Implementing the Mediterranean Diet Implementing the Mediterranean Diet: Nutrition in Practice and Public Health situates this 'gold standard' of diets within the wider food environment by bridging the gap between the evidence-based health benefits of the Mediterranean diet and its implementation. The text explores the many approaches that can be used by health professionals to help consumers adopt this healthy eating pattern, as well as the barriers encountered with implementing this diet at home and in the wider environment. It also considers sustainable food and farming practices, and national food strategies.

A one-stop resource for food and health professionals, this seminal text demonstrates the full range of benefits that the Mediterranean diet can bring to society. This ground-breaking book:

Gives an in-depth review of the effectiveness of the Mediterranean diet in disease prevention and the management of chronic diseases
Contextualises the diet within the food environment, showing why the whole dietary pattern and minimizing the consumption of highly processed foods are both so important
Shows how to implement the Mediterranean diet, motivating and guiding consumers to make the transition
Addresses the practical and behavioural barriers to food choice in terms of taste, cost, variety, convenience and animal welfare concerns

Implementing the Mediterranean Diet is a must-have resource for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students in the food sciences, and for healthcare professionals such as dietitians, nutritionists, GPs, and health workers, especially those working in non-Mediterranean, high-income countries.
