Being overweight dramatically increases the risk of diabetes. Research shows that only a permanent lifestyle change can take weight off and keep it off--and thus prevent diabetes in those who might otherwise suffer from this debilitating and dreaded disease.
Living with Diabetes: Dr. Draznin's Plan for Better Health offers a practical and scientifically proven approach to lifestyle change that will stay with you long term: a simple way to lose weight and keep it off, and to prevent or manage diabetes. Filled with anecdotes and down-to-earth advice, Living with Diabetes offers a dramatically different method of weight loss and management based on the refreshingly simple concepts of the Draznin Mile and the Draznin Calorie, two unique strategies that can help you lose weight quickly and safely. For this fully revised and updated edition, Dr. Draznin has incorporated mnay recent research findings in nutrition and weight management advances in our understanding of weight regulation, energy expenditure, and how Americans can learn to change the way they eat. An evaluation of "fad diets" has been added, while statistics on obesity and health have been fully updated. Dr. Draznin also weighs the risks and benefits of surgical approaches such
as gastric bypass, and discusses the newest methods of treating diabetes and "pre-diabetes."

Drawing on his successful treatment of thousands of overwight and diabetic patients over 30 years of medical practice, Dr. Boris Draznin offers a practical and easy-to-follow plan that will appeal to those who have or or are at risk for diabetes, as well as anyone interested in losing weight in a healthy and sustainable manner.
