The Calorie Myth
Most of us have been taught that calories in, minus calories out, equals weight loss. As we found in The Calorie Myth, that’s just not the case. It’s actually our hormones that keep us thin and if we aren’t thin, something needs attention.
Natural Weight Loss
That’s where the book UltraMetabolism comes into play. It’s a power tool for finding and correcting what needs attention to get our metabolism into “ultra” mode.
Take the Tests to Discover What’s Causing Weight Gain
There are seven basic areas that can cause our metabolism to be anything but “ultra”:
- Cellular “rust”
- Metabolic engine
Then Fix It!
After you take the seven tests included in the book to determine what isn’t functioning at optimum performance, author Mark Hyman offers suggestions for getting those areas back into shape. No matter if it’s a mild condition or extreme one, all the bases are covered to give you the tools you need to get your metabolism, and your weight, back on track.
When I took the test in February I had a minor stress problem and medium problems with both thyroid and mitochondria (metabolic engine). Exercising fixed the mitochondria issue and my hair started growing again after taking a hiatus several years ago. I’m not kidding, it hadn’t grown for three years or more.
The thyroid issue has been harder to fix. I’ve taken the suggested supplements but haven’t done a detox (another recommendation for the thyroid) that did the job. My next step is the detox diet in Mark Hyman’s follow-up book, The Ultrasimple Diet. That sounds like a powerhouse detox. It’s a one-week diet and he states people lose 10 pounds of toxic water weight during that week.
If Oprah only knew!
Quick, someone tell her. I saw the cover of her magazine years ago and she was quoted as saying something like, “How did I let this happen to me again?” Who knows, but if she took the seven tests in this book, she would know and could make sure it really DOESN’T happen again.
