This awesome book was on my bookshelf for a few years before I took it down to go toe to toe with gestational diabetes. I was a wreck because type 2 is on both sides of the family tree. This book was a lifesaver because I did not want to have an 11 pound baby and increase her chances of problems later, yet alone mine. This plan gave me sanity while doing my daily finger-sticks; I also have the allergy book which has helped others in my family. This guide is the best thing that has happened to my lifestyle and I share the blood type lifestyle with so many people I come across.
