Published 6:44 am Tuesday, July 17, 2012

(NAPSI)—There’s good news for those with diabetes. Many feel they must choose between maintaining a healthy weight and managing their glucose levels. A new book says that it’s possible to do both.

Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator Jill Weisenberger has created a handbook with a one-year plan to help people with diabetes reach their weight-loss goals.

The book, “Diabetes Weight Loss—Week by Week: A Safe, Effective Method for Losing Weight and Improving Your Health,” is published by the American Diabetes Association. It discusses calories, keeping a food log, understanding carbs, introducing physical activity, and understanding what limitations you may have due to certain medications.
