I will be completely honest, I've been overweight my entire life. I have tried a lot of different types of diets with minimal success and huge weight gain after leaving the diet. The first diet that has actually helped me stick to a healthy eating plan was the mediterranean diet.

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.

I've found it so frustrating trying to find a diet that works and that I can stick to. I've found time after time that diets just don't work for me and leave me frustrated. I have heard a lot about Mediterranean diets and decided to read more about it. I found this book to be very informative.

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 book is a great find if you want to savor your food instead of always eating junk food on the run. Our culture sometimes makes it difficult to make our meals worthwhile events - except on holidays, of course, where we overeat and walk away miserable for the next few hours.

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.

I have always enjoyed eating Mediterranean food, but I never imagined myself cooking it. I ran across this cookbook from a recommendation from a friend. The food you will be able to make by using this cookbook is simply deee-liiii-cious!! It's a great way to eat healthy, but also quality and tasty food. I wouldn't say I am the best cook, but this cookbook makes it easy for me to follow along and come up with some great dishes. I highly recommend!

I was disappointed when the book arrived. It is written on a very basic level and is extremely repetitive. The print is very large and each skimpy chapter is summed up at the end, in case you forgot the previous 5-6 pages. Research on the diet is briefly mentioned with no supporting citations, so you are on your own to look for research supporting the author's claims.

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

Bought this book along with the Mediterranean Diet for Beginners. Not just disappointed, i was annoyed. First, i find any book that includes recipes but does NOT have a recipe index useless. If i have brocolli i want to turn to the back of a cookbook and frind recipes for broccoli, not read the entire table of contents hoping to find a broccoli recipe.

The author used the exact same explanation of the diet in exact same format in both books. Waste of my time.

My former mother-in-law was an enthusiastic collector of cookbooks. The best ones, she always said, were those that were written with such passion and clarity that "you could practically smell the flavors right off the page." That said, she would have applauded the content of The Mediterranean Diet - a text that so advocates the marriage of healthy eating and a physically active lifestyle that you can practically feel the warmth of Greek sunlight on your face, taste the spray of water from a passing Italian yacht and feel an inexplicable urge to go grab some fresh figs off a tree in Spain and eat them right on the spot.

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?
