The answer to the question in the title is: you can eat pretty much anything, if you’re prepared for the consequences!

This book looks to give you the information to make your own decisions in that regard. There’s a large section on the science of glucose metabolism in the context of food (other aspects of glucose metabolism aren’t covered), so you will not simply be told “raw carrots are good; mashed potatoes are bad”, you’ll understand many factors that affect it, e.g:

  • Macronutrient profiles of food and resultant base glycemic indices
  • How the glycemic index changes if you cut something, crush it, mash it, juice it, etc
  • How the glycemic index changes if you chill something, heat it, fry it, boil it, etc
  • The many “this food works differently in the presence of this other food” factors
  • How your relative level of insulin resistance affects things itself

…and much more.

The style is simple and explanatory, without deep science, but with good science and comprehensive advice.

There are also the promised recipes; they’re in an appendix at the back and aren’t the main meat of the book, though.

Bottom line: if you’ve ever found it confusing working out what works how in the mysterious world of diabetes nutrition, this book is a top tier demystifier.
