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.

Bought this book to help with a dissertation about the Mediterranean diet and found it to be a fantastic source of information. Dr Simopoulos outlines the health benefits of Omega fatty acids and the ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids which should be consumed in order to prevent disease. It is based on scientific evidence and is very clear and easy to understand. This book was an invaluable aid to my study but I would recommend to all for the health benefits which can be acheived.

This book offers down-to-earth advice on diet, which is based on scientific evidence and common sense. The Dr Simopoulos is committed to improving public health and her idea of publishing a popular diet book was a stroke of genius. She clearly outlines the health benefits of omega fatty acids in the prevention common diseases and offers practical ideas for the kitchen. The style of the book is pleasant and easy to read, which makes this book a gem. There should be a copy in every household, library and surgery.
