People With Diabetes Can Eat Anything
it's all about balance
Jane K. Dickinson
For far too long people with diabetes have been told what they can eat and what they should do. It's time for a different approach to managing diabetes; one that balances having a positive attitude, owning the disease, and making choices. Written for people with diabetes and those who care about them, People With Diabetes Can Eat Anything provides readers with the tools to feel empowered, confident and prepared to go out into the world and make healthy choices. Dickinson recounts her journey from diagnosis to successful diabetes management and everything in between. She shares her own frustrations with food (and other diabetes situations) and what she has learned from them and from the people with whom she works. Through humor and a conversational approach the author anticipates questions, provides answers and puts readers at ease.
