"Sometimes it's absolutely liberating to be wrong about diabetes! This myth-busting powerhouse is a 'must-read'. The stories about other people with diabetes (herself included) that Riva Greenberg weaves into the book are further proof that what we don't know about diabetes—or what we erroneously think we know—can oftentimes be more damaging than diabetes itself."
Sheri Colberg, PhD, Exercise physiologist and Author of eight books including 50 Secrets of the Longest Living People with Diabetes, The 7 Step Diabetes Fitness Plan, and Diabetic Athlete's Handbook
