The book I use the most is titled NUTRITION in HEALTH and DISEASE PUBLISHED BY J.P.Lippincott Co. Philadelphia,Pa.
This covers the nutritional side as well as explains how to plann a meal and what to look for in the changes in your body. Diabetes control is not just in BG numbers. It is about a way of life that you live or don't. Your choice. What works the most for me is low carb-high protein diet. I have lost 147 pounds since I was diagnosed with type ll in August 2009. Anytime you need answers, always ask. Someone here will let you know what to do. God Bless and good luck in your endeavor. tommy

I live in Scotland UK and the book I have is published by HAMLIN in the UK, but was originally published by STERLING PUBLISHING CO.INC. in the US in 2006. You may be able to get an updated version of this book. "GI BASICS by Helen Foster.The low glycemic way to lose weight and gain energy. It gives the GI rating for over 300 everyday foods and includes recipes. lol ☺☺☺
