As a newly diagnosed type II diabetic, I did a lot of research on how to "tackle" this disease the right way. I discovered that a vegan diet has recently proven to have the best and fastest results in defeating and reversing diabetes. This book explains diabetes in layman's terms, and is based on scientific studies involving both type I and type II diabetics. Already a vegetarian for several years, I found the move to veganism relatively easy, and saw immediate results. My blood sugar is under control, I've lost weight, and my blood pressure is back down to normal. Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes offers a simple-to-follow plan that requires none of the usual counting of various food groups or calories. You are never hungry, and the bonus for me is that most of my cravings have disappeared.
