My 2007 book, The Advanced Mediterranean Diet: Lose Weight, Feel Better, Live Longer is now available in PDF format for $9.95 USD. It’s not a low-carb diet book, but a calorie-restricted, balanced diet incorporating the healthy features of the traditional Mediterranean diet. The physical book is also available from Amazon or CreateSpace.
My editor and I weren’t thinking globally when we finished the book: measurements are in U.S. customary units. The average reader can convert to other units with minimal hassle.
Loss of excess weight can be accomplished by measuring either carb grams or calories. If you can handle monitoring your calorie consumption—and I make it as easy as possible in the book—then the Advanced Mediterranean Diet is a good way to go. Due to the relatively high carbohydrate content of the traditional Mediterranean diet, however, people with diabetes or prediabetes should do better with carb-counting, as in the Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet or Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet.
Either way, I got you covered.

Not that it’s “high carb” either though….I have created personalised menus based on your tables (as per spreadsheet(s) I have sent) and it comes out for me at only around 38-45% carbs – certainly not to be considered high carb.
Interestly – that is the case even with the semi-vegetarian version!
Of course, it can’t be high carb when you’re allowing at least 35% calories from fat and still keeping protein to around 15-20%
A brilliant work…..
Now that it interesting, Steve!
Thanks for the comment.
