I bought this and The Insulin-Resistance Diet at the same time and can tell you this book doesn't cut it for me. I've read many, many books on diabetes over the past 2-3 years and taken 2 courses on proper diet to control blood sugar -- this book doesn't hold a candle to any of them. There is much too much emphasis put on taking supplements - particularly those from health food stores which aren't regulated as to the veracity of the contents. This book was just a waste of an evening and the money to buy it. Save yourselves the trouble and get the Insulin-Resistance Diet by Cheryle R. Hart, MD -- something you can do and live with without depending on lots of supplements.
