The Mediterranean Diet by Dr Anthony Mariani

Congratulations to our Gastroenterology Consultant, Dr Anthony Mariani on the release of his follow up book, The Mediterranean Diet: Recipes from Mediterranean Kitchens.

In his book, Dr Mariani highlights the principles of a Mediterranean diet and its major elements, as well as providing practical ways for incorporating them into your lifestyle.

He discusses the benefits associated with adopting a traditional Mediterranean diet, including “simplicity of recipes, nutritional balance and great taste”.

More than 100 authentic recipes from various countries are included, many of them handed down through generations and sourced from families of Mediterranean background.

Dr Mariani’s first edition of The Mediterranean Diet: Food, Science and Health focuses on the history of the diet and its prevention benefits in various diseases, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, heart disease, strokes, cognitive impairments, cancer and many inflammatory disorders.

He also examines evidence for employing a Mediterranean dietary pattern as a weapon in treatment and prevention of obesity in Western countries.
