Dr. Mark Hyman is the author of the book Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss, developed from the concept of nutrigenomics – the science of how food is ‘information’ that communicates with our genes. Learn to work with, instead of against, your body, and use the natural fat burners within. Eating the right foods communicates weight loss and health; eating the wrong foods communicates weight gain and disease.
Ultrametabolism explains how to prevent disease, prolong life and make dieting obsolete, with no calorie counting, no talk of ‘carbs’ or other fads, based on science tailored to an easy-to-follow, customizable program for automatic weight loss and good health, regardless of your age.
Dr. Hyman’s Ultrametabolism plan, developed from 10 years of hands-on experience at a health resort, contains seven keys to weight loss: controlling appetite and metabolism, reducing stress, managing inflammation, preventing cellular “rust,” turbo charging your metabolism, ensuring optimal thyroid function and detoxifying your liver. These derive from Ultrametabolism’s general principles:

Sauté over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through. Serve the fish and vegetables with a baked sweet potato.
