Chromium Picolinate promotes sugar and carbohydrate metabolism. Chromium picolinate is a necessary factor in carbohydrate and sugar metabolism. The trace mineral chromium plays a major role in the sensitivity of cells to insulin. Insulin helps cells absorb and use glucose effectively. Considerable evidence indicates that chromium functions as a co-factor in all insulin-regulating activities. Supplementing the diet with chromium has been shown to significantly improve insulin action; decrease fasting glucose and triglycerides levels; and increase the HDL-cholesterol level by enhancing insulin sensitivity.

Let me introduce you to the Low GI Diet … For more than two decades, food nutritionists have been studying the effects of carbohydrate-rich foods on the body. For a while, they believed that all carbs were the same, that they were all excellent sources of energy for the body.
At one point, it was thought that excluding all forms of carbohydrates from the diet was healthy. This is one of the central concepts in Dr. Atkins’ controversial low-carb diet and remains under much debate until today.
After concerted efforts, though, experts found out that not all carbohydrates were the same. Some carbohydrates could actually be more beneficial for your health than others. This is the guiding principle that led to the Low GI Diet.
There are no restrictions with the Low GI Diet, only a clear reminder to always go for the best kinds of food for your body. Besides, the more restrictive one gets, the higher the chances of having another one of those frustrating diet fails. This diet is not about excluding an entire chunk of food choices from your daily menu. It is a simple lifestyle change, not one so drastic, one that includes only the right foods for you.
Controlling Diabetes. Keeping Blood Sugar Low, By eating Low-Carb Soups. This is the diabetic version of my “Soup Yourself Thinner” book. They’re both essentially the same, so don’t buy both.
This book has three distinct parts.
First, it contains my own diabetic story, and how I ignored and mis-managed my own condition for years. Yup, I was a fool thinking it would all go away. I had no bad symptoms, so I let the whole thing slide. It was the worst thing I could have done; then I got prescribed with insulin pens, and had to do something about it. Soups.
So, second, there’s the revelation of my low-carbohydrate soups, and how they changed my blood sugar numbers for good. I now have great figures in my ‘self test logbook’, and you can too. It’s easy and affordable. I make soups for less than 99c for a big bowl. And I’m talking a BIG bowl.
I look at the diabetic ramifications of the new buzzphrase; Carbohydrate Intolerance, and how I incorporated this new information into my soups.
Third, there’s the method of soup-making, that changed my life. I go through the whole process, in very simple terms. There’s nothing technical about making soup, trust me.
There’s a recipe section with many different soups, and even some stews and chilies that fit into the program. All low-carb or no-carb.
This soup-making diet changed my life, and it can help you too.
If you’re struggling with your blood sugar numbers, and want to make a change, get soup-making today!

Two colleagues of the late Dr. Robert Atkins take on the obesity epidemic’s deadly twin: type 2 diabetes. Dr. Mary Vernon and Jacqueline Eberstein, RN, adapt the carb-cutting, fat-allowing Atkins nutritional approach as a preemptive strike against this fast-growing killer. Diabetes–defined here as a condition in which glucose or blood sugar is above the normal range–is viewed as a preventable problem. “What we hope we have created in this book is a realistic and practical guide to wiping out type 2, one person at a time.” Since obesity is the major risk factor for diabetes, they begin with the “fat lie” (i.e., the belief that fat causes obesity) to voice the Atkins mantra: low fat means high carbs and high carbs are broken down into sugar. With a convincing mix of essay/picture testimonials, clinical studies, quizzes, checklists, and menu planners and recipes, Vernon and Eberstein make the case for diet and lifestyle changes to alter the metabolism of those at risk for diabetes. They have done a yeoman’s job of translating Atkins’s medical nutrition advice into a step-by-step program. One can quibble about their missionary zeal or the omnipresent eggs in the breakfast sample menus. At times, the scientific data are overly detailed or hidden within a quiz. Thankfully, there is a spot-on summary of the book’s paradigm-busting ideas in the appendix. — Barbara Mackoff

Diabetics are often told that weight loss can work miracles for controlling blood sugar levels. The truth is, controlling blood sugar levels can work miracles not just for weight loss, but also for completely avoiding every complication of type 2 diabetics and sometimes for reversing the disease altogether. Even better, the secret to controlling your blood sugar levels is not some esoteric diet of foods you do not really want to eat. The secret to controlling your blood sugar levels and later losing weight lies in controlling the cravings that send your appetite out of control. Finding reliable information for treating type 2 diabetes practically requires a diabetes detective. Nurse Beverleigh Piepers and bestselling author Robert Rister combine tens of thousands of hours of one-on-one experience with type 2 diabetics with an in-depth understanding of the latest scientific advances to give you the simple techniques you need to make your choice of diet work for you to get your type 2 diabetes into control. Learn the simple techniques your doctor usually does not have time to tell you in Staying on Your Diabetes Diet. Contents: Chapter 1. Test, Test, and Test Some More. A short-term program of intensive testing of your blood sugar levels may reveal that your blood sugars respond less to carbohydrate and more to the stress induced by certain foods. Chapter 2. Treat Low Blood Sugars. The ravages of appetite are sometimes prevented with just a tiny amount of “forbidden” carbohydrate. Chapter 3. Eat One Meal at a Time. The perils of three-hour diets and the promises of eating all you want of the right foods at the right time are revealed. Chapter 4. Be Sure to Eat Enough Carbohydrate. Type 2 diabetics have a special relationship with carbohydrate that usually can’t be fixed by avoiding carbohydrate entirely. Chapter 5. Don’t Eat Too Much Protein. The surprising, counterintuitive relationship between too much protein and blood sugar levels is explained. Chapter 6. Fight Fat with the Right Fat. Eating the right kinds of fat in the right ratios may not only help you lose weight, quickly, but more importantly also preserve pancreatic function. Chapter 7. Be Sure to Eat Your Water. Certain common foods ease appetite and make diabetes control much easier. Water content is key. Chapter 8. Rate Your Plate. There’s a simple way to avoid losing diabetes control and parties and buffets. Chapter 9. Keep Temptation Out of Sight. Out of sight, out of mind has a different meaning in the context of type 2 diabetes. Chapter 10. Make Every Bite Mouth-Watering. Nerve damage from diabetes can also affect the taste buds. Simple fixes can make the foods on your diet far more appealing. Don’t settle for advice that is appropriate to someone else’s case of diabetes. Discover the techniques that work for you to keep type 2 diabetes in control with STAYING ON YOUR DIABETES DIET.

After strictly adhering to the recommended regimen of daily blood draws, medication and extreme dietary adjustments over the course of many years, Leonida Lidman still found herself in great physical and emotional pain.
