I'm a newly diagnosed type II diabetic. I found with testing after my usual higher carb meals, that my glucoses would shoot up into the 200s. This book along with Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution helped me to normalize my blood sugars. What I realized through Dr. Bernstein's works is that what I thought of as a "low carb fad" is actually a lifesaver and should be a way of life for diabetics. As for the recipes, I've tried the peanut chicken stir fry, chicken in champagne mushroom sauce, steak stuffed with spinach, peppers, and pine nuts, and, from the desserts section, ginger cinnamon custard. These were all very yummy. The chicken in champagne mushroom sauce is especially flavorful, tastes like you're eating at a 5 star restaurant. So far, the only recipe that didn't work out well was the peanut butter cookies but that may have been because of the peanut butter I used. All in all, though, a great book. This book along with the Diabetes Solution turned my life around.
