It's specifically designed to optimize blood sugar control by helping you incorporate highly effective nutritional strategies into your personalized daily menu.

Menu plans like this one often fail because they are missing something very important for diabetics...supplements!

Centered around strict dietary guidelines, our sample menus target the cause of diabetes with nutrient-rich foods and powerful supplements.

The menu samples are available for you to read at no cost. What's better than free information written by expert medical doctors and nutritionists?
