Having just been prescribed by Dr.'s to start this "lifestyle", I bought this book to help me with meal plans, grocery lists, etc. It is a good book from that standpoint. The recipes are OK and pretty easy for the most part. You might want to purchase another Mediterranean Diet book in conjunction with this one. I purchased "The Mediterranean Prescription". Having both books provides me with plenty of recipes and ideas for future meals.

If you know nothing about the Mediterranean diet, then this book does a pretty good job explaining it. And the recipes are great! However, if you already know the advantages of the diet, fully half of the book is spent on the explanation, which means fewer great recipes. One thing I did like is the section with sample menus.

You can't argue with success and there are entire countries of people already dining on the Mediterranean Diet who have a zest for life and energy level that is missing from far too many in America.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to The Mediterranean Diet is a simple and comprehensive guide to incorporating this healthy yet delicious way of dining into everyday meals. Authors Tessmer and Green do an excellent job in the first two-thirds of the book explaining how this style of eating works and the fabuluous foods that are essential parts of The Mediterranean Diet such as olive oil, walnuts, and seasonal fruits and vegetables. The last one-third offers a nice array of easy to prepare recipes in every category, including desserts.

"The Complete Idiot's Guide to The Mediterranean Diet" is an easy guide to making your meals throughout 2011 more fun, flavorful and healthy!

This book is an excellent source of information on the Mediterranean Diet. The book provides a succinct yet thorough review of what the diet is, what component foods make it up, why it is healthy and how you can start to incorporate it into your own diet. The recipes provided in the last section of the book are easy to follow and provide a variety of delicious meals. Highly recommended!

I purchased this book after my doctor recommended the Mediterranean diet to help me reduce my cholesterol. The book is well organized and easy to read. The information is presented in a straight forward fashion. I've only tried a few of the recipes so far. The ones I have tried were great and there are many more that I can't wait to try. If there is one negative for me, it is that there are no photos with the recipes, but I have only missed them a little.

I would like to eat a primarily Mediterranean diet, and the recipes in the book are tasty, that's for sure. But it always annoys me a little when I read about the supposed reliance on whole grains and low fat dairy in the traditional Mediterranean diet. I've been traveling all over the Mediterranean since the 1950's, and the bread is white. Also pasta and rice. Yes, bulgur and tabbouleh are whole grain wheat, and found in many countries, but the couscous is white semolina. The book lists couscous as a whole grain. I didn't observe much milk drinking around the Med, but virtually all the cheese and most yogurt are full-fat.

In the traditional sense of the word, this isn't really a "diet". It doesn't feel like one, anyway. The recipes at the end are nice, but the book teaches you to adapt a lot of what you already cook into the Mediterranean way of eating. For example, substituting olive oil or canola oil for butter, choosing whole grains instead of processed carbs, etc. I never thought I could eat "healthy" because I don't like brown rice, broccoli, or whole wheat bread. Now, I've learned that I DO like whole grain couscous, whole grain orzo, fruit smoothies, tons of veggies, and whole grain oat bread. One of the first thing the book teaches you is to start with fruits and veggies, lean meats you do like and build on that. The other thing I've done is almost completely given up beef. I will have it every couple of weeks (nice juicy steak...ummmm) but normally I'll have grilled chicken or salmon or just a meal brimming with veggies and a delicious bean soup. I've lost 5 pounds and a couple of inches in my belly (in 6 weeks) and I have no idea how because I'm always full, eating this way!!
