His motto is, “you gotta be able to cook, otherwise losing weight will be near impossible”.
His Mediterranean diet consists of lots of home-cooked meals, using colorful fruits and vegetables and legumes. The way our Yiayia’s used to cook. The ‘Modern Mediterranean’ diet is NOT the same Mediterranean Diet that our ancestors ate. The ancient Mediterranean Diet is primarily based around Vegetables, Fruit, Legumes, Goats and Sheep’s Milk, Red Wine, and seeds/nuts.
