My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Are you on the road to diabetes? A simple way to know you have this problem is if you have excess body fat around your waist. That means your insulin levels are out of control. Insulin is the fat storage hormone. Diabetes is a disease in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced.

After reading this book I went and bought a blood sugar monitor at Walmart for $8. I started testing my blood sugar five times a day to see what the food I ate was doing to me. I found that I cannot handle carbohydrates (carbohydrate means foods such as cereals, bread, rice, and pasta or simple carbohydrates, such as sugar -found in candy, jams, and desserts.  Fruits and vegetables are also carbohydrates). I have a pre-diabetes condition and I wouldn't have realized this unless I hadn't started testing my blood sugar.

This book is a must read for anyone who has diabetes or pre-diabetes with metabolic syndrome or syndrome x (metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions — increased blood pressure, a high blood sugar level, excess body fat around the waist or abnormal cholesterol levels). This book can help you prevent getting diabetes or help you from developing some of the devastating health problems that come with uncontrolled diabetes. This book turns the current recommendations from the diabetes community upside down. Dr. Bernstein is a pioneer in the study and treatment of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. He was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 12 and he is now almost 80 years old. It is almost unheard of for a Type 1 diabetic to live that long. He was an engineer who's wife was a doctor. He was able to obtain the first hospital machine to test blood sugar and start using it at home. No one back then knew that food had such a profound effect upon blood sugar. He starting monitoring all the foods he ate and their effect on his blood sugar levels. He wrote papers to try to educate the medical community but they wouldn't listen so he decided when he was in his forties to become a medical doctor so he could publish his findings and actually give real help to diabetics. http://www.diabetes-book.com/

He contends that all diabetics are entitled and should expect to have the same blood sugar levels as "normal" people (83 mg/dL). He will walk you through all aspects of what happens with blood sugar, how to control it and why you should do this. You'll live longer and have MUCH better health.
