Don't be misled by the term "Mediterranean diet," which many people associate with white-flour pizza, pasta and bread or risotto, blood-sugar boosting foods that diabetics should avoid like the plague (and which, regrettably, have become common staples in most modern-day Mediterranean countries and restaurants...).
Instead, the author highlights the many benefits of the *pre-industrial* Mediterranean diet, which is characterized by unprocessed whole foods: vegetables, fish, meat and eggs, olive oil, nuts and seeds, spices, herbs and red wine. (Fruits, legumes, yogurt and other dairy products and whole grains are restricted initially but allowed in moderate amounts later-on.)
Indeed, contrary to popular belief, traditional Mediterranean food was not particularly "low-fat" and contained a wide variety of animal fats and protein. (As discussed in this article: [...]). This is why it's possible to eat a Mediterranean diet while nonetheless avoiding the sugars and refined carbs that increase our risk of diabetes, heart disease, obesity and cancer, to name but a few.
In terms that are easy to understand for non-specialist readers, this book provides an in-depth explanation of the mechanics of blood-sugar balance, weight loss and exercise, and proposes easy ways to improve blood-sugar control and lose weight through low-carb or very low-carb (ketogenic) eating habits.Read more ›
Favorite quote: "Rank-and-file physicians, dietitians, and nutritionsts put blind faith in their instructors, scientific journal editors, and time-honored and tenured 'thought leaders.' Our unquestioning faith has hurt people with diabetes and prediabetes."
