If you've been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, you're probably
concerned about a host of health issues and may already be thinking
of the coming dietary changes. As your doctor probably explained, a
good eating plan, low weight, and an active lifestyle are among the
most important factors in limiting the disease's impact and in
continuing to live a full and healthy life. But you don't know
where to begin.
Enter Carol Guber, a twenty-year veteran of the food industry who
holds a master's in nutrition and is a nationally recognized
authority on food and nutrition. When she was diagnosed with type 2
diabetes, she refused to accept the diagnosis lying down. Realizing
that she was going to have to approach life in a new and vibrant
fashion, Carol launched herself into what she describes as
"guerilla warfare" against diabetes. She knew she was in for some
changes, having been accustomed to gourmet meals and the finest,
richest foods. And she also knew the consequences of ignoring her
doctor's advice. With her trademark gusto, she was soon enjoying a
whole new menu and working out unabashedly alongside gym babes.
Carol tried to choose physical activities that would be fun and
dynamic, knowing that she had to enjoy herself as well as engage
her mind, body "and" spirit in order to stay healthy. So she began
running on a treadmill. She started to lift light weights. She even
took up boxing. After several months, her spirited war on diabetes
had helped her lose weight and reduce her glucose by 40 percent.
Now she hosts workshops for men and women trying to develop their
own diabetes-fighting lifestyle. She likes to say that you have to
make a whole new life for yourself-often one that endsup being
fuller and more active than you've ever dreamed. In her "Type 2
Diabetes Life Plan," Carol shares her encouraging insight, bringing
us with her along the path toward a richer and more vital life with
"Going beyond her personal success, Carol provides a complete guide
to a medical condition that is becoming increasingly widespread.
Covering biology, physiology, genetics, medication, and lifestyle
issues, she also offers day-to-day advice for finding the mental
stamina to stay active and make healthy dietary selections, even
when dining out or away from home. Offering motivation as well as
information, "Carol Guber's Type 2 Diabetes Life Plan "is a true
lifeline for all of us living with diabetes from a remarkable woman
who's living proof of victory.
