If there really was an optimal diet for health and weight loss, wouldn't we already know about it?
Actually, we've known about it for 2000 years.
Obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer - all diseases that have been scientifically linked to diet - are at an all-time high, and the recent popularity of low-carb, high-fat diets has only made things worse. But there's a way to lose weight without sacrificing your health, a way that's been successful for millions of people for thousands of years: the Mediterranean diet.
The healthiest diet on the planet is no mystery; residents of the Mediterranean countries have been eating this way for generations.
In The Miami Mediterranean Diet, noted Miami cardiologist Michael Ozner updates the traditional Mediterranean diet - clinically proven to reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer and numerous other diseases - with the latest scientific findings in health and nutrition to create a diet that's easy to follow.
With more than 300 delicious recipes, from soups to omelets, from salads to desserts, as well as an abundance of evidence supporting the Mediterranean diet's incredible health benefits, The Miami Mediterranean Diet shows you how and why to change your diet for a longer, healthier, happier life.
Following a Mediterranean diet can help you:
- Lower your risk of heart disease and cancer
- Live a longer and healthier life
- Lose weight steadily and keep it off
- Maintain or jumpstart an active lifestyle
- Eat delicious foods that are easy to prepare
