Diabetes Diet Inspires Patti To Cook Up Healthy Treats
Soul great Patti Labelle is so thrilled with her diabetes diet she's turned her winning recipes into a new healthy cook book.
The LADY MARMALADE singer, 59, has lost 13 kilograms (30 pounds) since she discovered she has diabetes - the disorder that contributed to her mother's premature death.
She says, "When I got diabetes, I thought my world had ended. I realised I had to change my eating habits or die."
LaBelle's new cookbook, LITE CUISINE, is already selling well in America.
She adds, "What I did was I stayed at my stove and invented. When you taste this food, you can't tell it's light - your tastebuds are satisfied."15/06/2003 21:27
