    Great for those wanting to transition from the SAD diet! Ever thought of prediabetes as a gift? Well it is! You've been given a chance to change your diet and live a much healthier life from here on out. You do not need to let this warning turn into a type 2 diabetes diagnosis. It's YOUR choice! This is the upbeat encouragement that the author begins her book with. Chapter 1 is all about understanding prediabetes. Got questions? Hopefully this chapter will answer them for you. Do your own research Great for those wanting to transition from the SAD diet! Ever thought of prediabetes as a gift? Well it is! You've been given a chance to change your diet and live a much healthier life from here on out. You do not need to let this warning turn into a type 2 diabetes diagnosis. It's YOUR choice! This is the upbeat encouragement that the author begins her book with. Chapter 1 is all about understanding prediabetes. Got questions? Hopefully this chapter will answer them for you. Do your own research on the so-called healthy fats. I was horrified to read that the author placed butter, coconut oil, lard, cream and prime rib in the same category as margarine and shortening. There is NO comparison. Purchase grass-fed butter and beef along with NON-HYDROGENATED lard and these fats are WAY healthier than what the author condones canola oil to be. Canola oil is one of the most highly processed, deodorized, rancid oils out there. Avoid it if you can and choose a cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil, butter or cold-pressed coconut oil. Did you know that your brain is over 60% fat? Your body needs some healthy saturated fats. There is evidence out there that proves that vegetable oils are NOT safe to consume in large amounts and truly upset the omega 3/ omega 6 balance. Diseases have become more prevalent since Americans switched out animal fats for vegetable ones so use with caution. At the end of the book you will find measurement conversions, the index and the Dirty and Clean list. What is that you may ask? The Dirty Dozen is a list of the top 12 fruits and vegetables that have the most pesticides. If at all possible you want to purchase the items in this list organically to avoid exposing your body to the nasties. Whilst I have critiqued the advice in this book pretty hard, there is definitely some good advice in here, especially for those who have been eating the SAD (Standard American Diet) up to now and are ready to make a change. You will find a two week recipe plan followed by long term, helpful advice. This is more than just a diet change, it is a lifestyle change. The recipes are the first baby steps you need to take in order to change your diet. Whilst I was disappointed to see some recipes contained white sugar it is WAY less than the traditional recipes out there. The Chocolate Pudding is absolutely DELICIOUS! This recipe uses honey as do some others. Purchase RAW honey not the processed stuff that you can find at the regular grocery store. Once you get used to using less white sugar you can explore the more blood sugar friendly, REAL sweeteners. Many of the recipes use processed broths. Once again, not all broths are created equal. BE CAREFUL and when you are able, start making your own or use your own seasonings to substitute the broth. SO would I recommend this book despite of all that I have said above? Yes but only if you are clueless on how to cook a balanced, healthy meal and have a desire to turn your unhealthy lifestyle upside down. I was provided an advanced copy of this book by the publisher. That has not influenced my review. Thanks, Liz

Released 25th June 2019 Originally published on my blog: Nonstop Reader. Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover. The Prediabetes Action Plan and Cookbook is exactly as described. This is a (relatively) simple and no-nonsense guide to understanding insulin resistance, metabolism, and the implications of how diet and metabolism are interrelated. Author Cheryl Mussatto is a registered dietician with experience in endocrinology and her expertise with the subject matter comes through clearly. Released 25th June 2019 by Rockridge, it's 164 pages and available in paperback and ebook formats. The introductory material and first section define the concepts used throughout the book, explaining metabolic disease in a manner which is non-threatening, layman accessible, and not too technical. The second section includes recipes split into chapters with breakfasts, mains, sides&staples, and desserts. The recipes are appealing, simple, and made with easily sourced ingredients. The end sections include some metric conversions, ingredient information, resource links and more. It's worth noting that the ebook format has a handy interactive table of contents as well as interactive links and references throughout. This is a no-nonsense 'do-able' plan with included sample menus and recipes. I am very much a blind follower when it comes to recipes and diet plans and this one feels reasonable and achievable. For people with a diagnosis of insulin resistance, this would be a good and positive plan of action. My only quibbles with the book (and it's almost universal with the newer crop of cookery and lifestyle books the last year) is that there are very few photos of finished dishes and none of recipe preparation. None of the recipes are extremely complex, so the omission isn't crippling. The photos which are included are clear and appealing and are in color (see cover photo for an example). The other potential issue is that this book is aimed at readers who have no complicating factors, such as inflammatory or auto-immune disorders in addition to a diagnosis of pre-diabetes. Four stars. Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

She states that her more than thirty years experience as a health care professional, especially her time as a clinical dietician in an endocrinology clinic, have given her the insight and inspiration to help those with prediabetes achieve a manageable healthy lifestyle. Included in the book is an explanation of what "prediabetes" means--plus foods to avoid and foods to include, how to read a nutrition label, healthy meal plans and activity suggestions, and much more. The 75 recipes cover breakfast through dessert, and there's something there to please everyone. Here's a sampler of the many delicious dishes you will find: "Whole-Grain Breakfast Cookies"; "Mushroom, Zucchini, and Onion Frittata"; "Lentil and Vegetable Soup"; "Herb-Roasted Chicken Breast"; "Vegetable Rolls with Dipping Sauce"; "Sauteed Greens"; "Black Bean and Corn Salad"; "Sweet Potato Fries"; "Creamy French Dressing"; "Mushroom Gravy"; "Dark Chocolate Drops"; "Carrot Cake"; and "Chocolate-Zucchini Cupcakes". A nutritional breakdown is provided for each recipe. I couldn't resist making the "Dark Chocolate Drops". Very simple--melted dark chocolate is combined with chopped dried fruit, nuts, and seeds. The hard part was waiting for them to set until they were firm enough to eat. They were so good, and they would make a sweet-treat of a gift packed in a pretty tin and given to someone special.

I love the bullet point as a guide on how to speak to your physician and ask the right questions . The recipes included in this book look and sound delicious but simple enough for a week night meal and something if tried a few times could be a regular rotation and staple to a simple and healthy week night meal. I thoroughly enjoyed this informative resources and would highly recommend to anyone who is at risk or has a familial disposition to diabetes. If armed with this knowledge, the book is your tool to reverse or prevent diabetes altogether.

    I really like the layout of this cookbook. Not only do you get 75 recipes with a nice variety of flavors and cuisines covered, but the book provides a sound introduction to explaining what pre-diabetes is. This introduction explains why adjusting your meals can have an effect on whether you go on to develop diabetes or not. Now keep in mind, this is only working for diabetes developed as an adult, it is not meant as therapy for juvenile diabetes.

You will not be asked to run a marathon, but the book does a good job of introducing short and easy to adopt routines to generate a more active lifestyle. This book is recommended for people that are at risk for developing diabetes and for those that are concerned about diabetes because of a family history. It does make clear that an effective prevention to developing diabetes requires nutritional changes as well as modification of lifestyle to be effective. I received a free copy of the book from the publisher.

I admit the recipes are better for you than real food. But... I can go with diet improvements and exercise. Sleep is often difficult for those of us with disorders. It seems to me drinking that much water would precipitate a lot of peeing. This is a good reference book, but I still suggest a doctor’s evaluation and possibly glucose monitoring. The junk food the author suggests jettisoning would be a good start. Turning off the television, getting your butt off the sofa and going for a thirty minute walk each day could not hurt either.

    The advice in this book is too much like the standard American diet. I wrote a long review on Amazon. Go watch the YT video on the Ted talk by Sarah Hallberg. In this book they recommend too many carbs and too many white trash carbs. Too much fruit. In this book she recommends too many high inflammation foods such as grains and dairy which still do lead to diabetes and also lead to heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

    Thank you for making it simple to understand what pre-diabetes is and how with simple changes in your diet and adding exercises will make a dramatic improvement and reverse it. The recipe’s that follow the understanding of the types of foods to eat and avoid, make it so easy to create life changing meal choices. I never knew how much I didn’t know about diabetes and pre-diabetes.

    I am a pre diabetic. I tried some of the recipes for me and my family. Some of them, they enjoyed. Most of the recipes were easy to follow. I will definitely be using those recipes again. Thank you to NetGalley and Callisto Media for the E-ARC. This is my own opinion.

    Having diabetes, I was extremely interested in this topic to see what, if any, the differences were between the recommendations in this book and those that I adhere to. Found the information accurate and precise with the menus well thought out and would be rather easy to fit in with most American diets. With making small changes here and there, anyone could follow the ideas. My suggestion for to the author would be to add that the reader should find a local group to get emotional support as well Having diabetes, I was extremely interested in this topic to see what, if any, the differences were between the recommendations in this book and those that I adhere to.

    Good, but not great Seems that it is contradictory to what she said within the book as well as my reading of another author. Balancing out the carbs is difficult when considering lots of cheeses I don't care for. I like some cheeses, but I also have to be careful of eating too much cheese because it constipates the bowels. I am already on meds that do that. Good, but not great Seems that it is contradictory to what she said within the book as well as my reading of another author.
