The recipes are easy to prepare and taste great.
Peggy Stringer
One book needs the other - buy this one for more great recipes and a continuation of the first book's advice.
Amazon Customer
The food tastes great due to the spices, so I never have a problem wanting something I shouldn't have.

If you are looking for a diet book, this book isn't for you. If, however, you want to change the way you eat, feel better, and keep the weight off that you lose then buy this book.

The first section of the book explains why preservatives and artificial food additives are bad and why eating freshly made foods can increase the metabolism. The second section is divided into two phases of recipes; the first being a month-long detoxification phase to clear out preservatives and artificial substances out of the body, and the second phase is a more broad set of recipes that is less restrictive on what you can eat.

If you do plan to try this book, you need to be prepared to:

1) Be able to follow recipes and cook for yourself or have some one to do so for you. No fast food or frozen dinners.
2) Have time to cook. While some of the recipes are quick, others take quite a bit of time. I can make grilled chicken in about 15 minutes, but making soup can take nearly an hour. (I double or triple recipes and keep left-overs for time-consuming recipes.)
3) Buy kitchen utensils and appliances. The book lists useful ones. I haven't bought the full list, but the ones I have do really help make things easier.

Now you must be asking yourself, "If I get this book, will it really work?" In my case, I have been seriously overweight for most of my life. I have tried other diets, but none seemed to work. At my last weigh-in at my doctor's office before getting this book I was 344 lbs and wearing a size 50 jeans. After 5 months using these recipes I returned and weighed in at 279 lbs wearing a size 44 jeans (That is 65 lbs in 5 months).

Try it, stick with it, and it will work for you.

I have to say that this is the best cookbook as far as using whole foods and grains. I started on this eating program 3 weeks ago and have already lost 11 lbs. It can get time consuming cooking all your food from scratch but I have to say that I feel like I am eating like a queen. Fast food joints and quick food can not compare to the receipes in this book. It's like eating at a gourmet restaurant all the time. I feel so much better, less pain from fibromyalgia and much more energy. Truly amazing.

I tried the Ultrametabolism detox diet and had great success, so it was natural for me to want the cookbook. I love it! It includes a list of allergens for each recipe and includes nutritional information. Most of the recipes are fairly basic and not too time consuming. We have like just about everything we have tried. I definitely recommend this book!

I am a relatively healthy and active 28 year old female who takes a Beta-Blocker (Inderal LA, 60mg 1x daily) and a Benzodiazepine (Klonopin, 1mg 1x daily) for anxiety.

I have followed the enhanced UltraSimple Diet FAITHFULLY for the last six days with NO weight loss and NO inches lost.

Discouraged by my results, I decided to google my drugs to see if they were the cause of my problems. I did this with the foreknowledge that some drugs will inhibit weight loss, because I spent a YEAR on Phase I of the Ultrametabolism Diet not losing weight and not understanding that it was caused by the SSRI that I was on at the time, Effexor. Once I came off of the Effexor, and after a few months, I was shedding weight at the impressive rate of 0.5 lbs per day.

Dr. Hyman is correct in the fact that we are constantly poisioning our bodies with toxic chemicals daily. What he doesn't point out is, that sometimes toxins come disguised as pharmaceuticals.

Lesson for all those reading: Check your medications! Read the pharmacy label, read about it on the internet. Find out if it, or the family it is in, has a history of causeing weight gain and/or weight loss. If it does, talk to your doctor about discontinuing the drug BEFORE you waste your time, energy, and money investing in the Ultra-diets.

Below is a link, and then the article found on that link about beta blockers worsening insulin resistance as well as causing metabolic resistance to weight loss.

***** BETA BLOCKERS SIDE EFFECTS *****

Gabe Mirkin, M.D.

Recent research shows that beta blockers and diuretics, the drugs prescribed most often for high blood pressure, cause high blood sugar levels, weight gain, tiredness and impotence.

I got this book about a year and a half ago and it is still my go to cookbook. I haven't made a single recipe that I haven't loved and gotten rave reviews for. The quinoa and garbanzo bean salad is to die for and the green bean, tomato and pumpkin seed salad is phenomonal (I've had multiple people ask for the recipe). I've been a bit slacking lately, but when I was fully committed to the book I dropped from a size 6 to a size 4 which is smaller than I was in high school when I was extremely active. Fully committing is pretty costly, but definitely worth it. I'm hoping he comes out with a second book soon cause I've made each of these quite a few times already! On a seperate note, Clean Eating Magazine also has a ton of amazing recipes if you are looking for delicious and clean options and runs a close second to this book!
