Two colleagues of the late Dr. Robert Atkins take on the obesity epidemic's deadly twin: type 2 diabetes. Dr. Mary Vernon and Jacqueline Eberstein, RN, adapt the carb-cutting, fat-allowing Atkins nutritional approach as a preemptive strike against this fast-growing killer. Diabetes--defined here as a condition in which glucose or blood sugar is above the normal range--is viewed as a preventable problem. "What we hope we have created in this book is a realistic and practical guide to wiping out type 2, one person at a time." Since obesity is the major risk factor for diabetes, they begin with the "fat lie" (i.e., the belief that fat causes obesity) to voice the Atkins mantra: low fat means high carbs and high carbs are broken down into sugar. With a convincing mix of essay/picture testimonials, clinical studies, quizzes, checklists, and menu planners and recipes, Vernon and Eberstein make the case for diet and lifestyle changes to alter the metabolism of those at risk for diabetes. They have done a yeoman's job of translating Atkins's medical nutrition advice into a step-by-step program. One can quibble about their missionary zeal or the omnipresent eggs in the breakfast sample menus. At times, the scientific data are overly detailed or hidden within a quiz. Thankfully, there is a spot-on summary of the book's paradigm-busting ideas in the appendix. -- Barbara MackoffFrom the Back Cover:
The statistics are staggering. Thirteen million Americans have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes; another 5.2 million don't know that they have it. Each year about 200,000 people die from its complications. But the good news is that Type 2 diabetes is largely preventable, if you know how to identify your risks.
Dr. Robert C. Atkins recognized that diabetes and obesity are twin epidemics, and that the way to reverse both is to permanently change the way people eat. The Atkins Blood Sugar Control Program (ABSCP), presented for the first time in this book, helps you identify metabolic signposts that indicate trouble long before the onset of Type 2 diabetes. If you already have the disease, the ABSCP offers you and your physician a strategy for weight management and blood sugar control, while minimizing exposure to drugs.
Atkins Diabetes Revolution is Dr. Atkins' legacy. This groundbreaking book tackles one of the greatest health challenges you and your family may ever face.
