I don’t like restrictions–period. So when I hear the word diet, I feel frustrated by all the things I won’t be able to eat. Imagine my surprise when I learned that the Mediterranean Diet isn’t what we traditionally think of when we say “diet”, but is a lifestyle that should be enjoyed with both pleasure and health in mind. Can someone give me an Amen?!
Enter Amy Riolo, author of The Ultimate Mediterranean Diet Cookbook who made the word “diet” sound very inviting by focusing on the importance of enjoying meals with others, and maintaining physical activity.
