Got very tired of being referred to his website(s) and for additional money you could have more and "better" information. It really took away from the important message about balanced program and going raw diet.

I was a Beta Tester for this book, I learned so much, lost 8" and 15 lbs while following the book. The Best part is Dr. Hyman breaks it down to focus on one skills a week to build on. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to feel healthy and alive!

Loved reading the book. It helped me understand many things about myself and the food I eat and the health conditions I am in. The book really helps to make the connection between the symptoms and what goes on inside our bodies. Thank you for publishing this!

Individuals that are Diabetic know if you control your blood sugar you will have a better quality of life and a longer life.
You have only to look at the difference in former President Bill Clinton to see that it works.

The first "bible" I used when dealing with my newly-diagnosed diabetes was "Diabetes for Dummies", which was excellent in helping me to fight the disease. Two months later, as I was beginning to slacken off in following what I had learned from that book, I was lucky to then hear about Mark Hyman's "Blood Sugar Solution", which I bought. I was newly inspired to continue following the information in both books, and four months after having been diagnosed with diabetes, I had lost forty pounds, lost eight inches in belt size, and was no longer diabetic. I still follow what I learned from both books, though less strictly, and nine months since first being diagnosed as being diabetic, I am still diabetic-free.

I am the first to admit that I approach any wellness book with a grain (OK, a pound) of salt. There will never be a magic meal plan or pill that will make a person lose weight and feel great. Any permanent results come from hard work ' eating healthy, whole foods and getting off the couch. I was not expecting too much from The Blood Sugar Solution, but was hoping to understand more about blood sugar levels and foods that help to stabilize it. This book, however, proved to be more. It was refreshing to read a book that challenged the reader to create his or her own health through education, nutrition, exercise and balanced self-care, including stress management and having fun.

I was overwhelmed with the number of questions given to evaluate present health and there are very few people I know who would not score off the charts and start to believe they were in imminent danger of hospitalization from some of the evaluations. However, once past Part 1, the advice given was balanced, practical and encouraging. I enjoyed learning about the natural supplements available and which foods were more toxic than others as well as the section on taking action to be more aware of health dangers in places of work, learning, worship and health care. Many of the recipes included in the meal plans look fantastic (Minty Hummus ' yum) and the website has many resources and links for further education.
While a little extreme in some areas, I was pleasantly surprised by a more reasonable approach to health and wellness. I will be passing this book along.

I give this book 4 stars out of 5.

I received this book free from Hachette Book Group. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own

Have been using this guide and the Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook for 7 weeks have lost 17lbs and gained a whole new relationship with food, along with renewed health and energy. I would recommend this to anyone with any health concerns and for those who just want a healthier body and higher level of nutritious food intake. It does address a number of health issues not just high blood sugar, it is an excellent way to hit the reset button and start over with clean slate. The first couple weeks were a bit challenging but got easier each week, I have more energy and actually even deal with work stress much better. I just jumped in and got started right away before I could come up with a 100 excuses why I couldn't or it wasn't the right time (you know the drill) I did read through the book during the first two weeks and referred back many times after that. So if you want a better quality of life with a healthier body this may be program for you, it was for me I actually appreciate and enjoy food more then I ever did before.

Excellent, thoughtful, useful book. An important topic well done. I don't agree with all the suggestions such as supplements, but then as the old saying goes, when there is a war you pass out guns. In peace you ask questions first.

His mention of leaky gut and importance of bacteria is important as well as many other ideas. Nowadays people are bacteria-phobic which is dangerous for our health.

A lot of his suggestions mirror natural or holistic ideas. Nice to see a Doctor with the combination of old ideas proven by young science.

I listened to the audiobook version which was well done.

I found the book 'The Blood Sugar Solution: The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing and Feeling Great Now!' a valuable reference to help control my blood sugar as I have Type 2 Diabetes. The information on studies conducted about the various foods, supplements, and others, which help to control blood sugar as well help in my overall health is fantastic. The various meal plans have helped a great deal. I also found things about these various foods and supplements, vitamins amazing. It has helped and will help me as I try to work on helping to control my Diabetes and help me to lose the needed weight to control my high pleasure as well. With this help and advice from my family doctor, I hope to eventually come off of my many medications now controlly this varies problems. I highly recommend this book for people who would like to get control of their Diabetes (at least, in my case, Type II) and to control their weight, as well!

This book was recommended to me by my Naturopath doctor and I am now off insulin. What could possibly be better than that?
