African American Guide to Living Well with Diabetes Book Excerpt:

“Covers the basics of food, exercise and medicine, but highlights two things not often found in diabetes books: soul food and spirit.”—A Sweet Life More than 4 million African Americans have diabetes; thousands more have pre-diabetes or are at risk for the condition. But in 21 years as a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, Constance Brown-Riggs found few books that even vaguely addressed the unique health concerns of this population. This comprehensive guide includes: The latest medical treatments for diabetes—medications, insulin therapies, blood glucose monitors, plus the pros and cons of supplements, herbs, and alternative diets. What you can’t eat—and what you can. Dozens of mouthwatering Caribbean and soul food recipes, with a two-week menu plan. The book received the Favorably Reviewed designation from the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE). The designation of Favorably Reviewed by AADE assures health professionals that the educational content of the book has been carefully evaluated by representatives of a variety of health professions based on set guidelines. “Shares a wealth of information about diabetes that has been specifically tailored for African Americans, in a down to earth fashion, and emphasizes the important interrelationships of spiritual health, mental health, and physical health.”—Norma J. Goodwin, M.D., founder, president and CEO, Health Power for Minorities “Connie Brown-Riggs’s . . . culturally appropriate messages are an extraordinary benefit to African Americans, particularly women, who are often not fully aware of the lifestyle changes they can and should make to prevent diabetes and improve their health and that of their families.”—Wendy C. Brawley, publisher and CEO, IMARA Woman Magazine

How to Thrive in Professional Practice Book Excerpt:

The world today is fast paced and societal expectations for impeccable service are high. This leaves organisations demanding unrealistic elitist performance from their staff with the same, and often fewer, resources available. This widespread ‘more for less’ attitude is seeing a dramatic rise in work related stress, with a high ratio of staff sickness, that not only creates a fiscal impact upon the organisation and the broader economy but also has the potential to create significant long term mental health issues for the staff affected. An engaging yet undemanding read, this book pulls together the various individual strains of self-care, spirituality and common sense, housing them under one external literary jacket, in a ‘whole system’ approach. A one stop ‘bible’ to give social workers and other professionals an uncomplicated, easy to read, go to resource that empowers them to manage and maintain their wellbeing through personal responsibility and self-care. We cannot alter professional, or indeed life’s demands, but by actively pursuing well-being in the professional population we can enhance skills to support open discussion in supervision, (or in personal reflection) so that individuals, (and organisations) can successfully rise up to meet challenges head on and reduce the risks associated with ‘burn out’. This book brings together different aspects of the four elements of wellbeing, which the authors have explored and tried for themselves within their own working lives. Their personal experiences, which they will share, will help to dispel the belief that everything has to be done to perfection. A little self-care on each of the four levels is better than none at all.

WITH THIS BOOK AS YOUR GUIDE, you'll simply create the life-style amendment lots of people have with success created.You can feel and appearance nice by feeding food that is healthy, natural, and delicious.It will profit your mental and physical health and supply constant energy throughout your day To achieve success, you'll have to know the terrible basics of your body and fasting.Low-fat, low-calorie, gluten-free, Atkins, Weight Watchers, South Beach the list of diets goes on.Most need you to starve yourself, eat bland, uninspiring food, strictly count calories, or bear numerous induction phases.The major drawback with these diets is that they are not forever nutritionally sound and they are never satisfying.That's simply not safe or sustainable. They are not a lifestyle.What the additional winning diets have in common is that the reduction of foods wealthy in carbohydrates.Studies show that individuals UN agency eat low-carb diets and do not scale back calories lose additional weight than those who eat low-fat diets and additionally scale back calories.In addition, low-carb dieters generally show more improvement for important health indicators like triglyceride, blood sugar, and insulin levels, and more This all comes down to how your body works.When you eat carbs, your body breaks them down into glucose, a simple sugar, which quickly and significantly raises your blood sugar levels.Then you turn out a hypoglycemic agent to cut back this spike in blood glucose.After years and years of this cycle, your body will need to produce more insulin at once to achieve the same results.You can quickly become hormone resistant, and very commonly this resistance turns into prediabetes, metabolic syndrome, and, eventually, type 2 diabetes.According to the American Diabetes Association's (ADAs) 2012 data, more than 1 in 3 adults in the United States have prediabetes and nearly 1 in 1o haveshows the number of obese adults in the United States has spiked since the 198os from 15 percent to 35 percent of all adults ages 20 to 74. This increase can only be attributed to a change in diet on a national scale. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) first released their Dietary Guidelines in 198o, and they recommended that fats and oils be heavily reduced along with sweets while carbohydratesshould account for many of your daily food consumption.Soon when they discharged the organic phenomenon Guide, which placed carbs into the largest section of the pyramid and recommended that you eat 6 to 11 servings a day.They also recommended eating 2 to 4 servings of fruit (which is full of natural sugars) a day.These tips, even decades later, have been used as a framework for the US consumer education messages by the surgeon general, CDC, and many other government organizations since then.Today, the adenosine deaminase promotes feeding "healthy carbohydrates" for diabetics rather than greatly reducing carbs from the diet.If carbs square measure ultimately sugar, and sugar ultimately causes many of these diseases, why are you told to prioritize carbs in your diet?There's no such thing as an essential carbohydrate. Your body can create the glucose it needs through a process called gluconeogenesis, where the liver converts glycerol (derived from fats) into glucose.Alternatively, you've no doubt been taught that saturated and monounsaturated fats cause heart disease, cholesterol problems, and many other issues.In the last decade, dozens of studies and multiple meta-studies (studies that analyze other studies' results) with over goo, o00 subjects from almost 100 different data sets have shown similarconclusions: ingestion saturated and monounsaturated fats haven't any effects on cardiovascular disease risks, short- or long.Most fats are sensible and are essential to our health that's why there are essential fatty acids and essential amino acids (protein).
