Not another cookbook I hear you say! To be fair my choices of book review have not exactly been the cookbook type lately so is this a reversal of trend??
I must choose this one this month for a few reasons. A copy of this book sits behind the till counter at The Urban Co-op lately and I have had cause to show to many customers who have told me about their diagnosis of diabetes. When I show the cover of the book it is notable how surprised they are to learn that Diabetes can be reversed. REVERSED you say! NO! My doctor told me….
Diabetes is so common now it is shockingly normal. So normal I note the acceptance that the community settles with to be told that this is their lot. Time to shake things up a bit.
I don’t claim to understand the details of how this is possible, but I have for many years now followed with interest the enlightened few who have delved very deep into changing the status quo and one of these truly marvellous people is Dr David Unwin who features in the introduction in this book. His ability to bring forward an understanding for his patients on how they can make decisions about their own health has been remarkably successful and is gaining ground. His calm and measured approach supports his patients to reverse the diabetic trend he has seen in his clinic in the UK.
(In essence and summary cut back the carbohydrates and up the fats..) Sound familiar?!!
This cookbook gives a great insight into how to take control of your health in a really positive manner and quite frankly I have great respect for the work Katie and Giancarlo have done to help bring this knowledge to us in an easy-to-understand manner.
There are plenty of cookbooks out there on this theme but for sure this one is a terrific place to start on your journey of hope.
