Many people with type 2 diabetes believe their disease is a permanent condition. They assume the best they can hope for is good management of their diabetes, including a complicated diet complete with charts, scales, and special "diabetic" foods.
Today, reports of dramatic improvements, and even reversal, of type 2 diabetes are giving new hope to people with this disease. People are beginning to recognize that type 2 diabetes is not the result of insulin. It is the product of diet and lifestyle choices that cause the body to become resistant to insulin. If you suffer from this illness, your health can be vastly improved or, in some cases, completely restored by making appropriate lifestyle changes.
The good news is that the diet that works best to defeat diabetes is based on simple, whole foods. And the other lifestyle changes you need to make - exercising and reducing stress - can be fun, as well as good for you. Defeating Diabetes will guide you through the practical steps you need to take to construct a diet and lifestyle that really works.
Includes numerous charts, graphs, and sidebars.
