Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
While fans of Gladys Knight know of her wonderful voice, they probably don't know that Knight has fought to prevent her family's hereditary disease, diabetes. As a child growing up in the South, food and family celebrations around a dinner table were important, and from the time Knight reached her teens, she battled a weight problem. She spent many years trying out various diets with little long-term success. A few years ago, she embarked on an exercise and diet regimen with a trainer, Al Claiborne. This program really a combination of sensible eating and regular exercise transformed Knight's life. The book divided between personal details about her life and her exercise/diet regimen and recipes is easy to read. The statistics about diabetes are clear; boxes are used to present the most important information. The advice, while not unique, is sensible. "The easiest way to engage in any activity program is to make it fun. Do something that you enjoy.... You may not realize it, but almost any activity you do can be a way to burn calories and lose weight." Knight doesn't offer a specific step-by-step diet; instead, she talks about eating natural foods rather than processed ones and trying to exercise regularly. This book is an inspirational start for readers who need motivation, but they will probably also want to consult more complete diabetes diet/recipe books that offer daily recipe plans. (Oct.)

    I am an author and a poet and during a leisure trip to Las Vegas, Nevada with my family, we were able to obtain a front row seat at the Gladys Knight Show. It was awesome. What a display of great talent! Reading her book is fascinating. The historical perspective of her story is amazing. She states how she believes diabetes eventually crept upon her, and why. However, she has it under control. The ways in which she blends her songs into her treatment plan is humbling. For example, she uses the heading in one section of the book, ¿Neither One Of Us Wants to Say Goodbye to the Cheeseburger,¿ where she discusses fatty foods and how to avoid fast foods. The pictures of her family are wonderful. Her philosophy of dealing with positive people, exercising daily, and burning calories is a formula for success. The final section of the book deals with a variety of mouth-watering dishes and recipes. They are all healthy with her special blend of spices, herbs, and juices, with a low fat touch. This is an easy and relaxing book to read. It¿s a great treat to and for lowering one¿s blood sugar and staying healthy. I highly recommend it!!!
