I get a lot of questions about using attuned eating with health related issues, such as diabetes. You can read the article I co-authored for the magazine Diabetes Self-Management at: http://www.dietsurvivors.com/BaconMatz_Diabetes_EnjoyingFood.pdf
Health At Every Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight also has a wealth of research and information about weight, health, attuned eating and nutritional concerns.
