    This was a great book. Fast and easy read- i started and finished it on my flight to and from Lihue. It was extremely informative and had a lot of great things to incporporate to my every day life. i decided to read it because ive come to admit that im a sugar addict and i love my carbs. im a vegan so i pretty much just eat carbs and ive been looking for ways to change that. even though this book is directed at people with diabetes i think its a great read for everyone. im taking a lot with me- iv This was a great book.

    I know all this. You would think I could just balance my glycemic intake naturally by now. I'm a retired nurse! I practice yoga regularly. I jog, walk, bicycle. I meditate for heavens sake! Why should it be so difficult to balance my nutritional in-take when I have succeeded in finding balance in so many other aspects of my life! I keep trying. I know all this.

    Not the book I meant to get from the library and really didn't address my concerns/ questions. Not the book I meant to get from the library and really didn't address my concerns/ questions.

    This book contains a good balance of theoretical knowledge and practical advice. It has a general introduction on why sugar is a problem and a quiz to help the reader to assess their own risk. It then explains what impact sugar has on the body in relation to various diseases and conditions, including memory problems and the menopause. There is a focus throughout the book on diabetes, but the advice would apply to all of us (I don't have diabetes but intend to follow this eating plan).

It has a general introduction on why sugar is a problem and a quiz to help the reader to assess their own risk. It then explains what impact sugar has on the body in relation to various diseases and conditions, including memory problems and the menopause. There is a focus throughout the book on diabetes, but the advice would apply to all of us (I don't have diabetes but intend to follow this eating plan). She makes the connection also between blood sugar imbalances and weight gain. In the section on eating well the author introduces the Glycaemic Index and talks about the main ingredients of food; protein, fat and carbs. She explains what proportion of these should make up your diet and what kind of food can provide them. She includes eating in restaurants. She explains what sort of foods should be in your fridge, freezer and pantry; and what should NOT be in there! There's a section each on exercise, sleep and stress, and she explains how and why each of these things will affect your blood sugar. In the exercise section there are quizzes to help you decide what type of exercise might suit you best, what time of day to workout and so on. She also provides a detailed strength workout plan (with photos) and a walking workout schedule (for both beginners and advanced walkers). Over a third of the book is taken up with the eating plan of which about 70 pages are recipes and most of these look both tasty and easy to prepare. There is also a detailed plan covering three weeks; for each day this includes the menu (with full nutritional breakdown), a Tranquility Tip (such as buy a sketch pad and spend a few minutes drawing something) and a Walk This Way tip (such as avoiding shin pain). The eating plan supplies about 1500-1600 calories a day. She does explain how this can be amended up or down, although doesn't spend too much time on this, and doesn't cover how to work out what your calorie intake should be. I think this may be because it is not primarily a book about weight loss. She simply explains that, once your blood sugar is in balance, and with regular exercise, you are likely to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Overall this is a very readable book and full of practical information. The author doesn't waste too much space on case studies (those always annoy me anyway!) but does make the advice very useable. The only thing I didn't agree with was the advice to use low-fat products. I think this has been generally discredited in the last few years. To be fair though, it was probably the accepted advice in 2006 when the book was published. Other than that though, this book hasn't aged at all and could be used right now (which is what I intend to do myself!). She says: If one simple thing could energise you in hours, soothe crankiness and fatigue within a day, allow you to finally shed extra weight and dramatically reduce your lifetime risk of heart attack, stroke and dementia - you'd say it's magic, or a wonder drug. All you need to do is take charge of your blood sugar. Your body needs a steady supply of blood sugar. Your brain runs almost entirely on blood sugar. Benefits of Blood Sugar Balance 1. Easier weight loss without food cravings. High levels of insulin may slow your body's fat-burning ability. Low blood sugar levels can trigger food cravings.

    This book answered a lot of questions I've had about nutrition, specially about metabolism, blood-sugar, hormones, and weight loss. Great information, well-organized and well-documented. I have to return it to the library but plan on getting it again to read the rest. (I'm too hungry for good fiction right now.)

    There were a lot of interesting facts in here, coupled with some tips and recipes that are for real live human beings that have to cook their own meals, they don't require a gazillion dollars and a personal chef! Which was very refreshing. My family had no problem eating the food when I made some of the changes.

    This is a great book. I believe it was intended to be read by people with diabetes, but I found it very interesting. A good portion of the book describes how sugar and insulin affect your hunger and how to control it with food.
