Publisher's Summary

Why people living in Mediterranean countries have a lower risk of suffering from heart disease or inflammation, by eating commonly and drinking red wine without deprivations?

Are you sure that the Mediterranean diet is just a diet?

The most commonly understood version of the Mediterranean diet was presented by Walter Willett and collaborators of Harvard University's School of Public Health since 1995.

The Mediterranean diet is based on a paradox:

WHY people living in Mediterranean countries eat relatively high amounts of fat and they have far lower incidences of cardiovascular disease than in countries like the United States where similar levels of fat consumption are found?

This phenomenon is also known as the French Paradox!

By 2012, the Mediterranean diet has been promoted by some authors as a diet for losing weight and living longer, and the research activity remained high with positive outcomes reported for various disease conditions.

Those are some pretty impressive statistics that are enough for many people to attempt a Mediterranean diet.
 

  • In a study published in The Lancet: Diabetes and Endocrinology, researchers demonstrated that this diet controls weight sustainably and safely.
  • In a four-year study conducted on more than 400 participants, who followed a Mediterranean diet, 52% showed lower risk in relation to type 2 diabetes. This result was based on food control without the involvement of any exercise.
  • The chance of developing breast cancer is also 68 percent less in Mediterranean countries.
  • The research analysis posted in the journal of Molecular Psychiatry found that 33 percent of people are at lower risk for depression when following a Mediterranean diet (Lassale et al., 2018). 

While certain studies help to showcase the advantages of the Mediterranean diet, there are millions that live in the Mediterranean who are proof that this diet works best. Longer lives are lived, more fulfilling experiences occur, and overall, the people of the Mediterranean have a great quality of life.

Those that have tried living by the Mediterranean diet usually find their overall health improving in ways they never thought possible.

After listening to this book, with no prior knowledge of a Mediterranean diet, you will be able to:

  • How to follow the Mediterranean diet, even if you are a busy person. 
  • How to prepare delicious recipes in 20 minutes.
  • One of the oldest most recognized diet program.

  • And much more

There are people who live on the Mediterranean diet without even knowing that it’s a type of diet. For them, it’s just their way of life.

After listening to this book, I believe you will get to that same place as well!
