The most recent data from the National Diabetes Fact Sheet (2011) indicates there are an estimated 25.8 million children and adults in the United States who have some form of diabetes and 79 million American have pre-diabetes. The estimated numbers are growing annually; in large part because diabetes or pre-diabetes is linked to America’s other serious health problem: obesity.
Roughly two out of every three American adults are within a weight range that can be classified as overweight or obese. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that 35.7 percent of adults in the United States were obese in 2009. Given the current trend it is expected that the number of people who will develop diabetes or pre-diabetes is going to continue to grow.
My goal with this e-book is to give you some straightforward information to help answer some of your questions. Here are three key points I hope you take-away from reading this e-book:
*You do not have to change everything about the way you eat or live: eating and lifestyle changes are best made in small steps.. one at a time.
*You have many more options of foods you can eat, even though you may have heard otherwise.
*Learning more about your diabetes or pre-diabetes, one step at a time will enable you to start taking charge of your own health and bring about a positive outcome.

Vegan Diet Shock – How I Developed Osteoporosis, Pre-Diabetes and Anemia On A Vegan Diet
– Do you think that you’re eating a healthy vegan diet? I thought so too.
– Do you think there’s no need to get your blood tested? That’s also what I thought.
– Have you got any minor health issues that you haven’t had checked out? If so, get your blood tested.
– Do you want to stay healthy? Then read this book.
If you’re eating a vegan diet, or planning to start one, then you really need to read this book. It could save you from osteoporosis, diabetes, anemia, low vitamin B12, low vitamin D, low zinc, and much, much more.
Why Should You Listen To Me?
Because I was a vegan for around 30 years, and I still ended up with osteoporosis, pre-diabetes and anemia. How many other vegans out there have undiagnosed conditions that could be unnknowingly destroying their health?
How Many Vegans Share Their Blood Test Results?
Not many. Either they are assuming they are healthy, or they don’t want you to know the results. This book contains all my hospital results, including blood tests, urine tests, bone density tests, heart assessement tests, untrasound tests, prostate tests and fitness assessment tests. You get to see what I was like after 30 years on a vegan diet. I was SHOCKED!
Find Out How I Tried To Resolve My Health Issues
I explain what I did and what I am still doing in order to try to resolve these health issues.
What If You’re Not Vegan?
Because I was vegan for 30 years, my aim is to alert and educate other vegans, but this book would be equally useful to both vegetarians and meat-eaters. I have seen plenty of people from these groups with similar medical conditions.
Don’t Just Assume You’re OK.
I made the mistake of assuming I was ok. Please don’t make the same mistake as me.
About The Author
I was a vegan for 30 years, and have many vegan friends. Many have health issues, some quite serious. I want to alert other vegans to some issues that don’t get talked about much in the vegan community. A vegan diet can be great, but let’s also start mentioning the not so great things. Read this book – your health depends on it.

Just over eleven years ago, author Alan D. Raguso was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. He spent ten years battling raging A1Cs and ever-worsening blood-glucose readings; two and a half years ago, he started developing the beginning stages of retinal problems. That’s when Raguso decided to get serious about his health and resolved to find a way to beat diabetes. In The Diabetes Slayer’s Handbook, he narrates his journey with the disease and presents a nonsurgical, nonprescription-drug intervention program that he discovered through his research and study of nutrition. He provides an understanding of the basics of prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, excess weight, sugar and carbohydrates, and metabolism, and he outlines diabetes-reversal techniques using everyday healthy foods combined with easy low-impact exercise. The Diabetes Slayer’s Handbook dissects the components of diabetes and offers a game plan for attacking the disease to help diabetes sufferers get a handle on their health and their life.
A pre-diabetes diagnosis is a wake-up call and a call to action! The news that you have pre-diabetes should be taken seriously, yet many people who learn they have pre-diabetes take no action, and realize the negative consequences later.

The more you understand about pre-diabetes, the better you can take action to reverse it or minimize your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
The information covered includes general information about pre-diabetes, such as symptoms and risk factors. You will learn how pre-diabetes is diagnosed, tips on managing pre-diabetes, how to start a weight loss plan, what to do about exercise, what you can eat, organizing your kitchen and pantry, how to manage dining out and much, much more. At the end of the e-book I will walk you through creating a weekly action plan to put everything in place. Along the way you’ll receive helpful tips and links to resources.

A pre-diabetes diagnosis is a wake-up call. And with this book, you can make the lifestyle changes you need to ensure your good health. The book guides you not only through what to eat and when, but how to prepare delicious, healthy meals such as:
- Honey–Oat Bran Bread
- Layered Veggie Casserole
- Cold Roasted Red Pepper Soup
- Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
- Strawberry-Banana Sorbet
Reversing a diagnosis can be daunting, but with this guide, you learn to take the process one step–and one meal–at a time.
Dr. Steve Parker (M.D.) has created the world’s first low-carbohydrate Mediterranean diet, designed for people with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes. His science-based plan blends the healthy components of the traditional Mediterranean diet with the ease and effectiveness of low-carb eating.
Conquer Diabetes and Prediabetes teaches how to lower blood sugars naturally, reduce or eliminate diabetic medications, and lose excess weight if needed.
Type 2 diabetics and prediabetics have lost the ability to process carbohydrates safely. Carbohydrates have become poisonous for them. Carb toxicity too often leads to numb and painful limbs, impaired vision, kidney failure, amputations, cancer, and premature heart attacks, strokes, and death. What’s the first thing you do when you find you’re being poisoned? You stop taking the poison!
Nutrition experts worldwide agree that the Mediterranean diet is the healthiest way of eating for the general public. It prolongs life and reduces rates of heart attack, stroke, cancer, and dementia. The only problem for diabetics is that it provides too many toxic carbohydrates.
Dr. Parker initially recommends a very-low-carb ketogenic diet for 12 to 18 weeks, then teaches the reader how to gradually add more healthy carbohydrates depending on blood sugar and body weight changes.
The book provides recipes, a week of menus, instruction on exercise, discussion of all available diabetic medications, advice on how to avoid weight gain, lists of delicious doctor-approved foods, 71 scientific references, an annotated bibliography, and an index. All measurements are given both in U.S. customary and metric units.
