Suffering from Type 2 diabetes? We are. And we know the only way to keep it under control is with exercise and diet. (Some will argue diet and exercise.) Best-selling author Dana Carpender strips away the carbohydrates, grains, sugars and starches and reveals 200 of her best ultra-low carb recipes in must-own “The Low Carb-Diabetes Solution Cookbook” (Fair Winds Press, $17.99).
The low-carb lifestyle continues to be a popular choice among those trying to lose weight through the ketodiet, resolve insulin resistance and combat pre-diabetes and diabetes. Those in the gluten-free and Paleo/Primal diet communities are also searching for recipes that will also help their guts, work with their lifestyles and benefit their health. Foods that are high in fat and low in carbs are, in some cases, just what the doctor ordered. This book has 200 recipes to jumpstart your nutrition and get you on the path to a healthier, happier you.
So special is Carpender’s cookbook that is has been named the official cookbook of HEAL Diabetes and Medical Weight Loss Centers, founded by Dr. Eric Westman. Pretty impressive, no?
Some more food for thought: Dana Carpender was startled to discover that limiting her carbohydrate intake not only helped her control her weight, but produced the health and vitality a low fat diet had promised but never delivered. Fifteen years later, she laughs at people who say “You can’t eat that way long-term.” Her eight cookbooks are the result of her realization that the key to permanent dietary change is the answer to the age-old question, “What’s for supper?” She blogs about low carb nutrition at HoldtheToast.com; she is also Managing Editor of CarbSmart magazine at CarbSmart.com.
