After receiving a diagnosis of prediabetes or diabetes, it may seem that the days of “eating what you love” are over. Understanding dietary changes, blood glucose monitoring, and prevention of complications can feel scary and overwhelming. But even people with diabetes can eat what they love, using awareness and intention to guide them.
Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat with Diabetes helps readers discover how eating and physical activity affect their blood sugar so that they can make decisions that support their good health without sacrificing delicious meals or dinner out with friends.
This book builds on the principles in Michelle May’s Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat to help readers with prediabetes or diabetes reduce their anxiety about diabetes self-management. This four-part system helps readers think, nourish, care, and live with diabetes — without restriction or guilt — to discover optimal health and the vibrant life they crave.
Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat with Diabetes, is a non-restrictive, mindful approach to living vibrantly with diabetes or prediabetes. The book uses the structure of the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Cycle, a unique awareness and decision-making tool that makes it simple to learn mindful eating skills. It is a great resource for health professionals, individuals, and groups wishing to apply mindful eating concepts to diabetes self-management. This book is also a wonderful complement to Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Programs for participants with diabetes, pre-diabetes, or metabolic syndrome.
