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.

    Sorry, but I am a bit skeptical about all weight loss systems and workouts.

    In my opinion, key is in the Lifestyle.

    It cannot be fixed by any system.

    Probably starts with proper work conditions: less stress, more natural activities, no rush in the morning.

    Once it is set – pay attention to how you rest.

    Then food plays a role: just try not to overeat, eliminate processed food, learn to cook and enjoy your kitchen.

    The last is how you eat: no TV, artful catering, nice talk at the table.

    All above will keep you healthy and happy..

    If you can put this into practice, you WILL see results. To get any great result with your weight loss, you do need to do work and this is a helpful tool in that area. It opens your eyes to ways to lift your metabolism that you may not have thought of before or known about – but now that you do, you can start to change. While it’s ultimately aiming at a ‘diet’ it’s focusing on raising your metabolism which helps you burn calories at a high rate – so not only will you loose weight from eating the right foods etc, but the weight lose will happen faster and in a more healthy way because your metabolism is now boosted and is working for you even when you are resting. Not that I have much to loose, but I’ve tried this now for one week and have noticed a big difference not only in my physical appearance but in my day to day health (with a weight loss of 8lbs already). I’m not as reliant on Coca Cola to give me my caffiene fix and I’m sleeping better at night.

    Losing weight can be a difficult task for anyone even if you just want to lose a few pounds. There are many fad diets that can help you drop a dress size in 30 days but they are often unhealthy. The best way to lose weight in a short time is to develop goals and stick to them.

    I find it odd that overweight people keep looking for the weight loss solution. STOP EATING JUNK and EXERCISE that’s it! No surprise here but its true and works. Problem is working out and eating right takes time and most people are over booked as it is. If your not willing to put forth the effort then save your time and money. Reading a book isn’t going to shed those pounds.

    A weight loss book needs to cover the lifestyle, fads and myths. This book did that well.

    To gain weight is quite easy for most people, losing weight is so complicated, i know a lot of people who are losing weight but in the same month they double their lost weight again. I really want to read this book, and I do think that losing weight is in your head. When you think you can, you can…

    I would of said that these types of diet supplements do not work years ago but after witnessing my friends lose weight with these type of new supplements, I have to say that they really work. It is seriously amazing how these supplements help you lose weight.

    This sounds like it will help me make – and keep – reasonable weight maintenance habits. I’m going to get it for Christmas.
