'I am obsessed with The Pioppi Diet . . . I feel leaner, energised, definitely less bloated and more healthy. I genuinely feel like this is no longer a diet plan, it's just the way I eat' SARA COX __________________ We are not being given the truth about our health . . . We're told to avoid saturated fats, we're marketed health food that is laden with sugar and we're encouraged to pound out miles at the gym. However, our chances of getting obese are increasing - raising our risk of Type-2 diabetes, cancer, dementia and heart disease. Yet in the tiny Italian village of Pioppi, life is as simple as it is long and healthy. There is no gym, no supermarket, the food is delicious and they enjoy a glass of wine every evening. Now cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra - a world-leading obesity expert and Britain's number one anti-sugar campaigner - and acclaimed filmmaker Donal O'Neill combine the wisdom of this remarkably long lived population with decades of nutrition and medical research to cut through long-standing dietary myths and create this easy-to-follow lifestyle plan. Indulge in delicious food for a happier, healthier and longer life . . . * A creamy crab and ricotta omelette with sliced avocado * Grilled halloumi and kale salad with tahini yoghurt dressing * Monkfish skewers and basil pesto * Steak burger with mature cheddar, tomato and avocado * Cauliflower steaks and crumbled feta, za'atar and chilli * Prosciutto, burrata and tomato salad with basil dressing * A one-dish roasted aubergine with feta, herbs and yoghurt dressing __________________ This isn't a diet or lifestyle, which requires saying 'no' to the things you love, or exercising for hours upon end. In just three weeks, The Pioppi Diet will help you make simple, achievable and long-lasting changes to how you eat, sleep and move - changes that all of us, no matter how busy we are, can make.
