Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743272552, Hardcover)For many, losing weight is a never-ending struggle -- especially since our bodies are designed to keep weight on at all costs; it's a matter of survival. But a medical revolution is under way, showing us how to work with our bodies instead of against them to ignite the natural fat-burning furnaces that lie dormant within us. Drawing on the cutting-edge science of nutrigenomics -- how food talks to our genes -- Dr. Mark Hyman has created a way of losing weight by eating the right foods, which in turn sends the right messages to our bodies.
In this easy-to-follow eight-week plan based on each individual's unique genetic needs, Dr. Hyman explains how to customize your personal weight-loss program with menus, recipes, shopping lists, and recommendations for supplements and exercise. Ultimately, you will rebalance and stabilize your metabolism -- an UltraMetabolism -- to maintain weight loss and enjoy lifelong health.

The human diet has changed dramatically over the past ten thousand years, but our genetic blueprint has not--our bodies are not designed to process the types of food we are fed today. Diets don't work either: less than 6 percent of weight-loss attempts succeed. This book presents nutrigenomics, the science of how food talks to our genes, which shows how the forces that keep weight on can actually be reprogrammed to burn fat and keep weight off for good. By learning how to work with our bodies instead of against them, we can ignite the natural fat-burning furnaces that lie dormant within us. The result is an eight-week plan customized to help you lose weight based on your own unique genetic needs.--From publisher description.
