I read about the diet in the times almost a year ago and have been looking for a great book on it and this was the one. Using the guidelines in this book and from taking a Garcinia Cambogia supplement , I have been able to lose 20 pounds in just the last 3 months and I feel better than ever.
The recipes in the book are absolutely delicious also, and very easy to prepare for a mediocre cook like me.
The author does a great job explaining how to use the Mediterranean diet and that it isn't strictly a diet, but more of a way of life. He also explains in detail the differences between how Americans eat and how people in the Med eat. He demonstrates the benefits of eating a Mediterranean diet, which focuses a lot on fresh fruits and vegetables that are grown locally and are in season.
I learned a lot from this book. I have tried some of the recipes, which have turned out to be very tasty, filling, and very easy to follow. I did enjoy the recipes, but I do wish that this book had more.
This diet isn't what we normally think of because for most Americans "diet" is a four letter word. The Mediterranean Diet is a lifestyle, not a restriction. The choices of healthy fats, smaller but satisfying portions, and fresh, local, seasonal produce cause you to lose weight naturally. Taking most unhealthy fats and some dairy out of your regular diet is also helpful for weight loss.
If you're not looking to lose weight but just want to eat healthy and enjoy your food, this book is for you, too. Taking time to enjoy what goes into your mouth because it's fresh and flavorful is an awesome thing. The book also covers cooking methods so you'll be able to get the most out of the fresh ingredients.
The recipes included are fabulous. I've already tried a couple of them and can't wait to try more. Remember, this book is really about the whole lifestyle that includes the diet as well as attitude and activity. This is a fully comprehensive book and I'm very glad I got it.
On the first page the author says the diet is not about counting calories- well, you end up counting them as part of a weight-loss plan.
I don't normally write reviews because I have not been disappointed by a purchase and I have been an Amazon customer (and a grad student who buys tons of books) for years. I made an exception in this case, however, in order to warn anyone who is seriously considering buying this book
The author used the exact same explanation of the diet in exact same format in both books. Waste of my time.
Chatham, who hails from my hometown of Santa Barbara, California, serves up his well researched chapters in a pleasing, conversational tone that will especially resonate with anyone who has ever said, "Mediterranean cooking? Oh no, I'd never try something that complicated and exotic!" Even a cursory flip through the book reveals the contrary - that the emphasis of the Mediterranean diet is on fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh herbs, whole grains, legumes and nuts, and fresh seafood. In essence, elements you can easily find in your neighborhood grocery store. While I would love to have seen more recipes (the books weighs in at less than 90 pages), its objective is to deliver a concise primer on how and why this diet is an effective one. The takeaway value is that readers can make informed choices in their purchases as well as utilize cooking techniques that even beginners can quickly master.
Why do people in Mediterranean regions tend to enjoy longer life spans and fewer health challenges such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer?Read more ›
