We're living proof that you can manage and even prevent Type 2 Diabetes!

I remember the day I found out that not only was my blood sugar too high but my husband's blood glucose test revealed that he had full-blown Type 2 Diabetes. It was definitely time to become aware of our eating habits and how various foods were affecting our bodies.

Our doctor suggested we try a low glycemic index diet, also known as the GI Diet. This is not your typical "diet craze" type of diet. It refers to the way carbohydrates are ranked according to how much they affect a person's blood sugar level. The higher the glycemic number, the higher a particular food raises blood sugar levels. The GI Diet is not only important for those who are diabetic or pre-diabetic but is valuable for controlling weight as well as for overall good health.

Most of the GI diet recipes I found just weren't our cup of tea. So after much research and a lot of cooking, I developed menus and recipes that fit "real food" tastes and lifestyles. I've even included tips of what to do when dining out. This is why you'll find great-tasting recipes in my book—from omelets to chili to macaroni and cheese to blond brownies and coconut pie.

After one month on our new GI diet plan, my blood sugar was normal and my husband's numbers were cut in half!
