Book Description

Obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer—all diseases that have been scientifically linked to diet—are at an all-time high, and the recent popularity of low-carb, high-fat diets has only made things worse. But there’s a way that’s been successful for millions of people for thousands of years: the Mediterranean diet.

In The Miami Mediterranean Diet, noted Miami cardiologist Michael Ozner updates the traditional Mediterranean diet—clinically proven to reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer and numerous other diseases—with the latest scientific findings in health and nutrition to create a diet that’s easy to follow. With more than 300 delicious recipes, from soups to omelets, from salads to desserts, as well as an abundance of evidence supporting the Mediterranean diet’s incredible health benefits, The Miami Mediterranean Diet shows you how and why to change your life for a longer, healthier, happier life.

Think of this: Greek men have 90% less heart attacks than American men. Yes, I said 90% less. Statistics like this have led scientists to spend more than 20 years studying the Mediterranean diet, Dr. Ozner, a cardiologist based in Miami, summarizes the enormous benefits of this lifestyle in his book. He offers many patient tested (& patient suggested) recipes, all delicious. The basic foods in this diet are pasta, fresh vegetables, beans, whole grains, cold-water fish, nuts, olives, tomatoes, olive oil and red wine. Simple, but rarely followed in America. The Mediterranean diet is rich in benefits, inexpensive and there's an added benefit: weight loss. The book is a winner, easy to read and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book - save your life February 9, 2008
By Lexkief
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Written by an experienced Miami cardiologist, the Miami Mediterranean Diet is an excellent introduction to the lifestyle and recipes of the Mediterranean diet, as filtered through an American lens, which, nevertheless, retains all of the heart-healthy benefits of the original Mediterranean diet.

Far from being just another fad diet, The Mediteranean diet is the only diet clinically proven, for more than four decades now, to reduce the incidence of heart disease, cancer and stroke, and possibly neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease. Dr. Michael Ozner makes the case for moving away from the pro-inflammatory American diet towards the anti-inflammatory Mediterranean diet in order to prevent atherosclerosis, heart disease and other inflammation-related ailments that are all-too common in the West.

The Miami Mediterranean diet features plenty of low-fat, high-fiber, olive-oil-rich, flavor-packed recipes made with fresh fruits and vegetables, fatty fish, lean dairy, nuts, legumes and whole grains. It will help you lose weight and change your lifestyle for the better, for once and for all. This is a diet that anyone can benefit from, whether you are seeking to lose weight, prevent diabetes, reduce allergy or arthritis symptoms, reverse heart disease, or avoid IBS symptoms. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars don't waste your money, where is the mediteranean? September 8, 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Thankfully my cover was damaged so I am returning it. However, I would have returned it anyway. Where in the healthy mediteranean's diet is "low calorie sweetner" and "liquid eqq whites"? This is just a low calorie diet with fish, fruit, veggies and the like which you should eat anyway. It's mostly recipes which is why I was interested. The recipes however feature artifical sweetners (lots of them). I don't see where that fits in traditional mediterranean fare. They are been proven to be dangerous. So, this is really a low calorie, low fat diet with artificial sweetners. You will lose weight but will you really be healthy?

5.0 out of 5 stars Promotes a healthy way of living November 1, 2005
Oils in your diet prevent hardening of the arteries, and helps our skin, hair, and flexibility. This book gives an alternative to salty diets and those which deplete our system rather than energize it. This isn't a diet of depreviation but rather a way to change our palates to a healthier way of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should not be labeled "diet" August 19, 2006
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for a person with any type of heart problems or who wants to lower their risk of heart problems. It is not really geared to losing weight, but to being healthier. It was recommended by my husband's doctor and is great for heart disease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthier Already November 1, 2005
Being half Italian, I love to eat. And not always the healthiest foods. While not overweight, I decided to pick up a copy of Dr. Ozner's book. I've gained immediate results by following the principles and guidelines he so concisely recommends. Now I feel more energized and renewed than I have in years. I commend him for writing a health book that actually gets results without the pain and longing that many diets entail.

"The Miami Mediterranean Diet" (yep, the title suggests a tie to the ever-popular South Beach Diet) goes in depth into explaining the benefits, hows and whys of adhering to a Mediterranean-style diet. Some will really enjoy the great detail in which the book handles this; others will probably skip ahead to the recipes. The book itself is rather dry: no pictures or other graphic details to break up page-after-page of text. I generally loathe such books, but I'll make an exception here because of all the great information that is otherwise included. Nonetheless, a few pictures of finished dishes would have been a real bonus. The book includes over 300 recipes, plenty to keep you from getting bored of repeats as is often the case with other diets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and simple September 24, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We got this book out of the local library, and prepared several recipes from it; they were so good tasting and simple to prepare, we went out and bought a copy! Ingredient lists are short and generic( can be found locally with no trouble) and delicious. Plus, they're healthy! The main dishes are excellent, plus salads are easy to prepare as well. A well deserved 5 star rating.
