Book brings world

foods to the fore

I

t's easy The team behind the #1 bestselling Carbs & Cals

health books have created the first carb awareness guide

targeted specifically at Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME)

communities. The new book is expected to improve health

outcomes, as it uses the same tried-and-tested visual method

pioneered by Carbs & Cals over the last 10 years. The book brings much

needed guidance to individuals from African, Arabic, Caribbean and

South Asian communities who have a greater risk of developing Type

2 diabetes than those from white backgrounds, and can develop the

condition from a much earlier age. The resource is also welcomed by

HCPs who, to date, have had limited information about some of the

ingredients in the traditional diets of these communities.

"Lifestyle and dietary management is fundamental to the treatment

of diabetes," says co-author and Diabetes Specialist Dietitian Salma

Mehar. "Typical diets of BAME communities often contain up to 60%

carbohydrate. Helping them understand how carbs impact their blood

glucose, and how to alter portion sizes and food choices, is key to

taking control of their diet and diabetes."

The book contains 750 photos of food and drinks that are regularly

consumed by African, Arabic, Caribbean and South Asian communities.

The simple language used avoids misunderstandings occurring about

food names, portion sizes and the effect these have on blood sugar. The

book is sponsored by the North West London Collaboration of

Clinical Commissioning Groups and is supported by Diabetes

UK. Published by Chello Publishing, the book is available

online at Amazon and can be ordered from bookshops for

around £12.99.
