Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Expressly designed to help those with diabetes develop healthy eating habits and lose weight, this easy-to-read guide compiled by the doctors at the renowned Mayo Clinic is a helpful and informative resource that certainly achieves those goals. Beginning with an overview of the disease, the authors clearly explain the importance of weight management and encourage readers to begin changing their eating habits immediately and with a minimum of drama. Tips on portion control, simple exercise activities, and finding a healthy weight help diabetics stay on track. And if they do slip up, the authors offer motivation, understanding, and encouragement. Those looking for recipes will be sorely disappointed, as the book offers only a handful; the emphasis here is on leading a healthy lifestyle and developing healthier eating habits, whether at home or in restaurants. Some may find the book's tone and layout to be a little patronizing—it's written at an elementary school level—but those who've recently been diagnosed with diabetes will likely find it to be a welcome resource.

Many diabetics could eliminate some medications and improve their general health through maintaining a healthy weight. Similar in style to The Mayo Clinic Diet Book, this book helps achieve that goal. Part 1 provides instructions to jump-start weight loss in the initial two weeks of the prescribed diet by focusing on habits that contribute to weight gain. Part 2 guides readers through gradual weight loss, encouraging journaling to identify habits and patterns that affect success. The last section discusses plate portions, maintaining new eating habits, and what to do when one succumbs to temptation. Common obstacles, along with strategies to overcome them, are listed. VERDICT Concrete advice and tips provide instructions that can be followed by anyone. Excellent color, photos, and layouts strengthen the pertinent, easy-to-read content. The extensive table of contents allows users to navigate easily. An outstanding contribution.—J.M.S.
