Berries such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries are also a must in this diet because of their antioxidants. If you want to follow a Mediterranean diet, eat some fruit for dessert. That is how Mediterraneans eat their fruit most of the times. Have a salad in your main meals. Use olive oil and lemon for dressing; This is a powerful antioxidant combination. Tomatoes and tomato products are a staple food in the Mediterranean diet; they contain lycopene.
Cut a whole tomato and spread it with olive oil and some basil as part of your side dish or include them in your salads. Whole Grains. Have a piece of whole wheat or whole grain bread with your main meals except with pasta. Have whole wheat pasta 2 or 3 times a week.
It is low in calories, and the fiber enhances the feeling of fullness. Eat dried beans, lentils, or garbanzo beans 2 or 3 times a week. Nutrition experts at the Michigan State University tell us that eating 2 to 4 cups of cooked legumes every week could boost our heart health.
Dry beans have fiber that could reduce cholesterol from the body. Eat legumes and a piece of whole grain bread to have the perfect protein. Vegetable protein does not put a load on kidneys as animal protein does.
Have a handful of nuts as a snack in your morning break. Nuts are also a staple food in Mediterranean countries and are high in monounsaturated fat, the one that does not get stuck in the arteries. Read the food label and be aware of portions because nuts are high in calories. Scientific studies have found that almonds and walnuts could be the healthiest choices. Olive oil. Use olive oil in your meals both to cook and as a condiment in your salads.
Use olive oil and lemon as a dip in your salads. Fish and sea food. Have fish and sea food two or three times a week.
Salmon and sardines are excellent choices because they provide omega-3 oils, oils that the body needs but cannot create in enough quantities. Garlic and aromatic herbs. Use garlic and aromatic herbs as condiment. Garlic could be the leading contributor to the low incidence of high blood pressure in Mediterranean countries . Sample Mediterranean Diet Menu A 28 day diet plan would introduce changes gradually.
Studies have shown that small changes over time are an effective way to make lifelong habits. Start with the elimination of processed foods and increase fruit and vegetable.
Continue by adding more beans and switch from other oils or butter to extra virgin olive oil. Limit seafood, poultry and eggs to a few times per week each and reduce red meat to no more than a portion a month. And finally focus on dairy products and avoid milk, cream and butter. Eat a minimum of five servings of fruits and vegetables daily.
Choose foods rich in fiber, vitamins and phytonutrients. Eat legumes at least 8 times a week. Stork puts whole grains on a pedestal. But whole grains aren't always good for you. If you are looking to lose weight, eating whole-wheat bread isn't any better for you than white bread.
Though whole grain bread might have more nutrients, it spikes blood sugar faster than white bread, worsening sugar addictions.
Stork bashes LDL cholesterol - This is a molecule that our body naturally makes. It has a vital purpose in our body, so we shouldn't be calling it "bad". All doctors seem to do this and it doesn't make sense to me. If we didn't have LDL, we wouldn't have a brain. What is actually bad is oxidized LDL, which can be produced in many ways, like blood sugar spikes. LDL levels are a poor predictor of heart disease, as recent research is now showing us. This was probably one of the most disturbing things.
Stork said that recent research shows that whole-milk is a healthier option than skim milk. I've seen the research articles and I couldn't agree more. But then he admits that he opts for skim milk and that we should too. Even for people wanting to lose weight, this doesn't make sense. Research shows that people who opt for whole milk actually have a healthier weight.
Here is one article published in one of the most prestigious journals: There were a few things that Dr. Stork said that were encouraging: This is awesome. Many doctors don't bother distinguishing the health differences between different types of meat. Grass-fed, outdoor meat is certainly healthier option. His position on saturated fat was surprisingly balanced and accurate. Many doctors group saturated fats with trans fats, which is completely wrong.
In the grand scheme of things, these three annoyances won't make a huge difference. Compared to all the other diets out there, this one is pretty good.
I think this diet might beat Weight Watchers and many of the other mainstream diets out there, but I don't believe that this is the holy grail of diets. Writing a book on eating the right food is tough. Our understanding of nutrition is changing so much, doctors and nutritionists are going to continue struggling to define what exactly humans are supposed to eat.
If I were to summarize this book, it would be this: I agree with this premise, but it is debated how we should restrict calories and what "healthy" means.

And probably your freedom, since you'll likely do murder for food. NO alternatives depending on amount of weight you have to lose, options given for categories of food lead to unrealistic combinations.
For example, for breakfast, you could conceivably have a glass of skim milk and an apple. For lunch, you could have a cup of plain yogurt a One of the funniest books I've ever read! Not that you would. On that part of the plan, you can have fruit, but only apples, berries and grapefruit.
No sugars, no sweeteners at all. It does expand on the next part and a little further on the maintenance plan, but not as much you'd think. If you cut out all added sugars and sweeteners, I doubt you'd need any other diet plan.
So just do that and save some time and money. Who eats plain yogurt? View all 4 comments. Apr 02, Sandy Emerson rated it it was amazing. I have to give this book five stars because I'm currently following the meal plan in it. And it works. I've lost 8 to 9kg in the almost four weeks I've been following it. Here's the thing - I hate exercise - I always have, but the half hour amount you need to do each day according to this book has been easy for me. I walk and I dance.
That's one of the things I loved about Doctor Stork and this book - he got me. In part of the book he wrote that it was okay to dance in your living room. That mad I have to give this book five stars because I'm currently following the meal plan in it.
That made exercise fun for me and, to me, that's an essential thing. And the meals are yummy - sure you have odd things like barley to eat, but in the scheme of things, I eat better now than I ever have in my life.
My pallet is expanding and I like the thought of that as well. The book itself was a fun read. Dr Stork's personality shone through and it was great. It was a dry as dust book, it was actually the complete opposite. I realize that not all diets work for everyone, but this one works for me and I have to recommend that to anyone who wants to lose wait to give it a try. Like me, it just may work for you.
Dec 03, Joan rated it really liked it. This book includes conclusive research in the nutritional sciences and with a detailed bibliography. According to Stork, who is an emergency room doctor, the biggest problems in the E. The book is designed in with 3 stages of the STAT program.

After that he outlines the Restore Plan, and the Maintain Plan. Recipes are also included. The biggest hindrance to his diet plan for mid-westerners is not having the inexpensive access to fresh produce and seafood.
Although, he does mention using frozen produce that is packaged without excess sugar. Recommended for public libraries. Also recommended for academic libraries with nutritional sciences curriculum collections. Nov 03, Deborah rated it really liked it. Very smart advice, underpinned with solid research and rationale written in plain English.
I've applied the ideas and have benefitted; this has changed the way I think about download and consume food. The writing can be somewhat repetitive and the author at times overwrought, but the ideas are worth reading through all of that. Another reason for the 4 stars is the recipe section - it's far too basic and boring and it didn't need to be. There are a multitude of good recipes one can leverage with Very smart advice, underpinned with solid research and rationale written in plain English.
There are a multitude of good recipes one can leverage within the nutritional guidelines listed by Dr. I would love to see the author team. With some professional chefs and create some really delicious recipes using these very smart and highly applicable concepts.

I read this book but haven't implemented the program. This book provides a clear and simple plan for lasting weight loss. Jam packed with information on foods, good and bad, and much much more information. I received this book for free from a Goodreads First Reads giveaway. Jan 30, Heidi rated it really liked it.
I am not even going to pretend that I didn't read this book because of cutie pie, Dr. On a serious note, I thought this book provided accurate information concerning obesity and what problems we are facing as a nation. The plans are clear and concise, but don't necessarily provide new information on living a healthy active lifestyle. Take the time to read it and refresh your memory of what a healthy lifestyle can do for you and your family.
Jun 08, Claire rated it liked it Shelves: I am a fan of Dr Stork and that's probably the main reason I picked this up. There are some great recipes in here but I don't think that I would be following the diet. I already don't eat gluten, chocolate and I have cut out almost all sugar from my diet, so I guess it's not too different. I enjoyed the information more for this one.
It was a really interesting read. Apr 19, Tamer rated it it was amazing Shelves: An excellent book. Sep 18, Jen rated it it was amazing Shelves: It piqued my interest so I decided to give it a try. There are A LOT of health issues within my extended family. Everything from high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attacks, obesity, etc. Most of their health problems are direct results of poor life choices, i.
I'm a wife and mother and I want to be healthy for as long as possible for my family. I also want my family to be healthy as well. I don't want to go down the same road as so many in my family have gone down. Because of that I took control of my health a few years ago, started eating healthy and working out regularly. But after having a baby a year ago, the pounds slowly crept back on and some healthy habits fell by the wayside.
This book was the swift kick in the behind that I really needed. This book is a fast and easy read. I found it very enjoyable, and interesting. There's so much info on how food affects the body, in good and bad ways, and the illnesses and diseases that we can avoid simply by eating how nature intended us to. I don't view this as a "diet," rather a lifestyle. Yes, the first two phases require some restrictions, but if you want to shed some pounds, you have to cut some things out of your diet.
But once you make it to the maintain plan you have endless options, all of which are healthy enjoyable foods that your body needs to thrive. I don't know about the rest of you, but I want to live as long as possible with little to no health issues along the way.
I don't want to be on 30 different medications to keep me alive, or have to prick my finger 5 times a day to check my blood sugar, or have to sleep sitting up because I can't breathe at night. Food is medicine, there's no two ways about that.
And if you're remotely interested in improving your health and your life, then you should read this book and follow the plans. I'm currently into my first week of the STAT plan and the food is great. My husband and I tend to eat healthy most of the time so these foods are all favorites and familiar to us. But if you tend to eat a lot of deep fried, or sugary foods, this might be a little tougher in the beginning for you but it's so worth it.
Think of how much your body will thank you in the long run. You only get one go at this life thing and one body to do it in, so you should want to make it count! Dec 04, Karen rated it really liked it Shelves: I received this book in a Goodreads giveaway and was anxious to begin reading.
There are so many diet books out on the market that tend promote fad diets. This one does not. What Dr.
Stork does is provide an eating plan that focuses on real foods. The eating plan is similar to an exchange plan. He also gives you 10 prescriptions to follow, like reduce the amount of su I received this book in a Goodreads giveaway and was anxious to begin reading. He also gives you 10 prescriptions to follow, like reduce the amount of sugar in your diet and get rid of artificial sweeteners.
Not only does he provide these prescriptions but provides the science behind them. He also recognizes that making these changes will not happen overnight but is something needs to be worked on over time. The real test of a diet book is how well can you follow the plan.
