like the recipes in the book although I am finding it difficult to follow the food plan exactly as all recipes are 4 servings and there are only 2 in my household – so leftovers can get out of hand if I let them. Also, I am not a breakfast drink person – so I do not like the texture of the morning drink I chose from page 267- the flavor is fine though. Also, I have been feeling a bit shaky after my half hour walk through the woods with my dog and the shake does not seem to help with that (drinking the shake after our walk) – so today I decided I would eat the turkey meatballs & slaw that were from lunch on day one as my breakfast and use the shake at lunch time – as the shake is huge and filling. So far so good this morning! One note about the slaw that goes with the yummy turkey meatballs- I did have to steam the red cabbage & greens a bit to make that slaw easier to eat – the directions make it look like they are just supposed to be mixed in the bowl with other ingredients but when I tried to eat it that way I felt like wild life chewing up somebody’s garden!!

    The detox bath has been helpful in regards to stabilizing my body temp especially at night – it has made it easier to sleep. I had seen a version of the detox bath a few days prior to hearing about this book so I was already doing that – the recommendation (at first viewing of the detox bath) was once a week- I needed to do it about every 3-4 days. When I got the book it says to do this daily- I am not a bath person so I am finding it difficult to do this on a daily basis- but I have. I am looking forward to the end of this daily bath when the 10 days of the program is over but I will continue to use this remedy 1-2 times per week. I do energy healing work for my job so I find the meditation is not difficult – I generally do that portion while in the detox bath. For those of you who do not meditate – 10 minutes can be a challenge- when I first started this type of practice I could only manage 30 seconds – 1 minute before I would find my mind wandering. Finally- I just decided to count to myself – it gives your mind something meaningless to concentrate on while letting other parts of the brain rest. If you can not do the 10 minutes don’t worry- be gentle with yourself and do what you can-work your way up to 10 minutes.

    I have by no means followed this book to the letter-so I can not say how much better my results would be if I had/would but I am happy with the results so far. I am learning some great new eating habits and herb combinations. I was mainly looking to detox because I have been having sinus, asthma and acid reflux issues for the past several months. I will say those areas while not 100% better after 3 full days have greatly improved!!

    Upfront shopping costs are not great-but it has been worth every penny and then some. We spend money on crazy things that don’t necessarily honour us and one thing I learned for the book “The Soul of Money” is to spend money in a way that hounours who we are as individuals and the money will be available 10 fold. Good luck on beginning your new healthy adventure!! Namaste-

    PS-I did not purchase my supplements from the books website-I went to our food co-op and purchased what I did not have in my home. This was not cheap but it was less expensive than the 10 day supplement packet the website offers- also, my supplement selections will cover me for about a month.

    Can you actually start turning your health around in 10 days? Yes, you certainly can, and this book is an excellent guide to Hyman’s popular and science-based plan to “resetting” your body and ridding it of toxins — most especially sugar. Be warned: this plan goes far beyond diet alone. It is radical and time-consuming, and most people will find it a shocking change from their usual eating and living habits. But if you are ready to overcome easy habits in order to lose weight and improve your health, Hyman is an excellent guide. He walks you through the plan in great detail, explaining the science and rationale behind each facet of it. Hyman is both firm and upbeat, half doctor, half life coach. By the time you’ve finished this book, you’ll be convinced of the menace of “diabesity” and rarin’ to give up bad habits like sugary drinks and processed foods.

    Dr. Hyman states his philosophy simply as “out with the bad and in with the good.” The “bad” is sugar, gluten, grains, dairy, beans, processed foods, certain oils, alcohol and caffeine. The “good” is detoxing foods — whole, unprocessed foods like fresh vegetable, proteins (fish, poultry, meat), and healthy fats. The plan goes beyond food, encompassing supplements, exercise, relaxation, “detox baths,” journaling, and even a “media diet” designed to pull us away from our stressful screens.

    The 10-day plan is described in great detail. You’re not left to choose foods on your own; Hyman dictates what to eat and gives recipes. Each day of the plan has a specific theme and your day will be laid out by Hyman. Example themes: Day 1: Satisfy (your body’s cravings for good food). Day 5: Listen (to what’s going on in your heart and mind). He also provides a plan for “transitioning” off the detox phase, including reintroducing foods that you’d eliminated and evaluating whether they cause you problems.

    Through it all, Hyman is almost ridiculously thorough. This is both a strength and a weakness of the book. The sheer amount of information he gives you, and the large amount of changes he’s asking you to make at one time, could be overwhelming for some. So if you are considering this book, ask yourself: Am I the kind of person that likes everything explained and dictated to the utmost degree? If you are, this book will make you feel well taken care of, almost as if a kindly but firm parent were guiding you through every step of the way. If you are not, you may find the sheer all-encompassing quality of Hyman’s plan overwhelming, since it goes far beyond changing your diet into changing nearly every aspect of your lifestyle, and many aspects of the plan (besides food) are quite time-consuming. And a plan with 10 facets is much easier to trip up on than a plan with one or two.

    This plan can certainly be life-changing if you can work it. Personally, I preferred Hyman’s Blood Sugar Solution, which provided a longer-term plan (6 weeks, which is more difficult but a more realistic time frame to see major changes in your health) and even more scientific background. If you’re interested in whole-foods detox plans that don’t encompass many lifestyle changes and supplements, and don’t dictate specific meal plans, consider It Starts with Food which has a very similar 30-day plan (the “Whole 30”). If you are interested in learning more about the science and history behind how our society ended up plagued by junk foods and obesity, and why simple carbohydrates kill, pick up the superb Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes.

    One thing to be aware of: This plan will not be cheap in terms of time or money. You will have to pay for and prepare whole, fresh foods, replacing the cheap processed junk that provides quick calories and little nutrition. You will have to pay for supplements. You may even need to buy kitchen supplies if you haven’t been in the habit of cooking. But “health is wealth” — and in any case, you could eat prime rib every day for far less than it costs to treat the ills of “diabesity” with blood pressure medication, cholesterol drugs, metformin, insulin, etc.

    Ditching the toxic, processed, unnatural foods that our society pushes on us (with the government’s help, as Hyman explains) and replacing them with the whole, nutritious foods our bodies were meant to have may be the most important change you ever make in your health. Hyman’s 10-day plan is one way to make that change, and for many people, it will be just the right way.
