The 5-week program includes a sensible diabetes-friendly diet that teaches you how to incorporate pasta, chocolate, and other "forbidden" foods - along with a MUFA at every meal - into over 150 sumptuous, satisfying dishes. "Flat Belly Diet! Diabetes" also includes a gentle walking-based exercise plan, stress reduction exercises, advice on how to work with one's doctor and diabetes management team, and a journal to help track blood sugar. In just 5 weeks, 11 men and women who tried the plan lost as much as 12 pounds, improved their A1c levels, and lowered their cholesterol and blood pressure levels.
