Help! My Underwear is Shrinking! :  One woman’s story of how to eat right, lose weight, and win the battle against diabetes Book Cover Image

"Uh oh, my underwear is shrinking!" We'd like to believe that, wouldn't we? Standing in front of the mirror, ample belly and thighs stretching the fabric of over-worked undergarments ... we'd like to believe that it was the underwear doing the shrinking and not our bodies doing the growing. Unfortunately, that's not usually the case. But why? We try to eat right, we try to exercise. Where are all of these extra pounds coming from? As this book will show you, from some often overlooked and unexpected places. And to make things painless, you'll learn from someone else's experience -- the easiest and best way to understand something new.

So what are you waiting for? Make that underwear grow, not shrink. Fit into pants you haven't worn in years (they're probably back in style). Stop feeling helpless about your weight and your diabetes. With Help! My Underwear Is Shrinking!, you've got all the tools you need to drop pounds and get your diabetes under control.

On a slightly lighter note, Help! My Underwear Is Shrinking! by Jo Ann Hattner, MPH, RD, Ann Coulston, MS, RD, and E. Michael Goodkind, BA, is written for overweight people who are prone to adult onset diabetes, have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes or are faced with the risk of diabetes.

Enter Tiffany, a working mother with pounds to lose and a family history of diabetes, who has recently been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Step by step, you'll accompany Tiffany on her journey to a successful weight loss, healthier lifestyle and a better understanding and management of her diabetes through her participation in the Carbohydrate Countdown program.
