The Healthiest Diet in the World!

The Mediterranean diet has been hailed as "The World's Healthiest Diet!". Ayhan, founder of a leading restaurant group in New York for over 25 years, used his popular Mediterranean restaurant cuisine to create Ayhan's Mediterranean Menu Plans®, a healthy weight loss program. It combines delicious, healthy foods in the proper portions to ensure steady weight loss that stays off.

The recipes, founded on two thousand years of cuisine are made for quick, easy preparation using high quality ingredients. These award winning recipes have been analyzed and portion controlled by the nutritionist Debra Grossano. Now you can enjoy delicious meals that will help you lose weight and stay healthy, if you follow the plan's ingredients and the proper portions.

Mediterranean cuisine has many healthy foods. Debra enhanced this latent health factor by focusing each meal on balanced nutritional content and regulated portions. From wine for a healthy heart to whole grains, dry fruits and vegetables for its high fiber, each meal has been created to offer the high nutritional value in keeping with your individual weight loss goal.

Ayhan is originally from the island of Cyprus, and spent many years studying Mediterranean cuisine from Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Israel and Sicily. He opened his first Mediterranean restaurant in Long Island over 25 years ago and now has the largest group of Mediterranean restaurants in New York. He used this knowledge and experience to create a well balanced, enjoyable, healthy diet that is proven to take off the weight for good. The many health benefits of the Mediterranean diet include helping to prevent heart attacks, reducing blood pressure, and assist in reducing the risk of breast and prostate cancer.

All of the recipes are created to provide an enjoyable balanced meal and the ingredients selected are intended to promote health and weight reduction in a harmonious blend. All the ingredients needed are easily available either online or at your local supermarket. From fresh vegetables and fish to wine, the recipes offer the delicious dining experiences prepared in a few minutes. The quality of easily prepared meals that are rich in flavor and use fresh ingredients is generally superior to most diet plans that use pre-packed or frozen meals.

DESCRIPTION: Ayhan's 28 Day Mediterranean Diet provides easy, delicious recipes to help you lose 10 pounds fast. These authentic recipes have been served in Ayhan's popular New York restaurants for decades and have been portion controlled by professional dietitians. <br /> <br /> The book is an introduction to Ayhan's Mediterranean Menu Plan which is available online. The online diet plan is personalized and contains nutritional analysis for each recipe. The diet has been endorsed by doctors and is supported by Ayhan's Mediterranean Salad Dressings which are sold in major supermarkets.<br /> <br /> The Mediterranean cuisine has been described as the "healthiest diet in the world", based on many scientific studies that have shown it to increase longevity and reduce heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's, asthma, gallstones and the risk factors of Metabiloc Syndrome. <br /> <br /> Ayhan's delicious recipes are easy to make and most of them take less than 10 minutes to prepare.

I was very disappointed in this book. First, it's not what I know to be the Mediterranean Diet. Plus, the book title is misleading - it is not a 28 Day Diet Plan. There is no first day, etc., you need to go online to join the diet plan. It was a complete waste of money. "The French Don't Diet Plan" book really tells you how to eat on the Mediterranean Diet.

This book has so many delicious recipes that I think it would make a wonderful addition to anyone's library, whether they are dieting or not. The fact that the recipes are healthy and help those who want to lose weight are an added plus!

I am also impressed by the detail used in the book, not only with respect to the recipes but also regarding the nutritional content of each dish and the time investment required for cooking.

The variety of recipes and planning for a month's worth of meals makes this a diet that I think could be implemented indefinitely, which means that this book helps facilitate lifestyle change, and lifestyle change, and not yo-yo weight loss and gain, is what dieting SHOULD be about.

There is no gimmick to the Mediterranean Diet - compared to the over-hyped South Beach, Sonoma Diets, etc, nothing works quite like the tried and true Mediterranean Diet Plan. This book makes an amazing introduction to the health benefits of this time-tested diet plan and provides extremely easy to follow recipes for the busy, health conscious individual. Highly recommended.

I love this book! It reminded me of meals with my grandmother who grew up in the Mediterranean. She always made special meals with spinach, dill, lemon, olive oil & phyllo dough, very different than the typical American diet. She always used natural ingredients too. When I read this diet I flipped, it had so many of the recipes and tastes that she had made 50 years ago. They were healthy then as they are now. Now I know how to capture that taste.
The recipes were easy with very few ingredients. The diet is not hard to follow as the food is delicious. There is something to eat from breakfast to snacks. You don't have to be on a diet to enjoy this book.

If you want to learn about the history and benefits of the Mediterranean Diet, this is the book to get. But background information on the diet is only a small part fo the book. The "28 Day Mediterranean Diet Plan" is also a self help guide on how to lose weight. It provides over 40 pages of easy to prepare, tasty recipes. But that's not all. The 28 Day Mediterranean Diet plan also inlcudes a recipe on how to live a healther life. Better yet, the recipes work! I lost 10 pounds in the last month, and generally feel younger.

This book was very informative as well as interesting. It indicates how this specific way of eating is extremely healhful and delicious. Eating this type of diet is very preventative for many diseases, and can also extend your life expectancy. The recipes included are very easy to follow, and delicious, especially when prepared with Ayhan's Famous Dressings! I would highly recommend this book for anyone who is looking to lose weight, or just wants to clean up ther eating habits, and live a healthy lifestyle.

This diet really works! My husband lost 10 pounds in 28 days just like it says! I thought this book was great; it's well organized, easy to follow and full of very helpful information. The recipes are delicious, quick and simple to make and the Ayhan salad dresssing line is outstanding! Plus, this diet plan (unlike so many others) is very healthy and something you can adapt to your every day lifestyle for the long term. I got interested in it because of all the press and research about people in Mediterranean cultures living longer and getting less diseases. It's not just hype and the whole concept makes a lot of sense. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to lose weight or improve their health.
