Nothing groundbreaking here from my perspective. Decently written but no pictures even though the second half of the cookbook is recipes. Most of the recipes rely heavily on soy products, which I try to limit in my diet.

If you are thinking about starting the Ultrametabolism program (the one with the 3 weeks of detox), please buy this cookbook first! You will definitely thank me for suggesting it, otherwise you'll soon tire of the limited number of recipes that are in the orange UM book. There are a lot of good recipes in here.

Love these recipes. Best veggie recipes I have ever seen. Try Chopped Broccoli with Olives and Slivered Brussels Sprouts with Shiitake Mushrooms.

*The "how to" following the "why to"*

A great complement to his _UltraMetabolism_ book, Mark Hyman's recipe book contains 200 ultra-delicious ways to put the UltraMetabolism approach into practice. The first part of the book highlights the essentials of the UltraMetabolism approach (i.e., the "why to"), and the rest of the book contains recipes that integrate this approach (i.e., the "how to") with an incredibly do-able plan. The recipes are simple--even the ones that require more prep time--and

Excellent cookbook (although wish there were more pictures, I love cookbooks with pictures, this one has a few). All the recipes I've tried so far have turned out very well and a few are now on my regular rotation.

All the recipes are designed to promote health, which is important to me.

My only quibble with this book is that, as a vegetarian, I wish it had more vegetarian recipes and fewer meat recipes; and a few recipes are marked as "vegetarian" but have fish in them.

Definitely recommend for

I borrowed this book from the library first, then I had to buy a copy bc I missed the recipes so much. This book is great for making healthy foods that are family friendly. Lots of recipes with fresh herbs. I stuck to the phase 1 stuff as I was on a pretty restrictive allergy diet. The guacamole is to die for. Yummy!

This book presents a summary of Dr. Hyman's Ultrametabolism and also includes a lot of tasty-looking recipes to help you follow his advice. I read three books by Dr. Hyman this week (Ultrametabolism and The Ultra Mind Solution as well as this one), but this cookbook is really the only one I needed. It presents most of the information much more succinctly.

It's so great that there are doctors like Mark Hyman who are totally dedicated to the idea of nutritional cleansing, who explain why it works, and then give us recipes to boot! I love this book, and the recipes are delicious!

The recipes have almost no flavor. Many of these recipes appear elsewhere or in slightly altered versions in his Hyman's other books.

Interesting, but a little too high-maintenance for me. Nothing jumped out at me and said, "Yummy!", so I know I would not be able to stick with it.

Love Dr. Hyman's philosophy on health and picked up this book. Found some interesting and delicious recipes to update my recipe stash.

Many great recipes - not a vegan cookbook, but many great vegan recipes - to support Dr. Hyman's UltraSimple and UltraMetabolism plans.
