Houston, Texas (NAPSI) - There’s good news for those with diabetes. Many feel they must choose between maintaining a healthy weight and managing their glucose levels. A new book says that it’s possible to do both.

Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator Jill Weisenberger has created a handbook with a one-year plan to help people with diabetes reach their weight-loss goals.

The book, “Diabetes Weight Loss—Week by Week: A Safe, Effective Method for Losing Weight and Improving Your Health,” is published by the American Diabetes Association. It discusses calories, keeping a food log, understanding carbs, introducing physical activity, and understanding what limitations you may have due to certain medications.

In addition to work sheets and action steps, the book also contains tips on how to halt negative self-talk, tame nighttime nibbles and conquer cravings.
