Product Description

Product Description

Science now knows that starches are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to the nation's weight problems. Starches spike our blood sugar levels, which wreaks havoc on our bodies and make it near impossible to lose the pounds. Unfortunately, many of our favorite foods such as pasta, bread and rice are the worst offenders! But who wants to cut out these delicious dishes and feel deprived? The Sugar Blockers Diet solves this dilemma by highlighting common foods with the power to squash blood sugar spikes when eaten 30 minutes before a starchy meal. This innovative eating plan opens up a world of previously forbidden foods to people with diabetes. Readers can enjoy starchy pastas, cakes, and more in moderation when they remember to take a dose of everyday foods like nuts, pickles, or a glass of wine. There's no need to count calories, carbs, fat, sodium, or anything else on the Sugar Blockers Eating Plan. By emphasizing low-glycemic load and sugar-blocking foods, readers automatically cut calories and lose weight, improving their blood sugar, cholesterol, mood, and energy along the way.

This is a great book for anyone who is trying to lower their blood sugar. I've started using the plan outlined in this book and I think it is making a difference. The charts in the back of the book with foods and their glycemic index is also very helpful. I refer to it all the time. There is lots of good information and it's easy to follow.

HASH(0x9c961d44) out of 5 stars I Like It Jan. 7 2013
By N. Thomas - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I don't know if I'd call this a diet book. I gave it a four star (instead of a three) because he goes into a lot of detail about how the foods he recommends block sugar. I found that to be really interesting and have not seen that anywhere before (i.e. some foods block sugar in our intestine and some work on our livers and still others work in our stomach).

I can attest to the fact that the vinegar sugar block and the extra virgin olive oil do work. I take a table spoon of olive oil a day broken up in three teaspoons a day in three meals to control my crazy craving for sugar and it works wonders. I just don't want candy anymore when I have my olive oil. I've switched to a salad dressing also that is mostly vinegar and oil and that helps as well.

I do recommend the book, but he talks a lot about eating low G.I. too and the sugar blockers are to be used when you cannot eat low G.I.

Anyone who is borderline diabetic or has diabetes, this book has a wealth of wonderful information to help you gain control of your glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides, etc. I lost 6# the first 2 weeks following this very easy eating style change. It's not really a diet, it's just what foods to eat first. Very easy to follow.

This book is incredible. You can do it! It really works. I was working out and counting calories and couldn't lose weight because I was having blood sugar problems. I've lost 6 lb. and 5 inches in 3 weeks. I don't feel tired anymore! No more low blood sugars!

HASH(0x9c9252c4) out of 5 stars EYE-OPENING July 11 2013
By Ellen G. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Tells how to control BG levels easily by using such foods as vinegar & oil (read "salad"); by eating food in a certain order; and by exercise.

Explains why/how these methods work, so that the reader is convinced & understands the rationale behind the conclusions, rather than blindly following instructions.

Presents his pertinent background information to establish his credibility as a source.

I'd recommend this book without qualification to anyone, but especially to Type 2 diabetics.
