Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
According to Napier (Power Nutrition for Chronic Illness), a nutritionist who herself has type 2 diabetes, the disease is on the rise: formerly called adult onset diabetes, type 2 is now being found in teenagers and children. Diabetes frequently goes undiagnosed, and it may lead to serious complications such as blindness, kidney damage and heart disease. Napier stresses that weight loss is the key to avoiding diabetes, type 2, as well as to lowering blood cholesterol and avoiding the risk of hypertension, the silent killer. For those who have the disease, she recommends a diet and exercise program designed to control blood sugar. She goes into a great deal of nutritional complexities to explain her eating plan, but essentially this sensible program is similar to those advocated by many other health-care providers. A diet that will lower blood sugar should contain nutritional carbohydrates (fruits and grains) rather than carbohydrates that are stripped of nutrients (soda and cookies). It is important to eat fiber-rich foods and low fat proteins (broiled and baked meat, fish and poultry rather than fried foods). The most accessible and interesting part of the author's program is the 28 days of interchangeable menus, calculated at either a 1500 or 1800 daily calorie intake. Some of the many mouth-watering recipes included are the Double Raspberry Shake, a Hummus Spinach Wrap and Lemon-and-Orange-Roasted Red Snapper. Napier offers an easy-to-read, thorough and encouraging reference for type 2 sufferers and their caretakers. (June) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    From a registered nurse: a must-buy book for people with diabetes

    I am a registered nurse and also the daughter of someone with type 2 diabetes. I found the book very well written and also very accessible to a wide range of people with type 2 diabetes. My mom LOVES the recipes, and also finally understands her condition and how to control her blood sugars. I highly recommend this book for people of all ages, including those who have never read a lot about type 2 diabetes.

    Highly recommend for my diabetic patients

    This book is an excellent, easy-to-read and understand guide for any patient with type 2 diabetes, regardless of how much they currently understand. I especially love the menu plans and recipes. Kris makes understanding the science easy. As a registered dietitian, I highly recommend this book for all of my patients with type 2 diabetes, as well as for those who are at risk and also those with pre-diabetes.

    Highly recommended to EVERYONE desiring to lead a healthy lifestyle!

    Eat Away Diabetes is extremely well researched and superbly written! Taking complex subject matter, the author uses practical explanations and analogies, thereby making diabetes much easier to understand. The information is current and extremely useful for people with Type 2 diabetes and those working to prevent this potentially devastating (but preventable) disease. Numerous charts and sidebars are used throughout which serve as excellent references in my practice as a registered dietitian. The author emphasizes the importance of exercise at length and explains the roles of fiber, fat, carbohydrates, protein, vitamin/mineral supplementation, and herbs. Ms. Napier also provides 28 days of menus and their accompanying recipes (which are healthy, creative, and tasty). This book will remain a useful resource in my professional practice and daily life! Thank you, Kristine Napier!

    Easy to understand information on diabetes

    Type 2 diabetes is a national epidemic. Lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise, are necessary to prevent complications (heart disease, stroke, vascular disease, blindness) in those with Type 2 diabetes and prevent the disease from occurring in those at high risk. Medical advice regarding diet often leaves patients confused and therefore unable to follow their advice. Kristine Napier defines Type II diabetes and the steps needed to control this disease in a way that is easy to understand. She provides advice and examples to help the reader incorporate her guidelines into their everyday life. Her 28 day guide of menus will help those get started and as always, Kris¿s recipes are easy to follow and delicious. Last, but not least of importance, is that all of Kris¿s advice is based on scientific evidence and conforms to national guidelines.

    Healthy Eating Can Help ManageType 2 Diabetes

    As a Cardiac Counselor/Behavioral Health Specialist, I have been searching for a comprehensive book on Type 2 Diabetes that I can recommend to my clients. Kris Napier's new book, 'Eat Away Diabetes,' is all that and more! This book provides an excellent overview of the disease itself, along with delicious recipes that enable the client to take an active role in battling this disease. There is even a dessert section that includes Berry Fresh Cheesecake and Chocolate Brownies! As with Ms. Napier's previous titles on eating well to manage disease, this book provides the reader/user with hope and the gift of being able to eat healthy while enjoying what they eat! I recommend, 'Eat Away Diabetes' highly.

    I finally understand my diabetes!

    I have never read such an easy to understand book about type 2 diabetes. I finally understand why I need to control my blood sugars more carefully -- and how to do it! The food in Kristine Napier's book is real food -- so delicious and so easy to prepare. I will use this book for many years to come.
