Every so often you read a book that inspires you to change your way of thinking or the way you do something. I am in the process of reading a book that has caused me to questioned my health. I am naturally into being healthy as having a degree in health care and also working in health care. I received The The Blood Sugar Solution: The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease, and Feeling Great Now! to Review by Dr. Mark Hyman.
When I first received the book I figured it was a just another health book, but boy was I wrong. The book reveals that the secret solution to losing weight and preventing the conditions that we fear the most such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer. I learned that this can be achieved with balanced insulin levels. Dr. Hyman describes the seven keys to achieving wellness:
- energy metabolism
- calm mind
All these keys all have a part of this revolutionary healthy-living program. It doesn’t end there you will also get advice and tips on getting on a healthy diet, green living, supplements & medication, exercising, and personalizing the plan to best fit your health status and deliver results. You will also learn how to maintain lifelong health, which what I think sets this health book away from others. The Blood Sugar Solution is the true solution to lose weight, prevent disease, and feel better than ever. As you probably know, obesity and type 2 diabetes—two diseases that usually go hand in hand have been increasing in the past two decades in epidemic numbers. Recent estimates predict that by the year 2030, over half of American adults will be obese and 552 million people will struggle with diabetes. In this new book, The Blood Sugar Solution,Dr. Mark Hyman offers a promising solution for the dual head problem of obesity and insulin resistant diabetes, which Dr.Hyman refers to as “diabesity.” We can start now by educating ourselves and future generations on how to stay healthy and avoid these diseases.

The Blood Sugar Solution provides a personalized plan that breaks through myths and misconceptions about diabesity, and lays out seven key steps to preventing, treating and reversing both diseases by dealing with the underlying causes.
