Did you know that more than a third of American adults have prediabetes along with the more than 20 million Americans who currently live with type 2 diabetes? These statistics are scary and sad. But, if you are one of the many suffering with diabetes there is hope and help. Everyone can take action to improve their help every single day and prevent diabetes. The most important step you can take if you have diabetes or prediabetes is to learn how to eat healthier.
Hope Warshaw’s Diabetes Meal Planning Made Easy is now in its 5th edition. This is the go-to resource for people with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. This new edition is updated with the latest ADA nutrition recommendations for diabetes and the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
This book doesn’t apply to me, but if I did have diabetes or was at risk for diabetes, I would want to have Diabetes Meal Planning Made Easy in my home library.
Diabetes Meal Planning Made Easy is a comprehensive, user-friendly, practical guide to what people need to know and the actions they need to take. It gives readers information to plan, shop, read nutrition labels, eat healthier meals (at home and on-the-go), lose weight and keep it off effectively. With over 80,000 copies in print, it has been the go-to diabetes nutrition guidebook for more than 20 years.
