Tackle diabetes and its complications for good with this newly updated edition of Dr. Neal Barnard's groundbreaking program.

Revised and updated, this latest edition of Dr. Barnard's groundbreaking book features a new preface, updates to diagnostic and monitoring standards, recent research studies, and fresh success stories of people who have eliminated their diabetes by following this life-changing plan.

Before Dr. Barnard's scientific breakthrough, most health professionals believed that once you developed diabetes, you were stuck with it--and could anticipate one health issue after another, from worsening eyesight and nerve symptoms to heart and kidney problems. But this simply is not true--Dr. Barnard has shown that it is often possible to improve insulin sensitivity and tackle type 2 diabetes by following his step-by-step plan, which includes a healthful vegan diet with plenty of recipes to get started, an exercise guide, advice about taking supplements and tracking progress, and troubleshooting tips.

I have read this book through my local regional library network twice now. One was a quick scan, which seemed even then shocking. The author's name seemed familiar, so I did some research and then re-read it. In detail. And was even more shocked. Diabetics who used this program and worsened (99% I am sure) should form a web group and pursue a major class action lawsuit.

If people are vegan / vegetarian by nature or for "spiritual" reasons, that is fine.

But do not promote that eating style as a diabetes treatment. It is just the opposite (read "The Vegetarian Myth").

Neal Bernard is a practitioner of Junk Science and pseudo nutrition who pushes a POLITICAL agenda with a book that can kill people!

Neal D. Barnard is "an American doctor, author, clinical researcher"....AND the founding president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), an international network of doctors, scientists, and laypeople (mostly vegan / vegetarian laypeople).

In 1985, Barnard founded the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). The organization is opposed to some medical and scientific practices that it considers harmful to human health, and promotes the health benefits of a vegetarian and vegan diet.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C., which promotes a vegan diet (compare this with the LOW Carbs and higher Fat - good fats, such as Animal Fats and Tropical Oils which are also high in saturated fat, and moderately high Protein for Diabetes control....read "Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution" for a good example)

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and the foundation that manages it—the Foundation to Support Animal Protection, also known as the PETA Foundation—donated over $850,000 to PCRM between 1988 and 2000, and Barnard sat on the Foundation's board until 2005. Barnard also writes a medical column for Animal Times, PETA's magazine.

Barnard has co-signed letters, on PCRM letterhead, with the leader of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty, an animal-rights group the Department of Justice calls a "domestic TERRORIST threat." An agency called the Foundation to Support Animal Protection has distributed money from PETA to PCRM in the past and, until very recently, did both groups' books. Barnard and PETA head Ingrid Newkirk are both on the foundation's board.

I point this out to demonstrate the purely political agenda involved with the contents of this book.

Prior to the development of biosynthetic insulin in 1922, doctors routinely treated diabetes with an extremely LOW CARB diet. There is a free booklet on the Internet called "Diabetic Cookery" which was published in 1917 that clearly reflects the ROUTINE PROTOCOL in treating diabetes at that time (older doctors of that pre 1922 era who used an extremely Low Carb protocol could actually "cure" many of their patients - AS LONG AS THEY STAYED WITH THE REGIMEN... compare that with babies born with Type One Diabetes who rarely lived to their first birthday).

And yet the opposite of that approach is what "Doctor" Bernard proposes. In other words, a protocol that will WORSEN diabetes!

It would also be excellent to read books and articles by Gary Taubes. His article "What If It's All Been a Big Fat Lie" (from the NYT, actually many years ago) is available online.

For years I followed the American Diabetic Diet (low carb) and never was able to reach normal blood sugar levels even with exercise. And I felt bad and tired all the time. After 6 weeks on Neal Barnard's program, my numbers are in a normal healthy range. I am eating as much as I like and eating carbs. I feel great and have more energy and have lost 32 pounds so far! I am not going back to the American Diet. A vegan diet is the way to go for better health and higher energy and lower weight! This book and program is highly recommended for quick results!!!
