A general mediterranean diet is based around the cuisines of people who live around the mediterranean sea which I think can vary quite alot. These sort of diets are usually high in good fats like olive oil and compromise alot of fruit, vegetables, red meat and seafood, not to mention wine. Such a diet is meant to help your health as it prevents heart disease.

The actual Sonoma diet itself was developed by Connie Guttersen and combines this sort of cuisine and lifestyle and targets weight loss through portion control and eating the right type of foods. Its not a calorie counting type diet and you're meant to enjoy your meals. It's more of a healthy lifestyle approach to dieting.

Hope that helps

Sonoma is much more structured and considered as a diet than just eating healthy mediterranean. It is much more of a roadmap to better eating habits and in doing so you can lose weight, safely and while enjoying what you eat.

Hi, can I ask you Sonoma experts if you have found it easy to get hold of a good wholegrain bread? I normally shop at Tescos so hope they will stock one. Also any advice on best type of breakfast cereal you have found?

Going to start on Monday once I have done my weekly shop this weekend and after having lunch out for a birthday on Saturday.

thanks for giving so much support on this site

Yay tescos!

I have found that Burgen do a really good linseed and soyabean bread....sounds gross but is actually really nice and once you start eating it you can't go back to white bread - it tastes wrong!

You can get this at the larger tescos i think!

Happy hunting!

i have blown it. went to a funeral yesterday very long journey there and back with breakfast lunch and tea at services. Had a bacon and sausage roll for breakfast, chicken salad for lunch then sandwich crisps and chocolate for tea! Plus wine and today I have had cheese on toast and chocolate!! Feel so annoyed with myself and now need to gete back on track.

Thanks for advice about bread. I have heard about Burgen but didn't know it would be suitable on Sonoma Diet. Will give that a try. Need to get back on track from tonights tea and tomorrow onwards. feel so angry with myself giving in to comfort eating. No willpower. First sign of anything emotional and I reach for the nice food and wine.

never going to get into my bridesmaids dress at this rate. Trying to persuade bride that I am too old to be a bridesmaid any way and to just have my kids!! Much cuter than me.

hope you are having a good week?

I have been skipping bread totally and will eventually only eat whole grain.

slow go
September was a rough start...exercise is going great, just need to really get going on the diet part now. I pray that October will be better as far as dieting (life style changes) goes.

I found eating a granny green apple and a cheese stick works for me. I just want something to crunch on and because out of bad habit & being bored I eat.
