If you do not have a bunch of people in your life battling Type 2 Diabetes, you might be in denial. I continue to be amazed at how many people in my life have Type 2 Diabetes. It seems like an epidemic to me.
Winning Your Blood Sugar Battle is a fantastic book that helps to deal straight with what is causing this disease, but also how to battle it.
No one in my home has Type 2 Diabetes, but that does not make the information in this book any less valuable and educational.
When reading this book, and learning the science behind what is going on in a person’s body, how they are diagnosed with this disease, but most of all learning that diet & exercise play a HUGE role, it made me wonder why so many people are not doing anything about it.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book, it taught me so many things that are important for all of us to know and understand and it inspired me to get my family smarter on what we eat, why we eat it and how to make better choices!
NOTE : I was offered a copy of Winning Your Blood Sugar Battle in exchange for an honest review.
MORE ABOUT THE BOOK:
The time to make lifestyle changes is now!
More than thirty million Americans have diabetes. Another eighty-four million–more than thirty percent of the adult population–have elevated blood sugar levels that put them at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. For most of us, it takes a medical emergency to get us to make vital changes to our eating, exercise habits, and weight control. At that point it is often too little, too late. The terrible reality is that eighty percent of diabetics will die of a heart attack.
But that doesn’t have to be you.
In Winning Your Blood Sugar Battle, Dr. Richard Furman shows you the three essential steps to keep your blood sugar under control, whether you have already been diagnosed with diabetes or are at risk. He carefully explains the latest medical literature, offers proven guidelines on what to eat (and what not to eat), and outlines an effective exercise program for keeping your heart healthy.
