1.0 out of 5 stars Too many errors to be reliable 31 Dec 2001
By Kit - Published on Amazon.com
I was very excited to receive this book, but was disappointed upon reading it. I am a librarian who specializes in biological information, and I found this book to be full of both scientific and editorial errors.
The authors can't decide if there are 9 or 11 essential amino acids (most authorities say 8 or 9), and they sometimes mix up amino acids with fatty acids. These and most of the other biological errors are so basic that a high-school biology student should know better. As for the writing, I found non-sensical sentences and entire paragraphs misplaced (such as two paragraphs on legumes under the heading of fruit, instead of the previous heading of legumes where it clearly belonged). It appears that the text was not actually reviewed by a professional editor before it was published.
These scientific and editorial errors are extensive and can make the information presented somewhat confusing. Even worse, it indicates a lack of quality that makes all the information presented highly questionable. This is particularly bad because the authors often push very controversial points of view, which really need to be backed up by a high quality review of good science.
If you do read this book, I highly recommend that you also read books by other authors to get a more balanced view of how to live with diabetes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful & Informative ! 27 Jun 2000
By Janine - Published on Amazon.com
This book has two main sections. Section one explains the phisiology of diabetes and of certain foods. If you ever wanted to know exactly how certain food groups effects your body's responses, read this section. It is fascinating. The authors themselves tell you to skip this section if you have no interest in it.
Section two describes exactly what foods & supplements are beneficial to eat if you are diabetic and why. It also lists foods in the category (ie: high fiber foods). That is the beauty of this book. many books tell you to eat complex carbohydrates, more fiber, etc but they hardly indentify the foods. The authors also talk about the Glyclemic index which rates foods according to how fast they convert into glucose in your body.

2.0 out of 5 stars The same old low fat advice which only increases BS levels! 24 April 2009
By orpament II - Published on Amazon.com
I cannot fathom why the medical field along with dietitians continue to advise diabetics to eat low fat and to eat grains and fruit. Any experienced diabetic who tests regularly knows that the only true way to lowering blood sugar levels is to eat low carb (and NOT low fat). As a calorie is a calorie, so is a carb a carb as far as a most diabetics go. Obviously a serving of broccoli is better than one of cake, however, intake of carbohydrates will raise blood sugars (it depends on portion). This is simplified however, new diabetics, your best bet is to test, test, test. I guarantee, you will see lower numbers when you eliminate most bread, pasta, and keep fruit portions tiny. You will also stop having carb cravings and lose weight. Bottom line, look at labels and account for all carbs (not just sugar).

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book! 10 Oct 2000
By Jean Weinstein - Published on Amazon.com
"What to Eat If You Have Diabetes" is a great resource for anyone with diabetes, their family members and friends. This book covers everything from the physiology of our bodies to dietary plans. It gives detailed explanations of how diabetes effects the body and what role diet and medications take in the battle against this disease.
There are chapters on exercise and how to eat smart while traveling.
The authors have also included a "suggested reading materials" list.

1.0 out of 5 stars waste of money 28 Feb 2013
By Tree Fitzpatrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this book is turgidly written. I bought it to read about food, meal planning, even recipes and nutrition but it goes on and on and on about explaining the body -- the title is very misleading, even dishonest.

and the authors write so cute I wanted to barf. They talk about organs in your body as different cities and then how cells move from city to city. I wish I were making this googly talk up but this is actually in the book, like they assume their readers are morons and can't read "your pancreas does this and your liver does that" they must not reallhy be writers, just want to write and they try to be creative but they just end up boring and lunkheadedly bad.

and only at the very end do yhou get a few recipes -- and the recipes are all very high carb. Um, hello, the audience for this book is diabetics who need to count carbs. any type of diabetic needs to carefuly control carbs but the recieps are higher carb than anything I would ever eat.

a waste of mhy money and I regret the purchse. No wonder my library didnt hae it. Mhy library only buys quality books This book is commercial pablum and bad writing.
