This comprehensive yet accessible guide will show you how to diminish stress, exercise smart, and eat surprisingly well while reducing permanent damage and eliminating future complications.

This is a fantastic resource for any one who is deals with diabetes on a daily basis, has prediabetes or a family history of diabetes. The book explains in everyday language, the importance of truly understanding the seriousness of a disease that is rampant in today's society. The book is very well organized and includes a very easy to follow eating plan, easy to make recipes that all will enjoy and so much encouragement for those of us, like myself, that live with Diabetes on a daily basis.
