The Omega Diet by Dr. Artemis Simopoulos, M.D. and Jo Robinson
details a lifelong nutrition plan that may be the world's healthiest diet. Based
on the Mediterranean diet, it contains moderate amounts of healthy fats and
generous proportions of fruits and vegetables, fish, and lean protein. Unlike
many popular diets today, it is not ultra-high in protein, or ultra-low in fat
or carbohydrates. Instead, it contains a balanced ratio that has been clinically
proven to promote optimal health.
Omega Diet features three eating plans—one for weight maintenance, one
for steady weight loss, and one for more rapid weight loss. No matter which
plan you choose, you will be fueling your body with nutrients proven to fight
disease and promote optimal health. The book offers 50 delicious recipes such as
"Tuna with Sun-dried Tomatoes," "Chicken in Hellfire," "Honey
Flax Bread," and "Jo's Brownies."

is the one most apt to make most Americans feel better, live longer, and stay
healthier...The book is full of gems of dietary wisdom and practical advice."
