I have always been interested in the Mediterranean way of eating and this book offered detailed menu plans and recipes! What a healthy way to eat each day! One person found this helpful. It great to find some thing that says "here I am, and the writer shares his own success. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is alot of stuff we already know, but it also has quite of things that were new to me. I love greek and this book was a must for me.
I hope I'd known before that there's an exact plan to follow with dishes and recipes and that he recomends low fat dairy and "foods" like light Jell-O. Nothing else than an overly processed product full of chemicals. And the low fat cereal bar which is considered, in a recent study, like any other dessert because of the sugars in it? The only pro is: I'm sending this awful book back. I've been on the "Slimmer Plan" now for about 3 weeks. I've lost 6 pounds with 6 more to go and my husband has lost 10 he wants to lose a few more as well.
It's a terrific program and at heart, the Slimmer plan is a program of eating healthy for life. I think it would be great no matter how much weight you have to lose. The author's story is very inspiring. He personally went from pounds on this plan to and looks great - pictures of him are on the book's web site.

This has been a top-selling book in Greece and Europe over the last several years and I see why. I highly recommend it.
The meals and recipes in this book are really great. In fact, I would recommend this book to anyone just as a cookbook. The recipes are simple and awesome. They were all easy to make. For example, the dinners for the first week are: I do wish there were a few more pictures but all the dishes did turn out looking good.
I also liked that the menu plans have food with healthy carbs, which, at least for us, makes it much easier to stick to. Another example with carbs is breakfast - a typical breakfast is milk, whole grain cereal, a slice of whole wheat bread, an orange and one ounce of cheese. The recipes required mostly simple, easy ingredients consistent with a Mediterranean diet - chicken, fish, salad, etc.
A few recipes really represented a new way of cooking for me that I'd never thought of, for example, you use pita bread as the base of a pizza for dinner. It is delicious and easy, and I don't think I'll be buying expensive pre-made pizza crusts again.
Another example is that you use Greek yogurt in the Spaghetti Bolognese in place of cream. It tasted and looked great. Sometimes real cream in Bolognese sauce has a heavy, coated feel, but using Greek yogurt is a much better approach. I'll add it to all our Bolognese in the future. There are also a lot of snacks on the Slimmer plan. You are also supposed to eat a mid-morning snack, mid-afternoon snack and bedtime snack.
It is hard to eat that many snacks! I was suspicious of the bedtime snack as I thought you shouldn't eat after 7 pm but I really think it helped reduce any cravings and hungriness. I have not been hungry at all on this plan. And there is Greek yogurt, as a snack choice and in some recipes. I'd never had it before, but it is really thick yogurt and very filling. With few exceptions, our two kids liked the food a lot, especially the fish and pizza. They did not like the mac and cheese!

They like the kind of mac and cheese that comes "in a box" I have been on weight watchers after my second child was born and found it really effective, but after a while got tired of keeping up with the points. The Slimmer plan feels more like a plan of eating healthy for life, especially as there is no calorie counting and no strict portion control. Most of the recipes made more than I could eat. The beginning of the book contains a lengthy chapter about the science behind the book, and how the plan is specifically designed to increase metabolism and burn fat through the inclusion of specific foods into the plan and the recipes.
These foods include, among others, low-fat dairy, lemon and vinegar very interesting discussion of how inclusion of acidic foods at every meal burns fat , whole grains yay - it is not low carb , lean protein, and high-fiber antioxidant fruit.

Mediterranean Diet for Every Day: 4 Weeks of Recipes & Meal Plans to Lose Weight
It is all about good healthy food that is never boring or restrictive. The meals are gourmet- good enough to serve at fancy dinner parties and yet simple to make. The result is that you will never get tired of this menu plan. I have been cooking these meals for my fiance for almost two months without having an objective to specifically lose weight, and yet I have lost 8 pounds in areas that are the most difficult to lose weight. This program focuses on healthy living without a whole list of "Do not do's".
My fiance has lost 18 pounds and he applauds every meal I prepare and says he is in heaven. One thing that many of them are lacking are meal plans and actual recipes. This book has just about everything. There aren't too many elaborate or exotic ingredients. I recommend this book very much. Mar 03, Cindy Talbott rated it it was amazing. I won this book at Good Reads. I did not want the book for the diet, because I can not stick to a diet for anything.
I wanted the book for the healthy and tasty recipes. I was not disappointed. The recipes in this book are tasty and healthy and amazing. I have cooked a few so far. Feb 04, Tamara Chambless rated it did not like it. My everyday does not include a week one shopping list so long I ran out of paper.
Mediterranean Diet for Every Day: 4 Weeks of Recipes & Meal Plans to Lose Weight by Callisto Media
Why can't someone write a practical meal plan where you aren't buying hundreds of ingredients to eat for one week. Not practical at all. Dec 29, Jeannette rated it liked it. I find these mediterranean books somewhat informative but the problem is that most of the recipes are for servings. Not very good for a person trying to use it for one person.
Mediterranean Book This is a great book to use as a reference for healthy eating. It gives you diversity as to the choices of food available. Jan 11, Ann-Marie Heidingsfelder rated it it was amazing.

Provides a nice overview of the Mediterranean diet. The strength of this book is in the four week meal plan with shopping lists and menus, which would be ideal for someone who will eat anything and is new to menu planning. Those elements were not quite what I needed, but there were some appetizing recipes I will definitely try.
