diabetic diet, Dr Malhotra, the pioppii diet

We're told to avoid

saturated fats,

are marketed

health food that

is laden with

sugar and encouraged to pound out

miles at the gym. However, our chances

of getting obese are increasing - raising

our risk of Type 2 diabetes as well as other

diseases. Yet in the tiny Italian village of

Pioppi, life is as simple as it is long and

healthy. There is no gym, no supermarket,

the food is delicious and they enjoy a

glass of wine every evening. Here, people

live on average 10 years longer than

anywhere else in the world.

In this new book, cardiologist Dr

Aseem Malhotra and Donal O'Neill

combine the wisdom of this remarkably

long-lived population with decades of

nutrition and medical research to cut

through long-standing dietary myths with

an easy-to-follow lifestyle plan which

should see readers lose weight, but also

reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes, other

diseases, while saving the NHS millions.

People with diabetes may already

need to lose weight when diagnosed,

while others might end up gaining weight

after their diagnosis. This book can help

to clear up confusion about fats and oils,

fads and fakes and gives a view on 'the

epidemic of misinformation out there'. No

small order there.

Malhotra regularly writes in academic

medical journals and newspapers such

as The Guardian, The Telegraph and

The Daily Mail and is regularly seen on

broadcast media in his campaign against

sugar and highlighting the harms of too

much medicine. O'Neill is an Irish born,

independent documentary filmmaker. A

former international track and field athlete,

in 2015 he joined forces with Malhotra to

make the movie, The Big Fat Fix (2016).

However, not everyone agrees. The

fact is that we do not have the same

access to fresh local fruit and veg that has

flourished in Mediterranean sunshine, and

nor in fact do we live in a warm climate

with loads of sunshine for ourselves.

"We shouldn't swallow claims about the

Mediterranean diets whole," says Anthony

Warner, who writes as the Angry Chef.

"Stripping away the diet from the joyful,

stress-free lifestyle is a flawed approach."

Still, there's something to be learnt

from this diet (see right), so worth a try?

The Pioppi Diet by Dr Aseem

Malhotra and Donal O'Neill is published

by Michael Joseph.

The Angry Chef: Bad Science and

the Truth About Healthy Eating, by

Anthony Warner, Oneworld Publications.

Dr Malhotra's eight steps to Pioppiing (as reported

in The Independent):

• Don't fear fat; sugar and refined carbs

are the enemy

• Keep moving - exercise for health not

weight loss (and walking is best)

• Extra virgin olive oil is medicine, as is a

small handful of nuts - eat both, every day

• Get seven hours of sleep a night

• Stop counting calories - not all are

created equal

• Eat 10 eggs a week - they're satiating

and full of protein

• Have two portions of veg in at least two

meals a day

• Fast once a week for 24 hours - have

dinner, then don't have breakfast or lunch

the next day.
