Mediterranean Diet: 250+ Heart Healthy Recipes & Desserts + 100 Mediterranean Diet Beginner’s Tips, Tools, & Resources. (Mediterranean Diet Cookbook, Lose Weight, Slow Aging, Fight Disease & Burn Fat by Kevin Hughes
Don't care for some of the discussions in this book as our nutritionist told us to limit our salt intake due to husband's heart attack. This book says Med diet is high in salt-I totally disagree with that.
I know what I can sprinkle on our food to make it healthy.
Recipes in this book do not have pictures. The nutritional information they do contain is different for each of the recipes, most will have protein, fat-not broken up into good and bad fats, carbs and calories. Each recipe has a title and servings and list of ingredients. When you have to use a can of beans and just rinse it off the brine is already in the beans, USE FRESH!
Some items I have no idea what they even are: tahini. Also has directions in how to make. Not all recipes even have nutritional information. Some of format is different for some of the recipes.
There are to me, a lot of useless information in the book. Introduction starts out with what the Mediterranean diet is and to check wtih your doctore first.
I totally disagree with having red wine at dinner. our doctor told us if you do not drink wine, don't start because of this diet. To us it's a new lifestyle as we combine exercise and sleep with the good diet.
Not sure if you really need to know about what kitchen utensils and appliances you should be using. Some of my appliances do the job of 6 other appliances.
There are listings of other sites online to check out along with apps to use.
Funny how it states to use low fat butter and other products but recipes don't use them as ingredients, they use real milk, etc.
We use low fat, low sodium and have no problems when the recipe calls for regular.
This book I could modify but it still doesn't list good and bad fats nor sodium which is what we are more interested in than calories or carbs. So lacking.

Diet Cookbook: Healthy Dessert Recipes Under 160 Calories: Naturally, Delicious Desserts That No One Will Believe They Are Low Fat & Healthy
Diet Cookbook: Healthy Dessert Recipes Under 160 Calories: Naturally, Delicious Desserts That No One Will Believe They Are Low Fat & Healthy - R Federbush Diet Cookbook: Healthy Dessert Recipes under 160 Calories. Naturally, Delicious Desserts That No One Will Believe They Are Low Fat & Healthy ((Diet Cookbooks Collection)) by R. Federbush
Recipes that are a good value on calories. Each recipe has a picture and some of the measurements are in metric system.
Calories is the only concern in this book where I'd be more concerned about fat and sodium for our diets. These are healthy choices where I have learned to not use frosting on a cupcake but yogurt as suggested here also for a topping.
Love the varied categories and especially the Q&A at the end. Very thorough cookbook.

The Paleo Diet: Lose Weight and Get Healthy by Eating the Food You Were Designed to Eat
The Paleo Diet: Lose Weight and Get Healthy by Eating the Food You Were Designed to Eat - Loren Cordain As someone who's successfully kept over 100 pounds off for several years, I believe the best diet/eating plan is one you can maintain long term. This diet is ridiculously restrictive; I don't believe -- and googling recipes and meal plans supports this theory -- that most people claiming to follow it are actually doing so. The amount of money and work involved in following this diet to the letter would be very hard to sustain, even if the food tastes good enough to provide incentive, which I highly doubt.The diet outlined is also extremely self-contradictory; he will say "only these oils are allowed" in one paragraph and then discuss the health benefits of other oils in the next. And I was amused that he allows alcohol and diet drinks (found on every tree by our early ancestors, no doubt!) in "moderate amounts." Of course he does -- no diet book would ever succeed that didn't.

The Paleo Diet: Lose Weight and Get Healthy by Eating the Food You Were Designed to Eat - Loren Cordain Not a bad book just not great either if you want a diet book something akin to the Abs Diet book then this is for you. Not a great read but not dry either.

The biggest negative for me is his reference to research but not really follow through, I guess think was intentional as some may feel intimidated by hard science. For me I just felt it was to general.

The recipes did not look that great so I left them alone completely.

I have started reading other Paleo books because I think there is something correct about this diet but sadly this book just did not give me what I was seeking.
