Has your doctor diagnosed you with pre-diabetes?  If your answer is yes then this is the book for you.  Pre-diabetes is the state where your blood sugar level is elevated but not enough for you to be diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.  You may not have any symptoms but if you don't want to join the millions of people with Type 2 Diabetes then you need to start managing your health more aggressively. 

In addition to the main sections there are tip lists like "Great Ways To Get More Whole Grains".  This included several different ways of getting more whole grains into your diet that were new and appealing to me.  

The book includes 200 recipes organized into thirteen sections including soups, meat, chicken and reduced carbohydrates and more.  These recipes look delicious and my favorites include sweet potato pancakes, lentil soup with herbs and lemon and healthy onion rings.  These recipes prove that you can eat well while improving your health.

Exercise, of course, is included in this book.  This is not my favorite subject but I was glad to see that the author recommends a sensible approach of adding a daily walk to your routine and including activities you already enjoy like gardening. 

If you're feeling a bit overwhelmed then read the section "Your 10-Week Plan To Kick Pre-Diabetes".  This will help you incorporate small changes weekly to your routine in order to build on your success as you go along.

This is a great book for anyone who has pre-diabetes or who is overweight and worried about their health.  The recipes will work not only for those who have been diagnosed with the condition but for family members as well.
