From the Author

From Antony Worrall Thompson:
I categorically state at the beginning of the book that I don’t advise the use of artificial sweeteners and spreads which contain hydrogenated fats. Anyone who knows of my reputation knows full well that I am one of the strongest public voices in favour of organic products and that I am constantly castigating many food manufacturers and indeed the public for making or buying foods heavy in sugars, salt, fats and preservatives. My recipes were all tried and tested by myself and others and passed suitable for people with diabetes by a well-renowned Consultant Nutritionist and Dietician, Azmina Govindji BSc RD. Our intentions are to create a book to give people with diabetes hope and make them realise that enjoyable food after diagnosis is still possible - and this is what we have done.

From Azmina Govindji:
There is no reason why people with diabetes need to avoid sugar. Sweets are no more out of bounds to people with diabetes than they are to the rest of us, if eaten as part of a healthy diet, or combined with exercise. So, the diet for diabetes is indeed a healthy diet for the whole population, and organisations such as Diabetes UK and the Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation endorse the use of sugar as part of a healthy balanced diet. Current advice from Diabetes U.K.:
''People with diabetes used to be advised to restrict the use of sugar and sugary foods. However, it is now known that sugar does not raise the blood sugar level any higher than starch does, provided that the calorie content of the sugar-containing food is the same as that of the starchy food. Diabetes UK's current advice is therefore that sugar can be used by people with diabetes who are not overweight, provided that it is used in the context of a healthy diet and does not account for more than 10 per cent of the calories obtained from carbohydrate''. Further, they add that people with diabetes do not ''need to eat a sugar-free diet. Sugar can be used as an ingredient in foods and in baking as part of a healthy diet. However, use sugar-free, low sugar or diet squashes and fizzy drinks, as sugary drinks cause blood glucose levels to rise quickly''.

I must say, this book is a lot better than some of the diabetic recipe books I have seen (and I have seen a lot in 31 years)!
There is plenty of information introducing food facts,
the glycemic index, recipe tips and the latest research info on diet.
There are 100 recipes and colour photos throughout the book. With
such recipes as: scrambled eggs and smoked salmon timbales, toasted pasta in wild mushroom broth, stuffed sardines, and bread and butter pudding with raspberry sauce you really cannot go wrong! Not a single recipe resembling the likes of "Sawdust casserole" which I have seen too many a time in diabetic recipe publications.
This book would make an ideal gift for anybody interested in a healthier approach to eating, and is a lot better than some of the so called diabetic cookbooks.
I will definitely be making use of it. I like the way a chef has written the recipes and as it is co-written with a dietitian you can be assured the recipes will be good and taste good.
Very impressed!

I have bought this book myself and I think it is a really useful book. I have written this review because I think that the review by northern climes is confusing and I am worried that people with diabetes will get the impression that this book is full of sugar and artificial ingredients. IT IS NOT. This book concentrates on using natural ingredients, including dried fruit, and specifically advises against using artificial sweetners, as is consistent with diabetes recommendations.
I found the recipes really delicious and welcomed the attitude that there are no 'banned' foods for people with diabetes - sugar and sweet food is allowable as long as you eat sensibly. And the book quite rightly tells you how to do this. Great advice and yum yum yummy recipes.

Fantastic recipes. Tremendous variety of products. An abundance of information for people with Type 2 Diabetes. Everything I have cooked so far has been full of colour and flavour. This is exactly what is required for food lovers who must change their diet as a result of diabetes.

This book makes a welcome change from the usual diabetes cookery books. The recipes are exciting but easy to follow and the photography is beautiful. I also found the tips and practical advice extremely useful. This really puts the enjoyment of good food back into cooking for those of us with diabetes.

There are some really gorgeous recipes in here and none of them are too fiddly and difficult. I like the way nutritional breakdowns are given for everything so you really know what you're eating. A godsend for diabetics who are sick of boring food!

Format: Paperback
I ordered this book a while ago. I haven't had the inclination to cook even one of the recipes since virtually all of them would ensure my blood sugar would hit the teens. AWT is fixated upon the "healthy heart" diet which may be fine for non-diabetics, but the preponderance of carbohydrates in his recipes is completely unsuitable for a diabetic. It's a simple fact - carbohydrate turns to sugar in the blood stream, yes, not just sugar, but potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Sorry Mr AWT I want to keep my limbs and my eyesight.

Format: Paperback
It seems to have passed the authors of this book by that carbohydrates (not just sugars) raise blood glucose. So to find recipes with up to 72g of carb per portion was more than a little surprising.
Although some attempt was made to modify recipes towards a lower (but not low enough) glycemic index, the glycemic load does not appear to have been considered. The effect on the blood glucose is guaranteed in many of these recipes to be pretty appalling.
I'd be interested to know if the effects of eating any of these recipes were tested on actual diabetics. From personal experience I doubt it since I have a fair idea of what the effects would be.
