A 10-Day Super Nutritional Makeover To Detox, Eliminate Food Addictions, and Lose Weight

What if you could "reset your factory settings," and in 10 days, get a nutritional makeover that will detox your body, eliminate food addictions (a sugar addiction would be great to lose), burn a whole lot of fat, and lose as much as 10 pounds?

In a recent appearance on the Dr. Oz TV program, Dr. Mark Hyman talked about his newest book called The 10-Day Detox Diet - the food plan designed to guide you through your nutritional makeover. 

Dr. Hyman says that food is the biggest cause AND the biggest cure of disease. He claims that this 10-day detox diet re-boots your metabolism, requires no calorie counting, and reverses FLC (feel like crap) syndrome.

For the detox plan, you will need to eliminate the following foods during the 10-day period (the following info is from doctoroz.com):
  • Processed foods unless it is a canned whole food such as sardines or artichokes with only a few real ingredients such as water or salt
  • Any food or drink that contains added sugar (including honey, molasses, agave, maple syrup, organic cane juice or artificial sweeteners), especially any sugar-sweetened beverages or fruit juices
  • Anything that contains hydrogenated oils and refined vegetable oils (like corn or soybean oil)
  • Any foods with artificial sweeteners, preservatives, additives, coloring, or dyes
  • Anything sugar or flour based (cookies, cakes, candies, etc.)
  • Grains (rice, oats, quinoa) and all foods made from flours (crackers, pasta, bread, pretzels, etc.)
  • Starches (sweet potato, potato, squash, parsnip, beets, etc.)
  • Beans and legumes (chickpeas, lentils, peanuts, kidney beans, etc.)
  • Dairy (yogurt, sour cream, cheese, milk, etc.)
  • Coffee and anything caffeinated (tea, soft drinks, lattes, etc.)
  • Alcohol (wine, beer, spirits, etc.)
You will take supplements recommended by Dr. Hyman as well as fiber before each meal.

First Impressions
Dr. Hyman bases the effectiveness of his detox diet on a trial with 600 women and his 20 years of experience as a doctor of functional medicine.

In the past, his nutritional programs have been a bit overwhelming; however, the 10-Day Detox Diet sounds manageable. The good doctor has learned to modify his approach.

I've ordered the book (The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet: Activate Your Body's Natural Ability to Burn Fat and Lose Weight Fast) and will post a full review once I read it (and tried it).
