"Dr. Bernstein is a true pioneer in developing practical approaches to controlling a devastating disease that is growing at epidemic proportions in this country." —Barry Sears, Ph.D., author of The Zone.
In the midst of an obesity epidemic, Americans are in search of the perfect diet--one that will help them shed pounds quickly and make them feel their best.
Although some diets, like South Beach or Atkins, will lead to weight loss in the short term, they don’t teach dieters how to make the lifestyle change necessary to keep the pounds off. Such diets don’t remain faithful to the science behind low-carb eating, but instead allow the return of bad habits to undo their early benefits. THE DIABETES DIET (Little, Brown & Company; January 3, 2005; $24.95), by Richard K. Bernstein, M.D., however, is the diet that will teach Americans how to eat for life.
THE DIABETES DIET was designed for controlling blood sugars in diabetics, but its health and weight-management benefits apply to everyone. Focusing on protein, fat, and slow-acting carbohydrate, this plan prevents the blood sugar roller-coaster ride caused by a carbohydrate-heavy diet, which can result in obesity, increased blood pressure, and damage to the lining of the blood vessels. A diabetic himself for almost sixty years, Dr. Bernstein meticulously followed the guidelines of the American Diabetes Association, yet his health steadily deteriorated. It wasn’t until he devised his own, more effective method for regulating blood sugar that Dr. Bernstein started to enjoy a healthy life.
In addition to the basic science underlying the Diabetes Diet and its essential guidelines, THE DIABETES DIET offers over 100 mouthwatering recipes that will keep diabetics healthy and satisfied. Dr. Bernstein sought the expertise of chef Marcia Miele to provide recipes like Italian Wedding Soup, Mushrooms Stuffed with Sausage and Ricotta, and Peanut Butter Pie. Each recipe includes information about the amount of carbohydrate and protein per serving.
Together, the recipes and advice found in THE DIABETES DIET create the perfect guide for diabetes regulation and overall good health and longevity. THE DIABETES DIET is more than a low-carb diet: it’s a low-carb lifestyle.
