Like "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"
