When you first hear the diagnosis of "prediabetes" for you or a loved one, consider the words from this "against the grain" Type 1 diabetic octogenarian physician before you start a medicinal protocol.

Better Than Before...

New lifestyle? New habits need to be formed patterned for the type of person you are.  Ms. Rubin investigates how habits are formed, how they are kept and, most importantly, why there is no universal methodology to adopt them as she believes the process of keeping habits is relative to personality traits.  Learn about yourself to set up systems for you to suceed.

Why We Get Fat

This is the Gateway Book to understanding that everything we've been taught about diet and nutrition in the last 50 years is wrong.  Key Take-aways:  Dietary fat does not make you fat, eating carbohydrates make you fat and the truth behind the benefits of the Mediterranean diet explained.

The Big Fat Surprise

Ms. Teicholz is an investigative journalist who lost weight reviewing high fat restaurant dishes.  Sounds like a fun job.  Curious about the why of her weight loss, she started a nine-year journey of research that concluded with this book. She was one of the first to question that everything we thought we knew about dietary fat may be wrong.    The Big Fat Surprise is not a diet book. It is a non-fiction work that examines the science, politics, and history of nutrition policy.

The Diabetes Code

Dr. Fung reveals that type 2 diabetes is reversible. He explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. With compelling argument, the only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting―not medication.

The Complete Guide to Fasting

An easy to understand guide to fasting - who it benefits, what it is, when to do it, why it is good, how to do it.   This book clearly explains that not only does the nutritional content of meals matter but also that the timing/frequency of meals may matter more.  At no other time in the history of humans has food and food messaging been so ubiquitous.  This book helps to remind us of how and when to eat for health.

The Obesity Code

Key Take-aways: Dr Fung, offers a research-backed hypothesis to explaining obesity.  The "cure" is reducing overall endogenous insulin production/secretion through manipulation of: 1) Meal timing & frequency such as intermittent fasting; 2) Food quality through whole, not processed, foods 3) Avoidance of insulin spiking-foods such as carbohydrates AND protein
