The Ultra Simple Diet

This diet is exactly what it says it is. It was developed by Dr. Mark Hyman, the Medical Director for the Ultrawellness Center and a pioneer in functional medicine. Here's how he describes his diet:

"Provide your body with the good things, take away the bad things, and you body’s natural intelligence takes over and you lose weight and gain health."

Daily Schedule

UltraSimple is a 7 day program that seeks to address toxicity and inflammation. Hyman believes that these two factors are the reason why many people struggle with obesity.
