For most people with diabetes, the first line of defense is adding exercise to the daily routine. Everyone with diabetes should be getting some physical activity into their lifestyle. The key to good diabetes self-care is simple: stay active by making the most of the activities that are already part of a person's daily life. The "I Hate to Exercise" Book for People with Diabetes shows people with diabetes how to exercise safely and to add exercise to their lifestyle with minimal difficulty. Readers learn how to ease into more exercise, build an active lifestyle, create a fun, low-impact walking program, set realistic goals, chart and evaluate progress. The "I Hate to Exercise" Book for People with Diabetes features more than 60 photographs of models performing the specific exercises in the book. Most of these exercises use very simple equipment: a sturdy chair, some hand weights, and some elastic bands.
Approximately 208,000 Americans under age twenty have diagnosed diabetes, and the number is growing at an alarming rate. From 2001 to 2009, the number of American children diagnosed with type 1 diabetes rose 23 percent; for type 2 diabetes it rose 21 percent. While scientists and government organizations assess the reasons for the increase, parents are left to deal with its day-to-day ramifications, and to guide their children through the discovery and treatment process.Jeff Hitchcock, the editor of this volume, was in desperate need of advice for how to best support his young daughter after her diagnosis. When he searched for support, he was shocked by how little information existed. So he started his own support group, Children with Diabetes. And now, more than twenty years later, Children with Diabetes has answered more than twenty thousand questions from other parents, gets more than twenty thousand daily hits on its website, and has a highly respected Diabetes Team, a wealth of on-call experts for parents in need of support. In this volume, Jeff has collected a whopping 101 tips for parents. The tips answer questions such as: What does the diagnosis mean? How do I get help? Should I change my child's eating habits? What does insulin mean, and how is it used? And what should I tell my child's teacher? For ease of reference, they're categorized, so answers can quickly and easily be found. They're also provided in simple, jargon-free, and easy-to-understand language.

With 2-Day Diabetes Diet, there are no forbidden foods and no carb-counting. You just need to restrict what you eat for 2 days a week. You will see the pounds drop off, your blood sugar levels stabilize, and your waist shrink.Diet just 2 days a week to drop the pounds and dodge type 2 diabetes In a recent study, researchers in the UK found that restricting carbohydrates just two days per week was superior to a standard, daily calorie-restricted diet for both reducing weight (about 9 pounds lost vs 5 pounds) and lowering insulin levels (reduced by 22% vs 4 %). Based on this and other research indicating that safe weight loss is the key to reversing and preventing diabetes, Reader's Digest has partnered with registered dietitian and diabetes expert Erin Palinski to distill the latest science to create an easy-to-follow plan that allows people with diabetes to have their cake--and other carbs--and still keep their blood sugar under control. A diagnosis of diabetes can be overwhelming and frightening, and even many of those who have lived with diabetes for years often struggle with the question of what they can eat. The 2-Day Diabetes Diet makes it simple--there are no forbidden foods and no carb-counting. You just need to restrict what you eat for 2 days a week--and research suggests you will see the pounds drop off, your blood sugar levels stabilize, and your waist shrink. On those 2 days a week, you follow the low-carb "Power Burn" program, and consume approximately 600 calories of selected foods. What does that look like on your plate? How about a 2-egg omelet with onions and peppers plus yogurt for breakfast; a hearty bowl of carrot soup plus fresh fruit for lunch; meatloaf and broccoli for dinner with milk; and a cup of sweet grapes for a snack? Or Canadian bacon and spinach for breakfast with a cup of milk; vegetable soup and half a banana topped with peanut butter for lunch; grilled chicken and zucchini over pasta for dinner; and an orange with a cup of milk for a snack. With real delicious food filling your tummy, you won't believe it all adds up to only about 600 calories. For the rest of the week, you follow a delicious 1500-calorie-a-day Mediterranean-style eating plan--we call these "Nourishment" days. You can enjoy a bounty of brightly colored fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and even a few treats. The book will include:
- A 2-week day-by-day meal plan that lays out sample Power Burn and Nourishment days
- More than 60 meal options, including restaurant and frozen food options, so you can customize the menus to your taste and lifestyle
- More than 50 delicious diabetes-friendly recipes
- An optional easy walking and strength-training program to boost results even more
- Stress-reducing exercises to help you ward off cravings and reduce hunger
- Success stories from the 10 men and women who tried the plan with amazing results
The plan is designed to be flexible--you can do your Power Burn days whenever works for you, and you can personalize almost any meal to suit your tastes--and will work for both people with type 2 diabetes and those at risk.
According to recent statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 34.9 percent or 78.6 million U.S. adults are obese. In addition, about 17 percent, or 12.7 million U.S. children, between the ages of 2 to 19, are obese. In addition, obesity-related conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and even some cancers are increasing.

Discover the groundbreaking method to defeat diabetes without drugs using the step-by-step diet plans and recipes from #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Michael Mosley.The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet is a radical new approach to the biggest health epidemic threatening us today... Our modern diet, high in low-quality carbohydrates, is damaging our bodies--producing a constant overload of sugar in our bloodstream that clogs up our arteries and piles hidden fat into our internal organs. The result has been a doubling in the number of type 2 diabetics, as well as a surge in those with a potentially hazardous condition--prediabetes. It is now known that even moderately elevated blood sugar levels can trigger heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer. But scientists have recently demonstrated that you can prevent and even reverse type 2 diabetes with a simple change in diet and lifestyle. Drawing on the work of Dr. Roy Taylor--one of the UK's foremost diabetes experts--and his own experience as a one-time diabetic, Dr. Michael Mosley presents a groundbreaking, science-based, 8-week plan for diabetics who want to reverse their condition (and then stay off medication). He also offers a more flexible regime for people interested in the extensive health benefits to be gained from lowering their blood sugar levels and shedding dangerous fat. As Dr. Mosley says, it is never too late to act.
