Emilia Klapp's innovative book offers a glimpse of how a registered dietitian can personalize a lifestyle intervention. The book is unique in that is written in simple-to-follow dialogue that will answer questions about what makes this diet so special. Presented in a fun-to-read yet informative manner, it considers the whole person, not just the diet. The best measure to prolong human life is not to short it said Doctor Hulefand almost two hundred years ago. Despite this advise, Americans consume high levels of saturated fat and processed foods and they keep a low level of physical activity, two factors that put them at major risk for conditions that threaten to take their lives prematurely. Those in the Mediterranean countries, however, are well known for being some of the healthiest people in the world. The Mediterranean lifestyle has been proven by scientific research to have health benefits, and now it can be followed easily with this guide that includes tips and recipes.
