I had a full blood work up the other day, and I am not diabetic, but my doctor thinks I could be eventually.  My insurance does not pay for a nutritionist, so I am looking for book suggestions of low carb or diabetic diets.  Thanks!

I am a prediabetic and have been able to remain so for three years and counting. "The Insulin Resistance Diet" really helped me to understand the eating part of it. Good luck to you!!

There was a thread in traditional foods for people who were Primal/Paleo/Grain-Free/Low-Carb

(all of which would fit the low carb/diabetic diet requirement)

 

Books I would suggest are:

The Paleo Diet by Loren Cordain

The Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson

Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas

The Diabetes Solution(also The Diabetes Diet) by Richard Bernestein

Protein Power by Micheal and Mary Eades

 

hope that helps :)
