Slimmer: The New Mediterranean Way to Lose Weight Book Review & Giveaway -- ENDED

I was contacted to review Slimmer: The New Mediterranean Way to Lose Weight Book. Since I am all about eating healthy and losing weight, I could not wait to check it out. The author, Harry Papas, lost 110 lbs on his diet plan, so of course I was curious on what type of food he was eating.
One of the things I really like about this book is that it promotes eating fresh fruits and vegetables, there is no processed food in his diet plan. In addition to the clearly lay out meal plans, the book also offers a lot of great recipes. I have tried several of the recipes and I loved everything I made so far. Having purchased many cook books in the past, I really appreciate the fact that Papas' book offers easy to make meals. I especially like that I haven't come across a single recipe where it contains an ingredient that's hard to find.

For instance, I made Slimmer Egg Salad for myself and the kids. I could not believe how much they loved it too.

2 large hard-boiled eggs (1 yolk only)
salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons low-fat mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese
1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 medium whole wheat pita 

Place eggs in a small bowl and mashed them to desired consistency. Stir in the remaining ingredients and fill the pita with the mixture. *This recipe makes 1 serving.

This is just one of the many easy and tasty recipes from Papas' book. To buy the Slimmer: The New Mediterranean Way to Lose Weight book, please go to amazon.com or to its official website http://www.theslimmerbook.com/

One of my lucky readers will win a copy of this book. This giveaway ends on August 13, 2012.

There is a 9 point action plan that helps activate your goal and help you maintain your weight that seems like it would be rather helpful. Also, the recipes look easy to prepare and the ingredients look like they can be found anywhere; which is always inspiring while trying to lose weight.

the Mediterranean diet eaten in Greece and specifically on the island of Crete was the healthiest for reducing heart attacks and coronary disease
