My Most Useful Book List

Some of my favorite books about managing diabetes, and strategies for eating with diabetes:
  1. Diabetes Solution by Richard K. Bernstein
  2. Think Like a Pancreas by Gary Scheiner
  3. Your Diabetes Science Experiment by Ginger Vieira
  4. Pumping Insulin by John Walsh
  5. Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon
  6. The Rosedale Diet by Ron Rosedale
  7. Primal Blueprint Cookbook by Mark Sisson and Jennifer Meier
  8. Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf
  9. Why We Get Fat, and What to Do About It by Gary Taubes
I plan to review some of these resources and describe the ways I have found them useful. I have been impressed with the most recent updates to many well known books. The developments, research, and understanding of metabolism has moved forward and the latest versions are worth checking out.


  1. Great list! There's really only one there that I am not familiar with (going to reader Ginger's book soon) which is the pumping book. All in good time, I guess!

  2. This is a great list. I haven't read the pumping one either. But since I'm too trigger happy I probably won't be reading it anytime soon. Not counting myself out for using the pump again in the future but for now, sticking to the most simple basics. I look forward to your posts about some of these great resources!

  3. hi Nathan

    your bookshelf looks similar to mine. glad i stumbled across your blog. my son was dx 2.6 years ago. i have followed nourishing traditions for over 15 years and we added a paleo/primal template to the mix.along with dr. b. inspired lower carb after dx.
    you are doing a great job!
