A diet that allows red wine, chocolate and the most delicious Italian food you can imagine? The Pioppi Plan offers just that, but so much more - lose weight, de-stress and live healthier and longer with this revolutionary new programme. Pioppi itself, a small Italian village which is home to the healthiest, longest-living people in the world, offers secrets that have never before been shared- until now. Based on five years of research and drawing on over 100 studies on Pioppi, Dr Aseem Malhotra, a trained cardiologist, has created a plan which is designed to provide readers with the joy and wellbeing of a Mediterranean lifestyle by making small 'marginal gains' over a 21-day period. Each little change the book encourages you to make will add up to weight lost and years gained, across eight key areas- diet, movement, sleep, stress management, sunshine, exercise, posture and social interaction. This isn't a diet or lifestyle which requires saying 'no' to the things you love, nor exercising for hours upon end, but rather making simple, achievable and long-lasting changes.
