Dr. Vagnini is a cardiovascular surgeon, diabetes and weight loss specialist, radio show host, and author who likes to be referred to as Dr. V.! His book outlines his nutritional philosophy for shedding the pounds and getting diabetes managed. Check out what Dr. V. has to say about his own personal struggle with weight and family history of diabetes, his previous collaboration with The Carbohydrate Addict's Diet authors Drs. Richard & Rachael Heller, why he opposes a high-fat Atkins-style low-carb diet, his aversion to saturated fat because of potential risks associated with cancer and insulin sensitivity, his personal history with the late Dr. Robert C. Atkins, the 5-step program for controlling diabetes through weight loss, why he believes eating fruit is like consuming a candy bar, the supplements and pharmaceutical remedies he uses as part of his program, the best natural way to beat diabetes, why doctors have trouble diagnosing diabetes, why pre-diabetes is really diabetes already, his support for Dr. Simeon's HCG protocol, and so much more. I'm certain you've never a book on diabetes quite like this one from Dr. Vagnini!
I disagree with his stance on high-fat, low-carb diets which have been shown in many recent studies to be an effective plan for reversing the ill effects of Type 2 diabetes. Sure, there are other ways to control blood sugar and insulin, but saturated fat does not need to be unnecessarily vilified as he has done in this book. I do agree that fruit is sugar just as a candy bar or soda is and should be limited for people with diabetes. While weight loss is certainly a goal of diabetics, the BIGGER goal should be normalized blood sugars as the great Dr. Richard Bernstein writes about in his classic book Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution: The Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Blood Sugars. Overall, it's not a horrible book but there are better ways to get there from here.
