Although I have not been diagnosed yet...my sugar levels and symptoms point to type 2. As soon as I found that my numbers were elevated I started using The Ulitimate Diabetes Meal Planner. With so much to learn it is a comfort to me that I can choose a menu according to my calorie intake and trust that I am eating the appropriate food. Not only for diabetes safety, but also for good nutrition. I felt better from the first day. I am in hopes that I will be able to control my sugars with diet and exercise. No matter my outcome, I will continue to use this book as a guide for a healthy lifestyle. I love it! The food is varied and delicious. The recipes are easy to make with few ingredients so that cost is kept down. Thank you Jaynie Higgins and David Groetzinger for your compassion and knowledge. You are sincerely appreciated!
