Ok so I bought the book hoping to lose a few pounds and get back on track. I had quit watching and put 15 pounds on over a year ! "YIKES! " Easy to do especially the older we get. After 4 - 5 weeks eating as the plan recommends I lost 8/10 pounds. So I was happy about that. The unexpected surprise came when I went for my checkup. My cholesterol numbers were the lowest they had been in a decade. I actually asked the Dr. if they could have possibly gotten someone else's results by mistake. I was rocked ! My total down below 200 (194) My Tri-G down from 273 to (130) My LDL down from 240 to 122). Now you see why I asked about someone else's results. I don't write reviews often but the blood results made me write this one. I had been put on Cholesterol meds and could not tolerate them. I didn't want to be on them and now I don't need to. I had tried exercise and other diets to change the numbers to no avail. My Dr. thought maybe I was "DNA Locked" into my Cholesterol. It seems that's not the case.
The Initial part of the diet has you eliminate Carbs, Sugar, Dairy and Processed foods. Sounds hard right? It really wasn't. The recipes are great and if you don't care about red meat much it wasn't a big deal. I love fish and poultry and the rest is plant based ( vegetables). I was an Ice Cream every night for snack guy- Now I'm a fruit every night for snack guy. And at 61 I can avoid being on a med that makes my quality of life less enjoyable. I hope this review makes you think about trying the book and the diet, and that you have the same successful results I have had. I am committed to the way of eating as a lifestyle now !

I have been on the 2-week prescription for 12 days and have lost 6 pds. That is even through the Thanksgiving holiday this week. I am impressed by the health benefits. My blood sugar is stable for hours and junk food no longer calls my name! I am motivated to continue because I am having such great results. I had high energy really kick in near the end of the first week and I've only been doing 30 min of moderate exercise every day. The olive oil truly made the difference for me. I used to eat diet salads with no-fat dressing - never again! There is a satisfaction that seems to really carry me through cravings and I attribute it to the regular use of olive oil.

I am staying on the 2-week prescription until I lose the remaining 20 pds. I will definitely give an update. The plan is so simple that I had it memorized on the first day. Thank you, Doctor! This was very easy for me to customize for myself.

Update at 4 Weeks: 10 pounds gone , over a 3rd of my goal! I even took some meals off when I finally had hormonal cravings. I decided it would be better to give in a little to cravings than to be a martyr and ultimately binge. So I enjoyed adding modest portions of spaghetti with ground beef, fruit, cheese, butter, wine, nuts, extra bread and my favorite coconut cupcake for a few days. I only gained 1 1/2 and lost it within 2 days plus more after I got back on track this last week. Understanding that I can really make progress when I'm not hormonal while maintaining (which I hope I can get better at with practice) while I am has been a wonderful discovery! I also figure that the time off balances my body because I am on the restricted part of the diet - so I feel good about having a little fruit and nuts for health. I feel so healthy and have been enjoying caviar with my sardines (buy good quality, tender sardines in olive oil). I still have a little soy or almond milk in my coffee. I love this 'diet' and will continue! 10 pounds in a month is amazing for me - It took me more than double the time to do this on another diet that was much more complicated to follow. I must have been born to eat this way.

Update at 6 Weeks: Halfway to my goal weight. It was incredible to go shopping this week and fit loosely into size 10 pants when I was a tight 14 only 6 weeks ago. If I take an occasional day or two off (which I did for Christmas and blissfully enjoyed all the usual treats), I just go back to the diet 100% and the weight starts dropping again. So healthy, too! I've never been able to take days off and get back on track so easily. No more blood sugar crashes, even on off days has made me a believer. My rings have been loose for the entire 6 weeks, also.

Update at almost 12 Weeks: My goal weight is in sight (10 lbs to go)! I got some butter-flavored olive oil that I love on toast every morning. I try to stay on the strict part for several days in a row and then I maintain easily in-between. I have had to overhaul my clothes and have given a lot to Goodwill. I am back in small tops and my size 10 jeans are sagging now, so it's time to go shopping for 8's. I reread the book from time to time for motivation. It's been 12 weeks, but I won't hit 3 months until Feb. 12. I am so excited that I might be at my goal weight by then. It's not that the diet is hard, but you can diet, enjoy your food, and not be starving to lose weight. I'm pretty resistant to weight loss and have to actively be on the prescription part to make progress while others can lose in the maintenance phase. It works for me like nothing else ever has!

Update 20 weeks (Mid-Nov to late March 2013): I am still plugging away and it's going well. I am really getting trim and have lost about 18 lbs with 7 to go! I gained 1 1/2 last weekend eating cookies, but I don't mind. Lost it fast and painlessly in two strict prescription days of fish, chicken, eggs and vegetables (and my favorite morning toast with butter-flavored olive oil). I feel like I have finally found something that works for me for life. Life is a bit up and down and this diet works well with that. I can have an 'off' meal or two and not gain a thing most times. The cookies were a special treat and the author says he sometimes likes to indulge also. If I'm not strict, I maintain, if I indulge, I might gain a tiny bit. Definitely a loose sz 8 now in pants. Something that helped motivate me recently was the 'pause button' idea (some new book out that I saw in a news article). It helped me get a few strict days in a row, because I don't lose unless I am strict. Sorry if there is repeated information in my updates, but I truly feel and look amazingly healthy. My doctor is very happy!

Mid-April 2013 - Cholesterol is down 36 points to 199! Need to buy nearly a new wardrobe for this summer.

End of Oct. 2013 Will be a year in a couple of weeks. Have started showing people my driver's license picture recently and they are shocked by the change. Didn't matter if they knew me last year or not, it is a HUGE improvement. I alternate between strict days and then relaxed days. If I go way off I get stomach aches and I go right back to the Mediterranean Prescription to feel better.

This is not your typical Mediterranean Recipe Book. The focus of the book is information concerning how you eat effects your health. It discusses how the Mediterranean Eating Habits have been found to be the healthiest and why it's so good for you. The doctor discusses how you can eat to be satisfied and healthy too. It was very interesting. In the back of the book there are some simple recipes to get your started in your new eating habits. With just some minor changes in our food preparation and food choice, my husband and I have been slowly losing weight. If you're looking for a comprehensive collection of recipes, this would not be the book for you. If you're looking to get the "why" you should eat Mediterranean and to get new eating habits, this is the book you want to read.

My husband lost 11 pounds the 1st week on this diet and I lost 5. I did cheat a little and he didn't. We are healthier and happy to be losing weight. We have more than 10 pounds to lose so we'll be on this a while. But it is totally doable. All it costs is you buying the eggs, bread, vegetables, seafood or chicken. Within 3 days of being on this diet my husband got off his blood sugar pills as his blood sugar dropped so far. Now his blood sugar is in the normal range 70-100. We are now in our 2nd week. I lost 10 pounds total and he lost 16 total. I was in pain before this diet. My left knee had arthritis. But now me being 10 pounds lighter, I don't hurt anymore which is great since we're going on vacation. No one wants to be in pain ever and especially not on vacation. So I totally recommend this totally magical easy way of losing weight. It's better than Weight Watcher's.
