If you have been dealing with diabetes for years, or if you are a new member of this ever growing club, you'll want to take a look at Tell Me What to Eat If I Have Diabetes: Nutrition You Can Live With. This book covers the basics of what Type II Diabetes is and the steps that you can take to help control it. More important, it clearly explores the role that food plays in your disease, and how making wise food choices is one of the most powerful tools you have in your battle against non-insulin dependent diabetes.

Tell Me What to Eat If I Have Diabetes was written by Elaine Magee, a registered dietician who also holds a Master of Public Health degree. Magee has also written ten other books on nutrition and cooking. Within the course of this book she doesn't tell you what you can and cannot eat. Rather she explains the various properties of food, such as carbohydrates, fat, protein, and fiber, and how these various properties impact your diabetes. Backed by this knowledge, Magee is helping you to learn how to make wise food choices and how to develop a diet plan that best suits your own unique needs. Magee also discusses the need to exercise, monitor your blood sugar, and what to do if you need to lose weight.

The information in this book is primarily organized into eight, fact filled chapters, namely: Filled with a plethora of medical and nutritional advice, Magee rounds out this essential guide with a selection of tasty and healthy recipes. She also offers helpful advice on what to eat if you happen to be visiting a fast food restaurant, advice that includes nutritional charts on some of the products that these restaurants offer. Tell Me What to Eat If I Have Diabetes is essential reading for anyone with Type II Diabetes, as well as for anyone who has a loved-one dealing with diabetes!
