More About The Prediabetes Diet Plan by Hillary Wright; Elizabeth M. Ward
 
 
 
Overview
A practical, empowering guide to managing and reversing prediabetes through diet and exercise, from a registered dietitian.

Affecting 79 million Americans, prediabetes often develops into full-blown type 2 diabetes, one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Increasingly diagnosed by doctors, prediabetes is a condition in which blood sugar levels are elevated, but not yet high enough to be labeled diabetes. While diabetes cannot be cured, prediabetes can be reversed, so it is critical to take action at an early stage.

In straightforward, jargon-free language, The Prediabetes Diet Plan explains insulin resistance (the underlying cause of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes) and offers a comprehensive strategy of diet and lifestyle change, which has been proven more effective than medication. With sections on meal planning, grocery shopping, dining out, supplements, and exercise, this book empowers you to make healthier everyday choices that can effect real change on your insulin levels and overall well-being.

Though registered dietician Wright (The PCOS Diet Book) focuses on prediabetes (a condition in which blood sugar levels are higher than normal) and diabetes, her recommendations can be applied by almost any adult. Wright’s latest book explains basic concepts of prediabetes, insulin-resistance conditions (such as metabolic syndrome and polycystic ovary syndrome), and diabetes, then delves into a more detailed discussion of insulin function, insulin resistance, and the metabolic processing of blood sugar, thus laying the groundwork for a series of comprehensive diet strategies. Wright guides readers in how to calculate carbs from calories, control portions, snack, and even dine out. Her smart suggestions are also applicable for those with, or concerned about, cardiovascular disease. In addition to tips about exercise, supplements, how to grocery shop, and read labels, Wright offers an extensive selection of sample meal plans and resources in this well-researched book. If there is one criticism, it’s that the title might restrict the book to a diabetic or pre-diabetic audience. Whether readers are looking for a prediabetes diet plan or for a no-nonsense strategy to better health, this book delivers. Agent: Judith Riven, Judith Riven Literary. (Nov.)
