As a physician, I am always looking for helpful educational aides for patients to help take better care of themselves. I found this book to be very easy to read, with enough science to be educational but not too much to be overwhelming or confusing. Dr Rodriquez takes what can be sometimes a very confusing condition and makes it understandable. And with the recipes it doesn't seem to be a "burden" or chore to eat right. With the degree of obesity seen in America, this book should be on everyone's Christmas gift list. Kudos to the authors for a job well done!

“Dr. Rodriguez does an excellent job of showing how lifestyle changes can truly help one manage, or better yet prevent, diabetes. With rates on the rise, this is a timely book that I highly recommend to anyone interested in taking control of their diabetes or prediabetes.”
