As someone who has a disease that mimics pre-diabetes in a lot of ways, this is a book I was highly interested in reading for personal reasons.
And I am really glad I did. The book was not just a 'how-to' on diets. It was an in-depth look at what pre-diabetes is, what detox is, and a breakdown of the diet, supplements, lifestyle changes, and detoxing your home.
Many of these changes are holistic and require a shift in lifestyle. However, the information is well documented and cited, and the diet is very similar to other no sugar diets I've read about.
In addition to this invaluable information, there are also some yummy recipes included. I do think I will adopt some of these things into my life. It isn't a big shift from South Beach, but does have a lot of other useful information on a holistic approach.
