Book Description

With more than 100 mouthwatering recipes, switching to a vegetable- and seafood-based diet has never been easier, healthier—or more delicious!
You can go vegetarian to slim down, help reduce your risk for cancer and cardiovascular disease, feel great, and probably live longer. Or you can eat fish to help protect your heart, quell appetite, stay sharp, be happier, and even have better skin. (You read that right!) Better yet, you can enjoy the best of both worlds with The Pescetarian Plan—a delicious, easy-to-follow, one-of-a-kind program for weight loss and optimal physical and mental well-being.
Inspired by the traditional Mediterranean way of eating (“pesce” is the Italian word for “fish,” and “pesca” is Spanish for “fishing,” thus the alternate spelling “pescatarian”), veteran nutritionist Janis Jibrin, M.S., R.D., offers step-by-step portion- and meal-planning instructions, including a wide variety of quick and easy breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes to help you meet your weight-loss and health goals. She shares her deep knowledge of the science behind the healthiest diet on the planet, deftly explaining the amazing potential benefits of eating the pescetarian way—including whittling your waist, reducing chronic inflammation, preventing arterial plaque, and possibly warding off Alzheimer’s. She also breaks down the latest information about mercury, overfishing, and the environmental impact of your ingredient choices.
With Chef Sidra Forman’s expert guidance, you’ll become confident in the kitchen—fish and other types of seafood are much easier to prepare (and much harder to mess up!) than you may think. And the mouthwatering recipes and photos—including Broiled Trout with Preserved Lemon and Thyme, Grilled Shrimp with Peach BBQ Sauce, Roasted Chick Pea Snacks, Blueberries Baked with Sweet Cream, and Chocolate Cupcakes with Mint Icing—give you options the whole family will love.
Quite Possibly the Healthiest Eating Style on the Planet!
On the Pescetarian Diet you will:
• See inches around the waist disappear
• Feel more active and productive
• Fill your plate with the best, most nutritious food
• Stop counting calories—it’s all in the portions
• Go at your own pace: start slowly or dive right in
• Really enjoy your food and its many benefits

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book with interesting recipes 16 Mar. 2014
By Tiger - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book has some great information. I have been studying nutrition on my own for years and I agree with the authors position that a diet high in seafood and vegetables (high Omega-3) is one of the healthiest ways to eat. She provides a lot of detail on why this plan is so healthy without getting overly technical. She addresses issues such as concerns over mercury and consumption of dairy. She tries to use sustainable, high omega 3 options for her recipes as well. The recipes look amazing.
I actually contacted the author before I purchased this book because I have a wheat allergy and I was not sure if that would keep me from enjoying the plan. She was very quick to respond and helpful and I found that there is a lot in the book that is wheat free and a lot more that can be adjusted.
I recently moved to the ocean, so now I am looking forward to being able to take advantage of the fresh seafood here. This book will definitely help me and gave me some solid ideas for improving my help.
Very well done and recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Even More Reasons to Love Fish! 19 May 2014
By Dee Long - Published on
Janis Jibrin makes a convincing case for combining the eating habits of vegetarians with increased seafood consumption in this very informative and helpful book, which is part cookbook and part nutritional guide. She carefully takes you through the steps of transforming your shopping and eating habits in order to become a pescetarian to enjoy the benefits of weight loss and increased energy among others. Includes a nice selection of recipes, ranging from center of the plate entrees to snacks. You'll want to get on a first name basis with your local fishmonger after reading The Pescetarian Plan.

Having been told to give up meat I found this book very helpful. It was written for the layman and the information is easily understood. The recipes look interesting and make this new style of eating less daunting for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to understand and follow. Delicious recipes. 1 Mar. 2015
By Drew Brackin - Published on
I really love the Pescetarian Plan. It is very clear, informative and motivating. The pictures are beautiful and the two recipes I have made (shrimp taco salad and chickpeas roasted with oregano) are delicious. I am looking forward to using her exchange program for losing the last few lbs. She has 4 different exchanges, 1500 cal. 1800 cal, 2100 cal and 2500 cal. Very clear and easy to follow. An excellent book.
