The Pioppi Diet
The 21-Day Anti-Diabetes Lifestyle Plan as followed by Tom Watson, author of Downsizing
Lose weight and live longer, happier and healthier whilst eating the food you love, with this revolutionary new Italian approach to diet and lifestyle
A diet that allows red wine, chocolate and the most delicious Italian food you can imagine? The Pioppi Plan offers just that, but so much more - lose weight, de-stress and live healthier and longer with this revolutionary new programme. Pioppi itself, a small Italian village which is home to the healthiest, longest-living people in the world, offers secrets that have never before been shared: until now.
Based on five years of research and drawing on over 100 studies on Pioppi, Dr Aseem Malhotra, a trained cardiologist, has created a plan which is designed to provide readers with the joy and wellbeing of a Mediterranean lifestyle by making small 'marginal gains' over a 21-day period. Each little change the book encourages you to make will add up to weight lost and years gained, across eight key areas: diet, movement, sleep, stress management, sunshine, exercise, posture and social interaction. This isn't a diet or lifestyle which requires saying 'no' to the things you love, nor exercising for hours upon end, but rather making simple, achievable and long-lasting changes.
