The Diabetic Wine Lovers Guide, a pairing that works

The Diabetic Wine Lovers Guide… Do you think it can happen?

I know it can, because I have someone who, once he was “pre-diagnosed,” took his life into his own hands, and still drinks wine today, but lost the “pre-diagnosed.”

How?

  • Change of eating habits.
  • Paleo diet, which precludes starches.
  • Joined a gym.
  • Is now in the greatest shape of his life.
  • Just shy of his 20 year old pounds.
  • NEVER stopped enjoying wine.

I was asked if I’d accept a copy of The Diabetic Wine Lover’s Guide. Heck, yeah. I’m all about health, organic foods, and delicious wines (in moderation with the wines).

This is one of the best books ever written for a diabetic, because today’s modern world knows more than ever about wine. Author Theodore Berland has created a very important body of work. Inspired by Harvey Posert… if you’re in the wine business and you don’t know who Harvey is, look him up for his great accomplishments… Theodore Berland has many degrees (B.S., A.M., FAMWA) and is an award-winning medical writer. He’s authored more than 20 books and has written for magazines, newspapers, and medical journals. (Side note: He’s also has written three plays.) This is a serious writer, and so this book cannot be taken lightly, by anyone not willing to listen.

Throughout The Diabetic Wine Lover’s Guide, he reminds his readers to work closely with their medical professional(s), and even suggests that if one’s doctor isn’t up on the latest research, this book provides a clearing house for those not yet up-to-date on the latest findings. Nothing is more concise and in one place, for learning what’s happening today with the latest studies and findings.

Read this book if:

  • Diabetes is in your family.
  • You’ve been pre-diagnosed.
  • You know someone pre-diagnosed.
  • You have diabetes.
  • You love someone with diabetes.
  • Your doctor isn’t yet enlightened.

I love Theodore’s history of diabetes. His statistics, however, I DO NOT love.

The US government’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention, reported in the May 2014 issue of “The New England Journal of Medicine,” (1) that the number of U.S. adults with diagnosed diabetes in 2014 was 26 million. “Another 79 million,’ it commented, have pre-diabetes and are at risk for developing the disease.”

The Diabetic Wine Lovers Guide ~ Jo’s Commentary

We all have choices:

  • Eat anything we want to, and wearing out our bodies with over indulgence.
    • Then, rely on drugs to “fix” us on a daily basis.
    • And… live with the drugs’ side effects on top of the problems with diabetes
  • Take our lives into our own hands.
    • And get real.

Diet, exercise, eating properly, and a positive attitude will take you to great places. This books suggests it all to you, too, in much more detail. With as many Americans who are either diabetic or per-diabetic, this book should just fly off the shelves. It’s staying on mine. I’ll buy the book for others. This one is a keeper.

    Interesting but I don’t see ‘MD’ among the authors’ ‘many degrees’ so hard to know whether the information within is balanced, reliable, referenced, etc. I’d like to hear what medical professionals think of its content.

    Till, the book is full of reports from health professionals. Theodore Berland used his many resources to put this book together. I just looked in acknowledgements and found over 10 serious credentials for individuals, Science Daily, Geneva – World Health Organization… just Chapter 1. Seven Chapter with their own resources. Appendices. Chapter 7 is quotes from experts: Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard, etc… It’s all there, in a very easy reading book, all of 101 pages. If you get the book, you’ll see for yourself.
