Book Description

Stuck in a meal rut and tired of the same old foods?

If you’re someone who is dealing with diabetes, there’s no question that you must be paying attention to what you eat each day. The foods you put into your body are going to have a very strong influence on not only how well you feel, but on how well you handle this condition altogether.

By making smart food choices, you can maintain control over your diabetes and live the lifestyle that you want to lead.

The following 101 foods will do just that. We’ve selected the top picks that you should include in your diet plan regularly so you no longer have to wonder what to eat.

This list is meant to encourage you to broaden your eating choices. This prevents the boredom that many experience by getting stuck on limited diets, and often leads to “cheating” which can have very unhealthy consequences.

These foods are very rich in nutrients and will help you maintain steady blood sugar levels throughout the day. If you eat a wide variety of them on a regular basis throughout the week, you’ll be feeding your body right and energizing yourself for all the different activities that you choose to pursue.

Includes a shopping list that conveniently organizes them as you would find them while shopping.

2.0 out of 5 stars My Doctor differs... August 7, 2012
By susc
My Doctor differs on several of these foods. She gave me a hand-out of guidelines for low glycemic foods for diabetics. Several of the "best 101" from this book are in the "eat only occasionally" to "try to avoid" columns of my hand-out.
Even though fruits are healthy; high sugar fruits probably should not be on the Best 101 foods list for diabetics. This book lists several and that cuts into the list quite a bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful addition to my diabetes recipe book. August 16, 2011
By Jen
Format:Kindle Edition
I have a husband with type II diabetes and there are 3 other relatives that suffer with the disease also. I have found this book to be an invaluable addition when planning meals and family get togethers. I often stray from the recipes I have by adding and substituting fruits or vegetables to my salads and casseroles and this easy guide is perfect. My husband loves the additions that have actually proved very beneficial to controlling his sugar levels.

Now I can prepare healthy snacks for the entire family, with foods we all enjoy, hopefully deterring my kids from getting this hereditary disease in the future.

This book has made my life easier when preparing meals, and mostly contains foods we were already eating. It is a well researched list that let me know which foods to increase by teaching me the benefits.

One thing I would like to emphasize is that this list contains easily obtainable foods that you can buy in the super market and doesn't require you to make an expensive trip to the health food store. Its a guide you will refer to time and time again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful October 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My husband has just been diagnosed with early onset of diabetes type 2. We are starting to watch his food intake, types of food, etc., but we are new to this and don't really know what is "good" and what is "bad" other than the basic less carbs, less sugar; in the end we became frustrated as we realized there is not much options for him out there. This book helps us to simply and easily identify the types of food, the benefits of each and cooking suggestions. Great guide to put together my daily menu and grocery shopping list! Thank you for putting this together.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless April 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is just a list of foods. There is no information on nutrition values, not even carb content.
I also expected some kind of diets as the title suggests.

Downloading and reading this book was a waste of time. The book could have been replaced with a well organized list of foods and benefits.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent and Helpful Book August 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Diabetes Diet: the 101 Best Diabetic Foods is an excellent resource for any type of diabetes victim. The reason we found it so helpful, not only because the list of foods is right here in one fast-to-see place, but the book is far more than a "list." On each food item you get detailed health support on the benefits that particular food brings. For example, I had no idea avocados were so low on the glycemic index (great for low carb eating plans AND diabetic plans). And the healthy spices were not omitted either, such as Turmeric which we love and learned here that it helps lower LDL. This is a fantastic reference volume that doesn't take a scientist to understand and yet is extremely detailed with the specific benefits each food brings.

1.0 out of 5 stars Who is the "Health Research Staff?" May 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
There are a series of books "The 101 Best Ways to..." writing by someone or some group called the "Health Research Staff". Who are they? What are their credentials? It seems to me that they are all self published primers on a wide range of subjects that the author probably knows very little about but is acting as if they are an expert. I don't buy it. I'd like to see a disclosure about who his person is and how they can claim to be an expert on Diabetes, Testosterone, Binge Eating, Plant-based diet, and much more. It is just irresponsible to give medical advice without credentials.
