Dr. Parker has created the first-ever 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: The Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet 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. 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. Due to the toxic nature of carbohydrates in people with impaired blood sugar metabolism, most diabetics won’t be able to tolerate more than 80–100 grams of carbohydrate daily. (The average Western diet provides 250 grams.) The book provides recipes, a week of menus, instruction on exercise, discussion of all available diabetic medications, lists of delicious doctor-approved foods, 71 scientific references, and an index. All measurements are given both in U.S. customary and metric units.
Dr. Steve Parker presents the world's first low-carbohydrate Mediterranean diet. Nutrition experts for years have recommended the healthy Mediterranean diet. It's linked to longer lifespan and reduced rates of heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and dementia. Dr. Parker (M.D.) has modified the Mediterranean diet to help you lose excess weight while retaining most of the healthy foods in the traditional Mediterranean diet. What's the secret? Cut back on the fattening carbohydrates such as concentrated sugars and refined starches. You'll discover how to manage your weight without exercise, without hunger, without restricting calories, while eating fish, meat, chicken, vegetables, fruits, wine, olive oil, nuts, and cheese. The book includes advice on how to avoid weight regain, instruction on exercise, a week of meal plans, special recipes, a general index, a recipe index, and scientific references. All measurements are given in both U.S. customary and metric units. This low-carbohydrate Mediterranean diet is included also in Dr. Parker's Advanced Mediterranean Diet (2nd edition) and Conquer Diabetes and Prediabetes. Are you finally ready to lose weight while eating abundantly and without counting calories?
Dr. Parker teaches you how to control your blood sugar and eliminate or reduce diabetes drugs by working with Nature, not against her. You'll even lose excess weight if needed.
This is the first-ever Paleolithic-style diet created specifically for people with diabetes and prediabetes. Also known as the caveman, Stone Age, paleo, or ancestral diet, the Paleolithic diet provides the foods our bodies were originally designed to thrive on. You'll not find the foods that cause modern diseases of civilization, such as concentrated refined sugars and grains, industrial seed oils, and over-processed Franken-foods. Our ancestors just five generations ago wouldn't recognize many of the everyday foods that are harming us now.
On the Paleolithic diet, you'll enjoy a great variety of food, including nuts and seeds, vegetables, fruit, meat, seafood, and eggs. Dr. Parker and his co-author wife provide one week of meal plans to get you started, plus additional special recipes. Meals are quick and easy to prepare with common ingredients. You'll find detailed nutritional analysis of each meal, including carbohydrate grams.
All measurements in the book are given in both U.S. customary and metric units. Blood glucose values are provided as both mmol/l and mg/dl.
Also included is information and advice on exercise, weight loss, all 12 classes of diabetes drugs, management of hypoglycemia, and recommended drug dose adjustments.
