I recently picked up a copy of 'The Sonoma Diet' at half priced books. It is basically the Mediterranean diet meets the Sonoma region of California. It is written by a nutritionist who has made some tweaks to the mediterranean way of eating and gave it her own name - most likely as a gimmick to sale books! She recommends way more meat than you would find in the traditional Mediterranean way of eating but that is the American way. She also breaks it into three sections. The first to get you started is more severe, the second is the 'diet' lose waite section, and the third is the maintenance section. Stages 2 and 3 are totally Mediterranean. She has a lot of recipe's in this book, and every single one that I tried are fantastic. Seriously good. So really to recap - there are many different countries and styles of eating in the mediterranean region. This book add a new region to the mediterranean called Sonoma, CA. If you are interested I would skip stage 1 go right into stage 2 and call it what it is, the Mediterranean way of eating.

thank you rebecky. omg what an excellent article. i yelped my way through all on the list and saved my favorites to visit in the future. my mouth is watering. emoticon
so being that i am new to the Mediterranean way of eating. is the Mediterranean way like the sonoma diet? friday morning on the today show they had a segment on the sonoma diet while hoda and kathie lee exercised 1 hour live on the show. is pasta the best thing for you when you are trying to lose weight? what is the difference between the sonoma and mediterranean diet?

i wanted to share this video from friday on the today show. it was kinda funny. brian williams came on the show while the ladies are on ellipticals working hard to burn the calories and he starts eating a jelly donut in front of them. this had me laughing out loud cause brian is such a serious journalist. it was fun to see his comedic side. loved it.
