This book is INCREDIBLY helpful with practical suggestions on food, exercise, sleep and mindset. The beautiful layout makes the information easy to absorb and reading it is indeed like having a conversation with your most practical friend as they share their best tips and experience with you. Breaking topics down into bright spots and landmines is a really helpful way to think about the different aspects of diabetes management. I would recommend it for ANYONE with diabetes or pre-diabetes... there is useful information for everyone here. Thank you, Adam!!
-Naomi Kingery Ruperto, author of The Sugar Free Series
