If you want more weight-loss motivation, pick up a copy of 101 Weight Loss Tips For Preventing And Controlling Diabetes. Co-authored by Anne Daly, MS, RD, BC-ADM, CDE, Linda Delahanty, MS, RD, LD, and Judith Wylie-Rosett, EdD, RD, this American Diabetes Association publication will help you to lose the weight and keep it off -- once and for all.
Quick weight loss diets (I hate that word!) are only temporary fixes for the national obesity epidemic. If you're tired of tricky diets, you need a simple plan that will support good health for the rest of your life! In 101 Weight Loss Tips For Preventing And Controlling Diabetes you'll learn what reasonable weight loss really is, what to eat and when, what sets off your personal weight loss triggers, how to banish binge eating, how to evaluate a weight-loss program, whether weight loss drugs OR surgery are right for you, how emotions figure in the food triangle, what to do when you're not eating and why exercise may be (IS) the magic key to successful weight loss. Losing weight can save you more than money and make you a healthier person inside and out.
Authors Daly, Delahanty and Wylie-Rosett are three experts in the fields of nutrition and diabetes. Their combined experience will help you to avoid the risk of developing diabetes and, if you've already been diagnosed, to avoid the risk of serious complications by learning how to successfully lose your extra pounds and keep them off.
Enough said about weight loss tips -- the definitive question most folks with diabetes want answered is: What can I have to eat? The answer, of course, is there's no specific "diet" for diabetes because there are just too many individual variables. Your age, health status, amount of exercise you get, dietary restrictions (i.e., low-salt or low-cholesterol), need for a weight loss program, and so on are elements which factor into your individual eating plan.
Each person with diabetes needs a guide or outline, specifically designed for his or her individual needs, and then he can select from almost any food available within the range of choices for his daily meal plan. Once your plan is developed by a nutritionist, registered dietitian or health care professional, you're ready to select recipes from any number of cookbooks available for healthy eating and/or diabetic concerns. Once you've established your personal plan you can embark on your search for the perfect cookbook to meet your needs.
