Description

With more than 100 mouthwatering recipes, switching to a vegetable- and seafood-based diet has never been easier, healthier--or more delicious

You can go vegetarian to slim down, help reduce your risk for cancer and cardiovascular disease, feel great, and probably live longer. Or you can eat fish to help protect your heart, quell appetite, stay sharp, be happier, and even have better skin. (You read that right ) Better yet, you can enjoy the best of both worlds with The Pescetarian Plan--a delicious, easy-to-follow, one-of-a-kind program for weight loss and optimal physical and mental well-being.
Inspired by the traditional Mediterranean way of eating ("pesce" is the Italian word for "fish," and "pesca" is Spanish for "fishing," thus the alternate spelling "pescatarian"), veteran nutritionist Janis Jibrin, M.S., R.D., offers step-by-step portion- and meal-planning instructions, including a wide variety of quick and easy breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes to help you meet your weight-loss and health goals. She shares her deep knowledge of the science behind the healthiest diet on the planet, deftly explaining the amazing potential benefits of eating the pescetarian way--including whittling your waist, reducing chronic inflammation, preventing arterial plaque, and possibly warding off Alzheimer's. She also breaks down the latest information about mercury, overfishing, and the environmental impact of your ingredient choices.
With Chef Sidra Forman's expert guidance, you'll become confident in the kitchen--fish and other types of seafood are much easier to prepare (and much harder to mess up ) than you may think. And the mouthwatering recipes and photos--including Broiled Trout with Preserved Lemon and Thyme, Grilled Shrimp with Peach BBQ Sauce, Roasted Chick Pea Snacks, Blueberries Baked with Sweet Cream, and Chocolate Cupcakes with Mint Icing--give you options the whole family will love.
Quite Possibly the Healthiest Eating Style on the Planet

On the Pescetarian Diet you will:
- See inches around the waist disappear
- Feel more active and productive
- Fill your plate with the best, most nutritious food
- Stop counting calories--it's all in the portions
