    Very informative but.....

    I was just diagnosed with insulin resistance and found this book to be very informative. However, as far as the diet that the author in the intro claims that its not a diet and that you dont have to measure a thing in is contradicting. They offer up a helpful trick but there is measuring involvded and lots of planning as well.

    Hypoglycemia NO MORE!

    This book told me how to stop the hypoglycemia roller coaster! I have always been a healthy eater but could not seem to avoid hypoglycemia symptoms at times. I hate to feel ill! This book gives you the information you need to avoid feeling ill due to sugar problems. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for relief in the always hungry, sugar-craving, sugar-crashing department.

    Great resource

    I was diagnosed with Insulin-resistance, and use the balancing technique from this book to decide what to eat....While I am on a low dose of metformin, and following this diet plan, I have....for the first time in a LONG time....had dieting success. I was just about ready to give up because nothing else worked. This is a VERY manageable plan, and does deprive the dieter of anything....Wonderful!!!!!!

    Great insight!

    I found this book to be very helpful. I have PCOS and after applying the methods in the book, I am able to control the worst symptoms. I no longer have headaches and haven't really struggled with sugar lows. I don't always go by the rules but because I follow them most of the time, I am able to avoid a lot of problems. It was insightful and I would recommend it to anyone who has hard to get rid of belly fat, and other symptoms that come with sugar lows.

    Excellent Information

    I was impressed with this book because it also gave you the answer to why certain things work or don't work. A lot of us who have a weight problem do have a problem with insulin resistance. The information in this book is the basis of other diets such as the Mediterranean Diet and the Sonoma Diet. It makes a lot of sense and is very helpful. It is written clearly. I had no problem reading this book. I highly recommend it.

    This book has all the answers

    Since my diagnosis of insulin resistance I have been very discouraged about how hard it was going to be to manage my disease. Then my daughter recommended this book. It has easy-to-understand instructions, GREAT recipes, and wonderful advice. It has become my guide to learning my new lifestyle.
