Synopses & Reviews
The New Glucose Revolution for Diabetes is the first comprehensive guide to using the glycemic index to control type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, and more. The book features the latest, most accurate information with new findings by the authors. It includes GI-based recipes and menus for type 1, type 2, prediabetes, gestational diabetes, and juvenile diabetes, as well as related conditions like obesity and celiac disease, plus practical dietary guidance on sugar, sweeteners, alcohol, snacking, and eating out.
- Major addition to NY Times best-selling series: The New Glucose Diabetes Revolution is an important addition to the best-selling New Glucose Revolution series, which has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide. An unprecedented, comprehensive guide to the utility of the glycemic index in the dietary management of diabetes, this should become an instant classic on the shelf.
- A revolution more than twenty-five years in the making: Since the initial development of the glycemic index in 1980, the authors' and others' medical research has steadily confirmed how making low-GI food choices is a vital dietary tool in managing diabetes. This is in direct opposition to using a dietary system of carbohydrate exchanges to control diabetes, which for years had been advocated by medical organizations. Wholly unique among diabetes books, The New Glucose Diabetes Revolution presents, for the first time, the authoritative guide to using the GI to manage diabetes conditions.
- Glycemic index widely and increasingly endorsed for people with diabetes: The GI is endorsed in clinical dictary guidelines by the Joslin Diabetes Center and by many prominent international diabetes organizations. In its clinical practice recommendations for 2006, the American Diabetes Association noted the benefit of the glycemic index for the first time.
- A scientifically proven treatment road map: The book features the latest, most accurate information with new findings by the authors. Includes GI-based recipes and menus for type 1, type 2, prediabetes, gestational diabetes, and juvenile diabetes, as well as related conditions like obesity and celiac disease, plus practical dietary guidance on sugar, sweeteners, alcohol, snacking, and eating out.
