A practical, empowering guide to managing and reversing prediabetes through diet and exercise, from a registered dietitian.
Increasingly diagnosed by doctors and affecting millions of Americans, prediabetes is a condition in which blood sugar levels are elevated.
It often develops into full-blown diabetes, one of the leading causes of death in the United States, and it is a major risk factor for heart and blood vessel disease, kidney failure, and blindness.
While diabetes cannot be cured, prediabetes can indeed be reversed, so it is critical to implement lifestyle changes at an early stage.
In straightforward, jargon-free language,The Prediabetes Diet Plan explains prediabetes’s underlying cause of insulin resistance and offers a comprehensive diet strategy based on Hillary Wright’s two decades of experience counseling clients on diet and lifestyle change.
With sections on meal planning, grocery shopping, dining out, and supplements, this book empowers readers to make healthier everyday choices that can effect real change on their insulin levels.
Wright is the director of nutritional counseling at the Domar Center for Mind/Body Health at Boston IVF, a Harvard-affiliated fertility treatment center. She serves part-time as a nutritionist at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
