Ms. Clegg I have been meaning to e-mail for some time now. Last week I happen to catch you on an morning TV show, while exercising, which reminded me to f/u. I am a 55 yo male who was recently (Jan. 2008) diagnosed as diabetic and I work in the health field. I had been in a prediabetic state and was not concerned during that time. Anyway, after the diagnosis my wife and I went to Borders to look fo some recipe books, looked at several and purchased your - "Diabetic Cooking". Since then (3 1/2 months) I myself have made countless recipes from you book (Blueberry Bread last evening). I have prepared more meals for my wife and I than I have in the preceding almost 35 yrs of our marriage and have lost over 45 lbs and 7 1/2" off my waist. In fact, my glucose has returned to normal and I feel so much better, physically, psychologically and emotionally - that I want to say thanks. I wish your recipe book did not contain the word "diabetic" in it. The recipes are fantastic for all and it may reach a wider base of food-lovers.
I want to thank you again for shipping the book to me in Shreveport. Tonight I made the smothered chicken. So simple, but so delicious! I will owe you big for my cooking skills one day. Going on 4 years that I've been cooking from your books! Most of my time is spent sitting at a desk studying, so I'm always looking for ways to cut calories, while still eating all the required nutrients (and more importantly, enjoy eating it!) Most healthy recipes require you to buy some obscure, expensive ingredient. Your recipes are normal, everyday ingredients, and I can't express how thankful I am to have your books to use as guidance. You can still enjoy mealtime and savor food without developing diabetes and hypertension. I hope to somehow incorporate nutritional education into my medical practice, no matter what specialty I end up in. Thank you for your efforts to teach people like me! Your efforts reach further than you probably realize!
Holly, I just wanted to tell you that I absolutely love your Diabetic Cookbook. In 2006 I developed gestational diabetes during my first pregnancy. My mom bought me the cookbook and we started cooking recipes from it. My mom is a weight watchers member so she loves all of your cookbooks. After I had my second child last year I also joined weight watchers and started using that diabetic cookbook again and lost 40 pounds (I now weigh 20 pounds less than my pre-pregnancy weight!!!). I probably cook out of it three nights a week. All of my friends now have the book because I rave about it all of the time. I borrow my mom's Gulf Coast Favorites all of the time and make copies of things to cook. That's a great one, too. I just wanted you to know how much we love your recipes and books! Hope you come out with a new one soon!
