    I CAN THINK CLEARLY AGAIN!!!

    I recently left an extremely stressful job. I was so overloaded that I was losing my memory. I had brain fog and often had what I called ¿stupid days¿ or ¿stupid weeks¿ where my brain just wouldn¿t function. Also, my mother has the genetic form of Alzheimer¿s. Since this affects women more, I needed to do what I could now to try to prevent it. Dr. Hyman gave me answers to the questions I had with this book. <BR/><BR/>Before I started the six-week program, I wasn¿t exercising and had gotten away from eating the way I should. I commute a long way to work, leaving the house very early. I put in a busy day, and then have a long drive home. By the time I get home, exercise and cooking a good meal have been far from anything I could or would do. Interval training is great because in a short period of time I can get the good metabolism-boosting exercise I need. I¿ve been able to find quick and easy recipes to fix that help me follow the program and that satisfy my husband, who is not on this program, plus I can eat at most restaurants without problem. After four weeks, I found I¿d lost 10 pounds! I feel better and more importantly, I think better! I have more energy and I get more refreshing sleep! <BR/><BR/>I¿ve read all of Dr. Hyman¿s books and wondered if this book might repeat information. It doesn¿t! If you have issues with brain fog and excess stress and need to do some things now to be healthier later, read this book, follow the program, and you¿ll find that you too can be renewed and revitalized!!!

    How I got my focus back

    A little over a year ago I had my second child. I focused on eating healthy while I was at home for the first three months, and I was quite successful, but when I returned to work full time I felt to busy to continue my healthy lifestyle. For lunch I would eat packaged, frozen entrees or even worse go to our hospital cafeteria and have grilled cheese sandwich with french fries and a soda, this was happening three to four times a week. On my way home, I would stop by the store and pick up dinner that was already prepared or food that was pre-packaged so all I had to do was heat it up. This was no way to teach my kids healthy eating. I have a petite frame and was not overweight by any means but I could tell I was slowly getting thicker around the middle, in addition, I constantly felt tired, unfocused, and distracted. Every time I ate I felt sick, almost like a feeling of being hung-over but without drinking. I decided it was time to change how I, and my family, ate. I have heard of the healing power of food and I decided it was time to try the benefits of whole, unprocessed foods.<BR/><BR/>Upon starting this program, I decided I had to commit myself wholly. I began by doing all my grocery shopping in Sundays as well as cutting up all my fruits and vegetable so they were easily accessible. I also planned out my breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus in writing for the entire week and stuck to them. I will admit the first week was hard; giving up sugar and my biggest food obsession ¿ soda. After the first week it became easier and easier. As the program continued, my mind felt clearer; I felt sharper at work. The fog that inhabited my brain was lifting and I started to realize that I had been going through daily motions without motivation or care for what I was doing; now I take on challenges because I enjoy thinking through the problems. I also began to feel more energized, more so than I had in a long time, I could finally make it through the entire day without complaining I was tired; I wake up at 4:30 in the morning to exercise before getting ready for work and I don¿t get to bed until my kids are finally asleep around 9:30 pm. I have the liveliness now to work, be a wife, and play with my kids every day.<BR/><BR/>There were definitely added benefits to following Dr. Hyman¿s six-week program. By eating food that was promoted in book and avoiding the foods that contribute to brain fog, inflammation, and, for me, the overall feeling of frustration, I lost body fat, my clothes fit much better, and I am down to my goal weight/size that I have been trying to achieve for years. When you eat whole, unprocessed foods, your weight is naturally controlled; no need to count calories. Additionally, within the first few weeks my skin looked brighter, I now feel comfortable leaving the house without make-up and my skin is much healthier. I feel Dr. Hyman¿s programs and books are well worth the time and commitment, I would recommend it to anyone who is trying to bring focus and clarity back into their life. You feel so good about yourself that I think it will be difficult to go back to old eating habits. I look forward to my future of a healthy body and brain, both inside and out.

    Could not access the on-line guide that CD kept referring to. Never received the emailed password nor a response to my email requesting it.

    Hyman has a good motivating voice and provides good information to understanding how chemicals/food/medications effect our mental and physical health. I continue to be extremely frustrated that I can not access the on-line guide. I ordered and paid for the CD, it arrived, I began listening to it and it says to use the guide throughout the CD. Well they did not send me access and after requesting it again, I still do not have access and it's been several weeks! The on-line access code should be included w/ the CD!
