A groundbreaking guide to defeating diabetes without drugs—including a step-by-step diet plan, recipes, and the science behind why the program works—from #1 New York Times bestseller Dr. Michael Mosley whose life-changing FastDiet series brought on “a health revolution” (New York Times).
Thirteen percent of the US population (thirty million Americans) has diabetes. Eighty-six million Americans have pre-diabetes, meaning their blood sugar levels are dangerously high, and they are teetering on the edge of full-blown diabetes. The CDC estimates that 40% of the current adult population (ninety million Americans) will at some point develop diabetes, a disease that, until recently, was considered irreversible.
In this trailblazing book, Michael Mosley, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the FastDiet series, introduces revolutionary new research that indicates diabetes can be treated—and cured—without drugs and their harmful side effects. By following a simple diet of 800 calories a day for six weeks, patients have seen blood glucose levels decrease by a huge margin.
With the same encouraging, practical demeanor and invaluable physician’s mind of his FastDiet series, Mosley tackles the Type 2 diabetes epidemic with a completely approachable treatment program that can help you reverse the disease—or prevent its onset—in a matter of weeks.
