Mediterranean Diet E-Book Shows How To Lose Weight For Good For Free
According to the National Board For the Preservation of Italian Healthy Eating Traditions president, Dr. Enrico Forte, diets and dieting have been a source of confusion among the general population increasingly over the past decade, thus Dr. Forte has released the free online e-book "The Definitive Guide to the Mediterranean Diet" and diet planner.
Mediterranean Diet: It is the world's most healthful diet
The contents of the e-book include information about healthful eating and cooking healthful meals, how to lose weight effectively and permanently, low fat recipes, and other dieting queries posed by the subscribers who signed up between 2004-2009.
"The Mediterranean Diet involves simple changes to ensure a longer and healthier life without sacrificing all the good things in the process," says Dr. Forte. "It is the world's most healthful diet."
"The advantage of the Mediterranean Diet as opposed to other diets is that it is not a fad diet. Nor, however, is it a way to lose weight fast. It is a way to integrate a variety of healthier foods into your diet, and in doing so, losing excess weight gradually but permanently."
"It also works as a diet to lower blood pressure."
The National Board for Preserving the Italian Healthy Eating Traditions was established six years ago in Italy to encourage healthy eating, prevent and combat obesity and diseases. The group publishes a web site designed to educate everyone, including those who work in the health and nutrition industries, about healthful eating habits. The site is approved by HONCode, which certifies its authority and trustworthiness as a source of information in the medical and health related fields.
"The Definitive Guide to the Mediterranean Diet" provides information about the basis of the diet, tasty recipes for one week, and access to a range of online resources available for download, including an Excel spreadsheet for tracking progress.
Foods used in the Mediterranean Diet recipes are rich in anti-oxidants (tomatoes, kiwis, strawberries, and red wine), protein (whole grains, yogurt, nuts, and cheese), and extra virgin olive oil, for which the Mediterranean area is known worldwide.
The Mediterranean Diet meal plan also includes calorie-controlled portions and at the end, a breakdown as to the benefits each of the food utilized in the recipes.
Dr. Forte is confident that millions around the world can benefit from the knowledge he is providing. Nevertheless he is careful to emphasize that this information is not designed to replace the relationship between a person and their physician, rather to support it. He is convinced that poor education of dietary requirements, is the cause of today's increased obesity in the developed world, and that consuming low cholesterol Mediterranean Diet recipes, such as those provided for free on the web site can contribute significantly to reducing this problem.
"The Mediterranean Diet e-book is available free as everyone deserves to enjoy the quality of life and healthy weight balance that the low fat diet plan of the Mediterranean Diet provides," declares Dr. Forte. "We at the National Board For the Preservation of Italian Healthy Eating Traditions are very happy to be the ones to provide it free of charge."
