From Peterborough, New Hampshire, USA:

Have you ever heard about the "Schwarzbein Principal" Diet?


Many of my patients with type 2 diabetes find the book The Schwarzbein Principle: The Truth About Weight Loss, Health and Aging by practicing endocrinologist Diana Schwarzbein, MD to be a great resource in both blood sugar management and weight loss. Dr. Schwarzbein emphasizes a lower carb approach to meals (30-45 grams Carb) and snacks (15-30 grams Carb), while supporting the use of heart healthy fats and protein sources. You can learn more about Dr. Schwarzbein's approach to type 2 diabetes and health maintenance at her website. We have found her approach to be an option for some participants in our cardiovascular disease prevention programs.
