Have you or a loved one been diagnosed as diabetic or prediabetic?

Healthy weight loss has long been the line of attack against the disease of type 2 diabetes. It is the first line of defense in preventing it, and it is the cure for people who already have it. Lose weight, and the symptoms disappear; maintain the weight loss, and the symptoms will not reappear. Regain weight, however, and the disease comes back.

There are particular nutrients that actually fight the disease over the long term. Their names aren’t a secret—fiber, phytonutrients, soy protein, and the so-called good fats: monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, and omega-3 fatty acids. The foods that contain these diabetes-fighting ingredients should be part of every diabetic’s eating plan, and Dr. Shapiro will show you how.

For more information about how to lose weight healthfully, refer to Dr. Shapiro's book Eat & Beat Diabetes with Picture Perfect Weight Loss, or call our office (212-935-5333).
