The Mediterranean Diet
This beautifully photographed book is your complete guide to the world's most famous, effective and sustainable diet by one of Australia's leading researchers.
The Mediterranean Diet is the diet on which others are based. Its positive health effects have been rigorously tested for more than 60 years, and the results are clear. The diet has been proven to prevent heart disease and diabetes, help with weight management, slow the progress of Alzheimer's and promote longevity. Dr Catherine Itsiopoulos has spent her working life researching the diet. Drawing on the food traditions of her Greek heritage, Dr Itsiopoulos provides 80 delicious recipes, eating plans and nutritional advice, as well as sharing the evidence as to why this diet is the gold standard of healthy eating. Sustainable, satisfying and suitable for the whole family, this is a diet for life, one that celebrates the pleasures of food as much as it promotes long-term good health and wellbeing.
