For many, losing weight is a never-ending struggle -- especially since our bodies are designed to keep weight on at all costs; it's a matter of survival. But a medical revolution is under way, showing us how to work with our bodies instead of against them to ignite the natural fat-burning furnaces that lie dormant within us. Drawing on the cutting-edge science of nutrigenomics -- how food talks to our genes -- Dr. Mark Hyman has created a way of losing weight by eating the right foods, which in turn sends the right messages to our bodies.
In this easy-to-follow eight-week plan based on each individual's unique genetic needs, Dr. Hyman explains how to customize your personal weight-loss program with menus, recipes, shopping lists, and recommendations for supplements and exercise. Ultimately, you will rebalance and stabilize your metabolism -- an UltraMetabolism -- to maintain weight loss and enjoy lifelong health.

When I found Dr Hyman's book, I expected to lose weight and I have. What I didn't expect was how clear-headed I would become. I'm no longer brain-fogged and sleep walking. I don't want coffee or need it. In fact, I don't really want food all that often. I literally have to force myself to eat. Why? Previously, what drove me to eat wasn't hunger; it was appetite. My cravings prompted me to eat. Now that I'm off sugar, caffeine, gluten, white rice and potatoes, I feel AMAZING. Food IS medicine. Used as such, you, too, will get these same benefits.
I don't usually write reviews, but I am happy to write this one. Dr Hyman is a life saver.
I bought the audio version for myself and thought so much of it that I've started buying it in the prefered versions for others as well that have similar interests (some people love to read and so I get them the printed, those the like audiobooks such as myself I get them that).
Very, very important in this book is dispelling myths about weight loss efforts that don't work or work, but are horrible for your health and (most importantly) WHY they are or are not. MUCH of the book is common sense, but again, WHY it's right or not. Everyone knows to eat right and exercise, but what does that really mean? Is it the same for everone? What is good exercise? How much do we need? WHY do we need to exercise? What does it do for us? What is healthy eating? Is what is healthy for you also for me? This is only a portion of the book of course, but I liked the fact that all of these questions were answered very well.
I strongly recommend it to anyone with an interest in their health. This (along with the Superfoods books) should, I believe, be taught in schools to provide the knowledge needed to people of all ages.
