It’s with an abundance of pride that, on World Diabetes Day, I’m finally able to announce that my latest book – The 30 Minute Type 2 Diabetes Cookbook – is officially available for pre-order ahead of its December 21st on sale date.
My first job after graduation was within the research & education department of Diabetes Canada where, among other duties, I played a minor role in assembling the organizations Clinical Practice Guidelines – an exceptional evidence-based resource which, fast forward nearly a decade, played a significant role in informing the messaging in my latest book which is primarily targeted towards individuals with newly diagnosed pre or type 2 diabetes who are looking to making dietary changes to improve their blood glucose management.
A very important consideration indeed when we consider that the World Health Organization has suggested that high blood glucose levels are among the top three risk factors for premature death globally.
Here in Canada about 10% of the population is living with a diabetes diagnosis, a number expected to increase by several % points in the years to come while closer to a quarter of the population is living with prediabetes.
In my subjective professional experience a diagnosis of impaired blood glucose levels tends to rile more concern in the general public than other common issues such as high blood pressure or high blood cholesterol.
This reality makes me that much more proud to be able to offer a resource like my The 30 Minute Type 2 Diabetes Cookbook to those who are looking for clarity, direction and understanding when it comes to the basics of understanding both diabetes and the most important principles of its dietary management.
My book is structured similarly to my others and divided principally into two sections:
Section 1 – A Discussion Of The Science
In the first section of the book I will introduce the reader to the fundamental nutritional principles of diabetes management including a discussion of the role of supplementation and covering all of the basic introductory points of how diabetes affects the body.
Section 2 – Tons Of Recipes
All the scientific evidence in the world lacks value without a way to properly apply it, which is why the second section of the book is wholly devoted to providing the reader with 75 recipes that bring all of the information and principles from the first section to life.
But that’s not all.
Over the next 5-weeks, ahead of the books December 21st on sale-date, you can expect the following:
- Sample/preview recipes from the book
- Blog posts covering various nutrition topics in the world of diabetes management
- Giveaways and other fun opportunities
If this sounds as good to you as it does to me, you will want to stay honed-in on my blog, social media and newsletter over the next few weeks.
One final request before we part, if you are intending to grab a copy of the book I’d love if you considered pre-ordering as good pre-order numbers will do wonders for the books short and long-term success.
Until next time,
