Hi all,

I just learned today that I have diabetes.  My sugar levels, while higher than they should be, are not too high that I need medication.  My doctor suggested I try a low glycemic diet and come back in 12 weeks for another test. 

Can anyone recommend any books.  Diet, cooking, anything at all.  

Thanks, Diane

I 'm sorry about the diabetes, but you can get a handle on it if you're careful.

A good book I found is:

The NO S DIET by Reinhard Engels and Ben Kallen

ISBN# 978-0-399-534041

Hope this helps.

I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis.

Coming in late, but I highly recommend Dr. Bernsteins Diabetes Solution.  A friend of mine is one of his patients.  Dr. Bernstein practices what he preaches and my friend has normal blood glucose readings.

Thank  you.  I'm reading whatever I can get my hands on right now.  And changing my diet, of course.

The South Beach DIet is a low glycemic diet. See:


Good luck!
