Overview

If you have diabetes, you likely have been told that it’s an irreversible condition. For years, the conventional medical wisdom has been that in cases of diabetes, insulin production has become permanently dysfunctional. But as Dr. Neal Barnard shows in his groundbreaking book, this is simply not true.

In a series of studies, Dr. Barnard has found that it is possible to repair insulin function and reverse type 2 diabetes. By following his scientifically proven, life-changing program, you will be able to control your blood sugar three times more effectively than with the standard dietary regimen for people with diabetes.

With Dr. Barnard’s program, you will eat regular meals throughout the day, building each meal around his New Four Food Groups: vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes. This new style of eating will improve how your body responds to insulin—thereby reversing the defining symptom of diabetes.

By closely following Dr. Barnard’s program, you can:

• Cut back on diabetes medications, if not eliminate them completely
• Reduce your risk of diabetes complications
• Realize bonus health benefits as you take off unwanted pounds, lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, and boost your energy
• Enjoy delicious foods in generous portions

Diabetes is no longer a condition that you must just live with. It need not slowly and inevitably get worse. If you have diabetes, now is the time to take control of the disease—and take back your life.

This is a fairly easy read and the key points are repeated throughout the book so that by the end, you have the basic tools for changing the way you eat and changing your life! I lost 10 pounds in four months with 4 inches off my waist. My BP, glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides have also improved. Dr. Barnard asks you only to give him 3 weeks on this plan but believe it or not, by the end of that 3 week period, you feel so much better and are so empowered to keep going that the weight loss is just a wonderful side effect! The thing I love about this new way of life (and it really is not so hard) is that you don't count calories or limit portions! It is a MUST READ if you have any of the above health concerns.

The book tells us how animal proteins which are found in all meats, poultry and fish, including eggs and dairy products such as milk, cheese and yogurt can cause further damage to the human body. Dr. Barnard tells us that we can live on the proteins that are produced by plants and vegetables such as broccoli, squash, beans of all types, legumes like lentils and some carbohydrates like brown rice. There are many substitutes one can use instead of milk, for instance. Almond milk is my favorite and I use it to create smoothies, for baking, drinking and for use in cereal with fruit. Dr. Barnard's book shows you how to become a vegan and what benefits it will provide you with by becoming a vegetarian. I highly recommend this book.

I bought this for my pops who has type 1 diabetes and has been following the diet for three weeks now, and has seen positive results. Blood sugar has gone down as well as his weight and is using less insulin.

I bought this book to begin to change my life, my health and my way of living, not only for myself, but for animals, too. I think it is very well written and organized, and pretty easy for someone who is not an expert in the medical field to understand. I found Dr. Barnard's examples of actual people inspiring and motivating, and I also find his writing to be intelligent, but not over my head. I think the book does a great job of explaining certain terms that are tossed around a lot, but that people may or may not know what they actually mean. All in all, I think this is a great book for anyone who is or may be at risk of becoming diabetic.

While this book appeared to have a lot of great information, I was looking for some solid meal ideas that I could put into practice. While this book did have some menu planning in it, many of the foods used were products I'd never heard of and would never be able to find in the grocery store. I'm not going to run to a specialty store to purchase these not-so-simple ingredients. I returned the book.

I bought it as a gift for my friend who has diabetes for 20 years. He was so happy to receive this gift. He is reading it and trying it out now. Hopefully, in a few months, he will become one of those successful stories. May everyone be free from all diseases/sufferings.
