Product Description

From the Back Cover

When you were diagnosed with diabetes, did you get advice to avoid sugar and lose weight with no further guidance? Were you ever given a preprinted meal plan prescribing a certain number of calories a day, but you didn't know what to do next? This book will help you fill in the blanks by supplying you with important information about eating healthier and controlling your diabetes.

A food and nutrition super-resource for people with diabetes, The Diabetes Food & Nutrition Bible is written by Hope S. Warshaw, a certified diabetes educator and registered dietitian, and Robyn Webb, an expert in all things culinary and healthy. This book brings you up to date on meal planning, carb counting, vitamins, minerals, and the best ways to prepare healthy, delicious meals.

It includes more than 100 recipes featuring 20 Nutrition Superstars complete with nutritional information, exchanges, and carb counts. There are selections on:

  • Meal Planning Approaches -- Portion Control (the size of your servings)

  • How to Find a Dietitian -- Much More

Format:Paperback
Now that the condition called "pre-diabetic" has been recognized by the medical profession, even more people need information on meals, recipes and menu planning to aid in blood glucose control. I have just recently been diagnosed as pre- or "borderline" diabetic. Pre-diabetes and diabetes are medical conditions that are vastly under the control of the patient. We have all heard that losing weight and increasing exercise are vital to controlling diabetes. At this point I have read about six books on diabetes and this one is by far the best. Some of the books were a complete waste of money, in my opinion; for example, "Tell Me What to Eat if I Have Diabetes" was for processed and fast food junkies. All of the books present information on goals for blood glucose levels, what are carbohydrates, etc. But for me, I needed help with menu planning, balancing proteins, carbos, fats, calories, increasing fiber, etc.
"The Diabetes Bible" does have workable recipes - the ones I have made were very tasty. The biggest shock comes when you actually measure the serving sizes specified. A 4-ounce apple did not exist in my grocery store - they were all 8 ounces. So, if you follow their menu plans (I used the 1,200 to 1,400 calorie plan), you can eat only half that apple. It is amazing how small a half-cup portion of cooked vegetables is or two ounces of lean protein is an incredibly tiny piece (I once virtuously ate a small fish fillet, only to find out that I had consumed "four exchanges"). And one cup of milk is only a few swallows.

My biggest complaint about the book is that many menus rely on reduced fat cheeses, "lite" sour cream and margarine, although they do admit you can used the real thing, but (obviously) eat even less of it.
It is no lie to say that controlling pre-diabetes or diabetes is a heck of a lot of work. Given the risks of not controlling these conditions - eye damage, peripheral neuropathy, risk of heart attack and stroke - patient motivation to lose weight, increase exercise, control blood pressure and blood glucose, reduce cholesterol, etc. should be high, but it certainly is no day at the beach. The "Diabetes Bible" at least gave me some place to start.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bible?? The book is less then a inch thick! July 17 2006
By Kelleymac - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Maybe its the beginners bible and not the holy bible size they were talking about. This book is for beginners only!! The main part of this book is recipes. If I wanted that I would have bought a recipe book not a book to teach me about diabetes nutrition. This is not a complete anything!!! Try Prevention The Sugar Solution. I am returning the "bible". What a waste of my money having to return this book. Not sure why it has so many stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does Not Deliver What It Promises Aug. 15 2004
By Eric Rauschkolb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I would not recommend this book for people who are trying to get their life together after a diagnosis of diabetes. I bought this book because its subtitle is "A Complete Guide to Planning, Shopping, Cooking, and Eating". It is none of those things.
I was particularly interested in the SHOPPING promise because I find that to be the most difficult part of managing my diet. Other books didn't have anything helpful, and despite its promise, this book doesn't either. One has to read through every single recipe, write down the ingredients of what you want to make, and then go out and get it. Just like every other book. So tell me: how does this help with "shopping"? I expected lists of basic staples in a diabetic's diet. There should be lists of "must-haves" for your pantry. This book lies about what it contains, and is sadly lacking in what it needs.
An expensive mistake, don't buy it.
