Diane Kress, author of The Metabolism Miracle, the New York Times Bestseller that has changed the way people lose weight, get healthy and feel great around the world, now releases her groundbreaking book to help millions of people with pre diabetes or type 2 diabetes. The Diabetes Miracle is sure to become the “essential guidebook” for self management of this epidemic disease as it helps readers prevent or control type 2 diabetes using little or no medication.
Kress, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator who herself has type 2 diabetes, has over 30 years experience working with patients to solve weight and blood sugar issues. Although trained traditionally, she ultimately realized that the “recommended” diets for diabetes really didn’t work! Over time, patients trying to adhere to these complicated and restrictive diets actually continued to gain weight and required more and more medications for diabetes as well as cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, depression. Some patients ultimately required insulin injections.
After years of painstaking research and development, as well as face- to- face counseling of over 6000 patients, she created The Diabetes Miracle: a 3-step, scientifically based, carbohydrate balanced plan that is instantly more effective than any other diet to control blood sugar and allow for weight loss and decreased medications. The reason? The Diabetes Miracle “rests, resets, and retrains” the body to react normally to changes in blood glucose while it decreases insulin resistance.
The Diabetes Miracle will be your “go to” diabetes reference for the latest information on the epidemic of diabetes, diagnosis, symptoms (even the lesser known “quiet symptoms”), medications, complications, the when, where, and how of blood glucose monitoring, target blood sugar ranges, lab tests, sample menus plus a complete section on exercise for the person with diabetes.
Real-life case studies and many helpful FAQ sections make this book enjoyable to read, easy to understand, and make diabetes control and management a reality!
