Additional Details

Description: The current statistics of obesity in the United States, as well as around the world, have reached an all-time high. Over sixty percent of American adults are currently overweight with equally alarming rates among our children. Over the last three decades, a plethora of research shows that being overweight contributes to the risk of heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, as well as some types of cancer. The above statistics leave us with only one option; we must change the way we live today! 

Since the ancient times, the traditional diet of the people in the island of Crete seems to be ideal for good health. Studies show that this group of people live the longest and have the lowest percentage of heart attacks and cancer. 

"Healthy Living From A Greek Island" models the diet and lifestyle of the people in Crete. It features delicious recipes prepared from fresh ingredients with a wide selection of appetizers, vegetarian dishes, meat, poultry and seafood dishes, and a small selection of desserts for an occasional indulgence.
