How to Live Well with Diabetes

Dr Val Wilson
Authors:
Dr Val Wilson

The essential guide to living well with diabetes, written by an expert who has lived with the condition for more than four decades.How to Live Well with Diabetes is a comprehensive self-help guide for people with the condition, either newly diagnosed or for those who've been living with diabetes for some time. This book has been written to help you understand your diagnosis so you can manage and live well with your diabetes for as long as possible. Every aspect of your life with diabetes is covered - from diet, sex and exercise to mood changes, managing blood glucose levels and physical complications arising from the condition. Dr Val Wilson draws on four decades of personal and professional experience to help readers deal with their diagnosis, consider how it will affect their relationships and lifestyle, with advice on DAFNE for Type 1 diabetics and ways that Type 2 diabetes can eventually be reversed. Real-life case studies show other people's experiences of diabetes-related issues that you might also be dealing with.Around 700 people each day are diagnosed with diabetes - that's the equivalent of one every two minutes. In January 2016, Diabetes UK announced that four million people in Britain now have diabetes of one form or another. This is the only book they need to help self-manage the condition.

Is Butter a Carb?

Rosie Saunt, Helen West
Authors:
Rosie Saunt, Helen West

The ultimate myth-busting nutrition bible.Registered dieticians and qualified nutritionists Rosie Saunt and Helen West are the founders of The Rooted Project, set up to translate the latest research direct to your plate, and make evidence-based nutrition accessible and engaging.In this book, they explore everything from the danger of anecdotal evidence and unsubstantiated 'facts' about food to the real science behind the nutrients we consume every day. They explain why there's nothing to be feared from fat or carbs, or - for the vast majority of us - the much-maligned gluten, as well as probing the murky depths of the diet industry to explore the latest links between diet culture and weight stigma. They take a deep-dive into gut health, look at the emerging science of the connection between food and mood and examine differences between allergies and intolerances.This book is both a reference guide and a narrative to relish: it debunks the myths that dominate the food and wellness industry and offers the right tools and knowledge to allow readers to take control of their own health. Evidence-based, body positive and practical, Is Butter a Carb? is the modern must-have nutrition book for everybody interested in food, health and pop science.

The Hybrid Diet

Patrick Holford, Jerome Burne
Authors:
Patrick Holford, Jerome Burne

A radically different, practical and doable way to achieve a healthy weight and substantially reduce your risk of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and dementia.'If you follow the advice here, you will improve your health, lose weight, avoid diabetes and reduce your risk of cancer and Alzheimer's. What more could you ask?' Dr Malcolm Kendrick, GP and author of The Great Cholesterol Con'A highly readable, smart and well-reasoned book based on the latest generation of rigorous science' Nina Teicholz, author of The Big Fat Surprise, and Adjunct Professor, New York UniversityRecent research has shown that a diet that is very low in carbs and high in good fats is effective for weight loss, can counteract many diseases and also help athletic performance and endurance. The drawback is that it is difficult to stick to - because most people love carbs. But, as The Hybrid Diet demonstrates, we don't need to choose. The human body has been designed through millions of years of evolution to burn two different sources of fuel - glucose (which comes from the carbohydrates in fruit and vegetables) and ketones (which are made in the body from fat) - and to switch between them when food is scarce.The point of The Hybrid Diet is to show you how to make the best use of both options when you need them, and how best to switch between them. In their quest to discover the perfect diet, leading health journalist Jerome Burne and nutrition expert Patrick Holford have examined the latest cutting-edge science and have put together a plan that is sound, simple and delicious - one that is based on how your body works best.
