The wait is over! In “The 10-Day Detox Diet," Dr. Hyman offers a very detailed, yet realistic plan to kick your addiction to sugar, artificial sweeteners and other harmful foods and get on the path to the weight loss and better health. I have been a novice when it comes to losing weight and eating healthier until I read another great book called “The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution.” I first learned about here on Barnes and Nobles from other reviews and gave it a try because I wasn’t just looking to lose weight temporarily. “The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution” was promising a life style change and it delivered that and then some.
Since then, I have been on a quest to improve my overall eating habits. “The 10-Day Detox Diet," begins with a solid description of the science behind addictive eating, and an explanation of how sugar, in particular, causes weight gain. If you haven't read Dr. Hyman's previous book, you can probably get away with just reading the summary in this book. I recently saw his special on my local PBS channel. It is a free public broadcast and the program was quite informative. It pushed me to want to read this book.
In this book, Dr. Hyman provides a general approach is to completely eliminate harmful foods, including: anything containing sugar, gluten and all grains, all dairy (milk) products, beans or legumes, processed or refined foods or oils, alcohol, caffeine, any other non-prescribed stimulants of sedatives.  For some people, this might be a struggle because of our addiction to these foods, but given a chance, this book might prove to be very useful. 
Overall, I’d recommend that you buy it. For me, it has been a wave of information. But, I would suggest that you read the sample and see for yourself before you buy it.  Also, take a minute to read the sample of “The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution.” I’d wholeheartedly recommend that you buy both books if you can.  As one review said, buy one book and get the other from your local library. Anything that works! By the way, good luck.

Don't bother with this book. Basically he says not to eat grains, sweeteners, including artificial ones, or dairy. There are just a few diet menus. They mainly consist of a non-dairy vegetable smoothie for breakfast and chicken or fish with more vegetables for lunch ...

They mainly consist of a non-dairy vegetable smoothie for breakfast and chicken or fish with more vegetables for lunch and dinner. He does go into a lot of detail about sugar and insulin resistance, which may be interesting to some readers. And he says to avoid dairy because some people have unrecognized food allergies.

    I was very excited to try this plan. Day 2 I had to have sugar.

    I was very excited to try this plan. Day 2 I had to have sugar. My non fasting glucose was 68. I'm not a diabetic. While this book may work for some, it certainly did not for me. I was commited having bought all the supplements. Well my body was unable to absorb them and broke out in a rash. It's unclear in the book to know how large your portions should be based on your size. I'm female 5'6" around 143 pounds. I'm no whimp having lost over 100 pounds on Weight Watchers keeping it off over several years and was just looking to take off the 10+ pounds I've put on recently. I'd say if you're going to buy the book, make sure you don't pay the $28 like I did. It's just not worth it.

    Waste of time.....rating should be 1/4 star.

    Blah, blah, blah. Words, words, words. Not the least bit interesting. Never again buy a Mark Hyman, MD book. Waste of money.
