The statistics are staggering. Thirteen million Americans have
been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes; another 5.2 million don't know
that they have it. During the past thirty years the diabetes rate
has tripled, and each year about 200,000 people die from
complications of the disease. The Centers for Disease Control
project that one out of every three children born in the year 2000
will develop the disease. But Type 2 diabetes is largely
preventable. Find out how you can avoid becoming a statistic.
As a respected physician and pioneer in the field of
complementary medicine, Dr. Robert C. Atkins recognized early on
that diabetes and obesity are twin epidemics, and that the way to
reverse both is to permanently change the way people eat. Yet much
of the mainstream medical establishment continues to advocate the
treatment of diabetes with insulin and other drugs, while
recommending a diet high in carbohydrates including sugar which
raises your blood sugar. What you'll learn from reading Atkins
Diabetes Revolution is that rather than correcting your metabolism,
such a diet can actually increase your risk of developing diabetes
-- and heart disease.
The Atkins Blood Sugar Control Program (ABSCP) helps you
identify the metabolic signposts that indicate trouble long before
the onset of Type 2 diabetes so you can stop it in its tracks. If
you already have the disease, the ABSCP offers you and your
physician a strategy for weight management and blood-sugar control,
while minimizing your exposure to drugs.
Atkins Diabetes Revolution presents a comprehensive lifestyle
program, including diet, exercise, and nutrient supplementation.
The book also contains meal plans, recipes, a fitness routine, and
case studies. This groundbreaking book, a fitting tribute to Dr.
Atkins, tackles one of the greatest health challenges you and your
family may ever face.
