A practical, empowering guide to managing and reversing prediabetes through diet and exercise, from a registered dietitian. 

Affecting 79 million Americans, prediabetes often develops into full-blown type 2 diabetes, one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Increasingly diagnosed by doctors, prediabetes is a condition in which blood sugar levels are elevated, but not yet high enough to be labeled diabetes. While diabetes cannot be cured, prediabetes can be reversed, so it is critical to take action at an early stage.

In straightforward, jargon-free language, The Prediabetes Diet Plan explains insulin resistance (the underlying cause of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes) and offers a comprehensive strategy of diet and lifestyle change, which has been proven more effective than medication. With sections on meal planning, grocery shopping, dining out, supplements, and exercise, this book empowers you to make healthier everyday choices that can effect real change on your insulin levels and overall well-being.

In Eating to Beat Type 2 Diabetes, qualified nutritionist and esteemed author Sarah Flower offers a key message for those who either have or are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes: avoid processed grains, sugars and other foods, and opt instead for a balanced diet containing proper ingredients that are rich in natural fats and good-quality protein.

Sarah put her own clients suffering from type 2 diabetes onto this sugar-free, low-carb and high-fat regime with amazing results. They experienced weight loss, increased energy levels and - most importantly - they saw their blood sugar levels decrease to a normal range so that they were able to come off medication.

-Explains how to make the essential dietary changes to fight type 2 diabetes and the science behind them
-Provides a comprehensive 'go-to' list of good and bad foods
-Gives practical, easy-to-follow and utterly delicious family recipes which prove that changing your lifestyle and eating habits doesn't have to mean missing out on foods you love - from 'Easy low-carb pancakes' to 'Grain-free chicken Kiev'

Eating to Beat Type 2 Diabetes has been supported by Dr David Unwin and Dr Ian Lake. In 2016 Dr Unwin was both 'NHS Innovator of the year' and a finalist for 'Diabetes Team of the Year' in the British Medical Journal National Awards. Dr Ian Lake is medical advisor to diabetes.co.uk and founder member of The Public Health Collaboration, a charity dedicated to informing and implementing health decisions for better public health.
