I have had diabetes for 22 years. I have stumbled around for about 22 years too.
The thing is all of the information we are given has conflicted with other trusted sources. Further more I live with an active member of the "Food Police". I have found over the years that Alan's advice about when to test and how to develop a plan that works for your own personal body type to be excellent. I bought the book before it was published and got it last week. I have already read it and given it away! Today I am ordering another two for myself.

If you are a diabetic or friend to a diabetic this is the ONE book that I consider a must have. It is simple and direct. Useful.

Although this book was written by Alan who is a Type 2 diabetic, it is a book that is helpful to people with Type 1 diabetes too. I have had Type 1 diabetes for almost 8 years and for most of that time I've been confused on what I can eat and how it influences my blood sugar.

I enjoy this book because it not only offers Alan's personal experiences with Diabetes, it explains how certain foods can make our blood sugar go higher than usual. There are some recipes toward the back of this book. I tried the recipe for Beef Stew when my family was home for the Christmas holiday. It was easy to make and my family loved it.

What a great little book - whether you're new to T2 diabetes or an 'expert'.

This book is well-written, precise, easily understood and followed for all the scared, confused newbies.
Alan writes in a no-frills style and doesn't try to baffle us with detailed technical jargon. He tells it like it is - because he writes from his own experiences and experiments, which are many.

Loved it!

Alan Shanley's "WHAT ON EARTH CAN I EAT?" is a Life-Saver and a Must Read for all
Type 2 Diabetics and their caretakers.

I have had Type 2 Diabetes for 3 years...and I have learned more from Alan's easy-to-read 166 page book than from my doctor! It not only offers advice and information on diet, nutrition and weight loss...it offers some wonderful recipes as well.

I plan to buy another copy for my pre-diabetic brother. And I might get one for my
doctor as well. It would be wonderful if the doctor's office handed out "WHAT ON EARTH CAN I EAT?" with the Type 2 Diagnosis.

Thanks, Alan, for setting me on the right track.

This is a fantastic little book full of sensible information about nutrition. It will be a boon not only to those with T2, but also for those wishing to lose weight or just aiming for a healthy, blanced lifestyle. I especially recommend the recipe for Alan's sweet curry, which is simply delicious, freezes well and improves on reheating.

A really excellent book giving practical information by someone living with diabetes and who can relate to the many daily problems associated with this. This book was recommended on a UK diabetic forum but as yet unavailable in the UK, I am so pleased I bought this and waited for delivery. It has been an invaluable tool in my journey to achieving lower and stable blood glucose levels. The tips and suggestions really worked for me and using my meter to judge which foods have the least effect on my levels have given me the best annual test results from my GP in 5 years! I have also lost 6kgs in body weight with relative ease. My gratitude to the author for his dedication to sharing his knowledge and helping to put me on the right path to what I can eat. The recipes are great and reignited my interest in cooking once again. I regularly pick this book up and re-read segments or chapters and my confidence is growing in coping with diabetes outside the home.

This book is a superb guide through the often complex maze that is diabetes. When I was diagnosed almost three years ago I was given a meter by my doctor and turned out in the bright noonday sun to fend for my diabetic life. The diabetic educator had me eating so many carbohydrates that my blood glucose stayed high and my doctors solution was to add more medication. I found Alan posting invaluable advice about working out your my own eating regime. I didn't want more medication I wanted to know how to eat properly to get control of my diabetes. This book gives you tools to help you have good control over your diabetes. I love it that he maintains his sense of humor in all of this.
