16 Myths of a Diabetic Diet -- Second Edition

Second Edition!

Can people with diabetes eat foods containing sugar? Can they eat the same foods as other members of their family? These questions and many others about nutrition and meal planning are answered in 16 Myths of a Diabetic Diet.

The book, written by Amy Campbell, MS, RD, LDN, CDE, and Karen Chalmers, MS, RD, LDN, CDE, explores the 16 most common misconceptions about a diabetic diet.  The authors explain that, contrary to popular opinion, there really is no such thing as a "diabetic diet." People with diabetes can lead healthy lives while at the same time enjoying many of their favorite foods in moderation and as a part of an overall meal and physical activity plan.

What's new in the Second Edition?

  • Up-to-date diabetes information
  • The latest details on nutrients and nutrition
  • New tips on turning home-cooked meals into healthy meals
  • A new meal planning tool:  the gylcemic index
