About the Author

Mayo Clinic took root in farm fields near Rochester, Minn., in the late 1800s. It grew from the medical practice of a country doctor, William Worrall Mayo, and the partnership of his two sons, William J. and Charles H. Mayo – affectionately known as Dr. Will and Dr. Charlie.

The brothers' innovative ideas and tireless work in learning and creating new surgical techniques attracted international attention. Physicians from around the world came to watch the Mayo brothers perform surgery.

The Mayo brothers invited other doctors to join them, forming teams of medical experts. Today, Mayo Clinic – one of the world’s oldest and largest multispecialty group practices – comprises more than 45,000 physicians, scientists, nurses and other staff at its three locations in Rochester, Minn., Jacksonville, Fla., and Scottsdale, Ariz., and its regional community-based health care practices.

I bought this book because it was not only a diet book, but written for people who diabetic and prediabetic. I like the easy to use knowledge that the book offers. What you read is easy to apply to the way you eat. Although it is a diet that will help you control your blood glucose levels it also will help the reader to lose weight depending on how closely they follow the ideas presented in the book. The accompaning journal that is available is also very helpful and easy to use.
I was also happy that unlike most diet books this one is not 3/4 full of recipes; the last chapter is recipes and that is it. The book is primarily the do's and don'ts of losing weight with diabetes and all through the book helpful tips.

The book is a good "how to" for living with diabetes. It's not so much a diet, although you will lose weight immediately following the advice in the book. If you're looking for recipes, don't look here. This book is more a strategy for living better with the condition. The advice is very simple and easy to adopt.

I have gone to the Mayo Clinic medical website for years to consult regarding various issues, one of which has been diets for losing weight plus trying to avoid becoming a victim of diabetes. I ordered this book because I wanted to educate myself re handling my diet. I found it quite informative and helpful with colorful graphics, highlighted topics, detailed index, specific sections on the food pyramid and how to gauge serving sizes, calories, and nutrition aspects. The book treats the significance of exercise plus controlling the food choices made in staying healthy on a daily basis. A positive, approach to living a healthy lifestyle. I automatically think of Amazon.com for my purchases as my experience with them as been very positive. They respond quickly to my orders. I highly recommend this specific book. Z. Smith

I bought this to help me lose weight and to better maintain my blood sugars (as a diabetic). I found nothing Earth shattering in this book, but I found it a good resource for tried and true methods for eating healthy.

I found the emphasis on fruits (always stressing eating fruits and vegetables) to be strange. However, as a result, I have found a number of sources of fruits that actually have lower carb and calorie counts than the snacks I had been eating (like Atkins bars) and more filling.

I found a paper version of the book might have been a bit easier to use than the Kindle edition (using my PC and Kindle for my Android phone), especially when trying to reference charts and tables with servings recommendations and sizes.

It has not been a revolution, but a refinement of the healthy eating techniques I have been compiling. I really like the fact that they do not use any fad techniques or try and bash any diet techniques. For instance, I have been following the debate regarding whether or not diet soda is healthy. Rather than get into the details of that, they simply recommend avoiding "empty calories". In other words, if it does not provide nutritional content, then you should avoid it. They also warn that often when artificial sweeteners are used, manufacturers add fats or other contents that are not good for you. As a result, stick to nutritional food and avoid the current debates in "diet" circles.

In the first two weeks, I have lost about 10 pounds without feeling like I have been deprived. In fact, the book stresses eating at regular intervals, so I feel less ups and downs in my daily intake of food. I feel better, have started exercising and feel this will be a good, long term guide to helping me be healthy.

Format: Hardcover
I am not going to say that I like this book, because if I were honest, I don't
like arrogant doctors and the condescending way some of this material was presented. But, the purpose of reading this book is not enjoyment, it's not the kind of book you read for fun - it's the kind of book you read when you are having some problems and you are trying to help yourself improve.

there are a lot of good ideas in this book.

for example I tend to be on the computer a lot - it suggested that you only spend time on the computer equal to the amount of time you exercise - that's a good idea.

the idea of how to do your plate is a good idea

the idea of dealing with your emotions and attitudes in a manner that doesn't involve food - is another good idea.

there are many good ideas in this book and they honestly seek to keep the material upbeat but often I felt like they were saying things in a scolding kind of manner which I didn't like at all.

I'm giving this book 4 stars because even with some of the problems it has a lot of valuable information in this book. It is worth reading and owning, and that's just my opinion. One thing I would like to see is how you can prepare meals quickly doing this program or how you can eat at restaurants or fast food places and still follow the plan.

I truly feel the Mayo Clinic has a lot to answer for publishing this book under it's current title. It provides no diet at all, but suggests that one gets a diet from their nutritionist!
It has a series of essay from diabetic specialists concerning the issue of diabetic diets, but that is all.
