don't waste your money, where is the mediteranean? Sep 8, 2008
Thankfully my cover was damaged so I am returning it. However, I would have returned it anyway. Where in the healthy mediteranean's diet is "low calorie sweetner" and "liquid eqq whites"? This is just a low calorie diet with fish, fruit, veggies and the like which you should eat anyway. It's mostly recipes which is why I was interested. The recipes however feature artifical sweetners (lots of them). I don't see where that fits in traditional mediterranean fare. They are been proven to be dangerous. So, this is really a low calorie, low fat diet with artificial sweetners. You will lose weight but will you really be healthy?

Written by an experienced Miami cardiologist, the Miami Mediterranean Diet is an excellent introduction to the lifestyle and recipes of the Mediterranean diet, as filtered through an American lens, which, nevertheless, retains all of the heart-healthy benefits of the original Mediterranean diet.
Far from being just another fad diet, The Mediteranean diet is the only diet clinically proven, for more than four decades now, to reduce the incidence of heart disease, cancer and stroke, and possibly neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease. Dr. Michael Ozner makes the case for moving away from the pro-inflammatory American diet towards the anti-inflammatory Mediterranean diet in order to prevent atherosclerosis, heart disease and other inflammation-related ailments that are all-too common in the West.
The Miami Mediterranean diet features plenty of low-fat, high-fiber, olive-oil-rich, flavor-packed recipes made with fresh fruits and vegetables, fatty fish, lean dairy, nuts, legumes and whole grains. It will help you lose weight and change your lifestyle for the better, for once and for all. This is a diet that anyone can benefit from, whether you are seeking to lose weight, prevent diabetes, reduce allergy or arthritis symptoms, reverse heart disease, or avoid IBS symptoms. Highly recommended.
