In his book 18 Minutes: Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done, Peter Bregman suggests focusing on the one biggest issue to control your weight. For some people, this works brilliantly. If you aren't one of them, Dr. Mark Hyman uses a different premise:
MYTH #7: IF YOU MAKE SMALL CHANGES IN YOUR LIFESTYLE, YOU WILL LOSE WEIGHT.
Don't be fooled by the title. The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet: Activate Your Body's Natural Ability to Burn Fat and Lose Weight Fast is about making massive changes to your lifestyle to get massive results. The program includes diet, exercise, psychology, support, and journaling. It introduces vitamins, supplements, routines and a detox bath. It steps you through 10 days, day by day, then encourages you to commit to 90 more before continuing with a modified program for life.
During the process there are no sugar, dairy, glutens or processed food. Some of these can be reintroduced later if the aren't a problem.
The book itself is well researched and well written. It takes you through its ten day program day by day, then sets you on a long term path for lasting health.
By design, this book is intended to disrupt your life and shake up your habits. If you aren't ready to do that, this may not be the book you need. If you are, it can help you change your life.
