What's the Deal with: The Saint-Tropez Diet

What's the Deal with: The Saint-Tropez Diet

Saint-Tropez will no longer be known just for "Ban de Soleil tan", because it now has its own diet. Written by Apostolos Pappas, Ph.D. (food scientist/biochemist) with famous French chefs from the Cote d'Azur consulting on recipes, this diet book contains 8 weeks of meal plans (that is a lot!!!! most books provide 2 weeks of menus).

The main principle seems to be increase your intake of omega three fatty acids. Those fatty acids seem to be very popular these days (they are even added to some fancy chocolates, I sense a new health trend building up steam. It seems like a good trend to follow.

Following this diet you basically:

  • Eat more foods containing large amounts of healthy unsaturated fats, especially omega-3 essential fatty acids.
  • Eat foods rich in vitamin A together with foods containing omega-3 essential fatty acids.
  • Eliminate foods with unhealthy ratios of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids.
  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables to boost your consumption of antioxidants.

Out of the 147 pages of the book, the most popular chapter by far is probably Why Wine is Good for Your Diet. The Saint-Tropez diet promotes lifestyle changes in eating habits with excellent French Rivera cuisine and some cutting edge nutritional science. It seems like a version of the Mediterranean Diet.

Some of the recipes look quite appealing. Order the book directly from the Saint-Tropez Diet website.
