The, second edition is divided into two phases — Lose It! and Live It! — designed to help at-risk individuals prevent and control diabetes by losing weight quickly and safely, and then maintaining that weight loss.

The Lose It! phase is a simple, straight-forward, two-week plan that encourages quick but safe weight loss that can help lower blood sugar.

The Live It! phase of the diet offers basic and manageable steps and lifestyle changes and choices that are designed to help participants lose one to two pounds a week until a healthy weight is reached, and then to keep the pounds off.

Mayo Clinic's weight-loss and nutrition experts have packed this book with meal plans, tools, menus, practical solutions, and specific tips on how to improve health and lose weight safely. The Mayo Clinic Diabetes Diet, tackles all the familiar obstacles that get in the way of weight loss — lack of exercise, resistance to healthy food, too little time to cook, a hectic schedule, struggles with cravings, and minimal support from family and friends. It's a reliable and safe companion for losing weight and controlling diabetes.
