The Diabetes Diet: Dr. Bernstein’s Low-Carbohydrate Solution
by Richard K. Bernstein
If you have diabetes, diet is more than a lifestyle choice – it’s the key to controlling the course of your disease. Many diabetics struggle their entire lives to maintain a healthy weight and normal blood sugars, but the guidelines given by the American Diabetes Association have proven unhelpful in managing either of these. In The Diabetes Diet, Dr. Richard K. Bernstein serves up the groundbreaking low-carbohydrate approach to diabetes care that has enabled his patients to take command of their health with his Low-Carbohydrate Solution.
Dr. Bernstein himself is living proof of the success of his method. Diagnosed with diabetes at age twelve, he was a successful business executive and engineer when he happened to discover a way to normalize his blood sugars, which in turn reversed many of the complications he had suffered from for years. At the age of forty-five, he entered medical school in order to publish his findings and eventually treat other diabetics. His detailed plan for managing diabetes, Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution, became a national bestseller and a bible for diabetics seeking control of their disease.
Now, in The Diabetes Diet, Dr. Bernstein distills that wisdom to show how simple it can be to interrupt the cycle of obesity and insulin resistance and maintain a healthy weight-without giving up tasty meals. 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. With more than 100 delicious all-new recipes to help keep diabetics on track for life, The Diabetes Diet makes planning low-carb meals easy. Following the recipes and advice here will do more than help you shed a few pounds-it will set you on the road to a longer, healthier life.
