Our national epidemic of type 2 diabetes, obesity, and heart disease is the price we pay for a diet that is too rich for our modern lifestyle. To fight back, we have focused on eating low-fat foods and quick-fix diets that just don't seem to work. The Other Diabetes, a consumer guide to type 2 diabetes, can help you change all that with the optimal eating plan. The Good Fat Diet offers a collection of eighty healthy and wholesome recipes.

Elizabeth Hiser was nutrition and health editor for Eating Well for nine years. Previously, she served as research dietition at the University of Vermont's Clinical Research Center. Ms. Hiser holds an M.S. in human nutrition and foods and has written about diabetes and heart disease for health professionals and consumers. She lives in Charlotte, Vermont.From Publishers Weekly:
When most people think about diabetes, they often think of type one, where the pancreas doesn't create insulin at all. But here in the U.S., nine times out of 10, the diagnosis is that of the much more insidious type-two variety, when the pancreas creates plenty of insulin but the body doesn't use it properly. Genetic factors and too much body fat set the stage for this type of diabetes. There's nothing sufferers can do about the first; but by losing weight and exercising, type-two sufferers can reduce the risk of potentially serious side effects, such as heart disease. Hiser, a registered dietitian and longtime nutrition editor at Eating Well, nudges readers into taking control of their health. She explains everything from what the disease is to the basics of good nutrition and why an exercise plan is essentialAand she does it with plenty of pep talks. She includes a chart that calculates weight-loss potential for one year of added activity: for example, with only one hour of food preparation a day, shopping, putting away groceries, chopping and cooking, dieters could lose 12 pounds. Once she's helped readers set up an exercise plan, Hiser tackles eating with a six-week meal plan, complete with recipes inspired by the Mediterranean diet. It's pretty familiar stuff: poultry replaces higher-fat meats in some dishes, and vegetables, of course, play a starring role. What is most appealing, though, is Hiser's philosophy that it doesn't take long for even small changes to make a big differenceAa positive note in which newly diagnosed diabetics and their families will take comfort.
