Is it really possible that eating more fat is the key to better health? It depends on the fat, according to Dr. Artemis Simopoulos. The Omega Plan shows, in great detail, the difference between omega-3 fats, those found in fish and some green vegetables, and omega-6 fats, which are found in most meats and vegetable oils. The former have heart-protective and cancer-preventive properties; the latter, she writes, cause obesity, heart disease, cancer, depression, and a host of other ills. Omega-3 fats are at the heart of her plan, along with ample servings of fruits and vegetables. Unlike diets based on deprivation, Simopoulos offers some fairly lush food choices, including an ounce of cheese every day. Best of all, The Omega Plan is bursting with so much useful information about food shopping and preparation that you'll be able to use its advice the second you put the book down. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"This is the most solidly-based nutritional program currently available. The information is easily understandable, not obscured by technical jargon. And the recipes produce dishes that actually taste good! The Omega Plan is a major step forward for readers concerned with their own health."'S. BOYD EATON, MD, author of The Paleolithic Prescription andclinical associate professor of radiology, Emory University School of Medicine"I'm not a betting woman, but if I were, I'd put my money on Dr. Artemis Simopoulos as most likely to be remembered as the great nutritional/geneticist breakthrough genius of our age. For those of us 'at sea' between the high carb diets that may point us toward overweight and diabetesand the high protein/high fat diets that may be anathema to our heartshere, at last, is good sense and great eating, based on serious science." -- BARBARA SEAMAN, author of The Doctor's Case Against the Pill, Co-founder, National Women's Health Network and Contributing Editor, Ms. magazine.
Of all the diets this is the one most apt to make most Americans feel better, live longer and stay healthier. Dr. Simopoulos absolutely knows what she is talking about. The book is full of gems of dietary wisdom and practical advice. -- -Jean Carper, USA Weekend columnist and bestselling author of Miracle Cures, Stop Aging Now, and Food-Your Miracle Medicine. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Not saying these foods aren't healthy, but not what I was looking for. I truly wanted their menus from years ago, with their meal plans. If you haven't dug into this area than you might like this book.
I feel better than I ever have! This diet is remarkable and not only that, the food is great! I have lost weight, toned up, watched my blood pressure go down, and all the while have been eating the best food of my life.
The book explains the benefits of eating a balanced diet with plenty of Omega-3 fatty acids. It also provides some of the most tasty recipes found anywhere. I have had so much fun sharing this book with friends and loved ones. As a result, often times when I am over at a friend's house for dinner, I am treated with a great Omega Diet meal!
If you want to be on a lifetime plan that will make you (and your taste buds) feel great, buy this book!
