From Mayo Clinic, a leading authority in health and nutrition, comes The Mayo Clinic Diabetes Diet, the reliable plan you need to lose weight and help you control your diabetes.

This Diet is no fad, but a solid, common-sense approach brought to you by an organization that is an award-winning health information resource.

"Expressly designed to help those with diabetes develop healthy eating habits and lose weight, this easy-to-read guide compiled by the doctors at the renowned Mayo Clinic is a helpful and informative resource that certainly achieves those goals. Beginning with an overview of the disease, the authors clearly explain the importance of weight management and encourage readers to begin changing their eating habits immediately and with a minimum of drama. Tips on portion control, simple exercise activities, and finding a healthy weight help diabetics stay on track. And if they do slip up, the authors offer motivation, understanding, and encouragement. Those looking for recipes will be sorely disappointed, as the book offers only a handful; the emphasis here is on leading a healthy lifestyle and developing healthier eating habits, whether at home or in restaurants. Some may find the book's tone and layout to be a little patronizing — it's written at an elementary school level — but those who've recently been diagnosed with diabetes will likely find it to be a welcome resource.
