You could lose 10lbs in 10 weeks by learning to eat the Mediterranean way based on a low glycemic carbohydrate eating plan.

If you are tired of dieting, following impossible meal plans, and not getting your desired results, eating the Mediterranean Way is the program for you. Learn how to eat real, healthy, whole, unprocessed foods for life and bring your health and weight back to its prime.

Did you know eating a Mediterranean Diet could prevent or even reverse metabolic syndrome, a cluster of risk factors for heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes? A Mediterranean style diet has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects on the body and people who eat this kind of diet live longer with less disease. A new statement by an International Scientific Consensus Summit concludes that low glycemic diets, like the Mediterranean diet, can:
  • Improve blood sugar control in type 2 diabetes
  • Reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes by improving insulin sensitivity and the function of cells in the pancreas
  • Reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by improving cholesterol levels and the markers of inflammation
Studies show it may be better for weight loss than a low fat diet and more satisfying.......It's more than a diet, its a lifestyle. We can show you how to make it a part of your lifestyle!

Delicious healthy snacks and a feature recipe sampling are provided each week. Easy meal plans for healthy breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks are provided, along with a grocery shopping list, recipes, and no calorie counting! We've done all the work for you.
