Diabetes used to be rare and clear. One boy in the school had Type 1 and a friend of a friend's granny had Type 2. We now see adults being diagnosed with Type 1 and children developing Type 2. There are over 400 million diabetics world-wide - four times as many as in 1980. The vast majority of these have Type 2 - sometimes judged as a `lifestyle' disease. The traditional view of diabetes is that is it a "chronic and progressive" condition and that nothing can be done about it. Serious complications include loss of eyesight, amputations and death. This book has gathered together some of the finest minds working in the field of diabetes and diet. The result is a collection of chapters by thought leaders, academics and doctors addressing the big issues. What is diabetes? What are the different types? What causes it? Who gets it? Why do we eat so much carbohydrate? Why do diabetics die of heart disease? Why do athletes commonly get Type 2 diabetes? The writers in this book approach diabetes from many different angles, but they all share one common belief: Diabetes does not need to be "chronic and progressive." Both Type 1 and Type 2 can be substantially alleviated and the latter can be `put into remission.' Let us tell you how...

From acclaimed author Dr. Jason Fung, a revolutionary guide to reversing diabetes.In 2016, Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his bestselling book, The Obesity Code. Now he's set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes.Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease--a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting--not medication.In The Diabetes Code, Dr. Fung proposes a new, evidence-based way to break the cycle of high blood glucose and increased insulin resistance. Drawing from the latest in medical research, he outlines the impact of diet and lifestyle in type 2 diabetes and offers simple, easy-to-follow advice for preventing and reversing its course, complete with helpful charts and illustrations.

A groundbreaking study that reveals how decades of misleading science and policy unjustly demonized the high-fat diet, which might actually be our healthiest option. For the past 60 years we have been told that a low-fat diet can protect against obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Yet despite many of us taking this advice in the developed West, we are now in the midst of an obesity epidemic that is breeding serious health problems. Recent more rigorous scientific work has overturned some of the shoddier theories of earlier decades to demonstrate conclusively that we have been needlessly avoiding red meat, cheese, whole milk, and eggs for decades, and that we can now, guilt-free, welcome these delicious foods back into our lives.

Dish up the red meat, eggs, and whole milk In this well researched and captivating narrative, veteran food writer Nina Teicholz proves how everything we ve been told about fat is wrong.

For decades, Americans have cut back on red meat and dairy products full of bad saturated fats. We obediently complied with nutritional guidelines to eat heart healthy fats found in olive oil, fish, and nuts, and followed a Mediterranean diet heavy on fruits, vegetables, and grains. Yet the nation s health has declined. What is going on?

In "The Big Fat Surprise," Teicholz reveals how sixty years of nutrition science has gotten it so wrong: how overzealous researchers have made basic scientific mistakes that, through a mix of ego and bias, allow dangerous misrepresentations to become dogma, and how scientists who dared oppose this consensus have been ostracized. For eight years, Teicholz has pored over the massive research literature and interviewed hundreds of leading experts to unravel the shockingly distorted claims of nutrition studies. She brings these researchers to life and shows how their ambitions, loyalties, and rivalries have undermined a field of research already full of difficult pitfalls.

With a lively narrative style akin to Michael Pollan s in "The Omnivore s Dilemma" and the scientific rigor of Gary Taubes in "Good Calories, Bad Calories," Teicholz convincingly upends the conventional wisdom about "all "fats. Her groundbreaking claim is that more dietary fat leads to better health, wellness, and fitness. Science shows that reducing the saturated fat in our diets has been disastrous for our health as a nation, and we can, guilt-free, welcome these whole fats back into our lives."
