Here's Why This Isn't "Just Another Diet."
on May 4, 2016
As someone who has been in a body conscious business most of her life, I have been to hell and back trying to keep weight off. The problem was hugely exacerbated by my Hashimoto's thyroiditis. I'm also a classic endomorphic body type (curvy when slim, but a SpongeBob when heavy). I spent HOURS in the gym doing intense, sometimes grueling exercise. When I stayed off gluten, I did okay. It was still infuriating that I wasn't thinner, but after two kids, I figured that was pretty much what I could expect. Yet I was still dumping a ton of Nutrasweet (that stuff is the devil) in my coffee, drinking barrels of it, and eating white rice and the occasional potato. I'm someone who really needs to stay away from the "white menace."
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.
