If you squint your eyes and look very carefully you can see it hurtling our way.
It’s THAT time of year again. The window when every ridiculous fad diet and bad news weight-loss plan in existence tries to stage a comeback.
The New Year always leads to a surge in daffy diets. And with everyone trying to trim down their pandemic pounds, I’ll bet this year’s schemes will be off the charts.
But ladies, if you’re overweight allow me to share a little secret that’ll make this onslaught a whole lot easier this time around. The truth is, you don’t need to try ANY one of them.
New research reveals one eating plan you can adopt that’s not difficult… isn’t a fad… and won’t require ANY major lifestyle modifications.
But it COULD save your life.
The diet that can DESTROY diabetes
You know the extra pounds aren’t doing your health any favors. And allowing them to hang around for too long is often a one-way ticket to diabetes… and worse.
You don’t need ME to tell you that. And, trust me, I know the struggle. But here’s something many people don’t realize. The problem isn’t just the weight itself. It’s the lifestyle.
You see, if you try a crash diet and lose a bunch of weight, you might get thinner. But that’s no guarantee you will be HEALTHIER.
In fact, in many cases, you will not. Plus, let’s face it, those fad diets almost never lead to long-term success. But there’s another option.
It’s not as dramatic as those get-skinny-quick schemes, of course. Instead, it leads to slow, steady, and, most importantly, healthy and sustainable weight loss. And the latest research reveals another big plus to this plan.
Incredibly, it can slash your risk of diabetes by nearly a third. So what’s this magic bullet?
Well, let’s just say you won’t see it gracing the covers of the women’s magazines at the supermarket checkout. No flashy headlines for this proven weight loss… and now DIABETES… solution. And you certainly won’t hear the celebrities talking it up on TV either.
Because it’s the tried and true Mediterranean diet. And it’s so uncomplicated and easy to follow that attaching the word “diet” to it is almost an exaggeration.
Make it Mediterranean for easy breezy weight loss
If you want to give the Mediterranean diet a try to improve your health, and slash your diabetes risk at the same time, it’s easy. In its most basic form there are only a few “rules” that can be summed up in five bullet points. Yes, REALLY.
- quit processed foods
- replace some of your red meats with fish and poultry
- pass on refined junk carbs, stick to a modest amount of whole grains
- use plenty of olive oil
- eat as many fruits and veggies as you want
You can even have a little wine on this “diet.” And yes, with your doc’s permission, even if you’re at risk for diabetes or diabetic that INCLUDES you.

The new study finds that for overweight and obese women, sticking to this lifestyle could cut your risk of diabetes by an impressive 30 percent. But the benefits don’t end there. Other studies have found that “going Mediterranean” can slash your risk of heart attack and stroke, too.
In other words, this simple and delicious eating plan could help wipe out our biggest chronic health problems along with the leading causes of death and disability in America. Oh, and did I mention it’s DELICIOUS?
It might not be the New Year quite yet. But I don’t see any reason to wait. Get started today and you’ll begin to enjoy the benefits before you even turn the page on the calendar.
