Dr. David Nathan was one of the lead researchers of the landmark Diabetes Control and Complications Trial sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. It scientifically proved that the right program of nutrition and exercise can prevent diabetes in people on the brink of the disease. The same lessons can have a major effect in those who already have diabetes.

Approximately 800,000 new cases of diabetes are diagnosed each year in the United States, and that number continues to rise sharply. The results of the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial received enormous media attention because this approach to lifestyle change offers real hope to the vast and growing number of people with prediabetes (40 million in the United States alone) and those with type 2 diabetes (16 million).

Now, in Beating Diabetes , Dr. Nathan teams up with fellow Harvard Medical School expert Linda Delahanty to arm people at high risk for developing diabetes and those with type 2 diabetes with the first complete, clinically proven program of its kind. Readers get:

  • Step-by-step, proven techniques to help them make real and lasting lifestyle changes by eating better and exercising regularly without becoming a health nut or spending hours in the gym
  • Tasty, easy-to-prepare recipes and daily meal plans from the chief dietitian at the Massachusetts General Hospital Diabetes Center
  • Guidelines for developing diabetes-busting exercise routines appropriate to all ages and fitness levels
  • Help in identifying unhealthy, diabetes-promoting behaviors along with expert guidance on making crucial lifestyle changes and sticking with them
