"The way we all should be eating."—Marion J. Franz, Certified Diabetes Educator

Rather than a cause for despair, a diabetes diagnosis can be the start of a new life for the person who embraces a better diet and healthier lifestyle. Medical experts are encouraging people with type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes to take charge of managing their condition, starting with eating well—choosing the right foods that naturally help stabilize glucose levels, thus providing long-lasting energy and vitality and, over time, a trimmer figure and a healthier outlook for the future.

Here is a cookbook destined to become a bible for the millions of households where diabetes is an everyday concern. From the award-winning kitchens of EatingWell magazine come hundreds of full-flavored, satisfying recipes the whole family can enjoy.

New Ideas: Take the best, newest scientific advice and forget the old advice of banning all sugar, eliminating all fat, and restricting eating to bland and boring food. With the right ingredients and recipes, a person with diabetes can eat better than ever.

The Right Carbs: Discover real eating satisfaction with a smart choice of carbohydrates, minimizing the problematic ingredients and emphasizing those that leading nutrition authorities are recommending.

The Right Proteins and Fats: Learn why the new approaches to eating well with diabetes mean using good fats and good protein sources to provide great flavors, positive health benefits, and freedom from hunger between meals. 10 black & white photographs, 16-page color insert, index.
