"LIVE A LONGER, LEANER, HEALTHIER LIFE IN THE MEDITERRANEAN ZONE! Eat to stop weight gain and strip away unwanted fat. Reverse diabetes and protect yourself from Alzheimer's. Free yourself from inflammation, allergies, and hormonal chaos. Enjoy the most delicious, nutritious foods from the world's most beloved cuisine. Break out of the diet-and-exercise trap for good! The Mediterranean diet is the most universally accepted healthy eating regimen around. But what, exactly, is it? If you think it's pasta with red sauce, Italian bread drizzled in olive oil, and plenty of fresh fruit and cheese, you're wrong--dead wrong. The Mediterranean Zone is here to set you right. Barry Sears, Ph.D., revolutionized dieting with his 1995 bestseller The Zone. In the two decades since its publication, its principles of eating for optimal hormonal balance have become the standard by which diets are measured. Now, in The Mediterranean Zone, you'll learn how our modern American diet changes the inflammatory response inside our bodies--and how that increased inflammation puts you at risk for Alzheimer's, diabetes, cancer, and more. You'll learn which Mediterranean diet foods help put out the fire, reducing your risk of disease while stripping away pounds, boosting your energy, and even lightening your mood! And you'll learn how to turbocharge the Mediterranean diet to make it even more effective! Live your best life, in your best body, with The Mediterranean Zone"-- Provided by publisher.

I did like the book and I found the information interesting but not something I can sustain. It was well written and the chapters were set up in a way that you could not read the whole book if you just want to skip and browse.

Even though I think Dr Sears' information is accurate and helpful, I find the diet too restrictive and not practical enough for me. Cooking healthy on a daily basis from fresh and local ingredients is more important to me than finding the ingredients in these recipes. It's just not practical. The ingredients are too hard to locate throughout the year.
