THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION offers a revolutionary lifestyle and diet program that will treat the causes of the current health epidemic, not simply the symptoms. Diabesity describes the state of metabolic imbalance and disease in which over 160 million Americans find themselves. Driven primarily by lifestyle factors, this condition and its life-threatening effects can be reversed. In the book, Dr. Hyman describes the seven keys to wellness--nutrition, hormones, inflammation, digestion, detoxification, energy metabolism, and a calm mind--and explains his six-week healthy-living program. With advice on nutrition, green living, supplements and medication, exercise, and how to personally tailor the plan for optimal results, the book also teaches readers how to maintain health after they have completed the program. Groundbreaking and timely, THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION is the fastest way to lose weight, prevent disease, and feel better than ever.
