are there books about the Med diet?
Another thought... I had to really turn my diet around about twelve years ago and my insurance covered meetings with a dietician. I learned the basics of controlling colesterol and diabetes, which I think is a step one should take before committing to a cookbook diet.
I lost 50 pounds over the twelve year period by following the Mediterranean diet, but I had to learn the basics first..
Welcome and thanks for your question. The South Beach Diet is a good option. I prefer the Mediterranean Diet as it is high in plant sterols and good fats and has been proven to lower cholesterol levels.
Here is a link, take a look;
This gives you a couple options. I hope this helps!
Read the book South Beach Diet. exercise is very important
