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 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.
This book makes the mediterranean diet seem tasty and healthy. Most of the book is background on the specifics of why this diet is good for you. It sometimes get medical but it is all good information. There aren't many recipes but it is still good. You could probably read the first 50 pages and get everything she is trying to say - the rest of the book just elaborates.
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!
