Author(s): Neal Barnard, M.D.
The original Dr. Neal Barnard's Program For Reversing Diabetes is one of Rodale's strongest backlist sellers with nearly two hundred thousand copies sold since 2006 and several hundred copies continuing to be sold per month. By following Dr. Barnard's revolutionary plan, readers have been able to cut back on or eliminate medications and reduce the risk of complications, while experiencing weight loss, increased energy, and a new lease on life. Before Dr. Barnard's scientific breakthrough, most health professionals believed that once you developed diabetes, you were stuck with it-and could anticipate one health issue after another, from worsening eyesight and nerve symptoms to heart and kidney problems. But as Dr. Barnard's groundbreaking work has revealed, this simply is not true. Dr. Barnard has shown that it is often possible to improve insulin sensitivity and tackle type 2 diabetes by following his step-by-step plan, which includes a healthful vegan diet with plenty of recipes to get started, an exercise guide, advice about taking supplements and tracking progress, and troubleshooting tips.
The scientifically proven, life-changing program introduces a style of eating that will improve how people with type 2 diabetes respond to insulin, addressing the defining symptom of diabetes and allowing people with diabetes to control blood sugar more effectively than with conventional dietary regimens for people with diabetes.
Revised and updated, this new edition of Dr. Neal Barnard's bestselling program to reverse diabetes through diet features the latest research, fresh success stories, and an all-new preface.
