The Prediabetes Diet Plan: How to Reverse Prediabetes and Prevent Diabetes through Healthy Eating and Exercise

Hillary Wright. Ten Speed, $15.99 trade paper (256p) ISBN 978-1-60774-462-7
Though registered dietician Wright (The PCOS Diet Book) focuses on prediabetes (a condition in which blood sugar levels are higher than normal) and diabetes, her recommendations can be applied by almost any adult. Wright’s latest book explains basic concepts of prediabetes, insulin-resistance conditions (such as metabolic syndrome and polycystic ovary syndrome), and diabetes, then delves into a more detailed discussion of insulin function, insulin resistance, and the metabolic processing of blood sugar, thus laying the groundwork for a series of comprehensive diet strategies. Wright guides readers in how to calculate carbs from calories, control portions, snack, and even dine out. Her smart suggestions are also applicable for those with, or concerned about, cardiovascular disease. In addition to tips about exercise, supplements, how to grocery shop, and read labels, Wright offers an extensive selection of sample meal plans and resources in this well-researched book. If there is one criticism, it’s that the title might restrict the book to a diabetic or pre-diabetic audience. Whether readers are looking for a prediabetes diet plan or for a no-nonsense strategy to better health, this book delivers. Agent: Judith Riven, Judith Riven Literary. (Nov.)
