Slimmer The New Mediterranean Way to Lose Weight Review
I am really enjoying this weight loss book and cookbook because I’ve already adopted a similar lifestyle with my existing diet. The author’s meal plans and recipes include fresh fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy products, whole grains, low-fat protein sources, olive oil and even an occasional glass of wine.
Slimmer’s three-cycle and richly varied meal plan doesn’t restrict carbs, sugars or fats. My days of restricting carbs are over. Those low carb diets never worked for me. In fact, with recipes that I’ve posted, like low-carb scones to Paleo Pumpkin muffins to Turkey, Bean and Vegetable Chili, you could say my diet has evolved right in front of your eyes.
This diet plan does not enforce calorie counting. I am a little leery to stop counting my PointsPlus (I’ve lost nearly 20 lbs.) I find that I need that structure and accountability or else I tend to overeat. I would have liked it if the recipes included the nutritional breakdown, including calories.
The book has about 80 healthy recipes like Summer Vegetable Risotto with Chicken, Summer Pasta Alfredo, and Mediterranean Chickpea Salad that I look forward to trying. These recipes have easy-to-find, lighter ingredients and sound flavorful and delicious.
Most impressive to me is the author’s 110 pound weight loss and maintenance with his tailored fat burning Mediterranean Diet. In the book he also focuses on simple lifestyle and lifelong healthy habits. This makes perfect sense as the key to weight loss and maintenance is a lifestyle change.
About Slimmer The New Mediterranean Way to Lose Weight
Released for the first time in America: Join the hundreds of thousands who have lost weight and kept it off for good with this bestselling diet book from the Mediterranean, featuring over 80 delicious, fat-burning, easy-to-make recipes.
In just one year, Harry Papas gained 110 pounds. Then he lost it all for life. Papas, a certified dietician in Greece, shed the pounds by creating a simple yet revolutionary nutrition plan: a delicious, fat-burning Mediterranean diet coupled with the self-awareness he needed to combat the triggers that contributed to his weight gain.
Unlike other diets, Slimmer’s three-cycle, richly varied meal plan doesn’t restrict you from enjoying carbs, sugars, or fats, and it doesn’t enforce calorie counting. Rather, the nine-week program is designed to help you stay slim while actually enjoying what you eat, encouraging you to adopt a simpler lifestyle and lifelong healthy habits. This easy-to-follow plan will allow you to get rid of those unwanted pounds with incredibly flavorful and satisfying meals, full of sustaining, wholesome foods — such as fresh fruits and vegetables, olive oil, and Greek yogurt — that have been enjoyed for centuries by those in the Mediterranean, as well as by celebrities visiting Papas’ family restaurant in Greece.
Packed with recipes and practical nutritional advice, Slimmer also helps you understand why you gained weight and provides the psychological support and encouragement you need to successfully lose weight and permanently retain the loss.
