Overview

Most of the 18.2 million Americans currently living with diabetes have been advised by their doctors, or other health-care providers, that weight loss is essential for them to control their condition and stay healthy. However, the vast majority of people fail miserably at dieting, ultimately regaining the pounds they manage to lose.

The 7 Step Diabetes Fitness Plan guides people step-by-step to achieve a healthy body despite having excess body fat and diabetes or pre-diabetes—primarily by becoming physically fit. With practical information and tips on physical fitness, blood sugar balance with physical activity, nutrition, nutritional supplements, emotional fitness, diabetic medications, motivation, and more, The 7 Step Diabetes Fitness Plan gives readers the knowledge they need to prevent, reverse, and control their diabetes through fitness—and to live a long, healthy life without the need for dieting and weight loss—making this the essential diabetes fitness resource.
