Overview

Offering new hope to millions, this new nutritional approach to diabetes will dramatically alter the way we think about treating the disease

Until now, most health professionals have considered diabetes a one-way street. Once you developed it, you were stuck with it—and you could anticipate one complication after another, from worsening eyesight and nerve symptoms to heart and kidney problems.

Enter Dr. Neal Barnard, who through a series of groundbreaking studies, the latest funded by the National Institutes for Health, has shown it doesn't have to be that way. By following the diet outlined in this book, readers can control blood sugar three times more effectively than with the American Diabetes Association's diet and, beyond that, improve their bodies' ability to respond to insulin—in effect reversing the defining symptom of the disease. And there's more. Study participants lost weight, were able to cut back on and sometimes even discontinue medications, and left behind tedious exchange plans in favor of delicious foods in generous portions.

It's a new way to treat diabetes. It's about time.

Dr. Barnard does a great job of providing scientific information and practical meal planning to achieve a goal of reversing diabetes. The diet is vegan and may not be for some, however if you follow it for some time you may not go back to meats. Its not hard finding ingredients, however the point is to cut fat dramatically, its possible to make wise choices even if ingredients can't be found. Add some exercise and bingo results. I lost weight rapidly and got my blood sugar under control.

I purchased this book after my wife of 32 years who I have known since the 4th grade was diagnosed with Diabetes. Her blood was over 300. Her Kaiser Medical Nutrition staff recomended this book. I had no time to waste and made the suggested adjustments to my wifes diet and life style. as written in the book. Her blood readings are now between 80 and 130 and took approx. 3 months. She is down two sizes. I went along with the same diet and life style change to support her and have lost 29 pounds and never ate so well! READ THIS BOOK! From my experience helping a diabetic eat and live better be aware they are hooked on bad food like a drug junkie and will attempt to manipulate you, friends and family to give them the wrong food. Dont give in!

I am obese with all the co-morbidities associated with it: diabetes, heart problems, high cholesterol, TIA's...etc., ad nauseum: this book literally saved my life by promoting a healthier lifestyle without all the drudgery of calorie counting or calculations...this even works if you DON'T exercise! I have tried every diet trick ever promoted...this is the first one with lasting results, and the first one EASY and SATISFYING to follow! I have lost over 30 pounds in less than 3 months, and my 'labs' are awesome...my blood sugars are so 'normal', I am now off insulin...my triglycerides went down 200 points '!'...and my energy's up, up, up!! I am so happy 'and stunned!' by the results that I am now also 'pumped' about exercise...trust me, that's a miracle! Follow his advice to the letter for 3 weeks 'that's all he asks' and you will be hooked for life! I am nearly 60 years old, and for the first time in a very long time, I have hope for a longer, healthier, happier future. SAVE YOUR LIFE...READ THIS BOOK!!
