Reviews - What do customers think about American Dietetic Association Guide to Eating Right When You Have Diabetes?

Informatively Fair  Mar 21, 2008
Family memeber with diabetes currently came to reside within our household and not being sure of the disease we found this book a fair informative guideline to helping the family member with the control of their sugar and keep the other memebers lifes unchanged but helped us all eat healthier.
Okay, but there are probably better titles  Dec 26, 2007
The information in the book was okay, but the exchange lists and diet information we formatted poorly and were a little simplistic. That was the main reason I bought the book so I was a little disappointed. On the other hand, it did contain some good basic info.
An excellent resource  Oct 6, 2007
This book stands out from others because goes beyond just telling you WHAT to do to manage your diabetes, it also tells you the WHY. By helping you understand the reasoning behind dietary and exercise guidelines, the author gives you the knowledge you need to make intelligent decisions when presented with situations not covered by guidelines alone. She seems to understand that everything isn't always black and white in life, and you have to make choices based on many factors.

I'm newly diagnosed. Since I'm not on any medications (and hope to keep it that way for as long as possible), the two tools I have to manage my diabetes are exercise and diet. This book addresses the diet aspect very well, while touching on the importance of exercise. It's not a scientific text, so it doesn't go into excruciating detail. It's an easy read. She helps you understand how the body works without diabetes, and then explains what happens differently when you have diabetes. You'll come to understand how different foods affect your blood glucose level - and WHY. Which allows you to understand and develop your own meal plan if you don't have access to a nutritionist. If you do, you'll better understand why your nutritionist makes the recommendations she does, and you will have the knowledge to discuss various options with her.

This may not be the first thing you want to read if you've just discovered you need to live in a way that manages your blood glucose levels. There are higher level overview books; educational websites run by the Joslin Center or American Diabetes Association; or better yet, diabetes management programs taught by diabetes educators and nutritionists at most local hospital that will give you a solid foundation. Ask your doctor about local programs if he hasn't recommended it to you already.

With that knowledge under your belt, this is an excellent book to take you down to the next level of detail.
