Science and sensuality meet in The Greek Diet, your guide to losing weight while looking and eating like a deity, from the “Martha Stewart of Greece,” world-famous chef Maria Loi, and health journalist and former Olympic athlete Sarah Toland.

Grounded in the Mediterranean lifestyle and developed by world-renowned Greek chef Maria Loi, The Greek Diet combines classic Mediterranean ingredients like olive oil, yogurt, and honey in delicious, healthy recipes that satisfy the soul and the palete. New research shows that the Mediterranean diet is the healthiest food plan in the world, and is especially noted for its positive effects on heart health. With The Greek Diet, you eat to enjoy yourself, just like the ancient Greek gods. There is no starving, no long, grueling hours at the gym, and no restrictive plans eliminating carbs, dairy, caffeine, or alcohol.

Structured around the 12 food pillars of the traditional Greek diet, The Greek Diet includes 100 healthy, authentic, sensual Greek recipes that use delicious unprocessed ingredients, as well as tips for incorporating easy exercises and improved sleep—both metabolism boosters—into your Greek lifestyle. Sprinkled throughout the book are charming and insightful anecdotes from the authors that add flavor and fun. There are also several different meal plans to personalize your journey and help you lose the weight you need while enjoying the foods you love, including a kick-start plan to shed pounds quickly and safely and jumpstart your journey to a slimmer, healthier, happier you.

From the Back Cover:

Lose Weight and Feel Great by Indulging in the World’s Healthiest and Most Delicious Diet!

Ancient Greeks enjoyed wine and rich ingredients like olive oil and honey, and their bodies were immortalized in sculpture as a standard of beauty and sensuality. Today new studies prove that the Mediterranean diet is the healthiest food plan in the world. Research shows that it is noted for reducing the risk of diabetes, improving heart health, and sharpening the mind with foods rich in omega-3s. Now, in The Greek Diet, world-renowned chef Maria Loi—who grew up in a small Greek village where she learned to cook from family recipes—has teamed up with veteran health journalist Sarah Toland to bring the weight-loss and health benefits of the traditional Greek diet straight to your table.

The Greek Diet offers:

  • Easy-to-follow meal plans that are structured around the twelve Pillar Foods of the Mediterranean diet to jump-start your weight loss and improve your overall health.
  • 100 authentic, mouthwatering Greek recipes using whole foods and unprocessed
  • ingredients, including what the New York Times called one of the best Greek yogurts.
  • Plans that can be modified to fit any lifestyle, including gluten-free and dairy-free alternatives.
  • The twelve Pillar Foods of a Greek diet, including olive oil, Greek yogurt, wine, coffee,
  • and tea.

. . . and more!

More than just a weight-loss plan, The Greek Diet is a path back to health and a way of eating that is not only sustainable but also completely satisfying and enjoyable.
