Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Five Star Reviews!

“Amazing Resource –I loved this book! The recipes and suggestions for healthy eating are superb! Everyone could benefit from the information contained here. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to improve their health, as well as diabetics. You can even eat dessert!”

Great Food Guide for DiabeticsAs a sufferer of Type 2 diabetes, I’m always on the lookout for sources of good information about managing my diet and lifestyle.

Even better, she includes 18 recipes for breakfast meals, appetizers, lunch and dinner suggestions and even desserts. I’m cooking my first one today!”

The recipes and pictures made me hungry. Great job.”

Diabetic Diet Plan – The Beginners Guide Healthy Eating & Keeping the Flavor!

My career exposes me to many individuals who have multiple medical issues relating to diabetes. Unfortunately, poor eating habits and mismanaging glucose (blood sugar) levels may have contributed to their poor health. Heart disease, loss of limbs, poor eye-sight or blindness, and kidney failure that requires dialysis, is common.

A year and one half ago my mother was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. My family immediately envisioned the worst as far as her future health. We knew a change in her eating habits would need to improve so my family committed to helping her with a lifestyle change.

Momma was raised in rural America where carbs and sugars were part of the staples of life. A common meal was meat (usually fried) and potatoes covered with lots of gravy, biscuits or cornbread lathered with butter, sweet tea, and dessert after every meal. And evidently, vegetables were not tasty enough naturally because equal parts of bacon or some kind of pork fat was always added.

Ironically, at that time my younger sister was dealing with gestational diabetes during her pregnancy so she volunteered to come over and “taste test” the new recipes I created, she’s always been helpful that way. After hours of researching the Internet gathering data and ideas, and trying recipes… I put together this guide to help Momma and others get started with their diabetic diet plan without giving up the delicious flavors of food… only the frustration.


Constant Hunger: Why We Can’t Stop Eating (Weight Loss Questions and Answers)

Friday, June 14th, 2013

Always Hungry?

Constant hunger isn’t normal, yet many of us never really feel satisfied, even right after eating. If you’re asking yourself, “Why am I always hungry?” you’re not alone. You might think never feeling full is all in your head, but that may not be the case at all. It can be a sign of diabetes symptoms or other medical conditions. It doesn’t necessary indicate a loss of self-control or out-and-out gluttony at all!

Never feeling satisfied even directly after eating a meal can be about emotional eating, but not necessarily. While emotional eating is extremely common, there are a number of physiological reasons for non-stop eating and feeling hungry all the time. Medications, depression, diabetes, hypothyroidism and even excess stomach acid can all provoke insatiable hunger that leaves the sufferer feeling guilty over their lack of control over non-stop eating.

The good news is once you have an idea what is behind your constant hunger, you can begin to deal with it and get back on the road to health and vitality. When you learn about what can provoke hunger, you can begin to begin to understand it and get the help that you need to conquer it for good. You can make out-of-control cravings a thing of the past with a little knowledge and help from your physician. It’s never too late to win the battle against constant hunger.

The Diverticulitis Cookbook: Feel Better, by Eating Better: 30 Day Meal Plan and Recipes

Friday, May 17th, 2013

Learn to Feel Better by Eating Better. The Diverticuliculitis Diet Cookbook will teach you how to prevent diverticulitis flareups from occurring. The book includes a 30 day meal plan and more than 110 easy to make, delicious recipes designed to heal your body. I would like to share with you my experience with Diverticular disease. Several years ago, my mother was diagnosed with Diverticulitis. We had never heard of this medical condition before, and at that time there was very little information about it. When we asked the doctor how to prevent a Diverticulitis attack from occurring again, his advice was don’t eat nuts and seeds! Over the next few years, she followed her general practitioner’s well-meaning advice, but still suffered several Diverticulitis attacks and had no relief from the pain. Sick and tired of the pain and being afraid of her next attack, both of us embarked on a journey to take her health into our own hands. Working with the esteemed Andrea Johnson, a well-known, registered clinical dietician and researcher, we developed a cookbook and meal plan that actually worked! The recipes were compiled based on their health value, high fiber content and because they taste really good. We wouldn’t have been able to get my picky-eater mom to eat our recipes if they weren’t absolutely yummy!! Not only that, they are easy to make. You don’t have to be a master chef or have loads of time to prepare these meals.

The Good Carb Cookbook: Secrets of Eating Low on the Glycemic Index

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

A complete guide and cookbook to selecting and using the best carbohydrates to lose weight, maintain blood sugar levels, and improve overall health.


Not all carbs are created equal. In fact, the latest dietary research shows that different carbohydrates have varying effects on the body, depending on the rate at which they raise blood sugar levels–also known as a food’s glycemic index (GI). Choosing a balance of foods that are low on the GI will speed weight loss and control diabetes, insulin resistance, and cardiovascular disease.


In The Good Carb Cookbook, Sandra Woodruff demystifies the carbohydrate confusion by explaining the real differences among carbohydrates (baked potatoes are high on the index, while sweet potatoes are low), and shares her secrets for eating low on the index. The book includes an invaluable table with hundreds of common foods and their glycemic index rating; more than two hundred recipes to get people cooking and eating low on the index; and tips to modify high-glycemic family favorites with low-glycemic ingredients, lose weight, maintain blood sugar, and achieve optimal health.

One bad carbohydrate can’t spoil the whole batch, but studies show that too many of the “wrong kinds” can lead to a slew of nasty health conditions, including obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Sandra Woodruff, author of several bestsellers (including Secrets of Fat-Free Cooking and Secrets of Cooking for a Long Life) goes far beyond the realm of breads and pastas to offer a comprehensive look at nutrition, followed by a trove of carbo-smart recipes. Healthy eating, Woodruff asserts, requires keen attention to the glycemic index (GI), “a ranking of foods based on their potential to raise blood sugar levels.” By choosing foods that rank low on the GI, and balancing higher GI foods with protein, she says, individuals will achieve better overall health. While the first section reads a bit like a college text (heavy with charts, grams, and serving sizes, plus all the numbers associated with the glycemic index), Woodruff gracefully applies this knowledge to real-life scenarios. Her meal-planning and dining-out tips accommodate a wide variety of eating habits and cuisines, with ample hints for hearty eaters, snackers, sweet-tooth sufferers, and those who enjoy international fare. More than 200 recipes include options for vegetarians, meat-and-potato types, adventurous chefs, and keep-it-simple cooks, without calling attention to any such stereotype. Two minor beefs: teaspoon and tablespoon appear in their unabbreviated forms, potentially making for easy errors; also, a fancy typeface makes reading the ingredients somewhat tricky. –Liane Thomas


Diabetic Diet Plan – The Beginners Guide to Healthy Eating & Keeping the Flavor!

Monday, May 6th, 2013

My career exposes me to many individuals who have multiple medical issues relating to diabetes. Unfortunately, poor eating habits and mismanaging glucose (blood sugar) levels may have contributed to their poor health. Heart disease, loss of limbs, poor eye-sight or blindness, and kidney failure that requires dialysis, is common.

A year and one half ago my mother was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. My family immediately envisioned the worst as far as her future health. We knew a change in her eating habits would need to improve so my family committed to helping her with a lifestyle change.

My mother, as bright and intelligent as she was at 67 years of age, (sorry Momma) had never in her life owned a cell phone or ever operated a computer, let alone own one. So when she asked me for a little help in finding some new diabetic recipes that actually would taste good and have some flavor, and not taste like cardboard like the doctor’s pamphlet recipes, I agreed.

Momma was raised in rural America where carbs and sugars were part of the staples of life. A common meal was meat (usually fried) and potatoes covered with lots of gravy, biscuits or cornbread lathered with butter, sweet tea, and dessert after every meal. And evidently, vegetables were not tasty enough naturally because equal parts of bacon or some kind of pork fat was always added.

I could see the frustration she was experiencing. She lost weight due partly to eating a balanced diet, and in part to not eating much at all because everything tasting so bland. I needed to find a starting point for her, to equip her with some basic tools that would define which foods to seek out and which ones to run from, how to meal plan to meet her nutritional needs, and feel as though she was able to make Daddy happy. And, what could she order when Daddy took her out to eat?

Ironically, at that time my younger sister was dealing with gestational diabetes during her pregnancy so she volunteered to come over and “taste test” the new recipes I created, she’s always been helpful that way. After hours of researching the Internet gathering data and ideas, and trying recipes… I put together this guide to help Momma and others get started with their diabetic diet plan without giving up the delicious flavors of food… only the frustration.

Low Carb Low Fat Diabetic Recipes – Control Weight Control Diabetes : Eating Well With Type 2 Diabetes – With WW Points + 2012

Monday, February 18th, 2013

Savory, satisfying foods prevail in this diabetic weight-loss themed cookbook. Think: roast Chicken stir- fry ww points + 4.6, Stuffed turkey tenderloins ww points + 4.4, Grilled chicken breasts with tomato- basil salsa ww points + 4.5.

The premise is that losing a modest amount of weight, just 10 or 15 pounds, lowers blood pressure and lowers blood sugar. Every recipe includes detailed information about calories, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, carbs, total sugar, dietary fiber and protein.

But before you start a diabetes weight loss plan, it’s important to work closely with your doctor or diabetes educator – because while you’re dieting, your blood sugar, insulin, and medications need special attention.

Develop your relationship with your medical provider and be sure to maintain contact about any questions, concerns or changes in your diabetes symptoms.

Controlling Diabetes. Keeping Blood Sugar Low, By eating Low-Carb Soups

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

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!

DIABULIMIA: Diabetes + Eating Disorders; What It Is and How to Treat It: A Guide for Individuals and Families; A Tool for Health Personnel

Monday, January 21st, 2013

“I am forty and have been battling with diabetes and eating disorders for twenty-five years… I am wheelchair bound and have no hope now… When I tried to find help there was not a single book that addressed this terrible thing… Please do something to help the young ones…” Outcries like this were the driving force behind the birth of this groundbreaking book. Grace Huifeng Shih, RD, MS brings this once-secret disease/disorder out into the open and offers hope to those suffering, their families, and their health providers. Diabulimia (ED-DMT1, clinicians’ term), a deadly combination in which people with type 1 diabetes manipulate insulin so they will lose weight, causes permanent injury if left untreated. Grace’s compassion and expertise in both eating disorders and diabetes; stories from her clients and their loved ones she works with everyday; along with the editing and review by 15 clinicians (endocrinologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, diabetes nurse practitioners, nurse managers, pediatricians, adolescent medicine physicians, ophthalmologists, nephrologists and neurologists) make this book invaluable for medical and non-medical readers alike. For individuals: The 18 stories here share the struggle individuals face, and the relief they find knowing they are not alone. The voice of diabulimia is finally heard! The chapter “Nutrition and Diabulimia” is designed to help those searching for a healthy, safe means of weight loss. For families and friends: Be encouraged and relieved to find recovery is possible through the multilayered treatment this book outlines. Learn how to recognize and circumvent the desperate ploys individuals with diabulimia use as subterfuge to avoid weight gain, and be better equipped to help them. For health personnel, educators and group leaders: Here, the pathology of this group of patients is explained, as are ways to identify high risk individuals through skillful interviewing. With chapters such as “Hospitalization, Step by Step Guidelines” and “What Works and What Doesn’t”, the book is a unique resource as well as an invaluable tool.

Saturday, January 12th, 2013

This groundbreaking plan teaches readers to outsmart blood sugar spikes so they can eat the carbs they love and still lose weight.

Starches are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to the nation’s weight problems. Starches spike blood sugar levels, which can make losing weight nearly impossible. Unfortunately, many of favorite foods—pasta, bread, rice—are the worst offenders. But who wants to cut out these delicious dishes and feel deprived?

By focusing on certain foods that slow the effect of starches on blood sugar, The Sugar Blockers Diet offers a smart eating strategy that can be maintained for life. These foods, called sugar blockers, include all kinds of everyday foods from steak or cheese to vinaigrette or a glass of wine. Learning how to include these foods at every meal will not only help readers lose weight, but also help them reverse insulin resistance and defend against diabetes.

In addition to a robust list of sugar blocking foods and strategies, the book includes:

    • more than 50 tantalizing, nutrient-rich recipes
    • an easy, fun walking plan proven to balance blood sugar and help the pounds melt away
    • a proven plan on which real men and women lost up to 18½ pounds and 9¼ inches in just 6 short weeks

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

As a patient, the author, Mrs. Curtis, relates her own experience in dealing with the renal diet. Through a positive approach, she demonstrates that sometimes when you “make the best of it,” the results are better than if the problem had not occurred. Fellow patients will recognize many of the author’s feelings and obstacles as their own. The second edition of THE RENAL PATIENT’S GUIDE TO GOOD EATING includes many new dishes as well as nutritional information for all recipes. This should make it easier for renal patients and their dietitians to determine how these dishes can best fit into their diet plans. The analyses can be used as a guide to appropriate serving sizes for each patient’s daily allowances of sodium, potassium and phosphorus. Great care has been taken to include complete nutrition information wherever possible. This cookbook is suitable for anyone. It does not separate the “dieters” from others. There will be no whispered requests for the salt shaker because the taste is there, in the form of herbs, spices, wine and other “allowed” flavorings. Especially valuable are the sections where salt is typically relied upon heavily, namely, meat, fish, poultry, sandwiches and vegetables. There are recipes ranging from appetizers to desserts, quick and simple to the more elaborate. The author provides guidelines for adjusting to a healthy heart diet, as well as to renal diets, which require more or less stringency. This book is certain to enlighten and inspire anyone with kidney disease, from the newly diagnosed to the more experienced. With this book, the doctor’s answer to his patient’s question “Could you give me some more ideas for meals?” can be answered with “I have just the book for you!”


The Vegetarian Diet for Kidney Disease: Preserving Kidney Function With Plant-based Eating

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Joan Brookhyser Hogan is a registered dietition who has packed this new book “The Vegetarian Diet for Kidney Disease,” with clearly stated, up-to-date information on the most effective methods for managing kidney disease. Her focus on vegetarian nutrition comes from a growing awareness of its value in wrestling kidney disease down to size, or, in the best-case scenario, stopping the progression of this destructive disease in it’s tracks. When the author first became a dietition several decades ago, it was a different story. Plant proteins were then considered inferior to animal proteins, a belief based on the erroneous conclusion that plants contained high levels of certain minerals thought to cause complications in chronic kidney disease. Thanks, however, to ongoing research in the intervening years, this false belief has since been reversed. Vegetarianism has not only become acceptable, it is now considered superior to animal-based diets for the prevention and treatment of chronic kidney disease. This valuable book has a great deal of specific informaion to assist you in implementing, or continuiing, a plant-based diet that can help, not harm, the health of your kidneys. Hogan first outlines the benefits of vegetarianism, and follows that wih chapters on the stages of Kidney disease, on common problems associated with the disease, and on the relationship of this disease to other disorders. An enlightening discussion of the link between kidneys and diet precedes a diet plan that also includes herbals, supplements, and other natural products, with a final chapter on detailed meal plans and recipes providing the core of the author’s program. Along with numerous, detailed tables and graphs and a smattering of case histories printed throughout, there are Appendices, Resources, and References situated in back that serve to round out the guidelines and highlight the benefits of this relevant book that anyone with chronic kidney disese will find useful, even indeispensable.

Eating For Health and Strength

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

(The books I publish are always proof read and corrected before publishing on Kindle! David Snode)

SUCCESS is the goal we all have in view. We want our lives to count for something.
Failure is, to a certain extent, a disgrace. And to live the life of achievement you need
energy, enthusiasm, ambition.

You must have strength, vitality, endurance. And the buoyant spirits that make play of all

If all this is valuable, then the power behind the man or the woman, in the form of food,
assumes great importance. Day by day our bodies are evolved from the food we eat. We are what we are, because of food. We are hardy, vigorous and capable or devitalized and incompetent, depending largely upon the quality of nourishment that we furnish
ourselves day by day.

There never was a time in the history of the world when the human diet was worse than it is at the present day.

We are starving in the midst of plenty.

Devitalized foods of all kinds are depended upon for sustenance.

People are dying, literally, by the millions, because of their pitiful ignorance on the subject of diet.

You can starve to death while you are eating three “square” meals a day, and that is exactly the status of literally millions of people at this time.

This book has been written with the aid of various experts for the purpose of telling the
truth about food. It shows you, in a very defnite manner, what to eat and how to eat, in order to maintain your vitality at high water mark. To insure the keeping quality of the foods prepared for the market, manufacturers often remove the life-building elements.

Devitalized foods of this character are being sold everywhere. You should possess the knowledge necessary to avoid products of this nature. The facts presented in this book wiU be of inestimable value to you for this purpose alone.

Learn how to eat that you may build your body into a masterpiece — mentally, physically
and spiritually. Proper eating will do much to bring about this result. In fact, without an intelligent diet, the most strenuous efforts towards the attainment of life’s great rewards are often wasted.

Learn the truth. Apply it and satisfying rewards will surely come to you.
