    Despite what you might have heard, diabetes is not a lifelong condition. It does not have to shorten your life span or result in high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney failure, blindness, or other life-threatening ailments. In fact, most type 2 diabetics can get off medication and become 100 percent healthy in just a few simple steps. And using these same steps, most type 1 diabetics can cut their insulin in half and maintain excellent health and quality of life into old age. In The End of Diabetes, Dr. Joel Fuhrman shows how you can prevent and reverse diabetes and its related symptoms and lose weight in the process. The End of Diabetes is a radical idea wrapped in a simple plan: eat better and end diabetes. While the established medical protocol aims to control diabetes by limiting carbohydrate intake, monitoring glucose levels, and prescribing bottomless doses of medicine, Dr. Fuhrman believes this long-standing approach to fighting type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes is wrong—and possibly fatal. Designed for anyone ready to enjoy a healthier and longer life, Dr. Fuhrman’s plan is based on a single formula: Your Health Future (H) = Nutrients (N) / Calories (C). Foods with a high nutrient density, according to Dr. Fuhrman, turn our bodies into the miraculous, self-healing machines they can be, which results in significant weight loss, improved health, and ultimately, the end of type 2 diabetes and other diseases. In engaging, direct, and easy-to-follow language, The End of Diabetes supplies the science and clinical evidence to prove that type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure are not inevitable consequences of aging. They are reversible and preventable. In addition, Dr. Fuhrman presents evidence that type 1 diabetes does not have to mean inevitable devastating complications or an early death. Type 1 diabetics can take control of their health with Dr. Fuhrman’s plan. This simple and effective plan offers great food, starts working right away, and puts you on a direct path to a longer, better, fuller, disease-free life. Diabetics and their doctors must read this book—it will save lives and change the face of diabetic care.

    “Diabetes could have killed me. Instead, it saved my life.”—Sherri Shepherd The day that actress, comedian, and cohost of The View Sherri Shepherd was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (“The Big D”), she didn’t see it coming. Sherri had spent years battling excess weight, ignoring the warning that she was prediabetic, avoiding doctors, and denying some very clear signs that a diabetes diagnosis was imminent. Even watching the disease take her mother’s life at the age of forty-one didn’t sound the alarm for Sherri. But with a diagnosis in hand and a child of her own, Sherri knew she needed to take a cold, hard look at the way she was living. She could either completely overhaul her life and reevaluate her relationship to food and exercise, or continue on a path that could leave her son growing up without his mother. The choice was easy—but putting the choice into action was a little more difficult. If you’re one of the 100 million Americans diagnosed with prediabetes or diabetes each year, or one of the 130 million people who are overweight and at risk but don’t know where to start, Plan D can provide life-changing results. Here, Sherri Shepherd breaks down the basics of the science of diabetes, explains how reversing your insulin resistance (the cause of type 2 diabetes) is the key, and offers support, humor, and the action plan you need to get results. With this medically supported plan, Sherri was able to lose forty pounds and keep it off. Through three key simple but effective strategies centered on diet, exercise, and taking control of the emotions that lead to poor food choices, Sherri offers readers a way to lose weight and control diabetes without feeling deprived, or chained to a strict, lifeless way of living. Plan D is flexible, sensible, and straight-forward, and it works wherever you are on the spectrum—whether you’re struggling to lose weight, are in the danger zone of prediabetes and looking to turn things around, or have already been diagnosed with diabetes. With the help of her doctor and a support group of family and close friends, Sherri changed her life—and with Plan D, you can too.

    Most people view diabetes as a dead-end street, once you receive a diabetes diagnosis, your only option is to manage the symptoms with a restricted diet, close monitoring of blood sugar, and expensive medications. Dr. Colbert shows that diabetes can be treated instead through safe, natural means, like healthy food and vitamins rather than strictly relying on prescription drugs. He shows you how to manage your weight and your glucose intake with a whole-body approach, using nutritional supplements along with dietary and lifestyle changes to lose weight, repair cell damage, improve insulin function, and reduce the side effects from prescription drugs, many of which rob nutrients from the body and cause additional symptoms. Based on the same life-changing principles of the low-glycemic, high-fiber eating plan provided in Dr. Colbert’s New York Times bestselling book, Dr. Colbert’s “I Can Do This” Diet, this book adapts that plan in a way that makes it ideal for diabetics who need to manage their glucose levels and their weight.

    Based on breakthrough studies, Diabetes without Drugs reveals how people with diabetes can reduce their need for prescription medication and minimize the disease’s effect on the body. Most doctors consider diabetes a one-way street—once you have it, your only option is to manage the symptoms with a restricted diet, close monitoring of blood sugar, and expensive medications. Pharmacist Suzy Cohen shows that diabetes can be treated instead through safe, natural means, like food and vitamins, rather than strictly relying on prescription drugs. She shifts the focus away from glucose management to a whole body approach, using supplements, minerals, and dietary changes to lose weight, repair cell damage, improve insulin function, and reduce the side effects from prescription drugs, many of which rob nutrients from the body and cause additional symptoms. This five-step program uses natural alternatives, such as drinking nutrition-packed green drinks, adding vitamin D and anti-inflammatory supplements, increasing fiber intake, and including minerals in the diet to help restore the body’s own supply of insulin. Diabetes without Drugs explains how patients can protect their heart, kidneys, eyesight, and limbs from the damage often caused by diabetes and shows the impact that the right foods and the right supplements can make in reducing blood sugar levels, aiding weight loss, and restoring vibrant health to everyone with diabetes.

    The statistics are staggering. Thirteen million Americans have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes; another 5.2 million don’t know that they have it. During the past thirty years the diabetes rate has tripled, and each year about two hundred thousand people die from complications of the disease. But Type 2 diabetes is largely preventable. Find out how you can avoid becoming a statistic. As a respected physician and pioneer in the field of complementary medicine, Dr. Robert C. Atkins recognized early on that diabetes and obesity are twin epidemics, and that the way to reverse both is to permanently change the way people eat. Yet much of the mainstream medical establishment continues to advocate the treatment of diabetes with insulin and other drugs, while recommending a diet high in carbohydrates, including sugar, which raises your blood sugar. What you’ll learn from reading Atkins Diabetes Revolution is that rather than correcting your metabolism, such a diet can actually increase your risk of developing diabetes and heart disease. The Atkins Blood Sugar Control Program (ABSCP) helps you identify the metabolic signposts that indicate trouble long before the onset of Type 2 diabetes so you can stop it in its tracks. If you already have the disease, the ABSCP offers you and your physician a strategy for weight management and blood-sugar control, while minimizing your exposure to drugs. Atkins Diabetes Revolution presents a comprehensive lifestyle program, including diet, exercise, and nutrient supplementation. The book also contains meal plans, recipes, a fitness routine, and case studies. This groundbreaking book, a fitting tribute to Dr. Atkins, tackles one of the greatest health challenges you and your family may ever face.
