A Whole-Foods Diet for the Whole Planet
Dr. Masley’s program will teach you which foods are part of the Mediterranean diet and which to eat to help you achieve your health and weight goals. You will also discover why the Spaniards have the longest lifespan on the planet, why the French are slimmer than Americans, and why Italians are able to eat pasta often without gaining weight. With this program, you will break eating habits based upon outdated myths and discover how often to eat certain foods, ideal serving sizes and portions, and more. People who follow the Mediterranean diet have the longest life span and best health on the planet – whether you live in Europe, the United States, or elsewhere, the closer you adhere to this lifestyle, the longer you will live and the less disease you will have.

I give it a 4/5 because the book is repetitive. I wonder if he did this under the assumption that people would only read one chapter before diving in.
As another reviewer mentioned, this book isn’t a cookbook; it’s 3/4 method and explanation. This isn’t a bad thing- it allows you to understand which of your already-cherished recipes are going to work for the diet plan.
It’s been about 3 weeks since I started “semi” following the diet, and I have to say I am enjoying it. It is so much more relaxed than Keto, but still makes you think critically about the kind of food you are eating. I am not completely adhering to every bit of information right now, but have implemented his advice to at least 2/3 of the meals I am eating. I feel good!
I would say, yes: but the book if you are looking for a practical diet plan that is backed by science and rational thought. I would not say it is gorgeous, flowing prose that will captivate your soul, but the information is easy to digest (pun intended).
