I recently purchased Alan Shanley’s book “What on earth can I eat”. The process of buying an E-book was new to me but went surprisingly smoothly. The first thing I have to say about this book is that I wish I had read something like this ten years ago. Alan admits to not being a medical expert but he is diabetic and has immersed himself in the subject wholeheartedly.
He shares with the reader his research giving some excellent informative links to others work. More than that he is not afraid to tell us of the times things have not gone to plan. He shows the reader ways to enjoy their food, have a few treats and gives some great recipes and tips. This book will be helpful to newly diagnosed diabetics and to those like me who believed the advice of the “professionals” and assumed that they knew it all,followed the advice but after years of increasing medication and ever higher sugar levels decided that most of the medical advice is often less than helpful.
