Fans of Hyman’s best-selling The Blood Sugar Solution (2012) will undoubtedly want to read his lose-weight-faster sequel. A medical doctor on the advisory board of The Dr. Oz Show, Hyman sensibly encourages readers to avoid processed foods right through a 10-day detox. And he makes a strong case for eliminating sodas from the food stamp program, lobbying Congress to tax soda and sugar-sweetened beverages, and asking local stores to stock healthier items. He also provides many healthy, tasty-sounding, if time-consuming recipes, complete with calorie, fat, fiber, carbohydrate, protein, and cholesterol counts. But Hyman, now chairman of the Institute for Functional Medicine, may lose mainstream Americans with some of his advice. For example, he asks detox followers to surrender dairy (which he says “causes inflammation, allergies, congestion, postnasal drip, sinus problems, eczema, asthma, acne,” and even “weight gain by spiking insulin levels”) and to turn to herbal laxatives, supplements such as magnesium citrate, and suppositories or enemas if they need help with “easy elimination.” Not for skeptics of alternative medicine. –Karen Springen
