This is the only book on food and eating that I've ever been able to finish, so I can't help but give it a good rating. I learned a lot about many types of foods and their nutrients and other ingredients.

This book is a sensible, affordable approach to a healthy lifestyle, focusing mainly on food, but including other vital factors, such as exercise and other ways to live more fully and healthfully throughout the day. The authors believe that the keys to good eating are variety and moderation and
A good exploration of what the traditional Mediterranean diet looked like. It's not a diet in the sense of losing weight, it's a diet in the sense of changing eating habits. Written by a registered dietitian, she explains in great detail what parts of which foods are good for you.

This is the way I would eat in a perfect world - fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables and whole grains, with just a bit of lean meat. Cutting out most fatty meats and high-fat cheeses, and getting most of my fat f

This book helped confirmed what I have read from other sources that the Mediterranean have the healthiest and most varied diet. Of course, climate and lifestyle factor in quite a bit. I think the Mediterranean have a diet that is healthy and varied compared to the Japanese diets that I have read about. The Mediterranean course of nutrition provides enough variety that most people could follow it easily.

I didn't look at this as a diet book, merely an interesting book about getting back to basics for preparing food. Illustrates the difference between Mediterranean diets and American diets. People in the Mediterranean have one of the healthiest diets, using fresh ingredients and very little prepared foods. Includes some recipes and sample menus and talks about the importance of exercise too.

so far this book has changed the way I think about eating, I have come to love eating everything fresh and not as much cheese or meat, and a lot more fish, to me it is not a diet, but a change of lifestyle, I feel so much better and have been able to maintain my happiest weight!

This is a really good book at telling you the health benefits of eating the Mediterranean Diet. It does not tell you a lot about dieting but does give you excellent reasons to eat the various items of the Mediterranean way of eating. It has some really good recipes and good information

I read this book, not because I am on a 'diet' in the sense of wanting to lose weight, but out of interest for eating and living in a more healthy manner. I love that this book addresses all aspects of that--diet, lifestyle, community, etc. Lots of menus too!
