Joslin's new book demystifies nutrition and meal planning for people with diabetes

Boston -- Conflicting headlines in the news media about what foods are healthy to eat can be confusing, especially when you or a loved one has diabetes. Besides understanding the impact of each food on one's blood glucose level, sorting through questions about fat, fiber, carbohydrates (carbs), sweeteners, the glycemic index and more can be daunting.

Staying Healthy with Diabetes Nutrition & Meal Planning, a new book from Joslin Diabetes Center, provides a "road map" to help guide people with diabetes and their families and friends down the road of healthy food choices. Written by Amy P. Campbell, M.S., R.D., C.D.E., a dietitian at Joslin Diabetes Center, and the staff of Joslin, the book provides a guide through the many food choices.

The book is filled with simple, easy-to-read charts that detail key issues about nutrition and diabetes. It explains which foods one may need to eat more of -- or which foods might be avoided if they are negatively affecting body weight, blood cholesterol or blood glucose levels. The book also covers such important topics as carbohydrate counting, the glycemic index, eating out, drinking alcohol, taking vitamin/mineral supplements, handling holiday gatherings, eating when sick, food shopping and label reading.

"No foods are forbidden for people with diabetes," says Campbell. "You can have a piece of cake on your birthday or go out to dinner," she says. "You just need to know how to count carbohydrates and sometimes limit certain foods to stay in the best of health." Nutrition & Meal Planning shows how.

Nutrition & Meal Planning also features Joslin's Food Lists 32 pages that provide serving sizes (each containing 15 grams of carbohydrate) for carbohydrates (breads, cereals, vegetables, cookies, crackers, fruit, favorite breakfast items and desserts); proteins (meats, cheeses, eggs); fats; "free" foods' combination foods; fast foods; and vegetarian foods. The new book is available for $1
