From the Back Cover
More than a program for living with diabetes, here is a groundbreaking approach to preventing, treating, and even reversing an American epidemic, based on the science of the doctor who invented the low-carb lifestyle and wrote the #1 New York Times bestseller Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution featuring the Atkins Nutritional Approach™— a celebrity-favorite diet perfect for losing weight before your wedding or to bounce back into shape post-baby, or if you just want to look and feel your best.
The statistics are staggering. Thirteen million Americans have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes; another 5.2 million don't know that they have it. During the past thirty years the diabetes rate has tripled, and each year about 200,000 people die from complications of the disease. The Centers for Disease Control project that one out of every three children born in the year 2000 will develop the disease. But Type 2 diabetes is largely preventable. Find out how you can avoid becoming a statistic.
As a respected physician and pioneer in the field of complementary medicine, Dr. Robert C. Atkins recognized early on that diabetes and obesity are twin epidemics, and that the way to reverse both is to permanently change the way people eat. Yet much of the mainstream medical establishment continues to advocate the treatment of diabetes with insulin and other drugs, while recommending a diet high in carbohydrates including sugar, which raises your blood sugar. What you'll learn from reading Atkins Diabetes Revolution is that rather than correcting your metabolism, such a diet can actually increase your risk of developing diabetes—and heart disease.
The Atkins Blood Sugar Control Program (ABSCP) helps you identify the metabolic signposts that indicate trouble long before the onset of Type 2 diabetes so you can stop it in its tracks. If you already have the disease, the ABSCP offers you and your physician a strategy for weight management and blood-sugar control, while minimizing your exposure to drugs.
Atkins Diabetes Revolution presents a comprehensive lifestyle program, including diet, exercise, and nutrient supplementation. The book also contains meal plans, recipes, a fitness routine, and case studies. This revolutionary book, a fitting tribute to Dr. Atkins, tackles one of the greatest health challenges you and your family may ever face.

Low carbohydrate eating has received a bad rap over the years, but I am an enthusiastic convert. Since I received an A1C of 129 and looked in the mirror and saw a grossly obese woman looking back at me, I had been desperately trying to lose weight with no success until I came back to Atkins. I had used it years ago - no health concerns other than obesity - and it worked like a charm.
When I found this book here at Amazon I though - OK - give it a shot. It was well worth the try. In fact, I can honestly say it has changed my life. No more guilt. No more panic. No more "munchie" attacks. Because of this book I have FINALLY taken control of my eating. It's been a Godsend to me.
This book is chock full of valuable information on how to promote this sensible, delicious, healthful way of eating as a weapon again diabetes.
As soon as I established exactly what the rules were and how to go about mapping out my meals for each day it became sinfully easy. I'm never hungry, the pounds are dropping off and I feel better all the time. It's a goldmine of information. My sugar is down, my cholesterol is down, my mind is clear and I'm never disappointed with my meals.
A typical day for me would be a breakfast omelet of two medium or small eggs beaten with 2 Tbs of heavy cream and filled with 1/4 C of shredded Monterrey jack and cheddar with freshly ground pepper, with a (fresh) sausage patty, and a cup of piping hot black vanilla tea. For lunch I might have a grilled chicken breast (or a generous portion of stewed beef with broth, or medallions of braised pork loin or ...) and a half cup of chunks of cucumber with skin on and a half cup of red bell pepper cut in large chunks with 2 Tbs of ranch (regular) dressing. For dinner I'd have a cup of steaming chicken broth dressed with a Tbs of grated Parmesan to start, 2 center cut pork chops seasoned with garlic and fresh black pepper, and 2 cups of assorted salad greens (including a few grape or cherry tomatoes) dressed with flavored vinegar (no balsamic)and olive oil, or a cup of chunks of celery and peppers with dressing and a cup of steamed broccoli with a pat (or two) of butter. For dessert sugar free gelatin (I make my own - those little cup packs are convenient, but TOO expensive) with whipped heavy cream sweetened with Splenda. For a snack during the day, a 1 ounce stick of smoked string cheese.
I swear to you, I no longer experience that hollow, gnawing sense of hunger that drives you to the refrigerator or the cupboard looking for something to fill the hole. I know this sounds too good to be true, but sometimes I have to remember to eat. What a concept, huh?
I'm avoiding caffeine. That was the nugget from this book that truly tipped the scales for me. The book's explanation made me realize that I needed to make that change. There were headachey days while I was weaning myself off the caffeine load my body was used to, but after I dropped down to 1 large cup of half/caff Hazelnut coffee at my desk in the morning the weight loss revved up considerably. I've turned to black cherry, strawberry, peach, apricot or green grape flavored sugar free seltzer water instead of colas, or just plain water for most of the rest of the day. I now choose flavored decaffeinated teas and the flavor difference from caffeinated is minuscule.
I'm doing a combination of carb and calorie counting, and it works like a charm. This one I learned early on - there's a good reason why the book tells you not to use processed meats - like bacon, many types of sausage, deli or luncheon meats, even wieners. They all contain SUGAR! After using the daily nutrition counter on Sparkpeople it came through to me with a bang that bacon is just not in the cards in large quantities. It is incredibly calorie dense. Better to have fresh salsiccia sausage than honey cured bacon. The calorie difference is stunning!
I'm in perpetual Induction - keeping my carbs below 20 per day and my calories below 1800, and I'm losing weight every day. I'm not perfect, so I do go over now and then, but it's easy to get back on the program. One thing that is essential to this program is - you MUST eat. Don't skip meals. Follow the program and you'll be full and thinner before you know it.
Remember this - don't eat white food - white bread, white rice, ice cream - perhaps the only truly white food that is allowed is cauliflower which makes a GREAT substitute for mashed potatoes or grated coarsely for rice. I've used it as a substitute for rice in stuffed pepper recipes and it worked beautifully. Eat fruit sparingly, but eat it! Once in OWL (ongoing weight loss) be sure to eat only those with the lowest GI (glycemic index). No fear - there are plenty that fit.
Most diets are about deprivation. This is perhaps the most significant thing about Atkins - you'll never feel deprived. You literally pamper yourself with delicious foods, and still you lose weight.
The book is for real people. It educates you. It includes recipes, meal plans, discussion on the finest details of what causes diabetes and what is necessary to stop it. It outlines what sugar substitutes to use - which are the most healthful oils - how to break through a plateau - how caffeine affects your blood sugar.
This is the quintessential sourcebook. I carry it in my car so I can refer to it when I need to - whether at home, at work, or out in the world just living my life. Teamed up with The Essential Atkins for Life Kit, this book is a real winner.
For anyone out there who is diabetic, pre-diabetic, or just plain overweight, this book is sensible, readable, easy to navigate and beautifully effective.
Check with your doctor before committing, but once committed, give it a good solid try. I believe you will find it can work for you. It sure worked for me!
It is not just for people with diabetes.
If you are having trouble controlling your weight, or having problems with cholesterol or triglycerides, read this book. Mary C Vernon, M D is very knowledgeable and does a great job of: teaching you how to eat, convincing you why this method makes sense , and how it will make you healthier. She is a long time supporter of Dr Atkins and his medical philosophies. She uses Atkins methods in her own medical practice. She adds some important points to Atkins teachings -- like the importance of including fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet.
Having promised to myself never to take those harsh medicines that in the long run will destroy you internal organs, used this book instead. Today, after four months, the blood pressure is back to normal levels as well as the blood glucose. And don't miss the carbs either.
Read this book ... basic and straightforward. I'd read about the author and her practice in Men's Health. I followed her advice step by step. It's a lifestyle change. I ate different and cooked different. I started walking every day. More and more. I lost weight and changed my blood chemistry. Shocked my doctor. Cholesterol and thyroid and blood pressure all moved to normal.
Is it hard to give up some food? Yes.
Does it take dedication to stick with this? Yes.
This book is a map to health.
It'll only take you there if you follow it.
