By following Dr. Barnard’s life-changing approach, viewers will be able to control blood sugar three times more effectively than with the standard dietary regimen for people with diabetes. Dr. Barnard’s program is a three-rule system to Tackling diabetes by first, a vegan diet; eliminating all animal products (meat, poultry, fish and dairy) from one’s diet, second, a diet low in fat and third, by eating foods with a low glycemic index. These three steps equate to eating regular meals in the four food groups: vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes.

In Tackling Diabetes, Dr. Barnard presents the effects on our diet from fat, fiber and calories. Did you know adding 14 grams of fiber to your diet can cut your daily calorie intake by 10%? Or that 9 calories equate to one fat gram? And that the percentage of fat in beef versus chicken only differs by 6%? In the special, Dr. Barnard teaches basic dietary guidelines to identifying fiber-rich foods, foods low in fat and foods with a low glycemic index, with no limits or calorie counting.

BOOK - Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes
Description: If you have diabetes or are concerned about developing diabetes, this book could change the course of your life. Although diabetes is a serious illness that all too often leads to heart problems, nerve damage, blindness, stroke, or kidney failure, it doesn’t have to be that way.

A new book by nutrition researcher, Neal Barnard, M.D., outlines a completely new dietary approach to preventing, controlling, and even reversing diabetes. The program is based on a series of research studies that Dr. Barnard and his colleagues have conducted over the years -- the latest funded by the National Institutes of Health. Published in the August 2006 issue of Diabetes Care, the study found Dr. Barnard’s program to be three times more effective than the American Diabetes Association dietary guidelines at controlling blood sugar.

The studies also show that by adopting a low-fat, low glycemic index, vegan diet -- free of all animal products and added vegetable oils -- individuals can lower their cholesterol, reduce their blood pressure, and lose weight. Best of all, the diet doesn’t demand that one count calories, cut portion sizes, or give up all carbohydrates. On the contrary, you can eat as much as you want.

The book explains how the diet actually alters what goes on in an individual’s cells. Rather than just compensate for malfunctioning insulin, like other treatment plans, Dr. Barnard’s program helps repair how the body uses insulin. It also includes helpful tips on adopting a plant-based diet and more than 50 delicious and easy-to-make recipes. Softcover, 272 pages

BOOK - Foods That Fight Pain
Description: Did you know that ginger can prevent migraines and that coffee sometimes cures them? Did you know that rice can calm your digestion, that sugar can make you more sensitive to pain and that evening primrose can ease the symptoms of arthritis?

In this groundbreaking book Dr. Barnard provides a complete program for using foods scientifically proven to relieve pain. Foods have special effects on pain, and research studies substantiate this. You can use foods to fight pain in these ways:

Choose pain-safe foods. Reduce inflammation by avoiding foods that may be causing or aggravating your pain.
Add soothing foods that ease pain. Different foods may improve blood flow, relieve inflammation, or balance hormones.
Use supplements if needed. Herbs, extracts, and vitamins can relieve pain.

Dr. Barnard explores a variety of medical conditions, such as migraines, arthritis, digestive problems, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetes, herpes, sickle-cell anemia, kidney stones, urinary infections, and back, chest, breast, menstrual, and cancer pain. For each condition, Barnard explains the causes of the pain and what dietary changes are likely to alleviate it, along with exercise and lifestyle recommendations. Barnard backs up his points with 30 pages of research citations. Softcover, 348 pages
