Diabetes: Eat Your Way to Better Health by Dale Pinnock

In this title, Dale investigates the explosion in diabetes and attempts to find out why and what you can do about it. The title is intended to help relieve both type- 1 and type-2 diabetes - using nutrition alongside conventional medicine - but, importantly, Dale believes diet alone can heal type-2 diabetes. In the first half of the book, Dale unpicks the physiology and anatomy of diabetes, showing how the modern diet causes insulin resistance and - ultimately - type-2 diabetes. But his mission is to correct that and, in the second half of the book, he provides the delicious tools to do so. A chart of low-GI foods will help you to get 'carb-smart'. Start the day with an Avocado and cheddar omelette with spicy salsa, or enjoy a speedy Chicken and lentil curry. Serve friends Tilapia fillets with pea, mint and feta mash and tomato salad, or even try a low-GI Cheesecake for pudding. Learn Dale's secrets for yourself and successfully eat your way to avoiding - or relieving - diabetes.
