Summary

Have you struggled to lose weight or just want to become healthier and improve your life?

There are countless diets out there claiming to help people lose weight, gain the body of their dreams, and attain health. The truth is that these diets are simple fads with little science to back them up. Fad diets such as these have people giving up fats, carbs, and a number of other foods or entire food groups. The Western world has been taught that being on a diet means restricting oneself.

However, life doesn’t have to be this way. In fact, it shouldn’t be this way. The Mediterranean diet is an answer to these problems. While it may be called a diet, it is an entire lifestyle. Unlike fad diets, which have only been around for a short time, the Mediterranean diet is the eating style people throughout Mediterranean countries have lived on for centuries. This lifestyle has been tested and proven through time to be effective and maintainable. Not only that, but numerous studies have been conducted on this way of eating - all of which have found it to be beneficial.

While other books may try to sell you a quick scheme to lose weight, the Mediterranean diet doesn’t make false promises. You may not lose weight as quickly as you would with a crash or fad diet, but the weight you lose on the Mediterranean diet will stay off unlike with those other ones. All too often, after quitting an un-maintainable crash diet, a person gains back more weight than they lost and are only left with an added five pounds and a damaged metabolism. The same is not true of the Mediterranean diet. Over time, you will slowly achieve the weight loss you hope for - but more importantly, you will gain improved health.

Through this audiobook, you will learn how to easily follow the Mediterranean diet to successfully reach your goals. You can learn the science and history behind the Mediterranean diet in an easy-to-understand manner, gaining helpful insight into this centuries-long lifestyle.

You will find:

  • The deep and varied history of the Mediterranean diet.
  • How Dr. Keys developed the Mediterranean diet plan for better health.
  • An in-depth look into the science behind the Mediterranean diet and why it works so well.
  • The many health benefits of going Mediterranean—including weight loss, heart health, reduced cancer risk, and more.
  • How you can start your weight loss journey on the Mediterranean diet.

This is a good book! I rarely buy mediterranean diet cookbooks now because there is so much available on the internet, but this book is worth the purchase. I just received mine yesterday and stayed up late reading it.

I love it book

The Mediterranean Diet isn't about cutting out certain foods or counting calories. It's a more holistic approach to healthy, happy living through diet, exercise, and communal dining based on traditions from the Mediterranean region.

There is so much more to this book than recipes.

I like this book, if you buy this wonderful cookbook, I highly recommend the on-line version. All the meals have links to the recipes. The day's meal is clearly spelled out. Recipes are not hard, but do require prep time. Lots of flavor in all the dishes and very easy to follow.

MY NEW MEAL PREP PAL! I LOVE IT!

I was extremely surprised by the value of this book for the price! I was just expecting a cookbook with a couple weeks worth of meals but no.. it explains the what, why and how of the Mediterranean diet! There are a lot of recipes for every meal, including Mediterranean Diet for Beginners! These are also all perfect for people who like to meal prep. A lot of the recipes make quite a bit of servings so it was perfect for me! This is an awesome book especially for the value!!I LOVE THIS!!!

Super book

The book has been very helpful starting a healthier lifestyle. It contains daily recipes for meals and snacks that can be exchanged for other recipes in the book and an exercise section. I have started the plan this week, and I have found the recipes to be filling, and I feel great. Also, each recipe has nutritional information. Thank you for a great book to improve my overall health.
