on the diet are breads and pasta, so if you are a fan of carbs, this one may be a bit difficult for you. It does promote eating more fruits and vegetables, avoiding bad fats like Omega 6 fats, and increasing the amount of healthy fat in your diet. Basically,
the book is promoting the Mediterranean Diet in a little different way, which has been proven effective, at least when combined with exercise. So far, so good, but we would have liked to have seen a few more studies into the benefits of combining
