Ultrawellness Introduces Groundbreaking Weight Loss Program: Eat Carbs to Lose Weight and Boost Health

Obesity in the U.S. has almost tripled since the 1960s. Contrary to popular belief, according to Mark Hyman, M.D., one of the country’s foremost practitioners in a new groundbreaking field called functional medicine, eating carbohydrates may be the single most important thing people can do to for quick weight loss and improved health.

By simply adding foods that nourish and eliminating bad foods that poison, the body's natural intelligence takes over. As a pioneer in treatments that apply the natural power and interaction of bodily systems, Dr. Hyman believes the same things that make people sick also make them fat. After years of applying the latest scientific research on health and weight loss, Dr. Hyman’s findings address the two most important underlying causes of disease and obesity: toxicity and inflammation. Being overweight is actually a symptom of these underlying health problems and lead to chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, dementia and diabetes.

A scientifically grounded accelerated weight loss and health improvement plan, Dr. Hyman’s new book, The UltraSimple Diet, is a seven day program that, unlike other diets, is simple to do. Eating plenty of nourishing foods for seven days eliminates toxins and cools inflammation. This, in turn, kick-starts the metabolism and then the body takes care of things automatically. Dieters are no longer plagued with counting calories, fat grams or carbs. By focusing on detox and reducing inflammation, it is possible to revitalize health and to safely lose up to ten pounds in only seven days.

Nutritious vegetables and fruits, which many people forget are carbohydrates, contain powerful phytonutrients – natural chemical compounds found in plants -- that provide extraordinary health benefits and act as a detox diet to help eliminate toxins and cool inflammation. Simply choose nutrient-dense, plant-based whole foods that are full of fiber, anti-inflammatory, sugar-balancing, detoxifying and quick and easy to prepare. In addition to healthy weight loss, followers of The UltraSimple Diet can expect to experience increased energy, fewer aches and pains, improved digestion, better mood and sleep, clearer skin and greater mental clarity.

The UltraSimple Diet is available in a $7.99 paperback that includes daily plans including shopping and check lists.
