   Great information
While searching for more information about how to eat to avoid diabetes, I thought this book might do the trick. More than mere fluff and generalizations, this book helped me understand the proper way to eat the combinations and why they work in order to prevent diabetes. The balance of exercise and balanced eating became clear and the suggestions and recipes were easy to understand and incorporate into my daily life. This book has enabled that.
   More brilliance!
Just started reading it and already learned that sugar was our childhood bribery and now adult comfort during stress.
   Seems to be a weight loss screed
Too much medical information, too much weight loss info, too much attitude. I don 't need to figure out if I have prediabetes, my doctor has already done that. I don 't need a lecture about my weight. I don 't need to know how this will affect my sex life. I need to know why some carbs affect my blood sugar more than others, even when the Count is the same. Do I need to check my blood until a certain point, so that I can delay eating during the “dawn effect ” time frame? I am looking for practical answers and useful suggestions, not that you should buy junk food.
   Money well spent.
I am impressed with this book ''. I am in the process of reading it, but so far it is very helpful and easy to follow. I am non-Pediabetic and needed some answers. It beat all the chasing around the internet that I have been doing. In my opinion, the series Dummies has always been a good one.
   Print too small.
The print is way too small for an older person to read. And crammed up too much info. Bullet points on dummies books need to be. For a non-medical person, this is too complex.
   I am an RN and this book was recommended by a diabetic patient
I am an RN and this book was recommended by a diabetic patient and I found it very informative as a shortcut for teaching my patients.
   Good start.....
It helped to answer a lot of questions and help to make things easier to see to understand what is needed for our health care now.
   Excellent Source of Information
I've appreciated learning how I got to this point, and the author explains several methods for dealing with it. It is written by a doctor and he writes like a layperson so that you can understand what he is talking about. I recommend this highly if you, like me, have been told that you are pre-diabetic or even if you want to avoid this diagnosis altogether.
