Download The UltraSimple Diet Companion Guide


There were many resources that I was unable to put in the book.   To get the most out of the program, I suggest you download this guide before using the program.  The guide includes:

  • Preparation Checklist – A checklist to get yourself and kitchen prepared prior to starting the program.
  • Shopping List – Handy list of everything you need to shop for, based on the recipes provided and including the foods you should enjoy.
  • Daily checklist – A checklist for each day on your program
  • Journaling questions and exercises
  • Supplement Guide – Helps you organize what you should take and when.
  • Food Re-introduction log – An important tool that will allow you to carefully track how your mind and body react to different foods as you reintroduce them – a critical step in determining your optimal diet.
  • And more recipes!

The UltraSimple Diet Companion Guide, which is downloadable only from this site, contains all the extra resources and tools you need to succeed.

    Hi Dr. Hyman,
    I’ve just signed up for your newsletter thinking that I’d then get the Ultrasimple diet guide.
    However, your simply leads me to sellers of your book.
    I have your book and would like to download the guide before I start the 7 day detox (as you suggest).
    How do I download your Ultrasimple diet guide?????

    SO frustrating. Can you help? I submitted my email and name as requested and nothing giving me a link to download.

    As everyone else as written, there isn’t a working link to the workbook. I’ve know spent 1 1/2 hours trying. The book is written like a text book – Hello! we all believe and please give us what we paid for which is a solution. I’ve bought two books and suggested it to two other people – But if someone doesn’t get it together over there, I’m changing my amazon review and returned the ‘text’ books – not a solution just a frustrating tease and run around when yes my brain is fogged and stressed and I am committing – ARE YOU?

    You could also just do something all crazy like and email the ebook to those of us can’t get it.

    If you want people to use your guide, you need to make it more readily available. I’m not a stupid person, but I’m am starting to feel this way as I spend half an hour trying to download this Companion Guide. I just keep going into an eternal loop, ending up in the same place—-and without the guide. And DON’T send me the canned answer you are giving the rest of the frustrated people trying to access this guide
    (i.e : Sorry about the confusion, please use this link:
    ) This doesn’t work.

    Same result. Your webpage need to be upgraded it is not user-friendly at all. Also, someone needs to review the kindle version of the book. It is full of misspelled words, paragraphs duplicated a few times. Where it should say “UltraBroth” it say “UltraBath” several times. Very poorly down.

  9. Marybeth May 16, 2013 at 3:33 pm #

    Same problem. Bought the book where the link was provided but there is no place to download the guide. What is the solution? Diet may be Ultra Simple but downloading the guide is not!! Please don’t make me think you guys are ripping people off…..

    Mission Impossible to down load the ultrasimple diet guide even after a year of these comments.

  11. Sue Selman May 23, 2013 at 8:18 pm #

    HELP several attempts at downloading the ultra simple companion guide not the only one to have this frustrating problem! What’s wrong with the website? Can you email it to me as nothing else is working ! I have paid for the book on my iPad, however I desperately require the other support items.

    Thanks Sue

  12. Jeanne May 26, 2013 at 2:16 pm #

    I’ve had the same problem as the people have said above.
    There is no way to download the guide as is suggested in the book.
    Please let us know what to do.
    Thank you

    Hi! The problem people are having is that the links don’t work with older version (and some newer versions) of IE. You should be telling people to use chrome or firefox so your links work correctly or you should optimize them for IE. Hope this helps!

    Can you tell me the difference between the one week diet and the six-week plan? Is the six-week plan essentially just an extension of the one week?

    I am having the same issue as everyone else! What’s the deal? you tell people to go to this site, sign up for your news letter and then download the guide.. How?? the links do not work and your “staff” give the same generic answer to everyone. If this is how you run a business I am surprised you still have one. Please email me the guide or I too will be returning your book

    I have tried and tried but when I click on the “Download The UltraSimple Diet Companion Guide” link on the top of the page. No document is downloaded. I have tried Firefox, IE browsers without any success.
    Is this a tease or this document is really downloadable?

  18. Melanie April 7, 2014 at 11:58 pm #

    I’m looking for any help because I’d like to remain gluten and grain free – can you suggest options for the protein powder? Are there any extra guidelines for those with Hashimotos? My symptoms are awful and I’m looking to this detox as an eating plan alongside Dr Karrazian’s protocol. Thanks for your time.

    Am not able to download the ultra simple diet or companion guide. Help!

  20. Nikki Farrant August 26, 2014 at 11:05 am #

    Hi I can’t down load the guide. I have purchased and read the book but need this tool to carry on with the diet. Please can you let me know how to download this.

  21. Karen September 8, 2014 at 11:59 pm #

    I have just read all the postings about the impossibility of downloading the Companion Guide to The Ultrasimple Diet which was published in 2007. The comments go back to Nov 11, 2012 in this series of postings and as far back as 2011 in another series. That means that this issue has been unresolved (except in the minds of Team Hyman) for over three years!

    One would think that, by now, surely the web master for Dr.Hyman’s site would have figured out that the link only works for someone inside Dr.Hyman’s organization on their Intranet and is not working on the Internet.

    I’ve used both Firefox and Internet Explorer and the link given for the “download this after you’ve given us your email address so I can send you my newsletter and emails” just goes back to the same page or to this page

    The offer to use to download the Guide rings hollow as it doesn’t work at all.

    So, when are you finally going to really help people and give us all access to the Guide so we can all finally get full value for the money we’ve already spent in buying the book?

    This is unacceptable, especially in this day and age.

    Please do not, once again, suggest people go to the non-working link.

    Thank you for a wonderful and informative program. I had no problem downloading the guide.

    Dear staff,
    I am wondering if there is an online discussion about actually doing/using the Ultra Simple Diet. I am interested in those people who have done the diet very precisely (like me) and who do not lose weight. I am small–5’4″ and 145, and have eaten a pretty clean diet for a long time. Do I have to decrease the calories? And if so, how would you recommend?

  24. Amy February 28, 2015 at 6:29 pm #

    The Ultra Simple Diet calls for extra virgin olive oil– want can be a substitute? We are pretty such my husband has a large intolerance and used to have an allergy to olives/olive oil.

    I hope to hear from you …ASAP =) We start tomorrow/Sunday. I bought Sunflower Oil instead and do have coconut oil. I called the supplements number but did not receive a human voice.

    Thank you!
