Recommended to Misfit by: Amazon Vine
As one who already takes medicine to control my blood sugars, I jumped at this one when it showed up on Amazon Vine. Much more than a cookbook (which I'm glad as I'm not much in the kitchen), the book sets out in plain, easy to understand language the dangers of diabetes and the importance of a good diet with plentiful suggestions for making the *right* food choices. There are plenty of comparisons fat and calorie wise (with pictures) to many of our standard every day meal/snacks along with a su ...more

This book should be called Cook With Soy. There are plenty of ways to make food healthy BESIDES resorting to fake meat products for every recipe, but that seems to be the only solution these authors could think of.

More important are the tips for reducing calories within tr ...more

With a style similar to the "Eat This Not That" book series, Dr. Shapiro uses lots of photos to illustrate the difference between good meals and bad and provides lots of practical advice for the diabetic to take control of their life and eating habits. Nothing earth-shattering here but it is a good read.

I tried to read this book in its' entirety but I found a lot of the information presented in this book hard to swallow (pun intended). Most of the information is common sense and in my opinion not helpful at all.
