Q: Dad’s health is getting worse…his weight is going up, because heart trouble keeps him from getting his usual exercise…then, yesterday they told him “You are borderline Diabetic… You need to get your diet under control…”
I know that he’s going to go looking for cheats and treats because of his sweet tooth (Which I also inherited.) Figured I’d see if you guys had some ideas of stuff that will help. For instance I was thinking about making him a tub of Blueberry Frozen Yogurt… Half Sweetend up with splenda…Thanks for any help.

A: Thanks for writing, Wally. We certainly do have a few options for you and your Dad to consider….

Most people are familiar with diabetes and hyperglycemia. After all, both are extremely common. But when you ask most people what diabetes and hyperglycemia really are – even persons who have diabetes or hyperglycemia – it’s clear most people don’t understand either condition.
Because the answer you usually get – “high blood sugar” – isn’t really correct.

Bodybuilders and fitness athletes have known it for a long time; if you want to lose body fat a low-glycemic/high-protein diet is the way to go. So why don’t more overweight people know this and will this approach work for non-athletes too?
