Product Description

Until Dr. Barnard’s scientific breakthrough, most health professionals believed that once you developed diabetes, you were stuck with it—and could anticipate one complication after another, from worsening eyesight and nerve symptoms to heart and kidney problems. But as this groundbreaking work reveals, this simply is not true. In a series of studies—the most recent funded by the National Institutes of Health—Dr. Barnard has shown that it is possible to repair insulin function and reverse type 2 diabetes. By following his scientifically proven, life-changing program, diabetics can control blood sugar three times more effectively than with the standard diet; and cut back on and in some cases eliminate medications while reducing the risk of diabetes complications.

"The long overdue epic scientific breakthrough in diabetes is here…an obvious must-read for health professionals and for diabetic and potential diabetic patients." —Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., MD, preventive cardiology consultant, Cleveland Clinic

"This is the approach to follow…the clinically proven way to get your blood sugar under control… and start living again."—John McDougall, MD, founder and medical director of the McDougall program

"Dr. Barnard’s book is no exaggeration…The signs and symptoms of diabetes can be reversed, and he’s got the evidence to prove it."—Jennie Brand-Miller, PhD, author of The New Glucose Revolution

2-0 out of 5 stars Disapointed-Old ideas! Soy is a No , No.
For a Dr. that is suppose to be very up to date on the what is happening with foods, this book has really disapointed me!
This book is about being a Vegetarian to keep your blood suger down and lose weight, which I do not have any problem with. But I do have a big problem when he says to get your protien, herecommends to eat everything SOY!
Soy has now been proven to be one of our unhealthy foods.
Its fed to cows, pigs, Chickens etc. to fatten them up.
We now know Soy causes, Thyroid problems, Cancer ,etc.
We are finding Soy is causeing Obesity in kids and Adults.
Fermented Soy does not cause those problems, and that is what Asian have been eating , NOT the
American Soy as we know it.

If you read your food labels,there is sometype of Soy in it, since its so cheap to make.
It makes a good filler.

Fermented Soy does not cause those problems, and that is what Asian have been eating , NOT the
American Soy as we know it.

If anyone is interested, you might want to take a look at the book on Amazon called, "The Whole
Soy story", which I have nothing to do with that book.
There are other books about the side effects of soy.

I can only give this book a two star given the misinformation about eating Soy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazed at blood sugar results.
We bought this book back in Feb. 2010. My father has been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes twenty years ago. About 4 years ago he got lymphoma, two different types. After going through treatments for the cancer, the diabetes went completely out of control. His fasting blood sugars were 230-250 range. He was on Metformin and Glyburide. Finally his doctor said Insulin would be next, and someone suggested this book. He failed Atkin's. Not sure if it was a compliance issue or if the diabetes was too far gone.
It took three weeks to see any difference in his fasting blood sugars. He took his blood sugar at least four times a day. After three weeks, he tested one morning and his blood sugar, fasting, had finally dropped to 150's. A month later 120's. At that time, his day time blood sugars were 150 to 200.
Three months out, his fasting blood sugars dropped to the 120s. His day time sugars no longer went past 160, 170.
Six months out, his fasting is 95-100. His daytime 120-140. The other day, he had a fasting blood sugar of 70.
He has been off Metformin since the fourth month. His glyburide has been cut to half pill twice a day. His attending is considering cutting that one altogether. When I sit down and review his book, I see a downward trend in the blood sugar, from the third week on. It just slowly came into normal range.
He eats everything that the book allows:
Sweet potatoes, brown rice, beans. Fruit. He makes his own bread with whole wheat flour. He oatmeal everyday. He puts raisins in his bread and eats it toasted with no butter. He did not appear to be over weight when he started but he has lost about 15 pounds.
This diet has really been a life saver. If you are dealing with diabetes, give this an honest chance. Very easy to follow and you will not be hungry.

5-0 out of 5 stars When you're ready to FINALLY get healthy - for good!
I first heard of Dr. Barnard's program through an informational show he did for PBS and I was astounded that something so simple, so easy to follow, could be the answer... but it is! I put my whole family on the program and within three weeks we've all lost a substantial amount of weight (my husband shed 20lbs in the first two weeks!), and we all feel fantastic! This is something that we not only CAN do - we look FORWARD to continuing on this path to good health. Try it, try it, try it!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Diabetic or not...Read this!
This book is MUST read for anyone who suspects he, she or friends are headed for diabetes.I am one of such and have been helped quite basically by the diet for reversing diabetes without drugs.The diet has so many other benefits that lead to much better health in other areas.

Product Description

After Gretchen Becker was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1996, she educated herself on every aspect of this chronic condition — by reading medical and scientific books and journals, talking with doctors and listening to her own body. In 2001, she marshaled everything she had learned as a "patient-expert" into the first edition of this book, which she has now completely updated and revised. The First Year®—Type 2 Diabetes uniquely guides you step-by-step through your first year with diabetes, walking you through everything you need to learn and do each day of your first week after diagnosis, each subsequent week of the first month, and each subsequent month of the crucial first year. In clear, concise, accessible language, Becker covers a wide range of practical, medical, and lifestyle issues, beginning with coming to terms with your diagnosis and then moving on to subjects including: Choosing the diet that is best for you The role of exercise Daily blood-glucose testing routines and understanding lab tests Medications and supplements Networking with others Insurance issues Traveling and socializing

Amazon.com Review
"The Greeks and Romans knew about diabetes. Fortunately, theway they tested for the condition--by tasting the urine--has gone bythe wayside." Diabetes for Dummies has the friendly, quirkystyle you expect from all the For Dummies books, but this is noskim-the-surface Diabetes 101. Rubin has packed this book with usefulinformation, peppered with warm advice for enjoying your life whileliving with diabetes. One of his points is that although you'd rathernot have this disease, you're lucky to have it now instead of a fewdecades ago, because today you can manage diabetes and live aproductive, quality-filled life.

The book is divided into sectionson "Dealing with the Onset of Diabetes," "How Diabetes Affects YourBody," "Managing Diabetes: The 'Thriving with Diabetes' LifestylePlan," and "Special Considerations for Living with Diabetes." Eachchapter is packed with facts and strategies on topics such asmonitoring, battling complications, medications, diet, andexercise. If you skim, it's an introduction to diabetes; if you readit carefully, it's a textbook. Web surfers will appreciate the"Dr. W.W. Web" appendix, where Rubin lists many useful diabetes Websites. (If you'd rather click than type, you can visit Rubin's Website, where he offers links to all the diabetes sites.) Also includedis a mini-cookbook of multiethnic recipes from noted restaurants,mostly in San Francisco (with the restaurant address, in case you wantto order instead of cook). --Joan Price ...

Product Description

Based on breakthrough studies, Cohen’s program reveals how people with diabetes can
reduce their need for prescription medication and minimize the disease’s effect on the body

Most doctors consider diabetes a one-way street—once you have it, your only option is to manage the symptoms with a restricted diet, close monitoring of blood sugar, and expensive medications. Pharmacist Suzy Cohen shows that diabetes can be treated instead through safe, natural means, like food and vitamins, rather than strictly relying on prescription drugs. She shifts the focus away from glucose management to a whole body approach, using supplements, minerals, and dietary changes to lose weight, repair cell damage, improve insulin function, and reduce the side effects from prescription drugs, many of which rob nutrients from the body and cause additional symptoms.

This 5-step program uses natural alternatives, such as drinking nutrition-packed green drinks, adding vitamin D and anti-inflammatory supplements, increasing fiber intake, and including minerals in the diet to help restore the body’s own supply of insulin. Diabetes without Drugs explains how patients can protect their heart, kidneys, eyesight, and limbs from the damage often caused by diabetes and shows the impact that the right foods and the right supplements can make in reducing blood sugar levels, aiding weight loss, and restoring vibrant health to everyone with diabetes.

Just because you have diabetes doesn't mean you can't enjoy life, eat well, and live healthy!

* How to use an individualized carbohydrate budget.
* Practical tips to lower dangerous blood lipids.

* A list of new foods that may actually help people with Type II diabetes.
* Everything you need to know about alternative sweeteners.

What's new in this edition?
* An updated section on trans-fatty acids and how to be a "trans-fat" detective.

* The 10 food steps to freedom.
* The latest research and findings on diet and Type II diabetes.
* The key steps that have been particularly successful for weight loss in people with Type II diabetes.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Reference book for newly Diagnosed Diabetic
This is a quick and easy read at 217 pages and recently updated. Mrs Magee sets it mostly up like a question and answer format. Has good large print for those of us who are having eye problems due to our diabetes. There are good and SOUND reference as to what to eat, carbs, restaurants, glycemic index and glycemic loading [etc]. Which after reading several books on glycemic index, it makes more sense in Mrs Magee's book that the other three I've read. BUT I still dont understand glycemic index and glycemic load. Will admit, I'm a bit lazy about weighing food and doing the math. :) There are good recipe exchanges and suggestions. She does have a few restaurant carb breakdown listings. Overall this is a good reference book on nutrition ONLY!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent source of information
I knew nothing about type 2 diabetes when I was diagnoised with it 3 weeks ago. I was sent home with very little information from my doctor other than the damage it can cause to my body and health. I was scared to eat anything because I didn't know what to eat. I got on Amazon.com and ordered 4 books. Of the 4 books I ordered, this book was extremely helpful. I am starting to see my glucose levels come down. And feeling a little more relaxed. I highly recommend this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars this book is saving my life
I was always scared to cut carbs out of my diet, because it seems like there has been some negative press for doing so.But, as Dr. Bernstein notes in his book, you never hear of "essential carbohydrate."Essential fats?Yes.Essential proteins?Yes.

Within 1 week of reading the first 1/3 of the book, my blood sugars have not gone above 120 or below 70.And I feel great.And I'm losing weight.

If you want to get better control of your diabetes, reverse Type II (adult-onset) diabetes, or avoid ever getting diabetes, this is the absolute best investment you will ever make.Dr. Bernstein (the author) is a Type I diabetic.He puts in the book what he has been doing to save his own life, and he has had diabetes for 60 years now.The doctor you see for your regular checkups?Unless he is diabetic, he is more worried about his lawn's health than he is your health.

Get the truth from the man who has had the disease for 60+ years, understands the disease, and is on your side.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dr. Richard K.Bernstein's Book is Well Named.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a diabetic or a diabetic caretaker.Although I was identified as a diabetic Type II about 6 years ago, and I've read many books about diabetes,and nutritional recommendations, this book explains and informs in easy to understand language ALL you need to know about controllingdiabetes Type I or II.Once I made the changes in my diet and daily physical exercise that Dr. Richard K. Bernstein suggested, I was able to test within the high normal range with exercise and modified meals. I'm grateful to Dr. Bernstein for taking the time to write about a complex disease with severe consequences if it is not controlled. By the way, Dr. Bernstein has been s a Type I diabetic for over 60 years.He knows what he's talking about from personal experience and from a medical doctor's point of view.

5-0 out of 5 stars A book for all diabetics and their families
I purchased this book in November in an effort to try and better manage my Type 2 diabetes which was is a state of deterioration. At first, I wasn't sure that it would be doable, however within in month I was losing weight without being hungry, by putting Dr Bernstein's recommendations into practice. My blood glucose readings were also improved. The HBA1C was reduced from 7.9% in one month and then in May it was 5.3%. I have also lost 30lb in weight. Now 8 month later, I have BGL reading in the 80-90s.

Dr Bernsteins book contains pretty much all the tools and information to help a motivated person take charge of their health. I, like many others, have diligently followed the usual suspects, like the ADAs recommendations, without seeing improvement in my health, just getting fatter and fatter and sicker.

This is the only program that I have found that gets results. It requires commitment and an acknowledgement that diabetes is a serious disease that requires serious management. If you follow the program you will get results, enjoy better health and stave off the awful complications.

Thank you Dr Bernstein.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the bible for diabetics and low carbers!
This book is the absolute bible for diabetics and folks who want to improve their diets by greatly reducing their carbohydrates.I have been a follower for almost 3 years (am a Type 2) and this man and his book have improved my life greatly.It's not easy to follow at first but it is considerably easier than killing yourself with high blood sugars.I am a convinced this is the way we all should be eating- not just diabetics and I'm a pretty skeptical person.I have read this book at least 4 times from cover to cover and refer to it weekly.Buy it and follow it religiously.It will change your life-for the better!

5-0 out of 5 stars Who's the quack now?
I am a member of the Skeptics Society, so I am no friend of "alternative" medicine, quackery, conspiracy theories, etc. But, in the case of diet and diabetes medicine, it's the establishment-- ADA, AMA, US Dept. of Agriculture, etc. that are the quacks. A charge of "Conspiracy" is a bit extreme, but the processed food industry, Big Agra, Big Pharma, and miss-informed medical professionals all have a vested interest in the status quo.

With mounting scientific evidence that blood sugar control through low-carb is superior to high-carb/low fat, the ADA, etc., have changed their criticism to "Well, it may work, but it's a diet that no one can adhere to..."
Bernstein's detractors seem to be saying, "But life-saving measures are soooooo inconvenient! (Translation: "Eat what you want, then inject yourself with 'industrial strength' shots of insulin!")

I haven't seen any scientific studies of rate of adherence to ADA-type recommendations, but how many people do you know who lose weight permanently on these diets? The first winner of "The Biggest Loser" is now as heavy ever. One website did an extrapolation from the scant data on the success rate of a popular for-profit weight reduction club that usesa diet aligned with the current US Food Pyramid. Result: only 2 out of 1,000 members reach their goal and maintain it for 6 months. Could a low-carb diet be any worse?

Following Dr. Bernstein's recommendations, I maintain normal blood sugar 24/7 without insulin or drugs. I probably would no longer be flagged as diabetic by many tests. A low carb diet is a bit monotonous, but it completely removes my cravings for sweets. On the ADA diet, I was constantly fighting urges for baked goods and snacks.

Bernstein's recommendation of frequent monitoring of blood sugar, rather than being inconvenient, is instead highly motivational. Most people on diets rely on the occasional sudden drop in weight measured on a scale for positive feedback. I have frequent dailyglucose readings to reinforce my commitment to healthy (Yes, healthy!) eating and lifestyle. (Incidentally, the AMA was once violently opposed to allowing diabetics to monitor their own glucose with meters. Go figure...)

Dr. Bernstein's books are not for someone who wants to shed pounds quickly by following a regimen for a short period of time. It's for people who realize they have a life-threatening condition and are seriously committed to responding to that threat no matter how "inconvenient" that may be. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Stop Prediabetes Now
This is a great book if you have high blood sugar.The only change I wish they would make is that in the list of foods to eat it does not list all the foods that you find in the book's recipes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Stop Prediabetes Now: The Ultimate Plan to Lose Weight and Prevent Diabetes
This is a very practical and readable book.It outlines some very useful advice on how to control your blood sugar and likewise some good advice on a healthful diet.Not a 'diet book' but instead a guide to eating for good health. My only objection is that it does seem to be a bit harsh in it's treatment of carbs--especially wheat and grains.However that said, it does justify this argument with scientific facts and presents evidence for all it's arguments. All in all, I think it is the best book I've read on this subject in a while and I've already begun to implement some of it's suggestions.In my opinion it is well worth buying.

5-0 out of 5 stars I got amazing results in 3 weeks!
Recently found out that my fasting glucose level was 101 ml and my total cholesterol was 320. I got this book hoping to reduce my glucose level and got a lot more than I expected. All I did was following the eating principals in this book and exercised 5x a week. As a result, my fasting glucose went from 101 ml (prediabetic score) to 80 ml (normal score). In addition, my total cholesterol went from 320 to 188! My LDL went from 220 to 121 and my HDL went up. My triglycerides went from 188 to 58. I really could not believe the dramatic change in my overall lab work as a result of reading and implementing the material in this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to improve their health!

5-0 out of 5 stars eye opening
I am about half way through this book and have already learned a great deal about what is in our food, how it affects us, and what foods should be avoided. This book also keeps me focused on my goals. There is encouragement through short stories that are inspiring. you do not have to be diabetic or pre-diabetic to get practical use from this book. I highly recommend this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars scared straight
I bought this book because my husband was in complete denial of his situation. BMI of 35 but unwilling to admit to being over weight. He was very athletic when he was younger and look good and was fit at 220lb. Now at 45 and 235 with no exercise for years he is in danger. His father is a diabetic ampute. In fear for his health I got him this book. In 3 weeks he's down 10 lb is on the cardio machine or lifting every day. His blood work is already better. As scientist we both like detailed well research information. This book delivers and even more importantly has a plan that is easy to implement. After all reading a bunch of facts can be over whelming and not lead to action. This book does both.
I do think it is a little sever on carb restrictions for long term use. Espcialy once your BMI and % body fat are healthy. The environment implications of every one on earth eating mostly meat and fresh veg. would be disasterous as they are finding out in China right now. The resorces used to make grain verus meat are unsustainable. ... Read more

Product Description
Most doctors and health organizations consider diabetes a one-way street-once you have it, your only option is to manage the symptoms with a restricted diet, close monitoring of blood sugar, and expensive medications. Not so! Author Suzy Cohen believes that you can treat diabetes through safe, natural means, like food and vitamins, rather than strictly relying on prescription drugs. And she shifts the focus away from strict glucose management to a whole body approach, using supplements, minerals, and dietary changes, to lose weight, repair cell damage, improve insulin function, and reduce the side effects from prescription drugs, many of which rob nutrients from the body. This 5-step program uses natural alternatives-all backed by scientific studies-to help you restore your body's own supply of insulin, the key to keeping blood sugar levels under control. In this breakthrough program, you'll follow these steps: ?Step 1: Drink nutrition-packed green drinks ?Step 2: Add vitamin D supplements ?Step 3: Increase fiber intake ?Step 4: Take glucose-lowering and anti-inflammatory supplements?Step 5: Include minerals in your diet to boost your natural metabolismBy making these five easy changes to your daily routine, you'll protect your heart, kidneys, eyes, and limbs from the damage often caused by diabetes and eliminate some of the complications you may already experience. ...

I received the book in a timely matter and also was pleasantly surprised that the condition of the book was better than expected. You can trust this seller. I would definately buy from this seller again in the future A+

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have book for diabetics
If you have diabetes, you may wish to read this book. I have a number of diabetes books in my personal library but as new books are published with more up to date information, I gain more insight about the disease and the steps I can use to deal with the issue. Example: I have read in other books that I should avoid all products made with white flour but was never explained why. This book explains how the alloxan toxin is created in the process of making flour white and how this toxin damages the pancreas. I like the idea of doing things that may actually help the disease rather than taking drugs that only mask the symptoms of the disease. The author lists many supplements that may help the disease or lessen the effects.

5-0 out of 5 stars Diabetic "MUST READ"
Save your life, get this book.Probably the best book on treating type 2 diabetes out there.(also some recommendations for type 1 folk).Did you know there is a type 3?Recommendations on natural vitamins, herbs, diet and exercise to help complete a 'holistic' life. Even for non-diabetics, easy to do improvements in your lifestyle to live a long and healthy life.Highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic book by Suzy Cohen
Fantastic information for anyone who wants to get healthy even with diabetes, doing it the natural way. Suzy gives great advice on many nutritional subjects, tells about certain supplements and has delicious recipes included. The book is very easy reading, down to earth, and is quite humorous at times. Suzy is an outstanding speaker and author. This book should be in every diabetic's library!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent information...
This book is a must have for all diabetics who are looking for alternative methods of controlling their diabetes. It is packed full of useful information and tips.Suzy is extremely knowledgeable about prescription drugs and what nutrients they rob your body of and what supplements you need to take that are just as good or better than prescription drugs.I love this book!! ...

I found this book very helpfull. The diet I would not use. But the infor was very good.

1-0 out of 5 stars Review of 30-day Diabetes Miracle
I don't like this book because it uses some hard-to-find ingredients in the recipes.I only need menus that use natural ingredients, simply cooked.I wish you had the book back.

2-0 out of 5 stars Adult Type 1s---Beware!
As an Adult Type 1, diagnosed 4 yrs ago at age 44, or for any Type 1s probably----beware of this diet!I'm not talking about the people who had unhealthy lifestyle/diets before or Type 2 diabetics.This diet skims the surface for us.I tried it for only a week.Thinking I could "rid" myself of thisdisease....bad idea.

The menus:contains oatmeal and lots of beans, etc....My blood sugars went sky high.Be careful!I am insulin-dependent, 4-5 shots / day.I emailed the publisher and asked them to be more careful with their verbage....just assuming that all diabetics can benefit from this diet.Please.I tried it.After breakfast, took a vigorous hike and still was at 290 at lunch time.

If you're Type 2, great, try the book/diet.But the rest ofyou like me, BEWARE!

4-0 out of 5 stars A Solid Primer for Someone New to Diabetes
Just a quick comment since so many others have commented in detail.

My mother recently received a diagnosis of Type-2 diabetes; therefore, my knowledge is limited but growing daily. This book presents a broad range of sound, helpful information in a clear, easy to understand format.

It also has portions which cause me concern (based on healthy nutrition in general), like recommending you skip dinner altogether and, instead, get all your calories at breakfast and lunch.

Also, please note, if you buy the book thinking you might want to visit the Lifestyle Center of America for their on-site diabetes program, they no longer offer it.As of January 1, 2010, they have a new book and program called The Full Plate Diet ([...].)

They do still offer support information to readers of the book at the site diabetes miracle.org where the password to access further information is "miracle".([...]).The site is worth checking out for detailed imformation on a number of diabetes-related topics and a sample journal. I could find no mention anywhere on the site about how long they will continue to offer this website.

Best of luck to all you seekers of health.

As a Health and Wellness Coach I found this book to be a great encouragement for those with diabetes themselves or in the family.The information is well written and documented.The recipes are excellent tasting and well balanced.I highly recommend this book to those without diabetes as the principles apply to other chronic diseases as well as those without overt disease.

5-0 out of 5 stars Reversing diabetes By Dr. Julian Whitaker
Excellent and empowering information. Easy to understand, easy to follow the suggestions for both diet, supplements, and exercise. I am never hungry, and have lost weight, even though I didn't need to. I feel much better and even the small amount of exercise has toned my muscles to the point where I have better endurance and energy. So, I don't mind doing more things like walking, swimming, and stretching.

I am pre-diabetic, so I will be getting a blood sugar test in a few months to see if my fasting glucose is better. Then will report the results.

Product Description
At last! This special cookbook puts flavor and choice back on the menu for people with diabetes and their families
Betty Crocker, America's most trusted friend in the kitchen, has teamed up with the International Diabetes Center (IDC)--one of the leading medical centers--to create an indispensable source of easy-to-make recipes and up-to-the-minute food and nutrition information for the growing numbers of people who have diabetes, more than 15 million of them.
Here is the first cookbook to include recipes featuring Carbohydrate Choices--the new, simplified approach to meal planning recommended by the American Diabetes Association. For people who find diet exchanges too hard, too limiting or too much work, this new method is a real breakthrough. Each of the book's 140 recipes shows the number of Carbohydrate Choices per serving, so that planning the rest of the meal is easy. From Old-Time Beef and Vegetable Stew to Creamy Vanilla-Caramel Cheesecake, the recipes are made with everyday ingredients, including sugar. No food groups or ingredients are left out, so there's no need for anyone to feel deprived or restricted to a special diet. Food exchanges are also included, making it easy for those who still count calories.
Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook is also packed with expert medical and nutrition tips from Dr. Richard Bergenstal, an endocrinologist and diabetes doctor, and two registered nurses--invaluable for the newly diagnosed as well as for those who have been coping with diabetes for years. Throughout the book, real-life advice from people who have diabetes offers inspiration and great ideas on dealing with this chronic disease. When it comes to eating and living with diabetes, people need guidance and advice they can trust. ... Read more

My husband is diabetic, and a meat-and-potatoes guy.Doesn't like anything ethnic or un-American (his words).So, this cookbook didn't really help us.It is full of recipes that include ingredients that are hard to find, not to mention time-consuming to prepare.I have two children in the house also, and they couldn't find one recipe in this cookbook that they would like me to prepare.It is full of information for diabetics, and I do like the color recipe pictures (that's why I gave it two stars), but otherwise, it just wasn't do-able for people who don't have much time on their hands and are dealing with pretty finicky eaters. ...

Product Description
Diabetes has become a seemingly unstoppable national epidemic, affecting more than twenty million Americans. Conventional wisdom calls it incurable, but renowned Dr. Gabriel Cousens counters that claim with this breakthrough book. There Is a Cure for Diabetes lays out a three-week plan for reversing the negative genetic expression of diabetes to a physiology of health and well-being. Dr. Cousens’s method, widely tested at his famous Tree of Life centers, is to reset the DNA through green juice fasting and a 100% organic, nutrient-dense, vegan, low-glycemic, low-insulin-scoring, and high-mineral diet of living foods in the first twenty-one days. Both practical and inspirational, the book explains how to abandon the widespread “culture of death”–symbolized by addictive junk food–that fosters diabetes in favor of a more natural, nurturing approach. The program renders insulin and related medicines unnecessary within four days as the blood sugar drops to normal levels; and the diabetic shifts into a non-diabetic physiology within two weeks. The third week focuses on live-food preparation, featuring 100 delicious raw recipes. Dr. Cousens emphasizes regular consultations, monitoring blood chemistries, and emotional support, and includes a one-year support program to help maintain a diabetes-free life. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Ideas wonderful, raw does cure diabetes, writing is scattered
Dr. Gabriel Cousens should be celebrated now as one of the most ingenious doctors of our time! Other physicians should all be required to study his findings. Dr. Cousens is obviously a genius and could benefit from a well-organized and practical editor (probably female mind - no offense intended). The book is a bit scattered and no real layout of food ideas organized to follow easily. I was 100% raw for over a year when I got the book, so I already had a pretty good understanding of practical implementation. Still I found it difficult to incorporate an improved regimen from this book (my reason for the purchase). I can say that my diabetes has all but vanished (from 9.0 A1C with meds. to 6.1 A1C without meds). My heartburn is gone for good, all my bloodwork is great, and I don't catch colds or flu anymore.

About this book. Excellent. Just like the other reviews.

For those who would prefer to read the book in Spanish, please google "Hay una Cura para laDiabetes - Gabriel Cousens". You should find it in his Tree of Culture Store online.

Happy reading.

4-0 out of 5 stars Eating Patterns for Highly Motivated People
This technical book offers helpful advice in reducing weight and blood sugar levels.On the other hand, Dr. Cousens' plan is extreme, expensive and confusing.As other reviewers noted, not many people could subsist on the Tree of Life program, at least not without help from the costly Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center.The book does include beneficial information, such as beanpod tea use and lists of essential foods, juices, herbs, vitamins and minerals.Take that information and practice as diligently as possible.Personally I find the book's rigid regimen near impossible to maintain, at least to the levels Dr. Cousens requires.I have found a more do-able diet/lifestyle approach by reading and following the free advice of David Mendosa at [...].This website is crammed full of useful information trying to achieve the same goals as Dr. Cousens' book--but it's easier to understand and practice in real life.

Product Description
A revolutionary new low-carb diet for diabetics by the doctor who pioneered a successful new approach to the disease--with 100 original mouth watering recipes.For diabetics, diet is more than a lifestyle choice--it*s the key to controlling the course of their disease. Many diabetics struggle their entire lives to maintain a healthy weight, but the guidelines given to them by the American Diabetes Association have proven unhelpful in regulating blood sugar--the critical component in keeping diabetes in check. In THE DIABETES DIET, Dr. Bernstein serves up the groundbreaking low-carbohydrate approach to diabetes care that has enabled his patients to take control of their disease by regulating their blood sugar without the usual swings. Dr. Bernstein himself is living proof of the success of this method, and he has the science to back it up. Plunging into the current debate on low-fat vs. low-carb diets, he shows that, especially for diabetics, low-carb is what will change lives--and he offers 100 delicious all-new recipes to help keep diabetics on track for life. The recipes and advice in THE DIABETES DIET will provide readers with an easy-to-follow guide for controlling their disease and regaining their health and well-being.* There are an estimated 18 million diabetics in America, and their number is increasing every year--yet there are no low-carb diet books appropriate for diabetics.* Since publication in 1997, Dr. Bernstein*s Diabetes Solution and its revised 2003 edition have sold more than 120,000 copies.* An engineer by training, Bernstein pioneered blood glucose self-monitoring and the tight control of blood sugar that is now accepted as the standard treatment of diabetes. He entered medical school at the age of 45 in order to publish his findings. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars The Diabetic Diet Book
I purchase the book in hopes of finding information on how to treat my own diabetes. I found the information in the book to be old and out of date. The diet itself will be almost impossible to stick to as it cuts out most foods except for a small list which is in the book. The author recommends purchasing Da Vinci syrups and claims it will have no effect on blood sugar. I did purchase the syrup and it spiked my blood sugar almost immediately. Look up the author on the internet and you will find little support for his approach. I would recommend you look elsewhere for ways to treat your diabetes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great to lose weight!
My doctor recommended this book after I noticed he had lost a lot of weight (he is pre-diabetic and checks his own blood glucose). I am overweight rather than diabetic and definitely was using foods high in carbs to make myself feel better. I have only been using Dr. Bernstein's guidelines for a short time, but already my clothes are getting much looser. It's been very hard cutting out the breads and cereals I love but I am actually feeling better enough to make it worth it. My doctor had been recommending eating fewer carbs for a long time. Highly recommend for anyone.

it's sounds great when you read the sample but then when you get to what can you and what cant you eat part( and you must buy the book first , to get there)

For those of us with diabetes a really useful book, full of information about this disease and suggestions for what to eat and ESPECIALLY what not to eat.

2-0 out of 5 stars Bad format translation ruins recipes
This book is essentially two parts. The first part is about carbohydrates and diabetes, and I found it valuable. The second part is recipes, which I found largely useless, because of ingredients lists that contain measurements and amounts like "H cups" or "H teaspoon." I'm guessing that these "H"s and similar puzzlements are actual amounts in the book's printed version, like perhaps 1/2 or 1/3, but who knows? In any case, the original text did not make it into the ebook. The publisher obviously didn't bother to proof the ebook, but charges a hefty price for it anyway. I wish the recipes were as useful as the money I spent to buy it. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars What to eat when you have Diabetes
I purchased this for a friend who was newly diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.I also purchased one for myself even though I have been dealing with this disease for over 20 years.

I found this book somewhat helpful, especially for the newly diagnosed patient.It lets you know you don't have to give up the foods you love, just eat them in moderation.

I would recommend this book, especially for the newly diagnosed patient.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing carb guidance and recipes
I may keep this book for the nutrition info on fats, alcohol and snacks. It is truly a beginner's
guide for someone with diabetes.With a family member recently diagnosed with diabetes who has built a little
library of diabetes guides-I find myself disappointed in this.I was hoping for great food ideas and recipes
to expand our choices-and for someone who limits carbs to 30-40 per meal this is not much help.A good
guide to healthy eating but not much help to someone preparing meals for a diabetic devoted to a truly low
carb intake.

5-0 out of 5 stars Newly Diagnosed Diabetic?
This book takes the fear out of the "now what can I eat" anxiety.It is very simple and straight foward reading.I highly reccommend this book for the person who has been newly diagnosed with diabetes...it has helped out my family.

5-0 out of 5 stars I loved this book!
This book is a great resource for anyone who faces the challenges of managing type 2 diabetes - the major one being what to eat! Not only does it help a person decide what and how much to eat, the book also provides tasty recipes (I loved the Cranberry Pear Salad recipe and the Bruschetta Baked Potatoes) and tips on how to eat out without losing ground. The authors give practical advice on how to accomplish lifestyle goals including nutrition and exercise (I personally find it very helpful to use a pedometer to measure steps). Also included is a wealth of information about how to manage diabetes and demystify the myths about "diets" and diabetes. I give this book a big thumbs up! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Guide
The Best Life Guide to Managing Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes is a terrific book I wish I'd had 15 years ago, before I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. I might not have wound up with the disease if I'd had this information in the Pre-Diabetic stage. I recommend every Type II Diabetic buy and read this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, with practical plan to be followed.
I've entered into the pre-diabetic range for the last two years, and I've managed my diet and exercise to avoid getting into diabetes. Besides getting the routine semi-annual lab blood testing, I also purchase the do-it-yourself glucose tester to monitor my blood sugar on monthly basis.

Over the past two years, I read some books about diabetes. Comparing with other books that I read, this book offers a useful, sensible approach to deal with this problem. The strategies outlined here are workable and the information is well presented. The author understands that no one can make every needed changes all at once, so he encourages readers to takes steps in several phases. Also, the various meal plan examples in this book are reasonable....while meal plans on some other books tend to be out of ordinary of what most people will regularly make and eat....their meal plans are either too fancy for everyday meals, or expensive for everyday meals.

In summary, this is a book worth reading and keeping.

5-0 out of 5 stars Solid, practical information well presented
I am prediabetic and am struggling to turn things around.This book offers a useful, sensible approach to dealing with this problem.I learned more about understanding my blood glucose tests than I did working with a diabetes educator.The recipes are nice.The suggestions for becoming more active are gently approached for those struggling with exercise. I read many diet and nutrition books -- this is one I will keep and refer to many times.

5-0 out of 5 stars Eat Less, Move More!
Follow the recommnedations in this book to save your life! Or at least to improve the quality of it.It's time to get serious. A start is to read this no-nonsense, well-organized book on the subject.

The strategies outlined here are workable, and the information is well presented.

The information in this book is life saving.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Applicable To My Situation
While some may find this cookbook to be useful I found it contained recipes which I'm unable to use due to my particular diabetic condition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book!
This is a great book with easy to follow recipes for the concerned diabetic. Absolutely no reason to feel deprived by being on a "restricted" diet. Healthy, fun and varied food choices.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mediterranean Diabetes Cook Book
This is a great book.Easy to understand instructions and tips with ingredients that can easily be obtained in grocery stores.It also features a section on how to make and store your own spice blends.Some blends may prove harder to find and having recipes to make your own really makes the job easy.
I have tried several of the meals and find them easy to prepare, wonderful in taste and very presentable on the table.
Even if you don't suffer from diabetes, this is a great fresh food/healthy eating collection.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Cookbook
I don't do much cooking and don't particularly like to cook but I've found these recipes fairly easy and very tasty and best of all they have ingredients that are easily found at the local grocery store.It's smaller than most cookbooks so you don't feel like you're weight training with it.I'd give it 5 stars but it's a cookbook so the most I can manage is 4. Highly recommend it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Indefensibly bad
If you like iceberg lettuce and fish sticks and think that Italian parsley and cilantro are interchangeable in a salsa recipe, then you might like this cookbook. For the rest of us, it's another one that carries the AHA and ADA approval imprints, which blows the credibility of any cookbook that does for me. Try the EatingWell one.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best cookbooks!
I really like the recipes in this book. Easy to follow and make. Everything I have tried has been very good.One of the best cookbooks I have found for both diabetes and heart healthy meals.

4-0 out of 5 stars Devil's Food Cupcakes are Divine!
I bought this as a gift for my mom, who is a diabetic/heart patient, for her birthday.I decided to use the Devil's Food Cupcake recipe to make her birthday cake.YUM!My whole family (including hubby, teenager, and picky 9 year old) thought it was great and didn't think it tasted at all like a special diet recipe.Two weeks after ordering this for my mom, I myself found out that I'm pre-diabetic and will be ordering myself a copy of this book very soon.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Recipes
This book is full of great recipes whether you have diabetes or not. I have many many favorite recipes from this book. Most are easy to prepare.
Great book and I would highly recommend it. ... Read more
