Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Physician Whitaker (Reversing Heart Disease offers some sound advice that is, unfortunately, shrouded by specious assertions, such as his belief that diabetes is a reversible condition and not a chronic disease. He promotes a sensible low-fat, high-carbohydrate and high-fiber diet (recipes included) and an exercise program, but his claims that diet and exercise will help ``hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions, of diabetics in this country to become drug free'' should be taken with more than a grain of salt. As he admits in the book, persons with Type 1 diabeteswhose diabetes emerged because of a lack of insulin in the body rather than the inability of the body to use it effectively``will almost always require insulin injections,'' although the amount may be reduced by following his regimen. He cautions readers to use this program under a doctor's care but repetitiously attacks his colleagues for their ignorance of nutrition and readiness to prescribe medications, and dredges up George Washington's unnecessary death by bleeding therapy at the hands of a doctor. He attributes eye damage to aggressive insulin treatment, which should also cause a stir in the medical community. Illustrations not seen by PW. (July 23)
Library Journal
Insulin has been the treatment of choice for most diabetics since it was first administered to humans in the 1920s. Most physicians offer diet and exercise programs to their diabetic patients only as an afterthought, and the traditional diabetic diet, which restricts carbohydrates, may actually promote the disease in susceptible individuals. Dr. Whitaker, founder of the Whitaker Wellness Institute, outlines a low fat, low protein diet designed to increase sensitivity to insulin. Combined with regular exerise, it will reduce the need for therapeutic insulin or other diabetic drugs. Well referenced, the book includes recipes, daily menus, shopping lists, and nutrient charts and appears to be a sensible if uninspired dietary regimen.
