Worthwhile for the health advice AND the recipes,
This review is from: The Mediterranean Prescription: Meal Plans and Recipes to Help You Stay Slim and Healthy for the Rest of Your Life (Hardcover)
I bought this book because I wanted to try out a healthier eating style - I wasn't too much for salads and vegetables or fish before.... but the text of the book is well written and very convincing, the recipes are very good and easy enough to make - and to experiment with altering them - and best of all, I feel satisfied when I eat, I've lost 8 lbs in 2 weeks (1/4 of my goal) and no more digestive upsets. My sister just had her gallbladder out for the same symptoms I had just started having and they went away completely. I can't recommend it enough! I bought two other books but this was my favorite for the text part and recipes.
