Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution
A Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Blood Sugars
|by Richard K. Bernstein MD, Richard K. Bernstein, Timothy J. Aubert, Frank Vinicor
Bernstein has had type I (juvenile or insulin-dependent) diabetes for 50 years and has become well known for his unconventional approach to treating both types of the disease. His emphases on almost hour-by-hour normalization of blood sugar and a diet consisting of nearly no carbohydrates and high levels of fat and protein have certainly educed two results: they have alienated many other diabetes specialists and required Bernstein's patients to be meticulous in self-managing their disease. Bernstein begins with some successful case histories, proceeds to basic backgrounding on diabetes, and then describes his treatment plan in considerable detail. He discusses diet, types of insulin and their uses, and the importance of establishing a close relationship with one's physician. He encourages his patients to make frequent visits to his office, makes himself available by phone virtually round the clock, and here includes five appendixes of data and exposition to help patients align their physicians' thinking with his.
| The Schwarzbein Principle : The Truth About Losing Weight, Being Healthy, and Feeling Younger
|by Diana Schwarzbein (Introduction), Nancy Deville
From her work with insulin-resistant patients with Type II diabetes, Dr. Schwarzbein concludes that low-fat diets cause heart attacks, eating fat makes you lose body fat, and it's important to eat high-cholesterol foods every day. Picture cardiologists and dieticians tearing their hair out and overweight people cheering as they dive into Eggs Benedict with sausage.
According to Schwarzbein, the high-carbohydrate, low-fat, moderate-protein diet that most dieticians and disease-prevention organizations recommend is the culprit that turns people into diabetics, makes them age faster and get degenerative diseases, and keeps them fat and unhealthy. She supports her theory with case studies of people who were sick and miserable on high-carbo, low-fat diets and who sprang to life when they "balanced" their diets with more fat and protein.
