The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet – Dr. Sara’s Book Club #9
Posted on 20 February 2014
We all want to be healthy, vital and feel radiant from the inside out.But many of us, even as we try so hard to be health conscious, end up settling for “good enough” (and mistaking it for true health). In fact, most of us don’t even realize how off-balance we have been, until we make a change and no longer feel that way! Dr. Mark Hyman explains that the best way to show yourself how amazing you can actually feel is with a “quick-start reboot” of your system. His book, The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet: Activate Your Body’s Natural Ability to Burn Fat and Lose Weight Fast, guides you through a simple, effective program to reset your body in just 10 days. The 10-Day Detox Diet is a scientifically designed program to restore health by identifying the junk in your diet, getting rid of it and replacing it with real food. Are you less than thrilled about your relationship with food? Do you wonder why you just can’t seem to stop eating things you know are bad? Dr. Hyman explains the answer – food addiction. That’s right, it’s a real thing. If you’re overweight, have high blood sugar or get cravings for sugar and starches, chances are you are a food addict. However, it’s not your fault – you’ve been hoodwinked. Essentially, big food corporations target consumers by engineering their products to be addictive! The food industry creates sugary, hyperprocessed, superpalatable products that activate the addiction center of the brain, exactly the way alcohol and drugs do. And unfortunately, one of the worst, deadliest drugs on the planet is sugar (and anything that turns to sugar in your body). Sugar and refined carbohydrates are the culprits behind inflammation, hormonal imbalance and toxicity, which give rise to obesity, diabetes and a host of other debilitating health issues. Interested in business, not health, the food industry pulls out all the stops and makes the products they know will get us coming back for more. We get hooked and, sure enough, can’t stop eating these superaddictive foods that literally make us sick. The “10-Day Detox Diet” is the perfect first step to extricating yourself from the grip of food addiction, and putting you on a path to finally feeling clear, balanced and whole. I love this book because Dr. Hyman approaches the problem from a compassionate standpoint. He is on your side! He understands the food woes plaguing our society, and delivers an empowering message: The food industry needs to be held accountable for this mess, but until that happens, it only takes 10 days for you to say “no” to their tricks and to regain control over your health. The “10-Day Detox Diet” is an airtight plan that is unforgiving of the addictive toxins in the body and the corporate food industry that keeps us all hooked.
