I must have about 80 cookery books and if I want a recipe for anything I look it up on the internet!  How mad is that?

I just got "Jamie Does" cos Smith's gave me a voucher to get it for £5 when I bought a magazine (cookery mag!  LOL!) and as a book it's a jolly good read.

No is the very short answer.

It all depends on what you are looking for, frankly.  An awful lot of cook books will say they are for diabetics and when you look, some of the recipes have more carbs than a lot of us would eat in an average whole day !

And how many carbs you 'would' eat is determined by your BG meter.  Not mine, not anyone's elses, just yours.

Does the diabetic in question wish - or need - to lose weight?  Is he/she a vegetarian?  What other health prblems do they have? - eg coeliac so no wheat, or allergic to shellfish or something else.  Do they wish to make food for the whole family to enjoy ...... too many variables !

There are lower carb recipes in our recipe section and even more in that section on the Archive Forum.  They are not claimed to be low calorie though !

Thing is if like me you are T1, aren't watching weight and are not unusually hampered by carbs, then you don't need a specially defined cookbook.  I like the recipes for lower carb 'treats' that I wouldn't usually have because if you eat a stack of carbs it makes the higher doseage of insulin needed to cover them, a lot less reliable to calculate correctly using the formula that applies to me for lower amounts of them.

PS - as this is your first post - could you introduce yourself (in the Intro section) and tell us a bit more about you, or the diabetic you are speaking of - then we can tailor any advice more sensibly and helpfully !

Misterchris is a long-standng member from the old forum.

WB Chris.  There's a downloadable version of our cookbook on our main site, or Dana Carpender writes some good low carb cookbooks.

Was just waiting for an appointment when I posted before... to be a bit more long-winded, avoid like the plague any cook-book from Diabetes UK, Good Housekeeping or Anthony Worrall-Thompson, I have wasted money on the latter two.  Instead of looking for diabetic cook-books (ha, you never knew books could be diabetic did you?  LOL!) look for low carb cook books.  There are at least a dozen of Dana's books listed here http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_14?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=dana+carpender&sprefix=Dana+Carpender%2Caps%2C286
and I do know that a lot of our members use her books and say the results are delicious.  Dana is diabetic herself.  Her blog is "holdthetoast" and there are some example recipes here http://holdthetoast.com/taxonomy/term/5
