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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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.Was this review helpful?

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!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
