I have read many books on Type II Diabetes, which I have, but none have both persistently pointed to the cause–grains, sugar, too much of all of it–while gently showing how to change it. I stress eat and I love pasta, bread, toast, bagels, rice, especially at night. Somehow, Dr. Poothullil’s clear but also kind direction about why and how we get diabetes really helped me recommit to changing what I am eating. I also like the simplicity of it–avoid these foods (unfortunately, the ones you want), and eat other foods. Eat these new foods slowly and enjoy them. Enjoy being alive and watch your blood sugar numbers drop.
