Product Description

From the Three-Time New York Times Bestselling Author of Ultraprevention, Ultrametabolism, and The Ultrasimple Diet

In UltraMetabolism, Dr. Mark Hyman brought the new science of weight loss to the general public. By learning to work with the body instead of against it, you can ignite your natural fat-burning furnace and reprogram your body to burn fat and keep it off for good.

Simply put, eat the right foods and send instructions of weight loss and health; eat the wrong foods and send messages of weight gain and disease.

The UltraMetabolism Cookbook puts Ultra-Metabolism into overdrive with 200 convenient, easy-to-prepare, and, of course, delicious recipes for the right foods that will bring on a lifetime of good health and healthy weight.

The first part of the book reacquaints the reader with the UltraMetabolism plan and then offers a wide variety of delicious, easily prepared dishes for both Phase I -- the three-week detoxification of your system -- and Phase II, which rebalances your metabolism in four weeks and offers the way to a healthy metabolism for life!

Look your best, feel your best, perform at your best, and eat such fantastic meals as Roasted Shrimp, Turkey and Red Bean Chili, and Ratatouille. And that's just Phase I!

As you progress through the UltraMetabolism plan and enter Phase II, you'll add satisfying, flavor-packed appetizers -- Curried Deviled Eggs with Cashews, anyone? -- as well as many more new salads, meats, fish, shellfish, soups, poultry, grains, vegetables, breakfast foods, and snacks. And there are lots of plant-based options and bean dishes for vegetarians.

In addition to the clear, cutting-edge science and great recipes in The UltraMetabolism Cookbook, you'll find countless ideas of how to integrate the UltraMetabolism way of eating into your lifestyle, from quick weeknight suppers to entertaining and holiday meals.

Customer Reviews:

  • The ONLY cookbook you need!!
    I can't say enough about this cookbook! I read and followed Ultra-metabolism and had great results, so I bought the cookbook for more recipes. Honestly, I feel like I'm eating at a spa most days. Not only that, but by eating whole foods, you can eat A LOT more calorie-wise. I agree with the reviewer that said to always use fresh herbs when called for. We just planted an herb garden, so I won't have to spend money on them anymore. This book stays on my counter and I plan all my meals with it. It's not that hard....if you want to eat healthy, you have to put the time into it to PLAN PLAN PLAN. This isn't a fad diet, it's a lifestyle and I'm so happy to have found Mark Hyman's books! ...more info
  • Excellent cookbook!
    I have to say that this is the best cookbook as far as using whole foods and grains. I started on this eating program 3 weeks ago and have already lost 11 lbs. It can get time consuming cooking all your food from scratch but I have to say that I feel like I am eating like a queen. Fast food joints and quick food can not compare to the receipes in this book. It's like eating at a gourmet restaurant all the time. I feel so much better, less pain from fibromyalgia and much more energy. Truly amazing....more info
  • Life changing
    While this seemed radical, it also seemed so logical. I put myself and husband on this program and we both lost 30 pounds. Since getting off the "whites", I am no longer constantly hungry; my health has improved and I feel better. It is worth the changes to enhance and extend your life....more info
  • I do NOT recommend this cookbook
    I tried the recipes and they are tasteless. Most of the recipes have ingredients that are not often purchased and go bad before they are reused. There are not many entree recipes to choose from. It's a waste of money....more info
  • Medications Can Foil Best Weight Loss Efforts
    I am a relatively healthy and active 28 year old female who takes a Beta-Blocker (Inderal LA, 60mg 1x daily) and a Benzodiazepine (Klonopin, 1mg 1x daily) for anxiety.

    I have followed the enhanced UltraSimple Diet FAITHFULLY for the last six days with NO weight loss and NO inches lost.

    Discouraged by my results, I decided to google my drugs to see if they were the cause of my problems. I did this with the foreknowledge that some drugs will inhibit weight loss, because I spent a YEAR on Phase I of the Ultrametabolism Diet not losing weight and not understanding that it was caused by the SSRI that I was on at the time, Effexor. Once I came off of the Effexor, and after a few months, I was shedding weight at the impressive rate of 0.5 lbs per day.

    Dr. Hyman is correct in the fact that we are constantly poisioning our bodies with toxic chemicals daily. What he doesn't point out is, that sometimes toxins come disguised as pharmaceuticals.

    Lesson for all those reading: Check your medications! Read the pharmacy label, read about it on the internet. Find out if it, or the family it is in, has a history of causeing weight gain and/or weight loss. If it does, talk to your doctor about discontinuing the drug BEFORE you waste your time, energy, and money investing in the Ultra-diets.

    Below is a link, and then the article found on that link about beta blockers worsening insulin resistance as well as causing metabolic resistance to weight loss.


    Gabe Mirkin, M.D.

    Recent research shows that beta blockers and diuretics, the drugs prescribed most often for high blood pressure, cause high blood sugar levels, weight gain, tiredness and impotence.

    Most people with high blood pressure have high blood insulin levels that increase their chances of suffering heart attacks, constant hunger and weight gain. Beta blockers, such as atenolol and propranolol (Inderal LA), and diuretics such as hydrochlorothiazide, reduce the body's ability to respond to insulin, causing high blood insulin levels that increase risk for heart attacks, diabetes and weight gain. Because of this, drug companies have developed newer beta blockers such as dilevalol, carvedilol and celiprolol that do not raise insulin levels and therefore do not increase a person's chances of suffering heart attacks, diabetes and weight gain.

    Most other drugs used to treat high blood pressure, such as angiotensin converting enzyme or ACE inhibitors, have no impact on or even improve insulin resistance and help to prevent heart attacks and control diabetes. In the near future, most cases of high blood pressure will be treated with the newer beta blockers or other drugs in place of the older beta blockers and diuretics.

  • The Ultra Cookbook
    This cookbook is fantastic. Not only does it provide a well balanced meal selection, all of the recipes are delicious and fun to make. Out of all of my cookbooks this one is my favorite. I use it the most and feel really great about the meals I make for myself and my family. ...more info
  • This book is great for people with food allergies!!!
    I tried the Ultrametabolism detox diet and had great success, so it was natural for me to want the cookbook. I love it! It includes a list of allergens for each recipe and includes nutritional information. Most of the recipes are fairly basic and not too time consuming. We have like just about everything we have tried. I definitely recommend this book!...more info
  • good book.
    The food is great. It is not tateless. The other guy that wrote that should eat McDonalds maybe that trash will have enough taste for him....more info
  • Gourmet Quality!!!!
    I bought this book nearly a year ago but have just recently started using it. I have completed Dr. Hyman's six-week UltraMind program and wanted more recipes to choose from as I intend to continue this lifestyle. The recipes I've tried so far are to die for. My whole family is pleased, including my 2 very picky children. Not only are the recipes delicious, they are healthy! Yes, there is a lot of chopping and dicing but I don't mind because I know I'm eating healthy. I do have one bit of advice. Always use fresh herbs when the recipe calls for it. I can't believe the difference it makes in flavor. I feel sorry for the one-star reviewer. "Going bad" is what happens to fresh whole foods when they sit in your refrigerator unused. I'm sure she/he didn't give the recipes much attention. I on the other hand, can't recommend this cookbook enough. ...more info
  • UltraMetabolism Cookbook is great
    I read the Ultra Simple Diet paperback first, which then led me to the UltraMetabolism Cookbook. The cookbook has easy-to-follow recipes that clearly state allergens not included in the ingredients (such as gluten free, dairy free, etc.), making it easy to find a recipe that suits your needs. Every recipe I have tried has been very tasty. These recipes make is much easier to stay on track and lose stubborn belly weight....more info
  • A lifestyle change
    If you are looking for a diet book, this book isn't for you. If, however, you want to change the way you eat, feel better, and keep the weight off that you lose then buy this book.

    The first section of the book explains why preservatives and artificial food additives are bad and why eating freshly made foods can increase the metabolism. The second section is divided into two phases of recipes; the first being a month-long detoxification phase to clear out preservatives and artificial substances out of the body, and the second phase is a more broad set of recipes that is less restrictive on what you can eat.

    If you do plan to try this book, you need to be prepared to:

    1) Be able to follow recipes and cook for yourself or have some one to do so for you. No fast food or frozen dinners.
    2) Have time to cook. While some of the recipes are quick, others take quite a bit of time. I can make grilled chicken in about 15 minutes, but making soup can take nearly an hour. (I double or triple recipes and keep left-overs for time-consuming recipes.)
    3) Buy kitchen utensils and appliances. The book lists useful ones. I haven't bought the full list, but the ones I have do really help make things easier.

    Now you must be asking yourself, "If I get this book, will it really work?" In my case, I have been seriously overweight for most of my life. I have tried other diets, but none seemed to work. At my last weigh-in at my doctor's office before getting this book I was 344 lbs and wearing a size 50 jeans. After 5 months using these recipes I returned and weighed in at 279 lbs wearing a size 44 jeans (That is 65 lbs in 5 months).

    Try it, stick with it, and it will work for you. The food tastes great due to the spices, so I never have a problem wanting something I shouldn't have. I really recommend this book to anyone who needs to take off the weight and keep it off naturally....more info
  • If you have the UltraMetabolism book - get this too
    One book needs the other - buy this one for more great recipes and a continuation of the first book's advice. I love it....more info
  • Life Changing
    I am so thankful that Dr. Hyman was interviewed by Woman's Day last year! I read the article, bought The UltraSimple Diet. Several of my coworkers tried it at the same time and we all had amazing results. 10-15 lbs of weight loss within a few weeks, and more importantly, feeling better than we ever had. I am at the next stage, The UltraMetabolism and am loving all of these great recipes. They are all so easy! I do not have to take reflux or cholesterol meds any longer!...more info
  • Best tasting healthy recipes by far!
    I got this book about a year and a half ago and it is still my go to cookbook. I haven't made a single recipe that I haven't loved and gotten rave reviews for. The quinoa and garbanzo bean salad is to die for and the green bean, tomato and pumpkin seed salad is phenomonal (I've had multiple people ask for the recipe). I've been a bit slacking lately, but when I was fully committed to the book I dropped from a size 6 to a size 4 which is smaller than I was in high school when I was extremely active. Fully committing is pretty costly, but definitely worth it. I'm hoping he comes out with a second book soon cause I've made each of these quite a few times already! On a seperate note, Clean Eating Magazine also has a ton of amazing recipes if you are looking for delicious and clean options and runs a close second to this book!...more info
  • interesting cookbook
    I believe you have to be pretty serious about wanting to get healthy to benefit from the cookbook. I will probably use about 1/3 of the recipes. But I am such a fan of Mark Hyman, I found myself attempting some of the dishes that I might not have otherwise. The ingredients used for the recipes can be found at any Whole Foods store....more info
