Why we chose this book
This book was suggested to me by Deb Indorato, RD, a reviewer of Dr. Hyman's earlier course, The UltraMind Solution. Mark Hyman, MD has a good writing style and ability to describe complicated medical conditions so people will understand them. He has had good success with his patients using his restrictive diet to restore insulin sensitivity. Amazon book reviewers were mixed between feeling the program was too commercial (purchase of supplements) and positive comments from people who had tried the program and lost weight or reduced/eliminated pain and diabetes medication.
