The Diabetes Diet
By Richard K. Bernstein M.D.

This is not a novel. It’s informative text on one diabetic/doctor’s experience with this disease. He offers incite into the cause, management and prevention to this problem that is plaguing Americans.

Did you know that insulin is the ONLY reason we retain fat! Well this idea was news to me and caught me from the beginning. I also learned what it means to have a ‘carb addiction’ and what happens when you are insulin resistant. I was abs

I'm determined to control my blood sugar without the use of medication for as long as possible & a low-carb diet is the way to do that. I'm not quite ready to try the extreme low-carb diet the author suggests, but I am taking many of the things I learned about food & the effect on blood sugar control & implementing them into my food plan.

I like that this is a protein-based diet plan with vegetables included. I don't think I could go to a strict vegan/vegetarian only diet as other di

I had diabetes while pregnant and I never want to give myself insulin injections again. The best defence against adult-onset diabetes is to have a normal to lean body weight. However, I have wrestled with conflicting recommendations on how to lose weight. I asked myself, why wait until I have diabetes to eat in a way that controls my blood sugar. This book is full of useful information. Let's see whether I can make this way of eating work for me over the long-term.

Recommends it for: everyone who eats any food.
Anyone who is overweight, diabetic, ill or just not feeling up to par could benefit from these recipes. They have been thoroughly scrutinized by Dr B. working with professional chefs and are nutritious and balanced.

The first part of the book explains what the plan is and why, and the second part is over a hundred tasty recipes. I like knowing why I am eating this way and how to balance carbohydrates. The recipes have done all the math.

Discipline is needed to nutritionally control food intake, a

There is some great information in this book, but it is not a standalone. Nearly every page contains a reference to one of the author's other books.
