When you were diagnosed with diabetes, did you get advice to avoid sugar and lose weight with no further guidance? Were you ever given a preprinted meal plan prescribing a certain number of calories a day, but you didn't know what to do next? This book will help you fill in the blanks by supplying you with important information about eating healthier and controlling your diabetes.
A food and nutrition super-resource for people with diabetes, The Diabetes Food and Nutrition Bible is written by Hope S. Warshaw, a certified diabetes educator and registered dietitian, and Robyn Webb, an expert in all things culinary and healthy.
