reducing added sugars and cutting back

on starchy food. Part of their advice is

to eat foods in their natural form, rather

than processed foods, which can have a

detrimental effect on health.

The book also contains tips for eating

out, holiday food and how to keep active.

Help on portion sizes is given throughout

the book and there is a CarbScale which

should help readers find the diet that best

suits them. There is a foreword by Dr

David Unwin, a Royal College of General

Practitioners Clinical expert in diabetes,

and recently voted one of the top 10 most

influential GPs in the UK. He saved his

practice £57,000 on medication for Type

2 diabetes by encouraging patients to

adopt a low-carb diet rather than tackle

it by only taking medicines.

The Caldesis own restaurants Caldesi

in London's Marylebone and Caldesi in

Campagna in Bray, as well as the Italian

Cookery School La Cucina Caldesi. They

are co-authors of Around the World

Preserving, which was nominated for

the Guild of Food Writers' Cookbook of

the Year Award.

MAKING CARBS COUNT

The Diabetes Weight-Loss Cookbook

by Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi.

"We all know that a good pizza is hard to beat," says Giancarlo Caldesi,

"I have experimented with various alternative bases: cauliflower bases

have an overpowering taste; cheese-only bases are just too fatty; and

sweet potato bases are too high in carbs. So here we have it - tadah! Our perfect pizza base is made from

the humble courgette and a

handful of almonds. It is both crisp around the edges and supports the

taste of the topping without overwhelming it - and the kids love it, too.

I peel the courgette so that it doesn't have green flecks in the dough,

but use the whole vegetable if you prefer. Italy's "pizzaioli" (pizzamakers) are

divided between those who prefer cow's milk mozzarella

and those who would only dream of using buffalo milk mozzarella.

The latter contains more water but, in my opinion, the taste is superior.

If you choose to use cow's milk mozzarella, don't buy the one the

manufacturers say is for making pizza - it is rubbery and flavourless.

Just buy full-fat mozzarella. Whichever you opt for, tear the cheese into

pieces and drain in a sieve while you make the base."
