"A timely and comprehensive roadmap to improving blood glucose control and reducing diabetes complications through simple modifications of diet and lifestyle."
Susan Carter, M.S., R.D., C.D.E., Stanford University Hospital
"An excellent book! Sherri Shafer draws on her extensive personal experience in nutritional management to make the dietary approach a very practical one. She doesn't emphasize the complete alteration of diet, but instead, how diet can be modified within the framework of an individual's personal preferences."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A timely an comprehensive roadmap to improving blood glucose control and reducing diabetes complications through simple modifications of diet and lifestyle."
—Susan Carter, M.S., R.D., C.D.E., Stanford University Hospital

"An excellent book! Sherri Shafer draws on her extensive personal experience in nutritional management to make the dietary approach a very practical one. She doesn't emphasize the complete alteration of diet, but instead, how diet can be modified within the framework of an individual's personal preferences."
—Raghu Mirmira, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor, University of Virginia Diabetes Center

"This is a comprehensive and pertinent guide to successful diabetes management. It offers practical solutions to a complex problem. With obesity and its related health problems on the rise in the United States, this provides a valuable resource to help us all pay attention to the lifestyle and food choices we make everyday. I highly recommend it."
—Marlene Bedrich, R.N., C.D.E., program coordinator, Diabetes Teaching Center, University of California San Francisco Medical Center

"A comprehensive, easy-to-read resource to assist people with type 2 diabetes on how to incorporate nutrition therapy into their diabetes management. The book provides practical information on nutrition therapy that can be put to use right away. Nutrition therapy, an essential part of diabetes care, is often a piece on which people with diabetes receive little information. The invaluable information in this guide will help empower people with type 2 diabetes to engage in self-care of diabetes."
—Lisa Kroon, Pharm.D., C.D.E., assistant professor of pharmacy, University of California San Francisco, School of Pharmacy

"I am very impressed with this book. It is a comprehensive, thorough resource packed with practical information. It is informative and current, and while focused on nutrition, nicely links these principles to important questions regarding exercise and drug therapies, among other issues. The text is user-friendly and is written in a manner that is easy to understand. I would recommend it to all my patients with diabetes, type 2 or type 1."
—Stephen M. Rosenthal, M.D., professor of pediatrics, University of California San Francisco
