The Blood Sugar Solution Diet

by DailyHealthPost Editorial

Published in February 2012, The Blood Sugar Solution Diet by Dr. Mark Hyman continues to be one of the leading health, wellness, and diet books selling on Amazon today.

The book, which is highly recommended by countless medical professionals, public figures, and individuals who have found health through the diet, focuses on insulin as the root cause of obesity and other top causes of death and ill-health currently plaguing the United States.

The Premise

Dr. Mark Hyman’s book takes an insulin-based approach to health. The Blood Sugar Solution Diet suggests that by controlling insulin and blood sugar levels, people can protect themselves from an onslaught of obesity-related diseases – which Dr. Hyman calls “diabesity” – such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, and dementia.


The Blood Sugar Solution Diet proposes a six-week healthy eating and living program, which tackles insulin resistance and high blood sugar with a seven-pronged approach. Dr. Mark Hyman’s six-week program, as outlined in the book, seeks to:

  • Improve nutrition
  • Regulate hormone levels
  • Cut down on inflammation
  • Improve digestion
  • Detox the body
  • Speed up metabolism
  • De-stress the mind

By following Dr. Hyman’s plan for diet, exercise, sleep, and overall healthy living, readers can dramatically cut down their risk of developing type II diabetes and related health issues, and even reverse some of the effects of diabetes they may already have while getting blood sugar levels under control.
