Présentation de l'éditeur
The New York Times bestselling author of Eat to Live and Super Immunity and one of the country’s leading experts on preventive medicine offers a scientifically proven, practical program to prevent and reverse diabetes—without drugs.
At last, a breakthrough program to combat the rising diabetes epidemic and help millions of diabetics, as well as those suffering with high blood pressure and heart disease. Joel Fuhrman, M.D. Research director of the Nutritional Research Foundation, shows you how to live a long, healthy, and happy life—disease free. He offers a complete health transformation, starting with a diet with a high nutrient-per-calorie ratio that can be adapted for individual needs.
Dr. Fuhrman makes clear that we don’t have to “control” diabetes. Patients can choose to follow better nutritional guidelines that will control it for them, even before they have lost excess weight. The end result is a medical breakthrough—a comprehensive reversal of the disease.

I decided I'd try one or two of the less 'outrageous' recipes and go from there. That was just about a month ago and I'm still trying the recipes. One day about two weeks into eating this way, I had a hamburger and french fries. I'm not kidding, I felt so awful the next day I could barely function.
I have a freezer full of meat that I'm boxing up to take to the food bank. I gave a gallon of 1% milk away a few days ago. I'm also taking all noodles, pasta, etc.
I'm also eating steel cut oats and taking red rice yeast. My cholesterol was down almost 50% my last blood test.
So, like me, you can delude yourself into thinking you could never incorporate a diet like this into your lifestyle OR, you can try it and, like me, be amazed at how great it tastes, how fantastic it makes you feel and, wonder of wonders, you can eat as much as you want......and STILL lose weight!
I'm grateful to Dr. Fuhrman for all the research and work he's done to produce the book and the recipes. I truly think it's a life saver. I understand that his other book, 'Eat to Live', also has some great recipes.
I see on his website you can sign up, for a nominal sum, and get additional recipes and recommendations, etc., personally, I think that's, 'milking', it but, that's just my opinion. The more you become accustomed to fixing food this way, the more adventurous you'll become working with the recipes.
As an addendum to this review, it is now May 10 and I began eating as suggested by this book on January 21. When I began this way of eating, my blood sugar was 7.8 and my doctor wanted to start me on insulin...which I was VERY opposed to. I had my quarterly blood test on May 6th and my blood sugar is 6! NORMAL. I can think of no better recommendation for eating as recommended in this book. AND, although I stick to it about 99% I do use olive oil when I want to, I eat grilled shrimp on a caesar salad smothered in grated cheese occasionally. I love salsa and chips and have them once or twice a week so, it doesn't have to be so radical you won't stick with it. Tailor it to your life style and see what works and doesn't work for you. No one will stick to any diet that is so rigid they can't live normally.
Joel Fuhrman's new book, "The End of Diabetes" takes his seminal book on nutrition, "Eat to Live", and applies it to reversing diabetes. Those who are familiar with Fuhrman's work will know that the key to reversing the disease causing effects of the Standard American Diet (SAD) is nutritional excellence. He calls his approach to plant based, high nutrient eating a "Nutritarian" diet.
In "The End of Diabetes" Fuhrman is careful to lay out the causes of diabetes, the traditional approach to managing the disease and how these approaches fail to address the real problems creating the problem. The message is don't just treat the effects of diabetes, that's a losing game. Instead, eliminate the cause of the diabetes directly!
His approach is based on years of experience successfully treating those with chronic conditions that traditional medicine has failed to help. The book provides ample examples of folks who have been successful in their efforts to restore their health through the Nutritarian approach.
Included in the book:
* A brief guide to understanding diabetes
* Don't medicate, eradicate the disease
* A comparison of the SAD and the "Nutritarian" diet
* Reversing diabetes by understanding hunger - both true hunger and toxic
* What about high protein, low-carb diets
* Phenomenal fiber in beans - (did you know that there are really three types of fiber?)
* The truth about fat - (hint, you need good fats)
* The "Nutritarian" diet in action
* Six steps to achieving our health goals
* Special information for doctors and patients
* Menus (two weeks) and recipes
The book is a must have for those seeking to address the root cause of diabetes and those who want to reduce or eliminate the use of drugs to treat their disease.
I ordered the book and it was delivered the day after Christmas 2012 and I tore right into it. There's no secret today that controlling blood sugar levels is the main objective in the allopathic medical circles with the notion that lower blood sugar means less systemic damage - which is, theoretically true. Sadly though, those anti-hyperglycemic agents do little to control diabetes - they just attempt to control the symptoms of the disease. Too many people are under the impression that they can continue to eat the way they want as long as they have enough pills to cover up the problems.
Dr. Fuhrman takes a very radical, very different approach. While he is a medical doctor, of course, he uses some medicines but moderately and as conservatively as possible. His plan is very demanding, very strict, very planned-out, and very successful.
In other words, if you can follow a vegan or near-vegan diet to the exclusion of dairy, cheese, chicken, fish, animal flesh and products, soda, sugar, white flour, processed anything, AND plan out exercise, food, shopping lists, journal and get the support you need - you will probably meet with success on his plan.
Is his plan do-able for the average person with moderately high blood sugar that thinks they are doing "okay" because they see a doctor every 3 months to have monitoring and testing done, walk leisurely 20-30 minutes a day, and avoid deserts on most days? Well, probably not. The plan is strict, all-encompassing, and will seem out of reach for many.
Would I, as a Registered Nurse and Registered Health Coach promote and recommend this book and program? Yes, resoundingly so. However, I am also accepting and aware that much of what the good doctor has written will fall on a great deal of resistance and avoidance.
But: for those that are looking for a hard-core, serious, and carefully outlined path to be rid of or at least mitigate a disease that affects every cell of your body and every organ you have - this book is written for you. It isn't the ONLY path to eat wisely and exercise your way out of diabetes type 2 and the concomitant dangers and risks (blindness, kidney failure, weight gain, nerve pain, amputations, heart disease, stroke, etc), then this book will probably inspire and guide you.
It's a good book, well written, and science-based, but it will not appeal to many people in the general population of those with Diabetes type 2.
