Despite what you might have heard, diabetes is not a lifelong condition.
It does not have to shorten your life span or result in high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney failure, blindness, or other life-threatening ailments. In fact, most diabetics can get off medication and become 100 percent healthy in just a few simple steps. In The End of Diabetes, Dr. Joel Fuhrman shows how you can prevent and reverse diabetes and its related symptoms and lose weight in the process.
The End of Diabetes is a radical idea wrapped in a simple plan: Eat Better, End Diabetes. While the established medical protocol aims to control diabetes by limiting your carbohydrate intake, monitoring glucose levels, and prescribing bottomless doses of medicine, Dr. Fuhrman believes this long-standing approach to fighting diabetes is wrong - and possibly fatal.
Designed for anyone ready to enjoy a healthier and longer life, Dr. Fuhrman's plan is based on a single formula: Your Health Future (H) = Nutrients (N) / Calories (C). Foods with a high nutrient density, according to Dr. Fuhrman, turn our bodies into the miraculous, self-healing machines they can be, which results in significant weight loss, improved health, and, ultimately, the end of diabetes and other diseases.
In engaging, direct, and easy-to-follow language, The End of Diabetes supplies the science and clinical evidence to prove that diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure are not inevitable consequences of aging. They are reversible and preventable. This simple and effective plan offers great food, starts working right away, and puts you on a direct path to a longer, better, fuller, disease-free life.

I am recently diagnosed with Type 2 and this book; although profoundly difficult, brings new hope. Still, I had to stop myself countless times from turning this audiobook off due to the pretentious nasal delivery of the reader. The material is important enough to get through but I will reference my paper back copy.
Actually... Joel Fuhrman was quite good. I'd have him narrate the whole book. His summary at the end was quite refreshing and he did a good job of reading his own material.
The author brings passion and personal experience to this subject. His advice provides hope in contrast to the approaches of the traditional medical establishment. The stories of the successes of his patients make accomplishing the goal of reserving diabetes believable.
I heard the first 90 minutes and the only thing I could hear was "How awesome is my diet". I get it, it works but now move and tell me about the diet.
I find all fad diets exhausting. The term 'paleo' makes me grind my teeth. This book feels more rational. We all know what is healthy and what isn't but we rarely follow that diet. I appreciated the real examples of how this nutritarian way of eating had so radically improved people's lives
I started using the tips in this book and immediately my blood sugar dropped. In the first two days I stopped taking 2 of my diabetes medicines. Thank you dr. Fuhrman I can't wait to see what my future holds.
Excellent coverage of what a person needs to know about diabetes and how to eat to deal with it. A lot of what is covered regarding the optimal diet for health has been covered in his other books, but this book has more specifics regarding diabetes specifically. I'm a full-time, lifetime Nutritarian and I'm a total believer in Dr. Fuhrman's "eat to live" way of eating. It works, plain and simple.
As a dietetics student I have been reading a variety of weight loss books. Unlike so many others, which use skepticism of the medical community or small studies that have not been replicated, this book has the research and science to back it up. If you have diabetes or pre-diabetes pick up this book and take charge of your health.
It's good wisdom but I fear that for most people it will be too hard to follow. Truth is not always easy to swallow, but my intuition tells me there must be an easier more flexible way for long term
My kids look at me as if im going to shave my head and start a cult, each time they walk in the room and hear this book playing. im afraid they may start hoarding meat under their beds. If your not pre - diabetic, this diet is just too much! or rather too little, too fast.
