Dr. Neal Barnard`s Program for Reversing Diabetes. Dr. Neal D Bernard. 2007. ISBN 9781594865282. I am always trying to hack my body to beat back diabetes. So far I have had lots of success. However Bernard talks about reversing diabetes without using drugs, which really piqued my interest. He is the first for me to have made a compelling argument as to why pre- diabetics like me can plateau. He advocates for those who are still having a struggle with diet and cholesterol etc to adopt a more aggressive vegetarian approach. He wants us to eliminate dairy and meat protein., since even lean chicken and fish still contain fat, lots of it = cholesterol . I have been moving along with the low GI starch complex foods, eating more beans, vegetable protein and lots of fruits & veggies. So to quit meat, eggs & dairy etc was not a big step. The benefits of doing this while in this really warm climate is that I immediately stopped heating up after meals and feeling so stuffed for hours, plus fruits and veggies are really cheap and plentiful. I feel great. I have been eating my face off with fruits, beans, veggies, corn tortillas etc, along with beer and have lost weight, without having access to my daily at home weight and aerobics regimes ( Its too damn hot, anyway) . The book is a bit repetitive , but it contains some good recipes and tips on where to get stuff. All in all, I am enjoying the change.
