The National Diabetes Fact Sheet (2011) states that there are an estimated 25.8 million children and adults in the United States who have some form of diabetes and 79 million American have pre-diabetes. The numbers are growing rapidly because diabetes or pre-diabetes is linked to America’s other serious health problem: obesity.

My name is Gretchen Scalpi and I am a Registered Dietician (RD), a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) and a certified Wellcoach®. I work with people who have pre-diabetes or diabetes almost every day! The person with pre-diabetes or diabetes often feels overwhelmed by their diagnosis. “My doctor told me I should lose weight. That’s easier said than done!” “Everyone is telling me something different and now I simply don’t know what to eat!” “What do I need to do to start getting better?”

This e-book will give you some straightforward information to help answer some of your questions. Here are three key points I hope you take-away from reading this e-book:

  • You do not have to change everything about the way you eat or live: eating and lifestyle changes are best made in small steps.. one at a time.
  • You have many more options of foods you can eat, even though you may have heard otherwise.
  • Learning more about your diabetes or pre-diabetes, one step at a time will enable you to start taking charge of your own health and bring about a positive outcome.
