Peg BS: It's time for weight loss! HELP!! (282* d) RE: BS: It's time for weight loss! HELP!! 13 Jan 04

For those interested in reading more about blood sugarand its effect upon health, I highly recommend any of the books of Dr. Lendon Smith. He has written several, including Feed Yourself Right, Feed Your Kids Right, and Dr. Lendon Smith's Low-Stress Diet.

He offers very logical and readable advice about all sorts of complaints, and has a holistic approach, reminding readers that   symptoms are asign that change needs to occur at a very basic level. He also says, quite rightly, that the heartburn, headaches, irritability and skin rashes of today may well be the cancer, heart disease, diverticulitis and diabetes of tomorrow.

He also urges people to discover what foods they have sensitivities/allergies to (in most cases symptoms are mild or seem unrelated to   food, and the troublesome foods are those we tend to eat/want every day, like eggs, chicken, wheat, beef, chocolate, corn, milk, cheese, sugar, coffee). But many years of eating these foods can cause serious problems for those sensitive to them. Once a food is left out of thediet for three months or more, it can in many cases be re-introduced occasionally, say, once a week, but not on a regular basis. He says if you know what foods   gave your mother problems when she was pregnant with you, those are the foods you should avoid. His years of work as a pediatric nutritionist led to his research on sugar and its effects on adults; he thinks low blood sugar is a much more pervasivce problem than most doctors do.

I would guess a search on might locate some of his books...and I have seen them in used bookstores and libraries, too.
