Are trying to find a weight loss program that works? There are a multitude of weight loss products and diets available. Finding the right one can be tricky. One of the many programs available is The Ultra Simple Diet.

The Ultra Simple Diet was created by Mark Hyman, M.D., a pioneer in functional medicine, a branch of alternative medicine that claims to address the underlying causes of illnesses. The Ultra Simple Diet is based on the theory that weight problems are caused by health problems. The diet, therefore, is meant to address underlying health problems such as toxicity and inflammation. It does this through a strict diet, dietary supplements, an exercise regime, and saunas.

The book, The UltraSimple Diet, is available in Mass Market Paperback. It is 244 pages and costs $7.99.

Product Features

The Ultra Simple Diet is a week-long diet that advertises up to ten pounds of weight loss in seven days. The initial advertisement of ten pounds of weight loss in a one week, however, is significantly higher than the average weight loss of five and a half pounds found in the study conducted on the diet.

The official website claims that the diet works by increasing the body’s health and freeing it to lose weight naturally. The website confesses that the diet may not work for everyone. It only guarantees that its users will feel better, not that they will lose weight.

The Ultra Simple Diet is heavily advertised, proving that it is a money-making effort, not simply doctor’s advice. As such care should be taken when researching this diet. There are a significant number of negative reviews on other websites. The most common complaints are that the book and diet are both complicated, not simple. On a more serious note, many people who tried this diet suffered from nausea or gallbladder pain.

The Ultra Simple Diet is one of many possibilities. In view of its disadvantages, it may be best to research other weight loss programs before choosing one.
