In Week 1, you prepare for the Ultrametabolism Prescription by breaking bad habits. In this week, you eliminate the following foods from our diet:
-Processed and refined carbohydrates (white or wheat flour) and sugar
-High-fructose corn syrup
-Hydrogenated fats and oils
-Processed and packaged foods
-Alcohol (Don't worry, it can can be reintroduced later)
Dr. Hyman, the author of Ultrametabolism Diet, recommends cutting down the coffee intake by half the first 3 days and then cutting it out completely for the next four days. You are allowed to drink green tea in the mornings instead. In addition, you should take 1,000-2,000 mg of buffered vitamin C powder.
Dr. Hyman recommends cutting out sugar cold turkey.
