    I received this book in Feb., but started with the first week of recipes. Most of the meals have been good, some have been excellent. They seem to be right in line with low glycemic diet guidelines. Several meals that claim to serve 4 didn’t serve 3. I have skipped some meals, but have tried several new herbs and vegs.

    One reservation–not everyone can tolerate chili, cumin, cayenne pepper, and other “hot” food items. Suggestions for alternate flavorings would have been nice.

    I intend to keep using this book to the end, and then start over again, with my own notes and reminders on each recipe I have already tried.

    My mother-in-law recently suffered a heart attack. Her doctor sent her home with dietary information, but she had difficulty using the information to develop daily menus. I ordered this book for her, and from the first day she found recipes that made sense, were easy to prepare, and better still, were tasty selections. She is able to plan her shopping trips so that she buys staples on a monthly basis, and perishables weekly. She has since lost 30 pounds (in 2 1/2 months), is now exercising regularly, and all of her friends want the book as well. We are ordering for our household, and will continue to refer people to this wonderful cookbook.

    This cookbook has great recipes! The results are consistent and the directions are easy to follow. I love the weekly grocery list & the diversity of the recipes.

    I have this cook book and it’s one of the best cookbooks I own. We don’t have diabetes but I am on Weight Watchers and these recipes are good for those trying to lose weight but love tasty, delicious easy-to-make recipes. I bought a couple of these books for friends for the holidays.

    I bought this cookbook when my husband was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I have been using it now for 4 weeks, and there are some good points and bad. I really like the idea, and having a weekly grocery list pre-prepared is great. Some of the recipes are rather bland, but overall easy. I have found some really good ones too, we especially like the side dish recipes. I do have 2 big complaints: I wonder if some of the recipes were ever tried by the author. For example, the recipe for Greek Lemon Chicken and rice has a marinade for the chicken that is then supposed to be cooked to a boil to use as a sauce, the recipe yielded so little marinade it barely covered the chicken much less left enough over to create a sauce. My 2nd big complaint is there are a few recipes where cooking temperatures and times have been left out.
