    This review is from: The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet: Activate Your Body’s Natural Ability to Burn Fat and Lose Weight Fast (Hardcover)

    First off, let me say, I am not a man. I won’t be reporting a 30 lb. weightloss in 30 days. Not happening. I’m a 49 year old, pre-menopausal woman. I had 3 kids in the span of 5 years between the ages of 37 and 42. Not an easy task at that age from a weightloss standpoint. After my first was born, I did WW and had no problem taking the weight off. After the second, it wasn’t so easy and after the third, all but impossible. I’ve been a vegetarian for 30 years and a vegan for 3. I know a lot about nutrition, or at least what the nutritionists have told us was right. I’m not at all blowing smoke when I tell you I eat around 1200 calories a day and workout 4-5 times per week doing vigorous workouts. None of it mattered. Nothing worked. Nothing.

    I went to my primary care physician and had a long conversation with her about my unhappiness with my weight. She commented that my BMI wasn’t all that bad and that, perhaps, “this is just who you are”. What??? That statement very much felt like giving up and the fact that I took the time to discuss this with her was evidence that I wasn’t ready to give up just yet. I was starting to feel like I was living in someone else’s body. I often felt anxious and jittery. Was this pre-diabetes? For a couple of years, I was convinced it was my thyroid – mostly because I couldn’t figure out why nothing would work. Then I’d have my thyroid tested and it would come back normal. I chalked it up to pre-menopause hormonal problems and figured I’d just continue to be overweight.

    I decided to give the 10-day detox a try. Why not? I’ve bought so many books over the years in a desperate attempt to figure out what’s wrong….what’s one more, right? I was a bit worried that being a vegan would slow my weightloss compared to non-vegans. Given the results he reports in the book from his study group, it has not slowed my progress at all. I started the plan nearly a month ago exactly. With two days to go in my month, I’ve lost 12 pounds. I even got stuck at the same weight for a week and a half and still lost 12 pounds! And, much of that was without strenuous workouts because my body had a tough time adjusting to the low carb diet. I was lacking energy, etc… I did not cheat at all. Never once. I didn’t follow the menus completely, but followed the guidelines. Shake for breakfast, protein and veggies/greens for lunch and dinner. Only in the first couple of days did I feel hungry. After that, my body adjusted and I now feel satisfied after every meal. I take the PGX pills regularly. I love that you are able to season your food on this diet. So many other diets I’ve tried eliminate sodium almost completely. Eating becomes so boring, you want to gag. I get to use salt and pepper and onion powder and tamari, etc… It makes eating so enjoyable. Who knew that what I was eating before was so wrong for me? Whole grains, etc… I won’t lie and tell you my cravings are gone. I don’t know who those people are, but I’ve had 49 years of conditioning to create those cravings. They’re not going to disappear in 30 days. I still crave bread when I smell it being toasted and often crave something sweet (dark chocolate) after dinner.

    For several years, I’d seen my blood pressure be slightly elevated at the doctor’s office. I’d always chalked it up to white coat hypertension because I could go back home and get a lower reading with my own cuff. However, those readings were always in the 135/85 neighborhood. Not horrible, but they could stand to be lower. After one week on this diet, I started getting readings of 125/75 and my lowest was 118/70. Pretty awesome.

    I can’t say enough good things about how this book is written. It makes so much intelligent sense. I also bought his “Eat Fat, Get Thin” book, but have decided to stay on the 10-day detox (as he recommends) since I have 30 lbs to lose. If you’re a woman of that certain age who has struggled to lose weight no matter what you try, give this a try. If it worked for me, you’ll likely have success too. Thank you, Dr. Hyman!

    Outstanding results for me with the 10-Day Detox Diet., May 27, 2014

    This review is from: The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet: Activate Your Body’s Natural Ability to Burn Fat and Lose Weight Fast (Kindle Edition)

    I’ll put the summary upfront: using the principles and plans in the 10-Day Detox Diet, I lost 12 lbs in the first 10 days, a total of 21 lbs in the first 30 days and now 30 lbs total in the first 50 days. (Update: as of August 2015 I’ve lost 60 lbs total). In addition, my overall feeling of health and my energy levels increased greatly.

    A little about me: I’m in my mid-fifties and am a relatively big-framed guy who stands 6’1″ and weighed 310 pounds when I started this plan. That was about 110 lbs overweight as my ideal weight is about 200 pounds (it’s been a long time since I’ve been there so I’ll let you know for sure when I get there).

    This book was recommended to me by a life coach I was seeing. I purchased the 10-Day Detox Diet, read it thoroughly and loved the sound science and principles behind the ideas. Following the plans in the book, I prepped my refrigerator and pantry, purchased vitamin supplements and fiber pills, tapered back on Dove dark chocolates (my main addictive habit), picked the day I would start and jumped in.

    I haven’t felt hungry since.

    Good things that have happened in the first 50 days: I lost 30 pounds and 1.5 inches off my neck and 3 inches off my waist (just a representative sample; I slimmed down in other places on my body as well). My cravings for fatty foods and sugar disappeared. I’m sleeping better, some nagging inflammation in my knees cleared up and my digestive elimination challenges cleared up. My patience increased for handling both my interpersonal relationships and life’s little problems. I have more energy for work and throughout the day. My overall feeling of health improved greatly. I feel like, after all the efforts I have made to lose weight over the years and after all the ups and downs my weight has been through, I’ve finally found the right set of intellectual tools to approach eating. Feeling this good is motivation enough to keep me eating healthy for the rest of my life.

    After about 20 days on the plan I also went back to Amazon and purchased Dr. Hyman’s Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook to expand my access to additional recipes. Once I got the hang of how Dr. Hyman combines the ingredients for dishes and meals, I started experimenting with carefully modifying some recipes to tweak them for my own particular culinary preferences. If you use good common sense it’s easy to mix and match ingredients and spices to tailor dishes and meals to your liking. I enjoy cooking and like to experiment in the kitchen. Your mileage may vary and the provided recipes are just fine the way they are presented. I’ll keep doing this as long as my weight loss continues apace and my overall feeling of health stays strong. If I go too far afield, I’ll just move back closer to the original recipes.

    The real trick now is making sure I eat healthy over the long term. I already passed my first big test: a long overdue vacation at an ocean-side resort with lots of social interaction and eating out at restaurants. During the short trip I managed to lose 5 lbs instead of gaining weight as I likely would have in the past. Once again, I feel like I have the tools I need in Dr. Hyman’s program to handle all situations.

    Side note: I did a sleep study three months ago and was diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea. Many overweight people who snore loudly like me have sleep apnea and don’t know it. Since I was tested, and prior to starting the 10-Day Detox diet, I started on a CPAP machine and have been diligent about using it so I credit this with also helping me to have the energy to face up to my dietary challenges. I think it would have been much more difficult to lose weight without also dealing with this condition first.

    I believe good health is a combination of restful sleep, breathing fresh air, drinking lots of fresh water, eating healthy food of high quality, mitigating stress and exercising regularly. I feel I have the other items in order and now I will tackle the stress and regular exercise portions.

    Best of luck on your particular journey toward health. The 10-Day Detox Diet continues to work well for me, perhaps it will work for you too. Highly recommended.

    Update July 2014: In the first 100 days I have lost 44 lbs and feel great. I’m sticking with the principles laid out in Dr. Hyman’s books as they are working well for me.

    Update September 2014: I hit my halfway point and I’m now down 55 lbs. This feels great as I’ve struggled with my weight most of my adult life. Best of all, others around me have taken inspiration. One person I know has lost over 40 pounds in the last three months just by utilizing information from Dr. Hyman’s books that we talked about and is now at his ultimate goal weight and is very trim! I’ll get there too. The key for me is that I don’t feel deprived. I eat plenty of good food but now just the food that is good for me. The rate…

    Easy Program to turn into a Lifestyle!, February 3, 2017

    This review is from: The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet: Activate Your Body’s Natural Ability to Burn Fat and Lose Weight Fast (Hardcover)

    First things first, the results after 10-days. I’ve lost a total of 7.75” and 8 lbs. Whoooohooo!

    Start each day with a Smoothie (there are several choices). Dr. H recommends drinking water with PGX prior to all meals but I add it to my smoothie instead of drinking it separately because I find that drinking ‘globby’ water disgusting (mouth feel). I don’t add the PGX to my other meals because I find they all hold me over well. For lunch, salad with protein, dinner is veggies and protein. And yes, there are snacks of nuts and veggies with dips. Essentially, you are cutting out simple carbs and sugars (bread, pasta, starchy veggies, dairy, caffeine and alcohol). Also, he gives two options of meal that is simple and one that requires more cooking. I find that preparation = success so I shopped on Sunday, prepped several meals (especially the shakes!) and started on Monday (I’ve become addicted to Mason Jar meals!). Following the 10-days there are options on how to proceed to lose more, check gluten/dairy sensitivities and how to make this a lifestyle.

    I found the program easy to stick with. When I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s (Thyroid disease) I had several Clients who also have it explain the benefits of kicking Gluten to feel better. I had done it before and I felt great..MORE energy for sure! This was a great kickstart to get me back into that lifestyle. I guess the only reason I didn’t stick with it is because I had a lot of stressful life changes (all for the positive, but stressful nonetheless) and reached for things that comforted me..of course, one of those things was food! Usually I breeze through Detoxes and this time, I really just wanted a glass of wine! For MY sake, I didn’t give in and turned to my To Do List. And like any ‘craving’, it passed. You have to do this with the mindset that YOU are in CONTROL and you CAN do this! You WILL do this! YOU decide every day whether you will succeed or fail with this detox (or any program) and let me tell you, it’s SO easy to succeed! You just have to be ready (that’s the important part).

    Personally, I have found that making a list of things to do to keep you busy during times of stress or cravings during this program to be helpful. I walked/played with my dogs, guided medatations (thanks to youtube!), pulled out a couple books I’ve wanted to read (get lost in), set up a workout routine. I also turned to Bach Remedies to ease stress/cravings and it was SO helpful! Finally, I tackled my ‘Spring Cleaning’..why wait?! So, not only did I lose weight, I also have an extremely clean & organized pantry, office, linen closet, bathroom, bedroom, etc.!

    Finally, don’t forget to set up some kind of a reward for yourself (besides feeling better) whether it’s a facial, massage, mani/pedi, etc. keep your eye on the prize! And remember, if you cheat, your only cheating yourself! Keep can do it!

    Sidenote: I didn’t give up Caffeine (I use the 1/2 caf Nespresso pods). The last time I gave up caffeine I had almost debilitating headaches and I need to be able to engage with my Clients without wanting to scream!
