Product description

Health and weight management can seem overwhelming, and even frightening, to the more than 23 million Americans who suffer from type 2 diabetes, as well as the 79 million pre-diabetic adults. "The Mayo Clinic Diabetes Diet" presents two easy-to-follow phases that work--Lose It! and Live It! The diet is based on principles of "The Mayo Clinic Diet," which is designed to help people safely lose 6-10 pounds in two weeks and then continue to lose weight until they achieve a healthy weight they can maintain for a lifetime. The Lose It! phase of "The Mayo Clinic Diabetes Diet" is a simple, straight-forward, two-week plan that encourages quick but safe weight loss that can help lower blood sugar. The Live It! phase of the diet offers basic and manageable steps and lifestyle changes and choices that are designed to help participants lose one to two pounds a week until a healthy weight is reached, and then keep the pounds off. Mayo Clinic's weight-loss and nutrition experts have packed this book with meal plans, practical solutions, and specific tips on how to improve health and lose weight safely. "The Mayo Clinic Diabetes Diet" tackles all the familiar obstacles that get in the way of weight loss--dislike of exercise, distaste of healthy food, too little time to cook well, a too hectic schedule, struggles with cravings, and minimal support from family and friends. It is a reliable and safe companion for losing weight and controlling diabetes, beginning immediately and into the future. "This diabetes diet isn't a fad; it's about changing your habits for the better," states Donald Hensrud, M.D., Mayo Clinic specialist in nutrition and internal medicine and medical editor-in-chief. "With "The Mayo Clinic Diabetes Diet," people can truly manage diabetes, eat well, lose weight and enjoy life."

Author information

Mayo Clinic took root in farm fields near Rochester, Minn., in the late 1800s. It grew from the medical practice of a country doctor, William Worrall Mayo, and the partnership of his two sons, William J. and Charles H. Mayo - affectionately known as Dr. Will and Dr. Charlie. The brothers' innovative ideas and tireless work in learning and creating new surgical techniques attracted international attention. Physicians from around the world came to watch the Mayo brothers perform surgery. The Mayo brothers invited other doctors to join them, forming teams of medical experts. Today, Mayo Clinic - one of the world's oldest and largest multispecialty group practices - comprises more than 45,000 physicians, scientists, nurses and other staff at its three locations in Rochester, Minn., Jacksonville, Fla., and Scottsdale, Ariz., and its regional community-based health care practices.
