CONTROL YOUR DIABETES BY TARGETING THE TRUE CULPRIT: STARCH

The author of the popular The Glycemic-Load Diet reveals his revolutionary method for keeping blood sugar stable for life.

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Rob Thompson, a preventive cardiologist and champion of glycemic-load science, brings you an easy-to-follow, low-starch diet-and-exercise program that promises to stabilize blood sugar in just seven days.

    Just top knotch for approaching your life with diabetes 2

    Well organized and written simply and in a straight-forward style, this book was an absolute pleasure for me to read - in one day. Dr. Thompson is a cardiologist and shares his own "journey" through his personal diagnosis with this condition - and he substantiates his personal experience and recommendations with solid references.

    Recently diagnosed with type-2 diabetes, I have been following a low-starch diet with tremendous success for the last nine months and I was able to supplement my knowledge with this book that explains complicated concepts in easy to understand language that I had a hard time finding in other books. The physical consequences of insulin resistance and understanding - step-by-step - the ways in which your blood sugar, blood pressure, levels of HDL and LDL cholesterol levels, can be manipulated by using nutrition, medication and exercise to live well and in control of diabetes.

    This book will be with me a long time. It is simply the best book that I have found on Diabetes 2. Thank you, Dr. Thompson for writing it.

    Good information

    This book lets you in on many reasons why and how things happen in your body when you have Type 2 diabetes. For those of us watching carbs, low-starch is about the same thing, but I still am an individual that likes to know why. At the back of the book are several recipes - of which I plan to try a few as they look pretty yummy.
