    A reviewer

    What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Diabetes is not necessarily an easy read. However, it is very interesting. I suppose we all know diet and exercise can help reduce the risk of diabetes. Do you really know how to alter your diet and exercise? That is where this book comes in. Joyal explains that diabetes is a form of advanced aging. None of us want that. He goes on to explain what exactly causes this. The really interesting part of this book is the part about preparing foods. Slow cooking is actually the healthiest cooking. I am no longer feeling lazy about using my crockpot. Anyone with diabetes or a predisposition for diabetes should read this. If you are married to someone who falls into this category, it may benefit you to read this, especially if you are in charge of preparing meals. This is a bit heavy on the science, but don not get bogged down. If you must, skip to the diet part.
