The scientifically proven system for reversing diabetes without drugs
I don’t have diabetes so I didn’t buy this book for reversing it. Some relatives have had some issues with high blood sugar levels, so to me, it is more about prevention and because even though I like this diet I wanted a medical approach and research studies to support it.
This program for reversing diabetes is all about diet. Basically, it is vegan and low fat. Yes, omits meat, dairy, and eggs. It offers alternatives to these products. The purpose is to regain insulin sensitivity, allow blood sugar to come down and lose weight in the process. It favors food with a low glycemic index and exercise.

There are chapters focused on organs affected by diabetes like eyes, kidneys, heart, and nerves. Other chapter deals with keeping the diet on track while traveling, at restaurants and social events in general. Another topic is dealing with family members because it is not easy sometimes. There are other chapters about menus and recipes, supplements and working with the doctor to track progress.
