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 I found the information in the book to be old and out of date.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.

1-0 out of 5 stars I cant believe I bought that book
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)
I'm just speechless, how can I tell my 10 year old son you cant eat pasta , bread
nuts fruits and on and on and on , good for you who can actually stick to this torture I know I could not and I now that I will not make my Sons live misarable with it

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent and informative book
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 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

Basic information that follows ADA guidlines. If you are really interested in knowing how to control BG with diet and exercise without medications you won't find it here.

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.

Product Description

     Nearly 21 million Americans already have diabetes, and at least 54 million adults over the age of 20 are at risk. Fortunately, there is good news: Studies have shown that people with pre-diabetes who lose weight and increase their physical activity can prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes—and even return their blood glucose levels to normal. This outstanding cookbook draws on the latest science to make losing weight and getting blood sugar under control easier than ever before.
     Diabetes Diet Cookbook features:
-a new approach to controlling blood sugar naturally—by eating up to 50 grams of fiber a day (nearly
twice the USDA’s recommended daily intake)
-easy menu plans that lower daily carb intake to target abdominal fat, a leading risk for the heart
disease that commonly accompanies diabetes
-more than 200 great-tasting dishes—from Better-for-You Burritos and Skinny Monte Cristos to fabulous special-occasion desserts—that will satisfy the whole family and completely eliminate the need for separate meals
-hundreds of practical tips for living well with diabetes
     Designed to bring about steady, permanent weight loss—up to 2 pounds a week until one’s goal weight is reached—and filled with inspirational, real-life success stories that illustrate Prevention’s trusted advice in action, this is an indispensable book for anyone who has, or is at risk of developing, diabetes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Diabetes Diet New Fiber-Full
Great book! Tasty and easy receipes for all your family. I was looking for a good cook book for a diabetic and here it is.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Reference
I decided, on my own, to begin a diabetes-type diet --- my blood glucose count was a bit high (for the first time) at my last physical exam. So --- rather than wait, I did some research and changed my eating habits. Although I have, so far, had no professional guidance, I find this book easy to follow --- the diet explanations are clear and the recipes easy--- the results delicious. One of the best purchases I have made.

This book is awesome! My dad has diabetes and this book really changed our lives. The start off meal plan is easy and everything is delicious! My mother, my husband and I also ate our meals straight out of this book with my dad and we all lost weight and felt great. Eating better really makes a difference in all aspects. I lost 25 pounds right away and my dad lost even more and his diabetes is under control. MY TIP:Don't consider it a diet, because it doesn't feel like one! It's just eating better to feel better and be better! Making healthier choices is easy for all of us now. I'm glad we decided to do this for my dad because it ended up helping all of us!

3-0 out of 5 stars a little disappointed
The book was new as stated but I am a little disappointed in the contents, the diet is unrealistic to most people in my opinion, at least for my husband. The information in the beginning of the bookwould be useful to someone new to this medical problem..

The book was well received by the recipient. As a nurse practitioner, I often deal with complex needs in nutrition. Many times you attempt to meet the health care needs of the patient while also making accommodation for the family of the patient. More dietary help is often needed. This item is helpful.

4-0 out of 5 stars Lost weight and inches
I tried this diet while my teenage daughter was gone for five weeks so I wouldn't be tempted to eat outside of the plan. Loved the recipies and meals, it was easy to follow and I visibly lost stomach fat and weight. I did break it up into about five meals a day by saving part of my lunch for afternoon snack. I think it worked because I was allowed to have fats I enjoy, like avacado. I recommend it with one caution: dietes are subjective and don't work if you aren't ready, and they won't work if the diet is impossible for you to follow. I learned that the hard way.:)

Product Description
"Practical and on-target advice."–Marion J. Franz, M.S.,R.D.,C.D.E."Practical nutrition information with powerful health implications. . . . Carolyn Leontos takes readers by the hand and leads them step by step toward the goal of good blood glucose control."–Patti Geil, M.S., R.D., F.A.D.A., C.D.E. From the moment you or a loved one is diagnosed with diabetes, immediate changes must be incorporated into your diet because what you eat–and how you prepare what you eat–has a great impact on the progression of the disease. What to Eat When You Get Diabetes begins from that very first moment of diagnosis, acquainting you with the types of foods and meal plans ideal for people with diabetes. But as Carolyn Leontos explains, you don’t have to give up your favorite foods to control–or prevent–diabetes. In this practical and reassuring resource, Leontos shows you that a diet for people with diabetes can be filled with satisfying, delicious dishes. Drawing on her extensive experience as a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, she combines satisfying menu suggestions, sample meal plans and recipes, and ideas on how to modify your favorite recipes with the personal stories of people living healthily with diabetes. She also addresses such confusing issues as weight loss, meal plans, calories, portion sizes, eating in restaurants, vitamins, and effectively balancing food and medication.You will discover:

  • Why you don’t have to give up your favorite foods
  • The truth about saturated, polyunsaturated, and monounsaturated fats–and trans fatty acids
  • What constitutes a balanced meal
  • What to order in restaurants
  • Why fat is important–and why you shouldn’t eliminate it from your diet

What to Eat When You Get Diabetes takes the mystery out of good nutrition–and shows you how healthy eating can help you achieve lifelong wellness. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time
I did not find this book informative. It basically dealt with folks who, while their sugar was high, were experimenting with what to eat and how it effected their sugar.These people were not on medication.

5-0 out of 5 stars Voice Of Reason And Hope
Whether you've just been told you have diabetes or have lived with it for years, there is something for you here. The writing style is easy to understand, and the ideas are reasonable and practical. There is a lot of good information here, and it is presented in a style that felt like I was connecting with a person, a friendly dietician who understood my confusion and frustration. The author recognizes the fact that people will need time to make changes and helps diabetics find a food plan that they can use with the whole family without agonized screams about serving cottage cheese and carrot sticks for dinner. :) I've bought other books that are either too academic or have meal suggestions that I'd never use. After using some of the ideas in this book, I was able to get my glucose levels into the normal range without too much trouble or eating food I don't like. I also lost 15 pounds to boot without really trying. :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Not just for the newly diagnosed
I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes nearly 10 years ago. And I found this book very useful and practical. Medical understanding of diabetes is always changing, and this book is a good update for me on the nutritional end.It's even helped me win a couple of arguments with a nurse who is "close" to me, but hasn't studied diabetes since nursing school! Excellent value, and I've recommended it to the nutritionist with whom I work.

5-0 out of 5 stars No gloom and doom here!
As a recently diagnosed Type 2 diabetic, I am looking for lots of information on how to manage the disease in a healthy, positive manner.This book has really helped me.Author Leontos clearly explains the challenges in store but emphasizes positive ways to react.I particularly like her information on modifying recipes. This book is a real bargain for all the help you get!

5-0 out of 5 stars The 30 Day Diabetes Miracle Cookbook
This is a wonderful cookbook for anyone, diabetic or not!I sat down and read it cover to cover and was amazed.I have tried several recipes and have many more to try.It introduced me to products I knew nothing about.You should try it, too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
This book is great! Most of the recipes are very simple to make and most of the ingredients easy to find at Walmart or Albertson's. I am truly impressed. The way of counting carbs is so simple and easy to follow. It really doesn't seem like you're giving up a lot of things for eating only salads. This is a way of eating that is realistic and very tasty. All the meals are plant based, so no meat, fish, eggs or diary on these recipes. But I really don't feel deprived of anything. A relative on mine has gotten their glucose levels within normal limits in 2 weeks only. I think it's a great book for eating healthy whether you have diabetes or not.

5-0 out of 5 stars Life Changing!
This book has changed my life! When I found out I was diabetic (Type II), I panicked. In fact, I was so scared I hardly ate anything for two days until I saw my doctor again. Thankfully, someone had sent a copy of this book to the network I work at for review. After they had reviewed it, they put it on my desk (still don't know who that was, but I'm so grateful)!

I read it all in one sitting. It's full of the best information, and stays away from all the crazy things that even sometimes doctors tell you (when they don't know much about the disease). I've been able to lose 40 lbs, and stay off any medications besides high blood pressure meds for a whole year. I'm working on losing the rest of the weight, and I feel better than I have in years.

It's simple, but in-depth. And written in a way people like me can understand. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! Now I give a copy of the 30-day Diabetes Miracle book and cookbook to each of my friends who are diagnosed with this disease. I just turned 50, and believe me, there are a lot of us who are finding out we're diabetics. Thank God it's not a death sentence if we do something about it!

BUY THIS BOOK. I can't urge you more strongly. It can make a difference! ... Read more

I ordered this book and several others like this one to help me figure out how to control my diabetes. The books are great. The ease of the ordering was fantastic and the books came very quickly. Thanks!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good information
I bought this book almost immediately when I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. It (along with general info from with web) got me acquainted with how I should eat with my diabetes, and made me feel more comfortable with my ability to cope with my condition.

This book contains a wealth of information on what kinds of things you can eat, as well as various tables and lists of things you can eat along with relevant data on each item in many cases.

Overall, this was an excellent book for me, and I am sure it would help others in my same situation.

3-0 out of 5 stars Informatively Fair
Family memeber with diabetes currently came to reside within our household and not being sure of the disease we found this book a fair informative guideline to helping the family member with the control of their sugar and keep the other memebers lifes unchanged but helped us all eat healthier.

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay, but there are probably better titles
The information in the book was okay, but the exchange lists and diet information we formatted poorly and were a little simplistic. That was the main reason I bought the book so I was a little disappointed. On the other hand, it did contain some good basic info.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource
This book stands out from others because goes beyond just telling you WHAT to do to manage your diabetes, it also tells you the WHY.By helping you understand the reasoning behind dietary and exercise guidelines, the author gives you the knowledge you need to make intelligent decisions when presented with situations not covered by guidelines alone.She seems to understand that everything isn't always black and white in life, and you have to make choices based on many factors.

I'm newly diagnosed.Since I'm not on any medications (and hope to keep it that way for as long as possible), the two tools I have to manage my diabetes are exercise and diet.This book addresses the diet aspect very well, while touching on the importance of exercise.It's not a scientific text, so it doesn't go into excruciating detail.It's an easy read.She helps you understand how the body works without diabetes, and then explains what happens differently when you have diabetes.You'll come to understand how different foods affect your blood glucose level - and WHY.Which allows you to understand and develop your own meal plan if you don't have access to a nutritionist.If you do, you'll better understand why your nutritionist makes the recommendations she does, and you will have the knowledge to discuss various options with her.

This may not be the first thing you want to read if you've just discovered you need to live in a way that manages your blood glucose levels.There are higher level overview books; educational websites run by the Joslin Center or American Diabetes Association; or better yet, diabetes management programs taught by diabetes educators and nutritionists at most local hospital that will give you a solid foundation.Ask your doctor about local programs if he hasn't recommended it to you already.

With that knowledge under your belt, this is an excellent book to take you down to the next level of detail.

3-0 out of 5 stars The Type II Diabetes Diet Book
Although the book is very well written and seems to offer hope to diabetics, my endocrinologist refuses to support my efforts to lose weight using this diet.She asserts that I could suffer kidney damage from being in ketosis.I am self-supporting and am planning on retiring next year. I cannot take a chance that my doctor would refuse to treat me if I became ill as a result of disregarding her recommendations.

Thank you!

5-0 out of 5 stars Get your life back with this book!!!
This book is changing my life.After watching my weight creep up, up, up for the past 8 years and dealing with the usual results...high blood pressure, high cholesterol, clothes not fitting, depression, and most recently, mild type-2 diabetes, I got my hands on this book and I now have a clear understanding of what I've been doing to my body and what foods I need to really watch.By following the book's guidelines I've been able to lose 14 pounds in about 5 weeks. I still have a ways to go but I'm confident that I'll be able to accomplish my goal. And, without hunger. Even if you're not (yet) diabetic but need to lose some unwanted pounds, I guarantee you'll be able to quickly do it with these guidelines.After my fantastic results so far, my doctor is ordering a copy and will be recommending it to other patients. One of the biggest things I learned..."Sugar is the #1 poison!"...which it states throughout.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worked for me!
When I first looked at this book, I thought there's no way - how can I go without bread, rice, pasta, etc.After thinking about it for a couple of weeks I decided to give it a try.I loved it.I truly never missed the processed foods and surprisingly was never hungry.I feel like my diet is much more nutritionally sound than what I had been eating, and after the first couple of weeks I had pretty much trained myself what and how much to eat.I've lost 18 pounds so far and a lot of it has been the "stubborn belly fat".Couldn't be happier and feel great.I think that as much as following the diet you need to include the exercise, which is talked about in the book.This diet may not be for everyone, but as someone who has been unsuccessful with weight loss, even with exercise, it's been a Godsend.

1-0 out of 5 stars Your Figures for My Figure Just Don't Figure
I was initially very excited to read this book, based upon most of the reviews as well as the preliminary information I read.However, after carefully reading the information, I'm afraid I cannot recommend this book to anyone else in good conscience, due to the issues I point out in the following note, which was e-mailed to the author at the address given in the book (and subsequently returned as "undeliverable," as the e-mail listed in the book is apparently incorrect or no longer working).

Not only didn't the figures from the book's Daily Meal Plans add up (which as you can see from my note below, were WELL beyond their stated limit of 40g of carbohydrates per day, even for a partial list of items from their very own recipes), but the e-mail itself was returned as undeliverable at the address listed on page 149 of the book (ezrin-ctrs@aol.com).

If the daily menus contained in the book don't even conform to the author's very own stated requirements and even the author's e-mail address is incorrectly listed, why in the world would a reader ever entrust their own health and well being to this dietary program?

I assure you I am in no way connected to any other dietary program of any kind, nor do I have any ax to grind against either the authors or their Insulin Control Diet program.I'm just a guy very recently diagnosed with a condition of "Type II Diabetes" whose doctor recommended weight loss as a solution and who turned first to this book in order to try to find it.

I even gave the authors the benefit of the doubt by trying to contact them based upon the information they gave in the book to obtain clarification on the apparent inconsistencies in the text, in case my observations were incorrect. But as I mentioned, I was unable to receive a response, due to the apparently inaccurate listing of the e-mail address for the author.

I am extremely disappointed in the book, not only due to its incomplete or inconsistent information, but also due to its extremely haphazard presentation.

My note to the author (returned as undeliverable) is included below.

Subject: Figures for the Figure don't Figure
Importance: High

Dr. Ezrin,

I am a 46-year-old male recently diagnosed with Type-II Diabetes and was excited to discover your "Type 2 Diabetes Diet Book," since it was written from the perspective of an endocrinologist.While the program does seem to make sense overall, what is most perplexing to me is how you arrive at a daily carbohydrate intake limit of 40g for your meal plans (which you say the daily meal plans maintain).

You mention several times throughout the book that a standard serving of fruit consists of 15g of carbohydrate (also referenced in the Appendix on pp. 303- 304).Since each of the meal plans consist of 2 standard servings of fruit (or even 2 ½, such as in the example I give below), this means that fruit alone counts for a full 75% - 94% (30g - 37.5g) of the daily carbohydrate intake amount, leaving only 10g carbohydrate for all the rest of the foods combined throughout the day.

As an example, following is the carbohydrate breakdown for Day Two of the Insulin Diet Meal Plan (from p. 135), based entirely upon the carbohydrate figures referenced in the Appendix:


Decaffeinated coffee- (not in Appendix)- 0g?
1 soft-cooked egg- 0.6g
1 cup chicken bouillon (not in Appendix, but listed separately on p. 243)- 1g
1 peach- 15g


Iced coffee (not in Appendix)- 0g?
Salmon Salad Sandwich- 5oz (1tbs chopped onion- 0.6g; mayonnaise- 1g; lettuce- 1g)
Salad (not defined) with Low-Cal Vinaigrette (iceberg lettuce- 2.9g; Vinaigrette dressing- 6.6g)
Gelatin (why not specifically state "sugar-free" here??? I'm assuming it is...) with D-Zerta topping- 0g?

Snack (afternoon or evening)

1 ¼ cup watermelon cubes- 15g


Decaffeinated coffee- 0?
Chinese Fish Steaks- (1/2 cup chicken bouillon- .5g; mushrooms- NOT EVEN LISTED ON THE VEGETABLES LIST IN THE APPENDIX!- 0.5G?; soy sauce- NOT LISTED IN THE APPENDIX- 0.5G?)
Beans with Basil (It doesn't specify the KIND of beans. However, based upon the Appendix under "Vegetables," `1/2 cup of cooked beans shows 15g carbohydrate)
Salad (not defined) with Low-Cal Vinaigrette (iceberg lettuce- 2.9g; Vinaigrette dressing- 6.6g)
1 cup beef bouillon- 1g
Gelatin & Fruit (again, it doesn't specify "sugar-free," but I'm assuming so.However, even ¼ cup of fruit is still 7.5g carbohydrate, no matter how you slice it)

You separately caution to allocate fruit portions sparingly, and yet even in this ONE DAY of the meal plan, the fruit portions alone that you specify already account for a full 37.5g of carbohydrates of the 40g maximum daily intake of carbohydrate that you recommend (in fact, you even state a recommended limit of between only 20 - 35 grams of carbohydrate in any 24-hour period elsewhere in the book).

The total amount of carbohydrate of all the other ingredients combined for this one-day's meal plan alone (the carb amounts for which are all pulled from the book's Appendix) which even then only constitute a partial list, based upon what the recipes call for, comes to 46.7g (already over your 24-hour maximum limit).When added to the amount of fruit indicated, this makes a carbohydrate consumption of 84.2g for this one-day's meal plan alone- well over TWICE the daily carbohydrate intake you recommend throughout the book (FOUR-TIMES the amount, if you go by your lower recommendation of 20g carbs per day).

Examples from the text, for reference:

p. 109, paragraph 2:"For the duration of your weight loss period, we ask that you limit your total carbohydrate intake to 20 to 35 grams."(while it doesn't specify "per day" here, elsewhere you do indicate no more than 40 grams during any 24-hour period).

p. 109, paragraph 3:"In other words, more than 40 grams of carbohydrate in any form will trigger your overproduction of insulin and return you to the weight gain cycle you know so well." (again, based upon other references, this indicates "per-day").

p.111, paragraph 3:"Be advised, however, that regardless of total calories consumed, carbohydrate intake for the day should never exceed 40 grams."

Which begs the following question:"How can any reader reasonably trust the advice given, when the numbers for your own daily meal plans don't even come close to remaining within your stated limitations for daily carbohydrate intake?

Secondly, it took me over an hour-and-a-half to determine the actual carbohydrate amounts listed for this one day's meal plan listed above alone, since it required me to constantly flip back-and-forth between the meal plan listing (which DOESN'T indicate any carbohydrate/protein/fat information), the recipes (which are also difficult to track down and which also don't list any carbohydrate/protein/fat information for any of the ingredients) and the Appendix (which doesn't include information on all the items in the recipes and, even if it does, does not give information equivalent to the amounts the recipes call for).

It would be a FAR more usable resource if the information was:

a. more comprehensive, including carb/protein/fat amounts listed right along-side meal plan and recipe ingredients;

b.more logically presented, so that a reader doesn't have to shift back-and-forth between the meal plans, the recipes (which are also hard to locate), and random information sprinkled throughout the text itself (such as the information on boullion, which is not in the index, but only in a separate section I was able to locate) and

c.constructed to stay within it's own set of stated parameter guidelines.

For example, the appendix lists "1 celery stalk" as having 2g carbohydrates, but the recipe for "Salmon Salad Sandwich" calls for "1 tbsp of chopped celery."How are you supposed to make the conversion between "1 celery stalk" and "1 tbsp of chopped celery?," in order to evaluate that "all-important" carb-per-day total?And while "1 tbsp of "chopped chives" is listed in the Appendix, "1 tbsp of onion" called for in the recipe is not and "green pepper," which is also called for in the recipe, is not even on the Appendix under vegetables at all! (nor, by the way, are mushrooms, which are called for in a separate recipe).

The fundamental question is this:If "more than 40 grams of carbohydrate in any form will trigger your overproduction of insulin and return you to the weight gain cycle you know so well," as you state on page 109 and your own meal plan doesn't even maintain those guidelines, then how on Earth can the Insulin Diet program that you recommend possibly accomplish the weight loss goals that you claim?The figures simply don't add up.Either your statements regarding a daily limit of 40g carbohydrate are incorrect, or else your meal plans simply do not work, according to the parameters you yourself have indicated.

I'd love to receive clarification on this issue at your earliest convenience, since I do want to get a handle on the effects of added weight on the symptoms for Type II Diabetes.However, I can only do that if I have complete confidence in the logic of the information that's being presented.As it is, my confidence in the program is shaky, since the figures on how to improve my figure just don't figure.

I look forward to your reply.

5-0 out of 5 stars It Really Works
OK, this is less about the book than it is about the diet.It works.I have tried everything including Atkins and Weight Watchers.I had 15 pounds to lose.When my doctor said elevated blood sugar was the only thing he could find to explain why I wasn't losing the weight, I bought this book.Now, it is NOT an 'eat all you want of certain foods' diet.And sometimes I've been hungry.But it is easy to follow, not the least complicated and there's no measuring (aside from knowing what 3-4 ounces of meat/chicken/fish looks like, and 1/2 cup of fruit/vegetable.)I'm down 14 1/2 pounds.One caviat: since I didn't have a lot of weight to lose (I'm guessing this is the reason) it's taken me awhile.But it's the only thing that has worked.Right now I'm slowly re-introducing grains (bread, brown rice) and the loss continues (this was a problem with Atkins - the minute I ate a dinner roll, the weight came back). It really works. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars DTour Diet COOKBOOK
This is an excellent companion piece to the DTOUR DIET.
Once you've gone through the recipes in the DIET book and are comfortable with the mix-n-match approach, this cookbook gets you many more recipes that are tasty and easy to prepare.

3-0 out of 5 stars a little disappointed
the book was new as stated, but I was a little disappointed in the contents. It is an unrealistic diet for my husband. It does contain a lot of useful information about diabeties for someone new at this medical problem.

2-0 out of 5 stars Recipes with too many and not-on-hand ingredients
I didn't find the recipe portion of this book to be beneficial since most of these recipes call for items that I don't usually stock in my pantry or refrigerator.It would be okay if the same ingredients were used in several of the recipes, then I wouldn't mind purchasing these food items since I would be using them up in other recipes.That's not the case, you have to purchase items that you normally would not have on hand in your kitchen and then it would take a long to finish them.I have other recipe books for people with diabetes that are MUCH better than this one.

2-0 out of 5 stars OK

5-0 out of 5 stars The Diabetes DTOUR Diet Cookbook
The Diabetes DTOUR Diet Cookbook is broken down into three parts.Part one is an introduction to the DTOUR diet.Part two is the recipe section.Part three is full of additional resources like sample menus and eating out suggestions.

The recipes are broken down into Appetizers, Breakfasts, Soups & Sandwiches, Salads & Sides, Meats & Poultry, Seafood, Vegetarian, and Sweets & Treats.Each chapter contains a number of beautiful, full color photographs of some of the recipes included.Each recipe is written on one page with no carry over to the next page which makes it very easy to follow and to cook from.

The recipes are very well thought out and include an ingredients list and easy to follow, numbered directions.Recipes also include nutrition information including calories, protein, carbohydrates, fat, sat fat, cholesterol, sodium, fiber, calcium & omega-3's.There are also notations included throughout to let the reader know which recipes are quick to make.

I was extremely happy to find out that the cookbook doesn't use artificial sweeteners in its recipes.The recipes use traditional sweeteners like honey, granulated sugar and confectioners sugar.The recipes do generally recommend using ingredients that are low fat and low sodium which makes sense in a diet cookbook.

A number of the recipes have sections with suggestions on how the recipe can be made ahead or stored for future use.This is a great help for busy cooks who don't have a lot of time in the kitchen. I also enjoyed the notations that let me know how I could use up any leftovers from the meal or what else I should serve with it for side dishes.

I loved the variety of different types of recipes.I found old family favorites like New England Clam Chowder along with exotic sounding dishes like Sesame Ginger Tuna Kabobs.There are man pleasing recipes like Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast with Root Vegetables and kid pleasing recipes like Ranch Chicken Fingers.Not to mention all the yummy desserts in there to please ME like the Milk Chocolate Panna Cotta! Oh boy now that sounds good!
