Publishing Day: The Heart Healthy Lifestyle is Now Available on Amazon!
The Heart Healthy Lifestyle: The Prevention and Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes is now available in e-book form on Amazon!
I'm thrilled...and exhausted. I have said that I worked on the book for the past 14 months, but that is not true. Yes, I wrote it over the past 14 months. However, the research going into The Heart Healthy Lifestyle comes from the last decade. That's the time that I have spent reading studies and working with diabetic and prediabetic clients.
More importantly, I'm thrilled because the recommendations in this book are proven to work and I'm excited to see how many people can improve their lifestyles, prevent type 2 diabetes, or prevent the long-term side effects of diabetes: heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, nerve damage, loss of sight, kidney failure, limb amputation, premature death, etc..
The book is constructed in a different format than most health books. I am a huge advocate of autonomy, so you are given many ideas for actions you can take in your daily life. Like a buffet, you choose the options for your plate. Each lifestyle idea is provided with a minimum dosage in mind, so if you are worried about trying or sustaining the action, you have the option to start by dipping your toe in the water.
All of the recommendations are rooted in research and have been performed by my clients and/or me. While people naturally vary in the amount they respond to an individual action, it's likely that you will respond strongly (in a positive manner) to at least some of the actions I advocate.
Whether you are a long-time follower of The Heart Healthy Lifestyle (formerly Health-Actualization), a first time viewer, or somewhere in the middle, if this sounds like something that can help you or a loved one, please take a minute to order it today. It's the culmination of years of hard work and a book that provides the opportunity to help many prevent diabetes or diabetic complications through simple lifestyle adjustments.
Thank you for reading The Heart Healthy Lifestyle: The Prevention and Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes and for following. It's been a pleasure to write for you over the past five years. With all of this said, the best is yet to come.
