The book does include some yummy looking recipes - though without photos. It is very wordy and not something I would personally refer to constantly for visuals (especially for a cook book). The ingredients are not common also in Asia. But still, good recommendation for a healthier diet for diabetics or even for the rest of us to eat healthily.
I received The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook: More than 175 Ultra-Tasty Recipes for Total Health and Weight Loss by Mark Hyman for free through GoodReads First Reads giveaway. I entered this giveaway because my mother is a diabetic and I saw that this is a cookbook for blood sugar. My mother was ecstatic about this book; she heard about it on TV and couldn’t wait to read it herself. This book is not just a cookbook. Before you even get to the recipes in this book it lays down the foundation to a ...more

Knowing how rampant the issue of obesity and how it affects our blood sugar, it's no wonder that today there are more diagnosed cases of Type 2 Diabetes than ever before and it's not only affecting older adults but teens and young children as well. So what can you do?

Dr. Mark Hyman offers a solution to help remedy the spikes in one's blood sugar and to aid in reducing our dependency on sugary foods in his latest book, The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook. It is the perfect companion book to accompa
I received an advance copy of "The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook" from the First Reads promotion. (Thank you!) Having not yet read "The Blood Sugar Solution," I am not sure that I can fairly evaluate the effectiveness of the 175 recipes in this book. However, I am familiar with other low-glycemic index/low-carbohydrate weight loss plans such as The South Beach Diet and I think that most of the recipes in The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook could be useful to followers of similar eating plans.

The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook is a cookbook that can be used by itself or with the The Blood Sugar Solution book by the same author. The book shows how to do a kitchen makeover (pantry and fridge) and shows through recipes and diet coaching how to cancel out disease caused by poor nutrition.

In the first chapter, Mark Hyman states:

"[The Blood Sugar Solution] provides a step-by-step, goof-proof plan to reverse the root causes of diabetes and obesity - what I call diabesity...[and] provides a r
I liked the first part of the book, but once it got to the recipes, the ingredients list made me second guess the book. Some of these ingredients I've never heard of, or have no place nearby to find them. There were probably about 5 recipes I could make right now without having to go to the store. The diet plan idea is sound, but the recipes are harder to follow. And there were only a few pictures at the end, I like to know what I'm making is supposed to look like.

I gained some really helpful recipes to add to my recipe book. While there were some meals I didn't think I'd use, there were plenty others that I could see myself incorporating into my meal planning. Dr. Hyman gives so much great health information and encouragement in this book as well.
Lots of great recipes. Really looking forward to trying out many of them - especially the soups. Only improvement was if the book had pictures with the recipes. If something is visually appealing to me, I'm more inclined to try cooking it.
Good recap of the Blood Sugar Solution. Some good easy recipes. Liked about measuring you waist to determine how healthy you are.

I've already tried some of the recipes and they were really good!

Wow, I am so glad I received this book from Goodreads. I am always looking for recipes that are suitable for my family, my husband has type 2 diabetes and we have two boys that are always active. After only having this book for two days we have already tried six recipes and eight more are planned for this week. I can't wait to try the breakfast smoothies for myself this week. If you are looking for a cookbook that is more than just a cookbook then this is for you; this one will stay on the count ...more
Not terribly enlightening
well laid out.
Ok, so I didn't READ all of it. It's a cookbook. I browsed it.

My big complaint is that there are no ingredient notes. None. Lots of these recipes call for stuff I've no idea how to find. And I'm not a some kind of food ignorant dummy. But would it be too hard to add a line of explanation on some of this stuff?

Of all the recipes in the book, it's the soups that looked most promising. Good hearty bean and vegetable soups and stews.

I won this book from the firstreads giveaway. I haven't had a chance yet to make any of the recipes, I will edit my rating when I do. But I am so excited to do so. There are some amazing recipes inside, including some things that really surprised me for a blood sugar solutions cookbook. Definitely a must pick up cookbook! Again, every excited to make so of the foods, especially the desserts!! :-)
Tried a few of the recipes and love them!The chili with quinoa is great and the energy bars are amazing. I can't wait to try more.
Excellent recipes and a great plan to help with overall health.
This looks good and we are experimenting with the recipes.
