Our modern diet, high in low-quality carbohydrates, is damaging our bodies - producing a constant overload of sugar in our bloodstream that clogs up our arteries and piles hidden fat into our internal organs. The result has been a doubling in the number of type 2 diabetics as well as a surge in those with a potentially hazardous condition - prediabetes. It is now known that even moderately elevated blood sugar levels can trigger heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer.
Scientists have recently demonstrated that you can prevent and even reverse type 2 diabetes with a simple change in diet and lifestyle. Drawing on the work of professor Roy Taylor - one of the UK's foremost diabetes experts - and his own experience as a onetime diabetic, Dr. Michael Mosley presents a groundbreaking, science-based eight-week plan for diabetics who want to reverse their condition (and then stay off medication). He also offers a more flexible regime for people interested in the extensive health benefits to be gained from lowering their blood sugar levels and shedding dangerous fat.

My wife, a diabetic, bought this book to see it would help her get off her diabetic medicines. and to lose weight. I was so amazed at her results, that I bought and have started following advice. She is lost so successful losing weight that she has now set goal to get to her weight from 26 years ago (pre-marriage). I so like this idea. She no longer needs to take her diabetic or blood pressure medicine. Dr. was so impressed, she wanted to know about book, so she could recommend to other patients. An added was my wife rosacea vastly cleared up, which she has suffered with all her life. I highly recommend this book.
loved the entire book. everything was explained in simple terms and concepts. this is a must read/listen for anyone with diabetes symptoms.
This was by far one of the best self help books I have read in controlling the eating habits and helping in becoming more aware and disciplined with the diabetes condition.
The book is straight forward and easy to listen to with the basic foundational information to get started.
I would strongly suggest if you will power is anything but type A to enroll into a local support group for best results.
I started the program with a very aggressive 4 day fast (not for the faint of heart) as it kickstarted my system and made me respect the food with every bit.. The book dose not cover this material but his other materials touch on it.
best wishes on your journey.. its is a 100 % recommended just wish it had a built in website blog etc as diabetes is so misunderstood and the doctor's are caught in the middle of big farmacutical and insurance protocol. Everything they discuss about the reactions of others is correctly portrayed.
go start and live healthy
this is an excellent new take on how to manage your blood sugar. I am so tired of hearing about food pyramid in the past how it really screwed me up this is seems much much better.
