For anyone who thinks it is impossible to lose weight without giving up tasty, filling foods, this book will be a godsend. Many weight-loss programmes make the same claim, yet 'The Italian Diet' by Gino D’Acampo makes weight loss healthy, satisfying and, unusually for a diet book – interesting!
The Italian Diet is based on the traditional Italian way of eating and, thankfully, no food groups are banned or limited. Everything is fresh and healthy and includes fish, lean meats, pulses, fruit and vegetables and olive oil.
The dishes are easy to prepare and ingredients are readily available. With his motto, "minimum effort, maximum satisfaction," Gino D’Acampo has ensured that whether cooking for one or the whole family, the recipes he presents will be easy and totally delicious.
