“A provocative and illuminating hypothesis boldly challenging long-held beliefs on Type 2 diabetes and its current methods of control, in favor of what Poothullil finds to be a more logical scientific explanation for high blood sugar and the key step to reversing diabetes—avoiding grains.
“The book is a no-brainer must-read for any Type 2 diabetic who truly wants to change, and who is open to consider a new scientific equation for understanding their diabetes along with different approaches to not just control it, but eliminate it from one’s life. All that’s required is a willingness to change lifestyle choices.”
“I have read many books on Type II Diabetes, which I have, but none have both persistently pointed to the cause–grains, sugar, too much of all of it–while gently showing how to change it. I stress eat and I love pasta, bread, toast, bagels, rice, especially at night. Somehow, Dr. Poothullil’s clear but also kind direction about why and how we get diabetes really helped me recommit to changing what I am eating. I also like the simplicity of it–avoid these foods (unfortunately, the ones you want), and eat other foods. Eat these new foods slowly and enjoy them. Enjoy being alive and watch your blood sugar numbers drop. Here goes….”
“Dr. Poothullil has opened my eyes to the true culprit of my type 2 diabetes. I have already begun to implement his solutions in my daily diet. Thank you for all of your efforts in bringing this disease into the light. I always thought I would be stuck with this “disease” for the rest of my life, Dr. Poothullil has given me fresh hope in changing that outlook.”
EAT CHEW LIVE has changed my life. I was fascinated by Dr. John Poothullil’s theory that Type-2 diabetes is not caused by insulin resistance and I began implementing the practices from the book in my own life. In the first six months, my blood sugar went way down and I began to lose weight. I’m happy to recommend EAT CHEW LIVE because I know it will absolutely be a positive book in your life.
Since reading EAT CHEW LIVE, I’ve cut my insulin intake in half. I would normally visit my doctor every three months, and now I only need to see him every six months. I used to check my blood sugar twice a day, and now I only check it once. This book has made me a different person.
I have been a diabetic for 17 years. After implementing what Dr. Poothullil described in this book, I have lost 33 pounds and reduced my insulin usage to one-fourth of what I was taking before.
After implementing what Dr. Poothullil recommends, I lost thirty pounds. In fact, I seem to have trouble gaining even a couple of pounds back when trying to, as instructed by my family doctor who wanted me to have “a little reserve.”
Through Dr. Poothullil’s help and putting into practice his ideas, I have lost over 100 pounds. It has given me hope that there is another way to care for diabetes, think about food, and eat.
