diabetic diet





As well as recipes, the new IDDT recipe book, Diabetes - Food, Meds and

More, has an emphasis on lifestyle, a focus on real life, day-to-day situations and

dietary information. The book has came as a response to listening to people with

diabetes and their families who have been in contact with the international charity

based in Northampton. IDDT acting chief executive Martin Hirst, who wrote the

book along with experienced dietician and nutritionist Dr Mabel Blades, said:

"People with diabetes or pre-diabetes are often told they need to eat healthily

and while this is not bad advice, it can leave people feeling confused and without

the information they need, at what can be a stressful time. Our experience is

that healthy eating means different things to different people and despite views

that people should not feel restricted by having diabetes, many people prefer to

be given more direction about their diet, especially at the time of diagnosis, for

special occasions or if they are unwell." The book also has sections for people

with diabetes and coeliac disease, a lifestyle essential, and for vegetarians and

vegans with diabetes, lifestyle choices. It is a book to dip into when necessary

rather than to read from cover to cover. It is available for £8.99 plus £1.50

postage and packaging from www.iddt.org

For the first time in 15 years, three restaurants have scored full marks (10/10), in the

Good Food Guide, published by Waitrose and now in its 64th year.

In another first, Clare Smyth, Chef/Proprietor at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay has become

the first female chef in fifteen years to be awarded a perfect ten score by the best

selling restaurant guide, as it publishes its 2015 ranking of the UK's Top 50 restaurants

on 8th September. For the second year running, Simon Rogan's Cumbrian restaurant,

L'Enclume, has achieved the top spot. At number two is Heston Blumenthal's The Fat

Duck, which has now scored a perfect ten for seven years in a row - longer than any

other restaurant since the guide adopted its current scoring system. Restaurant Gordon

Ramsay achieved third place with its top score, rising two places from last year. The book

is £14.99 from www.thegoodfoodguide.co.uk
