National Diabetes Month Book Suggestions From Black Expressions(R) Book Club
Date:11/6/2008

NEW YORK, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the American Diabetes Association, 23.6 million Americans suffer from diabetes. The African American community is one of the groups hardest hit by this disease, with over 3.7 million diagnosed. With November being National Diabetes Month, Black Expressions(R) Book Club has put together a few books that raise awareness about diabetes and offer information about prevention, nutrition and diet tips.

DR. NEAL BERNARD'S PROGRAM FOR REVERSING DIABETES (Dr. Neal Bernard, Rodale Press) offers a holistic approach to treating diabetes. Bernard provides an overview of diabetes and an approach that treats it without prescriptions. Bernard explores why some foods lead to steady weight loss by lowering blood sugar and cholesterol. He also includes a 7-day meal plan with recipes, tips to tracking your progress and advice on exercise, supplements, and vitamins.

Most people know to get a second opinion, but what happens when both your first and second opinions leave vital information out? WHAT YOUR DOCTOR MAY NOT TELL YOU ABOUT DIABETES (Dr. Steven V. Joyal, Hachette Book Group USA) investigates the genes and changes to cells in the body that cause diabetes. Joyal looks at ways to reverse pre-diabetes and recommends prescription drugs that could change the course of diabetes. He also includes key self-tests, exercise and nutrition guidelines and suggests "superfoods" for building your immune system. This book is packed with information for both the newly diagnosed and current sufferers of diabetes.

Sometimes the tipping point of a person's recovery rests with their diet. However, no one wants the limitations of their diet to make the rest of the family unhappy. THE NEW FAMILY COOKBOOK FOR PEOPLE WITH DIABETES (Simon & Schuster, Inc) is the newly revised and updated cookbook from the American Dietetic Association and the American Diabetic Association. Boasting over 370 recipes, this classic cookbook aims to please everyone at mealtime. New lower-fat ingredients and unsaturated fats are used wherever they can be substituted, and each recipe provides the most current diabetes exchange information.

Carol Mackey, editor of Black Expressions(R) Book Club, comments, "I make it a point to offer books that help Black Expressions(R) members manage the disease and live healthier lives." All of these titles and more are available at Black Expressions(R) Book Club (http://www.blackexpressions.com). Individuals who wish to join now can get 5 books for $2 with membership.
