The Blood Sugar Solution- 10 Day Detox Diet

The-Blood-Sugar-Solution-10-Day-Detox-Diet-Cookbook-241x300Have you tried every diet out there to no avail — only to lose weight and then gain it right back? The 10-Day Detox, The Blood Sugar Solution Diet allows you to eat real food all while rebooting your bodies natural ability to heal, lose weight and lower inflammation.

Our bodies are actually quite amazing and if we heed to their knowledge we can live a very healthy life.

There is no need to be overweight, depressed, diabetic and suffering from high blood pressure, and yet most of the North American population is just that.

Did you know that what usually makes us fat also makes us sick — and what makes us sick, makes us fat?

Even those of us who look skinny can be fat on the inside with high blood sugar, chronic inflammation and low good cholesterol. So just because you look thin on the outside doesn’t mean you are healthy on the inside.

Americans consume on average 250 pounds of sugar a year, most of that from high fructose corn syrup which in large amounts is toxic to our systems, in turn causing many chronic illnesses like diabetes, arthritis and heart disease. Health care costs are soaring due to chronic illness and yet there is a solution right in front of us. By simply changing our diet, we can change our world.

Why not activate your body’s own natural ability to burn fat, lose weight fast and heal your whole body, from the inside out— here’s how you can.

In Dr. Hyman’s new book The Blood Sugar Solution 10 – Day Detox Diet he explains how to turn on our body’s fat burning machine, which in turn helps our body to detoxify through healthy eating.

His step by step plans make this Detox Diet so easy to follow that anyone can do it.

Here’s an example of what you can eat during your 10 days

Breakfast- Strawberry Smoothie, Scrambled Eggs,

Lunch- Super Salad, Shrimp and Snow Pea Salad

Snacks-Nuts, Seeds, Vegetables, Avocado with Creamy Tahini Dip

Dinner- Roasted Salmon with Asparagus and Mushroom Saute

Snack- Chocolate Smoothie

Dr Hyman provides eight great questions that by the simple task of answering them in your journal will enable you to learn a lot about your thoughts. Remember, ‘Energy Flows Where Attention Goes!’

5)      Daily Relaxation Exercises- learning to relax without the TV, radio or your cell phone beside you is key in losing weight, yes stress makes you fat and relaxation makes you thin- It can be as simple as a five minute relaxation exercise where you simply concentrate on your breath or repeat a calming phrase or word- try it, it might just save your life.relax

  1. Day 1 of the detox. The morning smoothie was great! Feeling good. My pantry has never looked better. Used mason jars to store all of my nuts, chia, hemp etc. Very easy to access and I can monitor when I need to go shopping much easier then before.

  2. Way to go Helen, glad your smoothie was great and good for you for taking the time to clean out your pantry. I love the idea of using mason jars for nuts seeds!!

  3. Day 2 of the detox. Feeling pretty good this morning. Yesterday was amazing. Worked a 12 hour day and had amazing energy. Went for a 30 minute walk at lunch (I never do this)! Had a dinner meeting from 4-6pm. Pizza and salad served. Had an egg and 1/2 an avocado before the meeting. I felt full and had no desire for the pizza! I usually feel sluggish on the ride home from work but not yesterday. Came home and played tennis. Walked the dog after tennis. Drank loads of water throughout the day with lemon. I think this really helped.

  4. This is great Helen, I am glad you are seeing such a shift in your energy, your mood and how you feel by changing what you eat, relaxing, taking a walk on your lunch hour, such great things to add into your day- Keep it up!

  5. To think, I was cofensud a minute ago.

  6. Seguro que no soy el único a quien el comentario de zroot le ha recordado el chiste aquel del tipo que oyó por la radio que habían avistado un coche conduciendo en sentido contrario por la autopista y exclamó “¿Uno solo? ¡Si son todos!”

  7. Gavinous PrimeYour dad sounds like such a brave man to push for so many important changes in Iran and Thailand at the University. I hope that he does get to see some improvements in Iran. It must be so frustrating hear bad news over and over again from your home country.At least you had some tasty sashimi!

  8. ok those cookies look *perfect*I’ve heard of “lunch lady” cookies before but I swear, they weren’t PB cookies…I need to investigate those.And that cinn/sugar grinder. Ive had that in my hands MANY times over the years but have never bought it. What have I been waiting for!
