Flat Belly Diet! Diabetes
Lose Weight, Target Belly Fat, and Lower Blood Sugar With This Tested Plan From the Editors of PreventionBook - 2010
The magic ingredient behind the New York Times best-selling Flat Belly Diet!--monounsaturated fatty acids (or MUFAs)--may not only target stubborn belly fat, but may also help treat the underlying cause of type 2 diabetes: insulin resistance. The 5-week program includes a sensible diabetes-friendly diet that teaches you how to incorporate pasta, chocolate, and other "forbidden" foods--along with a MUFA at every meal--into over 150 sumptuous, satisfying dishes.
Flat Belly Diet! Diabetes by Liz Vaccariello also includes a gentle walking-based exercise plan, stress reduction exercises, advice on how to work with one's doctor and diabetes management team, and a journal to help track blood sugar. In just 5 weeks, 11 men and women who tried the plan lost as much as 12 pounds, improved their A1c levels, and lowered their cholesterol and blood pressure levels.
