U.S. News & World Report magazine ranks the Mediterranean Diet No. 1. And almost all nutrition scientists consider a Mediterranean diet to be among the healthiest in the world. There are quite a few Mediterranean diet books on the market - but this is the first Mediterranean Weight Loss Diet book. Go Mediterranean and get healthy and lose weight!
The diet is based on pasta, crunchy Italian and French bread, vegetables, fruit, fish, wine, olive oil, some poultry and limited meat. The book actually contains two diets, a 1500-Calorie version and for even greater
weight loss a 1200-Calorie version.
Most women lose 8 to 16 pounds – depending on whether the 1500 or 1200 Calorie diet is selected.
Most men lose 14 to 24 pounds – depending on whether the 1500 or 1200 Calorie diet is selected.
Smaller adults, older adults and less active adults might lose a bit less and larger adults, younger adults and more active adults often much more.
