Reverse Your Diabetes in 12 Weeks

The Scientifically Proven Program to Avoid, Control, and Turn Around Your Diabetes

By George King Royce Flippin

A groundbreaking program to avoid, control, and even reverse diabetes through diet and exercise.

The research of Dr. George King, chief scientific officer of Harvard Medical School’s Joslin Diabetes Center, is widely recognized in the medical community as the gold standard. In Reverse Your Diabetes in 12 Weeks (previously published in hardcover as The Diabetes Reset), Dr. King transforms the center’s cutting-edge research—including the discovery of brown fat and how it enhances the effects of the body’s own insulin—into a program of eight proven strategies.

Foremost is diet—but the real surprise is that the diet that actually works, a modified “rural Asian diet,” derives 70% of its calories from carbohydrates. Dr. King disentangles the myths and confusion surrounding carbohydrates, fats, protein, and fiber, and shows why not all carbs are bad and why sugar is not the root of all evil. Losing weight is also key, but in a very doable way—significant changes happen with a 5 to 7% reduction of body weight. He emphasizes the importance of exercise—it increases the muscles’ glucose-absorbing ability—and gives an easy-to-follow program of aerobic and strength exercises. And he shows why diabetics especially need those seven hours of sleep a night—chronic lack of sleep causes insulin resistance.

A twelve-week plan shows how to put all of it into action—to take charge of blood glucose levels and significantly improve your health.
