It has been known for a long time that people who live in Mediterranean countries, and who eat a diet that gets its fat mainly from olive oil and features a variety of fruits and vegetables, have lower rates of heart disease and are generally slimmer than people who live in Northern Europe, where the diet features foods with more animal fat. You can build your diet from a base of grains, use olive oil for cooking, enjoy a variety of vegetables every day, and lower your salt intake on a Mediterranean diet--while eating delicious foods and lowering your risk for heart disease. THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET provides the nutritional information and guidelines that introduce you to the Mediterranean cuisine and lifestyle. With recipes and a 7-day program to get you started, this book provides an excellent introduction to losing weight and living right the Mediterranean way.
