Al Snapp, Author Of ‘Eat Great And Lose Weight: The Natural Cure For Diabetes’, Credits Dr. Oz

The concepts in 'Eat Great And Lose Weight' demonstrate that by making simple dietary changes, readers can not only reduce the risk of Type II diabetes, but can begin to lose weight and feel great in just a few days. Al Snapp, author of the book, credits Dr. Oz with the inspiration for writing the book and also for giving him and others a new lease on life

Type II Diabetes makes headlines nearly every day. Even celebrities, such as chef Paula Deen have fallen prey to the condition. For most, the only solution was to eat bland, boring foods and follow a restrictive diet. Most people cannot or will not follow such plans. Now Al and Michelle Snapp have solved this problem in 'Eat Great And Lose Weight: The Natural Cure For Diabetes'.

The Snapps credit Dr. Oz for giving them the inspiration to write the book and for providing the impetus to overcome both Type II Diabetes and heart disease.

"Being diagnosed with diabetes" stated Al Snapp, "and being a heart patient was scary; solutions were hard to find.  We were watching the Oprah show with Dr. Oz, he was talking about diabetes causes and cures. He explained how sugar destroys your body along with starches, processed food and anything white. There was hope though; you could reverse diabetes by diet changes. Avoid sugar, anything white, processed and fried food. Choose a high fiber, low carb diet, along with whole grains. We watched this show three times; it changed our lives in a serous way."

Al is no longer a diabetic or heart patient and takes no medications thanks to the priciples put forth by Dr. Oz. He has written a book that demonstrates how it may be possible for anyone to do the same.

The new book, now available in both standard paperback and Kindle formats, offers a simple plan to lose weight and possibly reverse Type II Diabetes and the associated medical costs through simple diet changes that nearly anyone can make. Unlike other weight loss and diabetic food plans, ‘Eat Great & Lose Weight’ features gourmet recipes that help make getting healthy enjoyable. The recipes have been developed using everyday food items available in any grocery store. Group discounts are available for retail outlets.

"Between 1990 and 2010", co-author Al Snapp stated, "the incidence of diagnosed diabetes has nearly tripled. The complications from diabetes can at best be very costly and at worst be deadly. We hope to make this book available to anyone who has been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes or is currently borderline. We believe the ideas presented here hold the key to beating Type II Diabetes, as it offers a solution that is simple to understand, easy to implement, is extremely affordable and can work."

Al Snapp has always loved good food. As a result, he was overweight and at age 55 suffered a heart attack. Things got much worse when he was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. His doctor informed him that he could go blind, lose his legs and, in time, the combination may finally kill him. Al and his wife Michelle, a gourmet cook, realized the only course of action was to change their diet and do the best they could do to beat the odds. Though they searched all the information available to them, they couldn’t find a book that offered workable solutions involving tasty and healthy food choices. And so they wrote it. The book has been endorsed by a leading Cardiologist, Dr. Claudio Manubens, former Chief Of Staff at Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center.”

‘Eat Great & Lose Weight’ is unique in that the concepts in the book overcome the challenges inherent in following a weight loss or Type II Diabetes eating plan. The foods are inexpensive and gourmet recipes from 'Michelle's Kitchen' are featured throughout the book to help assure that the reader can continue to enjoy the foods they have always enjoyed.

“This book is for anyone,” continued Mr. Snapp, “who has decided to change their lifestyle and become healthy, without using pills or expensive plans. The recipes are at a gourmet level, but the foods used to create those recipes are available in any grocery store. By simply changing what you eat, you’ll eat five times a day, never diet and feel better in days. You can reverse Type 2 diabetes, control heart disease, lose weight and live a healthier life."
