Mediterranean Diet by Catherine Itsiopoulos
Book DescriptionThe Mediterranean Diet is one of the most respected and prescribed diets in the world. Its positive health effects have been rigorously tested for more than 60 years, and the results are incontrovertible. The diet is as effective as drugs in treating heart disease and diabetes, and can prevent both conditions. It aids weight loss, promotes longevity and slows the progress of Alzheimer's. Dr Catherine Itsiopoulos has spent her working life researching the diet. In her first book for a general audience, she offers an accessible and scientifically proven version of the diet specifically for Australians. Drawing on the food traditions of her Greek heritage, Dr Itsiopoulos gives us 80 beautifully photographed recipes, eating plans and nutritional advice, as well as sharing the evidence as to why this remains the world's most effective diet for long-term health outcomes and weight management. The key components of the diet are: olive oil, leafy greens, eggs, fruit and nuts, legumes, fermented dairy products (yoghurt and fetta), seafood, a small amount of red meat and a minuscule amount of sugar.
