Review: Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss

Ultrametabolism by Dr. Mark Hyman

Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss” by Dr. Mark Hyman

If you are looking for the complete package on losing weight in a healthy manner, this is a book you should definitely check out. It is much more complete than the average diet book. In fact it’s more of a healthy living book. I like books that explain the science behind why things work. This book does just that. The writing is flows very fast probably because he makes the subject so interesting.

Ultrametabolism” is written by Dr. Mark Hyman, who was featured recently on 60 minutes for his volunteer medical work he is doing in Haiti since the earthquake. He has many other books and audiobooks on health, stress, and the mind.

Ultrametabolism is divided into three sections:

Part 1: The 7 Myths That Make You Gain Weight

Here Dr. Hyman reveals all the false beliefs we have about weight loss with solid scientific evidence. It will have you saying “Aha, well that makes sense now.” Things such as “The Starvation Myth,” “All Calories are Equal Myth,” “The (Eating)Fat makes you Fat Myth,” and more are brought into the light for examination.

Part 2: The 7 Keys to the New Science of Weight Loss: The Owner’s Manual for Your Body

In this section Dr. Hyman describes how to increase your metabolism, control your appetite, subdue stress, reduce inflammation, use exercise for boosting metabolic power, and how to detoxify your body.  Again this section is extremely interesting, highly readable, and way more valuable than the price of the book. He teaches you how to live your life to have the healthiest body possible. A healthy weight is a natural by-product of this.

Part 3: The Ultrametabolism Prescription

This is where the instructions of how to implement this information are detailed out for you. Many topics are covered: whole-foods recipes, setting up your kitchen for success, how to avoid common pitfalls along the way, which supplements are good and why, details on detoxification, and more.

There are several appendices, resource lists, and conclusions at the end. And if you are looking for more there is also a corresponding cookbook: “The UltraMetabolism Cookbook: 200 Delicious Recipes that Will Turn on Your Fat-Burning DNA.”

The Bottom Line

These days I read so many books that I always check them out from the library first. The ones that I love and that are truly valuable I buy them. “Ultrametabolism“is one I am buying. I think reading it once a year is probably a good review.

    Sounds like a great lifestyle book. I designed some programs based around much of the same for women over 40 who were looking for a lifestyle instead of a crash diet.

    Id be interested to see how the two would compare.

    Thanks for sharing.

    This book sounds like it may be a very good read! One of the main things people lose sight of is a diet is not about depriving yourself or feeding yourself all kinds of diet pills. This in fact only does more damage than good. A good diet is a lifestyle change and something that overtime will not feel like a diet at all once you get used to it. It is all of this starving ourselves and over the counter supplements that is causing everyone to mess up their metabolism, burn out and later gain more weight than what they started with. You must eat to lose weight and eat often, just learn how to eat the right things. Good Luck!

    People eat too much or fattening foods because of a need to fill a gap somewhere. It feels good. It is nurturing. It’s a companion. Usually dieting creates a slower metabolism, and there is even less weight loss.
    Yes, exercise and “right” foods are part of the formula, but unless the reasons for eating out of balance are released, the resistaance will remain and the weight will never stay off.

    I was recently diagnosed as lactose intolerant and a sufferer of Coeliac disease, which means I can’t consume anything containing milk, wheat or gluten. Some people see this as a total restriction on life but I see it as an absolute godsend because I know that I can’t eat fast food and calorie-laden foods, such as cheese, so I don’t! This has absolutely helped me to get over my cravings and stay on track with healthy eating.
