I weighed almost 400lbs and was a Bad Diabetic, as my elderly mother declares, as if there were any other kind. When I was diagnosed in 1988, Diabetes education was all but absent from medicine and Diabetes was not the national epidemic it is today.

I did little to address the disease and eventually was taking more than the maximum doses of oral anti-diabetic medication and insulin injections, and my blood sugar levels were still abysmal. I was suffering from the effects of uncontrolled Diabetes. After a revelation in 2003, I changed my lifestyle. Through common sense weight loss and the pursuit of fitness, I not only beat the disease, I changed my life in unexpected ways. After walking off more than 125 pounds, I was able to discontinue all the medications.

My blood sugar levels became perfectly normal, better than normal. The success I achieved is typical of the majority of overweight Type 2 Diabetics who make similar changes in their lives. Education has become a passion for me, and I want to inspire every overweight Type 2 Diabetic to change their lives. I want them to understand there is hope, there is a way to manage their weight and Diabetes, there is a way to avoid the long term suffering of retinopathy, blindness, neuropathy, amputation, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, and slow death due to systemic organ failure.

Carls honest account of his weight loss journey is phenomenal. He literally saves his own life by changing what he eats. His nutritional advice includes proven methods for weight loss along with practical ideas for planning healthy meals and snacks. He shows that dramatic improvements in health are possible with better nutrition and increased physical activity. Inspiring and motivating!

-- Amy Pope, MS, RD, LD, CDE Passing Through, Carl Moores memoir of his struggle with and on-going triumph over diabetes, is vivid and compelling and painfully honest. With the narrative energy of a page-turner, here is a story that left this reader much more informed about not only the disease itself, but also dieting strategies that work and those that dont. I gasped, I cried, I laughed out loud. I could not stop turning the pages of this beautifully written book. -- Cathy Smith Bowers, Poet Laureate of North Carolina Carls is a poignant story of his personal struggle with the demons in his life.

His story from diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes and subsequent love affair with food as an addiction is a lifelong journey. Food quieted the inner voice of not okay. The internal respect he gains from achieving professional successes plus love from family/friends leads him to accepting responsibility for his health management. Re-learning health habits of many years - for example not eating a bag of orange cocaine, or Cheetos, in his hourly commute from a city an hour away - was not easy.

Patience with oneself as small strides are made toward reducing weight through physical activity and portion control is a reminder that it takes years to put it on and years to lose it. Carl has been an inspiration to my patients and me. -- Elizabeth Todd Heckel, MSW, CDE - Lived with Type 1 diabetes for over 44 years. Camp mother and now grandmother to the Carolinas largest overnight camp for children with diabetes, Camp Adam Fisher Everyone is touched by Diabetes in some way and everyone is affected by the growing drains on our national health care system.

Passing Through is about fighting a disease - Diabetes - an ongoing, daily battle fought with a fork and walking shoes. This is a story about losing weight -- and the advice will work for anyone - but this is not a typical how-to weight loss book.

The wisdom of Diet & Exercise holds true even in our Starbucks and McDonalds society. For the swelling ranks of Type 2 Diabetics, this is a battle that can be won. Passing Through is a message of truth and hope from someone who has lived it.
