Publisher's Summary

Are you burned out on your current dietary routine? Do you feel that you could use just a little bit of pep in your step that your daily double espresso shots at Starbucks are failing to provide? Well, go ahead and put down the heavily caffeinated coffees and energy drinks because the Mediterranean diet can reinvigorate your whole mind and body in ways that even the best cappuccino never could!

This diet takes a holistic approach toward cleansing and revamping the body's natural propensity for weight loss, health, and stamina. People have often admired the residents of the Mediterranean for their health and longevity. Images of the old man in southern Italy drinking red wine and carrying on like a teenager might come to mind. Or of the woman in Greece who after a simple lunch of rice and fish is able to till the fields all day long!

These are some common tropes to be sure, but they are tropes with truth attached to their overused thematic imagery. For many years it has been well known that the countries along the Mediterranean have had quite a stranglehold on health. The longer life expectancies and fewer visits to the emergency room are testament to this fact.

So for the rest of us living in nations that have obesity rates, and related illnesses skyrocketing through the roof, we would be smart to follow the lead of these communities of the Mediterranean. This book provides you with a clear and concise 30 day plan to do just that. With a comprehensive list of recipes that cover breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between this diet will have you off to a great start before you even begin!

In this book you will learn how you can:

  • Develop a clear meal plan regimen
  • Use fresh ingredients
  • Make healthy meals

Great resource for everyone

All the meals have connections to the recipes. The day's meal is spelled out. I lost 8 pounds in the one month I have been practicing it. Instructions are not difficult, but do require prep time. Lots of taste in all the dishes and very simple to follow.

The benefits of being fet

The recipes are tasty, some recipes require more prep than others, there are leftovers for next day lunch meals, I don’t feel stripped of food and overall like the new healthy options, this is delivering. Highly recommended
