Not sure if any of you watched Tonight but it seems the best way to lose weight and be healthy is to follow a Mediterranean diet.

Any ideas on what to eat please? smile

Basically -

lots of fruit, veg, legumes, unrefined cereals, olive oil

medium amounts of dairy products, fish

low amounts of meat and meat products

moderate amounts of wine

Or did you want more specific recipes?

You could ask your local library for this, we got one second hand and I quite like it, but we haven't really used a lot of recipes yet.

One of our staples is to chop and fry some Chorizo (not a huge amount though) then add garlic, courgettes, mushrooms, onions and peppers, fry until soft, then add a tin of chopped tomatoes - reduce down. Mix in some cannelini beans or cooked macaroni. Top with some oven baked cod or haddock. Yum.

I add chopped chilli sometimes too for a bit of kick.
