This review is from: The Blood Sugar Solution: The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease, and Feeling Great Now! (Hardcover)
I was one of the Beta testers and the first word that comes to mind is "transformation". In 6 weeks I dropped 25 pounds, 6 inches off my waist, A1c from a 6.9 down to a 5.4!
When I received the book I was a little overwhelmed at first wondering how I was going to make all the changes. My advice is to follow the weekly guide and you will have no problems. One week we just thought about the things we were going to do without, the next we cleaned out the cabinets....the actual week we stared the diet the first few days were a little difficult because things were just so different...we had to learn how to eat good, delicious, wholesome foods. After a few days of detoxing we all started feeling better (we were able to be in contact with one another...community really works). I lost 10 lbs the first week...all off my middle which really got me motivated as I had been trying to loose weight for years with no luck. There was no calorie counting and the weight just fell off. Aches and pains just faded away.
If you really want to get yourself back to health and see complete metamorphosis in yourself in a few short weeks you've got to get this book...you won't be sorry and speaking for myself, I feel so good that I don't plan to ever go back to my old ways of eating. Thank you Dr. Hyman!!

Yes, I'm still holding my weight down and living by Dr. Hyman's plan. On occasion I get off track and my body talks back with fluid, bloating and aching. It doesn't take long for me to get back on track. You will feel so good on this plan and get such good results that I'm sure you will find it to be something you will want to keep doing.

Kathy, I'm interested in getting into one of the Beta test groups you mentioned. Where do I go to find out more about it? Great review by the way!

Did you experience a lot of hunger and cravings the first few days on the diet?

The first 7-9 days I did feel hungry but after that I was home free. The trick is to make sure you don't get any sweets or artifical sweetners. I even went as far as my mouthwash making sure it didn't have any sweetners but the results were soooo worth it!!
