The huge and growing problem of type 2 diabetes already affects 10-20% of the population. Millions more are in the early stage of the disease (a condition called prediabetes) or are at high risk of developing it within five years. Though there is a lot of information and advice about living with diabetes, there is very little information about how to minimize the risk of health complications or, more importantly, how to get rid of it for good. That's where Beating Type 2 Diabetes comes in! This book is a single, reliable, evidence-based, high-quality resource that includes everything there is to know about beating type 2 diabetes. After reading what type 2 diabetes is, how the condition is diagnosed, how it is treated, and how the condition is monitored and managed, you will gain a better understanding of the causes of type 2 diabetes, what the risk factors are, and why it is linked so strongly to being overweight or obese. Understanding type 2 diabetes means you are now equipped to reverse the diagnosis. To help you beat type 2 diabetes, Professor Michael Gleeson provides a safe and effective weight-loss plan. This plan uses sensible, varied, non-extreme dieting combined with enjoyable and exhilarating (but not exhausting!) exercise that should kick diabetes into remission and improve overall health. The great thing about the diet part of the plan is that it does not require sticking with the same boring diet week after week. Instead, you can use a variety of different, but equally effective, diets which can be changed each week. With this book, you can reverse your diagnosis and beat type 2 diabetes for good!
