I did a Google search for "low carb mediterranean diet" and came across Dr. Parker's web site. His site has downloadable pdfs of all the allowed foods, and even a printable food log. His approach seems VERY healthy and even though it is ketogenic, which is a little lower carb than I usually go (Dukan Diet has been my favorite so far mainly because it is so simple and easy). I decided to try it and bought the Kindle Version of the book.
The book is really great -- it goes into much more detail than his web site, and offers a whole week's worth of menus with recipes, all of which are VERY easy -- and he offers a lot of simple ideas for following the diet, which is EXACTLY what I was looking for! I work full-time and do not have a lot of time to spare cooking lots of complicated low carb recipes, and his book has lots of great ideas using very few, inexpensive ingredients, many of which I already had on hand, and all of which I'm already familiar with from low carbing, and which are easily obtained at my local supermarket. KMD seemed like a smart option, a quick trip to the store and I'm ready to start! I'm making the chicken salad recipe now so I can have it for lunches at work next week!
I started this diet on Tuesday, 9/9/2014 directly after reading this book and visiting his website, also in conjunction with this plan, I went onto www.keto-calculator.ankerl.com and found out what ratio of Fats/Proteins/Carbs to take in based on: height/weight/body mass index/lean body mass index, and I got my numbers/graphs right then and there, without signing up for anything. It's very helpful to follow and I keep a food journal.
Since Tuesday: I've lost a pound of pure fat per day, I've been eating almost 2200cal. (mostly Fats:EVOO/Avocado),I been drinking a gallon and half of water, I take a multivitamin/extra magneseum/folic acid/vitamin C. If I feel dehydrated, I lick some pink sea salt. I also have been eating Chia Pudding drenched in Unsweetened Almond/Some Half&Half it has lots of fiber so I don't get constipated on this diet, really helps! My ratio is 70% Fat/ 20-25% Protein/5-10% Carbs.
I finally understand why my body wasn't losing fat, anything, even small, that got converted to glucose was preventing my body from breaking down my fat stores. I can also breath through both my nostrils again and I have more energy as a result!! I like this particular Ketogenic diet because it's more heart healthy too!
So happy I found this book/diet!!
