About The Webcast
The call lasted about an hour – and as I checked the recording, I only noted one blooper – in my first mention of Julieanna’s new book in the introduction I called it The Vegetarian Diet, and of course I meant to say The Vegiterranean Diet!
On this call, Julieanna addresses, among other topics:
- 1. What is the premise of The Vegiterranean Diet?
- What makes your version of the Mediterranean diet unique from the traditional one?
- Why did you remove the olive oil from the traditional Mediterranean diet?
- How many recipes and what types do you include?
- You have a new pyramid and plate you created for the book…what makes them different from the Plant-Based Pyramid and Plate you developed several years ago?
- Tell us about how you set up your meal plans, because it is not a typical method.
Julieanna also talked about The Blue Zones, the “3 C’s” of what we eat, and where wine fits in
Several attendees also presented questions that Julieanna answered during the call:
- Please address how this diet can work for diabetics
- What are your thoughts on using a small amount of olive oil for salad dressings? Should we avoid oil altogether or is a limited amount allowed on your Vegiterranean plan?
- Curious. If the Mediterranean has such a solid history of health and longevity (I’m Mediterranean) why change it? My parents ate a solid Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil and small amounts of meat, dairy, etc. My father lived a healthy life to 93 and my mother to 87. They worked hard and had fairly stressful lives. Not sure a different diet would have better. BTW, I’m a gluten free vegetarian but indulge occasionally when visiting relatives.
- When I went gluten free I lost 12 lbs quickly…….I’m 62 and it’s not easy for me either. for me the wheat/gluten was the thing that was keeping my weight up

Original Posting About This Event
Always on the lookout for resources to advance your plant-based journey, I invited Julieanna Hever, The Plant-Based Dietitian, to be my special Teleclass guest on Thursday, December 4 – and you’re invited!
Julieanna will be telling us all about her new book, The Vegiterranean Diet. Sign up for this no-charge call/webcast below. Even if you can’t make this call LIVE, sign up so that I can send you the call recording.
Mediterranean Diet vs. Vegiterranean Diet
The Mediterranean diet has been the gold standard dietary pattern for decades, and with good reason: it has been linked with lowered risks of cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s. But scientific research has found that animal products—including seafood, poultry, eggs, and dairy (which are all a part of what we think of as the traditional Mediterranean diet)—are associated with excess weight, chronic disease,and ecological degradation.
Now, Julieanna Hever, R.D. – registered dietitian and plant-based expert – transforms the Mediterranean diet into the “Vegiterranean” diet with whole-plant foods.
The Vegiterranean Diet more effectively promotes long-term health and weight management than the common Mediterranean meal plan. With Vegiterranean meal basics, nutritional concerns, flexible menus, and more than forty easy, delicious recipes, you’ll reap the benefits of the most researched and beloved diet—made even healthier.
Officially titled The Vegiterranean Diet: The New and Improved Mediterranean Eating Plan–with Deliciously Satisfying Vegan Recipes for Optimal Health this book is available for pre-order NOW on Amazon and your favorite bookseller.

“The Mediterranean region revealed to us the secret of long-term health and disease prevention, and I will show you how and why these successful behaviors can easily be implemented into your life. This book is me—my heart, soul, mind, and passion—on a plate along with salad, hummus, and a glass of wine … may it inspire you to eat and enjoy whole, plant foods … TO YOUR HEALTH!”

Thank you for this information.
Certainly Alan! Hope you’ll be joining us on the call.
I’m having a real hard time losing the weight I put on a few years ago. I started out following Mcdougall Furmann and now have a library of asst. plant based books. I love this way of eating, Potatoes br. rice peas corn warms my heart.I.m just really getting frustrated why I can’t slim down,when all the books I read and the blogs I follow claim how easy and effortless it is to do.
I hear you – it’s almost as if there’s an elephant in the room, especially for ‘women of a certain age’ – you’ll see some discussion about this in a quite recent blog post right here on the Plant-Based Journey blog here:
Scroll to the bottom of the page and read some of the discussion topics. I received several emails when this was published on the very topic you present.
Is this a question for Julieanna, or me?
