    It is nonsense.
    Eat six times a day, eat fruit and wholegrain, do not eat saturated fat, do not eat much fat at all - not even good advice for a 'normal'.

    I downloaded it as soon as I saw your post and then went straight to the dietary advice in Chapter 5 - as soon as I read 'nutritious, balanced diet low in fats and containing a reasonable number of calories' I thought - here we go - then on the following page 'Consume whole grains and lean proteins' - I did read on for a dozen more pages, but basically - read and do the opposite for most of the advice is all I can say - or save your time unless you can read as fast as I do.

    For beginners and those needing a refresher course; in my opinion, I found the book very informative with some good tips. A reminder of what foods are helpful to having in your diet regularly. The importance of including nuts and other food sources etc.

    Regarding eating the 6 smaller meals per day,* that would be optional of course, for myself I would eat the 3 main meals and have 2-3 small snacks per day in between the main meals. That is my choice of course and up to the individual how they manage things and what works for them :)

    * - My main meals are not excessively big portions any way.

    Definitely worth a read for newly diagnosed (if you use Amazon Prime - its a free download)

    If anyone follows the guidelines in this book and gets normal results do let us know - it goes against just about everything that worked for me, but we are all different.

    That's where I was going wrong. I've been trying this and I've still got T1 diabetes. :rolleyes:

    Don't take it too hard - I suspect that a fair few type twos would also still be in the diabetic range following the guidelines in that book.

    Being type 1, I’m very much aware of the difference between type 1 and 2 and realise the only way the (any) book is going to reverse my condition, is if it came with a free gift of a lovely shiny spanking brand new pancreas...which I’m guessing is highly unlikely:rolleyes:.

    My comment was just in a similar vein to Matt’s and Nonethewiser’s. :)

    Well that’s very nice of you Jodee, thank you :)

    Hmm, how odd it would feel not to have the condition after all this time...I’d give it a bash though:p
