Slimmer - The New Mediterranean Way To Lose Weight: A Book Review

About The Book:

Released for the first time in America: Join the hundreds of thousands who have lost weight and kept it off for good with this bestselling diet book from the Mediterranean, featuring over 80 delicious, fat-burning, easy-to-make recipes.

In just one year, Harry Papas gained 110 pounds. Then he lost it all for life. Papas, a certified dietician in Greece, shed the pounds by creating a simple yet revolutionary nutrition plan: a delicious, fat-burning Mediterranean diet coupled with the self-awareness he needed to combat the triggers that contributed to his weight gain.

Unlike other diets, Slimmer's three-cycle, richly varied meal plan doesn't restrict you from enjoying carbs, sugars, or fats, and it doesn't enforce calorie counting. Rather, the nine-week program is designed to help you stay slim while actually enjoying what you eat, encouraging you to adopt a simpler lifestyle and lifelong healthy habits. This easy-to-follow plan will allow you to get rid of those unwanted pounds with incredibly flavorful and satisfying meals, full of sustaining, wholesome foods -- such as fresh fruits and vegetables, olive oil, and Greek yogurt -- that have been enjoyed for centuries by those in the Mediterranean, as well as by celebrities visiting Papas' family restaurant in Greece.

Packed with recipes and practical nutritional advice, Slimmer also helps you understand why you gained weight and provides the psychological support and encouragement you need to successfully lose weight and permanently retain the loss.

My Review:

Over the last few years I have been trying to find a new way of eating that will help to regulate my Type 2 Diabetes, trying to limit complex carbs, while taking in enough protein, dairy, fruits and veggies to maintain good health. I had previously heard of the Mediterranean Diet but did not really know the in`s and out`s of it. Until now. 

Slimmer gives the reader a run-down of this great way to not only lose weight but make a complete lifestyle change. It not only gives you a detailed understanding of the cycles involved in the diet but also some incredible, and easy, recipes that will help you be successful in your weight loss journey. Some of my favorite recipes that I tried were Fruit Salad with Yogurt Crunch, Deluxe Garden Salad, and Grilled Chicken Pizza. All three were delicious, and even better, my kids loved them too!

If you are looking for inspiration in your journey to healthy living, I highly recommend Slimmer and eating the Mediterranean way.

I give this book a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase Slimmer at your favorite bookseller, from Turner Publishing
