    1. Angelo Acquista Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Mediterranean Prescription: Meal Plans and Recipes to Help You Stay Slim and Healthy for the Rest of Your Life book, this is one of the most wanted Angelo Acquista author readers around the world.

    2. I bought this book because I had already made the decision to follow a Mediterranean diet, and I was looking for some tasty, easy recipes that I can fit into my very American lifestyle. This book really doesn't fulfill my expectations.First, I was a little put off by the touch of pretentious. I really don't care what celebrity visits your family’s New York country home. I really don’t care what famous doctor requests recipes from your mother. If I had the time or money to keep a country home [...]

    3. Two of my friends swear by this book. It's not a diet, but a healthy way of living. Great for veggie lovers and I lost 7 pounds.

    4. Easy to read and great recipes. I used this as a template a few years ago to change my eating habits. Getting ready to pull it out and re-read!

    5. Notes:the doctor's 2-week plan: breakfast = coffee, toast, egg whites lunch and dinner = fish/chicken and vegetables PLUS exercise 30 minutes a day 5 days a weekafter that he recommends for each day: 8 svg whole grains 4 svg fruit 4-6 svg veg 1+ cups legumes 2 svg lowfat dairy 1 svg fish 2-4 Tbsp. olive oil 1 oz. nutsbad foods = butter, egg yolks, coconut oil, red meat, full-fat dairy products

    6. Some good ideas in this book, and some decent looking recipes. However, I found the writing to be stilted, boring, and repetitive, and much of his advice is either pretty generic and standard for anybody who knows anything about healthy eating, or it's now outdated and has been proven false in more recent years. For example, we now know that saturated fats are not as evil as we once thought, and his recommendations to cut out butter, egg yolks, etc are somewhat obsolete. I also thought it was so [...]

    7. The Mediterranean Prescription has been a terrific resource for me personally, as I try to improve my eating habits in an effort to lower my cholesterol without taking prescription drugs. A brief introduction provides the science and justification for eating the Mediterranean way--which includes a lot of vegetables, limited meat intake, fish a couple of times per week, replacing most fats with olive oil, and limiting alcohol intake to a moderate amount of red wine each night. Recipes which adher [...]

    8. This book takes my current eating habits and rebalances them. I'm starting to lose weight after just a few days and I feel great. I happen to love Mediterranean food, cooking, gardening, and being healthy and active, but I have struggled with pounds creeping on over the years and I'm just too old to want to starve myself any more. Some people who reviewed this book were apparently not inspired by it, thought the author was pretentious, or talked too much about his culture. To me, that painted a [...]

    9. This book has good information about the basic principles and health advantages of the Mediterranean diet and lifestyle. However, Acquista only sporadically cites the research he mentions in support of his assertions as to why this diet is healthful frequently using phrases like "many studies have found" Having done my own research on the Mediterranean diet, I don't doubt the truth of most of his assertions--I would simply like to know all his sources so that I might have the opportunity to eval [...]

    10. This book meets the basic criteria for someone interested in the Mediterranean Diet. It's given that eating more fruits and vegetables improves health and longevity. And of course, eating fish (check for mercury levels and environmentally friendly catching methods) is also a healthier option over red meat. He provides many resources including his own experiences to back up his info. But I found myself skimming over a lot of content. I think readers are more interested in HOW to incorporate healt [...]

    11. The Mediterranean style of eating appeals to me, and Dr. Acquista does a good job of explaining the benefits of following this type of food plan. All through the book, he touts his recipes for their simplicity and raves on about how delicious they are. By the time I reached the recipe section of the book, the part in which I was most interested, I suffered a severe let down. While I do understand that the recipes are aimed at those who wish to lose weight and to do so quickly, the relative unori [...]

    12. This book was ok, I ended up being distracted by the author's love of his own cooking, which seems odd as he certainly must be a good cook to have a cookbook. Also, I turned out not liking the weight-loss solution tone of the book. I am not so much a diet person, but I am trying to pull and understand elements of this vast way of life to improve the quality and health of my cooking. Overall it was ok.

    13. I stumbled into this book somehow after a google about reduced sense of smellyway, it has changed my life in just one week. I am sold on the diet of the Mediterranean people! I have made 16 dishes so far and have never had food so deliciously seasoned that I prepared!!! It's a game changer for me and my family. This kind of cooking, using so many veggies, that actually tastes good and has health benefits? It's a dream come true :)

    14. Good common sense, not too preachy (which can be a concern with this sort of book), and some helpful menu plans. You will find a few suprises (i.e counterintuitive things), so well worth a peruse.

    15. This is a great book for people considering the Mediterranean diet. It makes a great case for how to get kids on board. I would have liked more science and fewer anecdotes, but that is just me.

    16. Another good resource for those following the Mediterranean diet. Would like to see more recipes for the average person - with readily available product.

    17. 4 stars for the content only (I've lost 2 lbs in 2 weeks and my clothes fit so much better - yay!). His writing deserves 3 stars, he goes on and on and his little stories are annoying.
