Diet plays a central (even the central) role in how every person with diabetes manages his or her condition each day. While much is known about diabetes, exactly what everyone who has the condition should be eating continues to generate enormous debate among medical and nutrition professionals. Now, in Eating for Diabetes, nutritional therapist Jane Frank provides a complete overview of the best diet for people with diabetes. Based on the very latest diabetes nutrition research, Frank provides nutritional guidelines (including detailed information on the glycemic index and glycemic load), a menu planner, shopping advice, and over 125 delicious, nutritious recipes that cover every meal of the day: breakfast, snacks and drinks, soups and starters, beans and grains, poultry and fish, vegetables and salads, and desserts. Frank puts particular emphasis on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and provides with each recipe a complete nutritional analysis, including its GI and GL levels. This all-in-one up-to-date cookbook and healthful eating guide is an important, vital new addition to the diabetes cookbook shelf.
