Overview

Until Dr. Barnard's scientific breakthrough, most health professionals believed that once you developed diabetes, you were stuck with it—and could anticipate one complication after another, from worsening eyesight and nerve symptoms to heart and kidney problems. But as this groundbreaking work reveals, this simply is not true. In a series of studies—the most recent funded by the National Institutes of Health—Dr. Barnard has shown that it is possible to repair insulin function and reverse type 2 diabetes. By following the scientifically proven, life-changing program described in Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes, diabetics can control blood sugar three times more effectively than with the standard diet; and cut back on and in some cases eliminate medications while reducing the risk of diabetes complications.

"The long overdue epic scientific breakthrough in diabetes is here…an obvious must-read for health professionals and for diabetic and potential diabetic patients." —Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., MD, preventive cardiology consultant, Cleveland Clinic

"This is the approach to follow…the clinically proven way to get your blood sugar under control… and start living again."—John McDougall, MD, founder and medical director of the McDougall program
"Dr. Barnard's book is no exaggeration…The signs and symptoms of diabetes can be reversed, and he's got the evidence to prove it."—Jennie Brand-Miller, PhD, author of The New Glucose Revolution

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.
