Lose Weight, Prevent Heart Disease, and More! (A Mediterranean Diet Cookbook)
A fresh approach to the Mediterranean diet that focuses on low-glycemic foods that benefit the heart, brain, gut, and microbiome
The Mediterranean diet is associated with a long list of amazing health benefits and improved longevity. As the science shows, following this diet can reduce your risk for heart disease, dementia and memory loss, and cancer, among other chronic health conditions. It can also be used as a weight loss program, and has been shown to be as effective for weight loss as low-carb, low-fat, and Paleo diets. Additionally, there are multiple gastrointestinal benefits from eating Mediterranean foods. Best of all, Mediterranean food is delicious! The recent US News and World Report's annual "Best Diets" report ranked the Mediterranean diet as the #1 overall diet on the planet--praise that is well-deserved and that we expect will be repeated in next year's report, perfectly timed to coincide with the publication of this book.
The Mediterranean Method will include guidelines for following Dr. Masley's low-glycemic approach to the Mediterranean diet (a truly healthy way to eat Mediterranean, not the popularized version we've come to know in the United States, which too closely resembles the Standard American Diet), along with 50 delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes, and an accompanying 16-page photo insert featuring beautiful food photography.
