Nutrition experts for decades have recommended the healthy Mediterranean diet. Dr. Steve Parker incorporates the latest nutrition science breakthroughs in this newly revised second edition of his award-winning Advanced Mediterranean Diet.
Dr. Parker’s weight management plan is highly customizable, depending on sex, weight, and preferred dieting style. In addition to a time-honored portion-controlled diet, Dr. Parker presents the world’s first low-carbohydrate Mediterranean diet: the Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet. It’s a two-for-one deal.
You’ll discover 1) which foods are the healthiest, 2) which carbohydrates are particularly fattening, 3) why you no longer have to worry about dietary total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol, 4) how to lose weight by watching portion sizes or calories, 5) how to lose weight by limiting carbohydrate consumption, 6) which of these two popular dieting methods is optimal for you, and 7) sixty-four easy and delectable recipes.
The traditional Mediterranean diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, fish, olive oil, judicious amounts of wine, with modest portions of meat and poultry. This way of eating is linked to longer lifespan and reduced risk of heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and dementia.
The book includes advice on how to avoid weight regain, instruction on exercise, 64 recipes, and scientific references. All measurements are given in both U.S. customary and metric units.
Also by Dr. Steve Parker . . .
Dr. Parker (M.D.) has created the world’s first low-carbohydrate Mediterranean diet, designed for people with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes. His science-based plan blends the healthy components of the traditional Mediterranean diet with the ease and effectiveness of low-carb eating. Conquer Diabetes and Prediabetes teaches how to lower blood sugars naturally, reduce or eliminate diabetic medications, and lose excess weight if needed.
Type 2 diabetics and prediabetics have lost the ability to process carbohydrates safely. Carbohydrates have become poisonous for them. Carb toxicity too often leads to numb and painful limbs, impaired vision, kidney failure, amputations, cancer, and premature heart attacks, strokes, and death. What’s the first thing you do when you find you’re being poisoned? You stop taking the poison!
Nutrition experts worldwide agree that the Mediterranean diet is the healthiest way of eating for the general public. It prolongs life and reduces rates of heart attack, stroke, cancer, and dementia. The only problem for diabetics is that it provides too many toxic carbohydrates.
Dr. Parker initially recommends a very-low-carb ketogenic diet for 12 to 18 weeks, then teaches the reader how to gradually add more healthy carbohydrates depending on blood sugar and body weight changes.
The book provides recipes, a week of menus, instruction on exercise, discussion of all available diabetic medications, advice on how to avoid weight gain, lists of delicious doctor-approved foods, 71 scientific references, an annotated bibliography, and an index. All measurements are given both in U.S. customary and metric units.
