Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Whether you’re someone who is newly diagnosed or has been trying to unsuccessfully shed pounds and manage blood glucose for years, Diabetes Weight Loss—Week by Week is the dietary owner’s manual you’ve been looking for. This wonderful guide holds your hand every step of the way during the delicious journey by providing great and practical tips from actual patients who are successfully managing diabetes. The recipes are AMAZING, too!"
—David Grotto, RD, LDN, author of 101 Foods That Could Save Your Life!

"If you’re in search of the best strategy for losing weight to help treat—or even prevent—diabetes, Jill Weisenberger has written a wonderful master plan for you. Chapter by chapter, week by week, the book is packed with specific advice and practical tools, including exercise plans, meal guides, and dining out tactics, that will help you achieve a healthy weight loss."
—Sharon Palmer, RD, author of The Plant-Powered Diet and editor of Environmental Nutrition

"I applaud Jill on compiling such a thorough, easy-to-read, and practical book on nutrition. Although it is focused on people with diabetes, the information really applies to anyone who wants to eat healthier. I found the goals for each week particularly beneficial in keeping me on track. Rather just another fad diet program, this book is focused on opening your eyes to the haves rather than the have nots. I have incorporated many previously overlooked healthy foods into my diet since reading this book."
—Brandy Barnes, MSW, Founder and CEO of DiabetesSisters

"This program should be in the homes of all diabetics to help them manage their weight. It is filled with sound and practical advice that systematically targets the behaviors that lead to weight gain and shows readers how to replace them with healthy habits that they can sustain."
—Barbara Rolls, PhD, author of The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet

"This comprehensive weight-loss guide for people with diabetes will educate you and motivate you to take control of your weight while managing your diabetes at the same time. It's not a drab one-size-fits all kind of plan, which for sure does not work for the masses. Jill Weisenberger takes the approach that everyone is different and that you need to tailor your weight management plan to your life, your preferences, and your health needs. You'll set reasonable goals, learn new skills and strategies, track your progress on innovative monitoring forms, and discover a healthier, happier, and more productive life."
—Steven Edelman, MD, founder and director of Taking Control of Your Diabetes

Not just another diet book or fad. This is an educational and motivational tool that helps you develop new eating behaviors! Easy to understand, to set your own goals and be reinforced with your successes to achieve a healthy life style! Positive, practical tips, with menus and recipes to guide you. A real addition to the diabetes management world, as well as for those without diabetes. Connie B, RD, LD, CDE

As a registered dietitian, I frequently get asked for recommendations for books about managing diabetes. This book is now top of my list! I love the way Jill presents all the topics in a logical format - calories first, since it's the most important....then, into topics such as carbohydrates, reading labels, what to eat for breakfast, building muscle, and eating out, too! There's recipes and meal plans, too! The stories from actual clients are also very motivating.

Excellent Book! I found this book motivational and very easy to pick up. I have tried most of the recipes and they were delicious so I disagree with the review just below. This book and the wonderful recipes included have helped me immensely. I have recommended this book to all of my friends!

The title is completely misleading. This book containes reciepes the Author obtained in Italy. Any one from the south will probably find the receipts as useless as I did. I was expecting a week to week guide to assist me in diabetic weight loss. This is just a fancy recipe book. A complete waste of money.

What a great and practical guide! If you are seeking a no-nonsense path to learning how to effectively manage health, this is it.

Managing weight and diabetes can be very overwhelming. Jill Weisenberger has done an excellent job breaking the process down into week-by-week steps that are more feasible for readers. Following this plan allows readers to make safe, healthy, gradual changes to health habits that can be sustained long-term. The book is a complete program with recipes, meal plans, and forms to track your progress. Jill’s approach recognizes the challenges people face in day-to-day living and offers realistic strategies backed by sound scientific research to make lasting behavior change.

Jill Weisenberger has written a guide with practical advice and tips to promote dietary and behavioral changes for blood sugar control. As a dietitian, I appreciate the gentle nutritional guidelines based on research and weekly skill building to support change, rather than information overload without any practical use. The inspirational stories, worksheets, meal plans and tasty recipes are a pleasant addition to the book. This book would nicely compliment one’s work with a diabetes educator and/or dietitian. If you want to manage your diabetes without feeling overwhelmed or confused, this is the book for you.
