I've been looking forward to this cookbook, because it can be difficult to "convert" our old recipes to fit this new way of cooking. If you're like me, your grocery shopping list will look NOTHING like what you've been buying before now. Be prepared to think differently about what you feed your body.
Dr. Hyman's goal, and the purpose of this healthy way of eating, is to help us prevent (preferably) or reverse two life-threatening epidemics...obesity and diabetes...or what he calls "Diabesity." He's done tons of research that explains why after so many years and so many "diets," we're so much more physically ill.
If you haven't read his book, that's okay because I would say The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook can certainly stand on its own. He actually covers a lot of the same basic information you need...such as taking a quiz to determine whether or not you're suffering from "diabesity". He also encourages you to visit his web site where you can find lots of information and join support groups...if that is of interest to you.
The recipes in this cookbook are based on a healthy eating plan that cuts out all types of sugars (the main focus and of course my point of weakness!), flour, processed foods, and packaged foods. In other words...our meals should contain "real", unaltered, unprocessed whole foods.Read more ›
I also love to cook, and have amassed a collection of cookbooks from around the world. Given my background, a good number of them would be categorized as "healthy eating"-type books.
My primary beef with most low-carb diets is an over-reliance on individual glycemic index "scores." This book does NOT take that approach. It recognizes that these individual scores can be mitigated by what else one consumes at the same time, and that "glycemic load" is more realistic than "glycemic index" in determining the impact on blood sugar. In other words, some carbs are OK, in moderation, and combined with other foods. From page 36, "Adding fiber, protein, or fat to any carbohydrate will also lower the glycemic load of the meal." And the recipes reflect this sensible approach.
So what about the recipes? They're divided into two groups: "basic," and "advanced." The "advanced" group is much more restrictive, and is for people who are seriously obese, who already have diabetes, or who have other conditions that necessitate a more restrictive approach. There is a self-quiz in the introductory chapters that tells you which set of recipes to use as a start.
The advanced recipes eliminate grains and starchy vegetables and limit fruits to 1/2 C per day. Even with these restrictions, there are some excellent recipes in this section.Read more ›

I don't follow all of the latest fads in diets so I had never heard of The Blood Sugar Solution, so WOW was I ever surprised when The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook: More than 175 Ultra-Tasty Recipes for Total Health and Weight Loss showed up a couple of days later. Other than a handful of smoothie recipes (I don't like smoothies - any of them, not just these), there isn't a single recipe in this book that I wouldn't cook, eat and serve to guests. Many of them are quite similar to things that I already make. I didn't come across a single recipe where my first thought was "my family wouldn't touch that" - and that is very important. It is very hard, both psychologically and financially, to "diet" while those around you eat all the things that you wish you were eating.Read more ›
