Overview

Combined expertise from a doctor and a dietitian show exactly how those with this disease can adopt a program that will vastly improve and in many cases completely restore their health. Recommended is a low fat, high fiber, low sodium plant-based diet that not only works best to overcome insulin resistance but also helps to protect against heart disease, promote a healthy body weight, and achieve and maintain good blood sugar control.

Complete with over 50 recipes, meal menus, a basic shopping list and a new food pyramid designated for people with diabetes, readers are given all the tools they need for a successful transition to a new dietary lifestyle. User-friendly advice on how to improve exercise, sleep, sex and self-care addresses all of the essentials for living well including the importance of emotional well- being. In cases where diet and exercise are not enough, information on alternative therapies and supplements are explored as well as conventional therapies.
