Should be on everyone's reading list
on 21 May 2000
This book has changed the way I think about fats. It has taught me to bring my intake of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids into balance and to recognize the importance of the latter in my diet. Although the book contains rock-solid scientific documentation, it is easy to understand, and the plan it advocates is simple, nutritionally sound, and offers many appealing food options. For the past several months I have been following the guidelines in "The Omega Diet", choosing recipes from my large collection of cookbooks, particularly Sonia Uvezian's "Recipes and Remembrances from an Eastern Mediterranean Kitchen", which is one of the best cookbooks I have ever used. Uvezian provides health-conscious readers with a wealth of easy-to-prepare recipes for incredibly delicious, nutritious, and satisfying dishes that are quite compatible with the principles outlined by Dr. Simopoulos. The results have been rewarding. I feel great and have even lost some weight without trying! It is a pleasure to be true to this diet, which is one you can enjoy all your life with a clear conscience.
