Dr. Barnard provides an excellent discussion of a plant based (vegan) diet for diabetics and for preventing diabetes. He also address the psychology, problems with, menus for, and reasons for this diet. I am convinced that he is correct and am giving it a try (don't have diabetes and am not overweight). ( )

Barnard is right; eating a plant based diet rich in fiber, complex carbohydrate that is low in fat, refined carbohydrate and commercially processed foods will, in most cases, stabilize blood glucose levels. Consistent levels benefit people suffering from diabetes. This book provides a plan for diabetics to transition to a vegan diet. His plan is basically a modified McDougall diet, with lots of recipes and explanations. It would be best suited to someone recently diagnosed with type II diabetes, looking to avoid medication. I bought this book as a gift for such a person, her results have been dramatic. After one month on the diet her blood sugar is back down within normal range, her blood pressure is down and she’s lost fifteen pounds. ( )
