Description from the Publisher:

Diabetes has hit epidemic levels, affecting up to 17 million Americans. Even children and adolescents are developing type 2 diabetes, once considered an illness that occurred in adults. Despite these statistics, people with diabetes can control their illness, thanks to innovations in insulins, insulin pens and pumps, and nutrition. Better Homes and Gardens Carb Counterís Diabetic Cookbook can be a key tool in managing diabetes and improving quality of life. The book features the most current meal-planning strategy recognized by the American Diabetes Association: counting carbohydrates. Simply put, carbohydrate is the nutrient that has the greatest effect on blood glucose levels, and eating about the same amount of carbohydrate at the same times each day keeps these levels in range. More than 220 mouthwatering healthful recipes, a week's sample menus, and portion control tips make carb counting easy and enjoyable. Complete nutrition information accompanies each recipe. This cookbook also contains information about prediabetes risk factors, ways to prevent the illness, plus a wealth of resources.

Editorial Review From Diabetic Gourmet Magazine:

Speaking of Carb-counting, the new Better Homes and Gardens Carb Counters Diabetic Cookbook is another winner. With an introduction by Hope S. Warshaw, MMSc, RD, CDE, co-author of the "American Diabetes Association's Complete Guide to Carb Counting" and "The Diabetes Food & Nutrition Bible," carb-counting is made easy.

The Carb Counters Diabetic Cookbook begins with Warshaw's introduction to the basics of counting carbohydrates. Written in a question-answer format, Warshaw's expertise in the area of carb-counting is thorough and easy to understand. Carbohydrates are found in all foods (starches, fruits, vegetables, and milk) except meats. You'll find a handy chart on the number of carbohydrates your body needs on a daily basis according to your caloric intake. This chart is a great visual aid in helping to break down the learning curve to understanding how the carb-counting system works. Sample menus for a full week of breakfast, lunch, and dinners, based on 1,600 to 1,800 calories per day, are suggested at the end of the section. For more information, you'll find several internet and other resources, as well.

In addition to the complete carb count of each recipe, all are accompanied by a complete nutritional analysis with diabetic exchanges. There is a definite drawback in the difficulty in reading the nutritional information, however, which is printed in a lime-green color and very small print. It's a definite disadvantage for those who are visually-impaired.

If you can live with carb counts at a glance for each analysis, the recipes are worth it! And, if you've visited the Cinnamon Hearts website in recent months, you'll see how much we like this cookbook -- more than a few of these delicious recipes have starred in several of our recent food features. Better Homes and Gardens Carb Counters Diabetic Cookbook, ©2003, is published by the Meredith Corporation, Des Moines, IA.
