Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes and Cookbook for Reversing Diabetes
Finally an approach to managing type 2 diabetes that is not based on pills or injections, but on food—the most delicious “prescription” you could imagine.
The newly updated Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes and a brand new companion cookbook, Dr. Neal Barnard’s Cookbook for Reversing Diabetes, outline a groundbreaking dietary approach to preventing, controlling, and even reversing diabetes.
The program is based on a series of research studies Dr. Barnard and his colleagues have conducted over the years, the latest funded by the National Institutes of Health. Published in the August 2006 issue of Diabetes Care, that study found Dr. Barnard’s program to be three times more effective than the American Diabetes Association dietary guidelines at controlling blood sugar.
Studies show that by adopting a low-fat, plant-based diet—free of all animal products and added vegetable oils—individuals can lower their cholesterol, reduce their blood pressure, and lose weight. Best of all, the diet doesn’t demand one count calories, cut portion sizes, or give up all carbohydrates. On the contrary, you can eat as much as you want.
Dr. Barnard explains how the diet actually alters what goes on in an individual’s cells. Rather than just compensate for malfunctioning insulin, like other treatment plans, Dr. Barnard’s program helps repair how the body uses insulin.
