On the heels of his #1 bestseller The Blood Sugar Solution, renowned physician, health advocate and author Dr. Mark Hyman offers a companion cookbook The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook, featuring more than 175 recipes for total health and weight loss.
Over 50 percent of meals in America are eaten outside the home, where highly processed, high-fat, high-sugar, low-fiber foods are consumed in abundance. The major culprit of diabetes, obesity and heart disease is insulin imbalance, and it has emerged as a major crisis in American families.
Today, one in two Americans has either pre-diabetes or diabetes. In less than a decade, the rate of pre-diabetes or diabetes in teenagers has risen from 9 percent to 23 percent. That means almost one in four kids has pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes.
Shocking, yet perhaps even more so, 37 percent of kids at a normal weight have one or more cardiovascular risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol or high blood sugar, because even though factory food doesn't make you fat, it does make you sick.
In The Blood Sugar Solution, Dr. Hyman revealed the root causes of chronic disease, the secret to losing weight and a roadmap for preventing diabesity and getting healthy. In The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook, Dr. Hyman begins by showing readers how to take an assessment of their own health status and how to prepare their kitchen to follow The Blood Sugar Solution six-week program, and he presents the principles for eating healthy for life.
Following are 175 original, wholesome and delicious recipes from Dr. Hyman's own collection as well as from his community of chefs that are free of allergens and harmful inflammatory ingredients. Readers can exchange toxic factory-made foods for nutritious, easy to make dishes (including dessert!) that showcase a variety of cuisines.
Dr. Hyman believes the cure for what ails us can be found in the kitchen.
