Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

French-speaking people have no trouble remembering which type of diabetes is which. They use the term diabète maigre (thin diabetes) to refer to the severe form of diabetes that tends to strike young, slender children. They use the term diabète gras (fat diabetes) to refer to the milder, curable form of diabetes that occurs in overweight people.

Fat diabetes can be cured by switching to a low-fat, high-fiber, high-carbohydrate, purely plant-based (vegan) diet. The same diet that cures fat diabetes can help to prevent thin diabetes and help prevent the complications of the disease. It can also help everyone in the family stay slim and healthy.

Laurie Thomas has written a very practical, readable book. Her science and logic are impeccable. Diabetics and those wishing to avoid diabetes or to help others with diabetes will find all the information necessary to deal with this disease by using proper nutrition.
--John Forrest, MD, Professor Emeritus, University of California San Diego School of Medicine.

Laurie Thomas is one of the few authors who gets it: The human diet is based on starchy vegetables and grains.
--John McDougall, MD, Founder, The McDougall Program

Laurie Thomas clearly explains how diabetes is a dietary disease. By following her recommendations, most people with type 2 will recover from their diabetes and those with type 1 will avoid the debilitating side effects of the disease. This book is a must-read, for we all know someone who is affected by diabetes.
--Deborah Pate, DC, DACBR
