Now, by combining it with the ever-popular Mediterranean diet, you can burn fat, lose weight, and improve heart and brain health; all while eating delicious foods inspired by the cuisines of Italy, Greece, Northern Africa, and the Middle East. With the simple program in this book, you are guaranteed to lose weight by eating a rich variety of whole foods that are high in fat, moderate in protein, and very low in carbs. The combination of these two proven approaches transforms the body into a fat-burning machine. The benefits of low-carbohydrate diets can’t be overstated. Studies increasingly point to their potential for preventing a variety of diseases, including Parkinson’s, diabetes, and some forms of cancer.
