Most health experts agree that the we are facing a huge increase in the number of people with diabetes. Most cases are Type 2 (non-insulin dependent) diabetes and happily this form of diabetes is controlled by diet and exercise. So understanding nutrition and diet is essential to maintaining your health as a non-insulin dependent diabetes sufferer. However because of our ageing population and rapidly rising numbers of overweight and obese people many diabetics today are either living alone or are a couple. So preparing meals using regular diabetic cookbooks which cater for four or more people can provide meals that are too big and wasteful. "Diabetic Cooking for One and Two" solves the problem by offering a collection of easy, tempting recipes in smaller portions. Based on the very latest research it gives nutritional guidelines, a menu planner, advice on how to shop and plan your meals, over 100 recipes all with nutritional analyses catering for contemporary culinary tastes, consisting of meals with a high intake of vegetables, pulses, fruit and whole grains.
