Anyone read this book yet - "The UltraSimple Diet: Kick-Start Your Metabolism and Safely Lose Up to 10 Pounds in 7 Days" by Mark Hyman?(Mark is the author of "Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss", which I like). He also wrote "Ultraprevention: The 6-Week Plan That Will Make You Healthy for Life".
The "UltraSimple Diet" was just made available on Amazon on March 27, 2007 (paper back book). Looks like the UltraSimple Diet is just for the one week to rev up one's metabolism.
"By eliminating the major sources of toxins in your life -- addictive habits such as coffee, sugar, alcohol, processed food, fast food, junk food, trans fats, and high-fructose corn syrup -- and reducing toxic stress for only 7 days, your body can renew and rejuvenate itself.
By eliminating the major sources of inflammation in your diet -- food allergens, sugar and flour products, and bad fats -- your body can heal.
Then, by eating whole, detoxifying, anti-inflammatory foods, the power of the program can take full effect.
Let me be completely honest here
My motivation is not to help you "lose a quick 10 pounds," although that is a nice side effect. My desire is for you to experience in one week the power you have to harm or to heal your body, the power wrong foods have to create sickness, and the power right foods have to promote weight loss and health.
The problem that many people ran into was that they thought 8 weeks was too long a commitment and never gave the program a chance. In reality it's not; however, as a consequence of receiving that feedback, I designed this program to be only 7 days (which anybody can do) to prove just how good you can actually feel once you have addressed the core problems of toxicity and inflammation."
