Default Books/Resources?

Any recommendations on books or resources that you found helpful on your diabetic journey? I am reading all I can online, but wondered if you had any books you would recommend? Thanks!

The Rosedale Diet in addition to Shanny's suggestions was very enlightening to me on diet

Read the books for general background, then read this forum for what works on a daily basis.

Nina Teicholz's book is a great read, very good on the history of how diet advice got so screwed up along the way: The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet.

If you're taking insulin, I've also heard "Think LIke a Pancreas" is a great book to understand how it all works.

For a good basic diabetes book, try Diabetes for Dummies by Alan L Rubin MD.
Don't be put off by the name. The "For Dummies" books are written in a way the average folks can understand them. The book has good content for Type 2 Diabetes. If you have Type 1, Dr. Rubin also wrote Type 1 Diabetes for Dummies. (I have not read this one.)
